His First Name is "President"

OK, look. I’m pretty much apolitical.  I have my own set of beliefs and I vote accordingly.  So, what I’m about to say has nothing to do with politics.

It drives me absolutely up-the-wall that those in media and elsewhere refer to President Obama as “Obama”.  Just “Obama”, his last name.  I think that is disrespectful, to the man but, more importantly, to the Presidency.  I’m not sure if the last name reference is done to be derogatory? Maybe we’re trying to save syllables in Sound Byte land? But, let’s just stop it.  Call the man his rightful title, “President Obama”.  Call the next President, whoever that is, “President Xx”.

‘Kay?
