President Bush and Nicknames

From CNN

Sen. Ben Nelson finally has succeeded in getting President Bush to stop calling him by the nickname “Nellie.”
Bush had been referring to the Nebraska Democrat as “Nellie” since 2001. Nelson disliked the nickname and had asked the president to stop using it.
The president likes to give people nicknames. He has called Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, “Pootie-Poot,” while aide Karen Hughes gets “High Prophet.”

Does anyone see the problem with the president talking to a Senator and a foreign leader like a parent talks to a baby? Pootie-Poot???? It’s about time the President starts treating people with respect and stops making a fool of himself.

  3. What I was trying to say is, the President of the United States shouldn’t be speaking to Putin as if he were a child.

  5. Matt that’s not true. I don’t think Clinton was a saint. It’s just when Clinton was president I really wasn’t in a position to criticize him then (I was like 10 when his second term ended). Now that I have more of an interest in and am more aware about politics, I can criticize the president. If John Kerry was president now you can bet that I would be criticizing him just as much as I do Bush. But unfortunately, we will never know.

  6. …and what does Clinton have to do with the post???! It was about Bush. Not about Clinton. Not about terrorism. Not about anything else. Just about Bush.
