Obama: Everyone wants a little R-S-P-E-C-T

posted at 12:41 pm on March 7, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via the Free Beacon, he was probably just tired. He’s been up late all week on the phone, listening to Putin tell him to get bent over Crimea. Respect is a very foreign concept these days at the White House.

Can’t every American over the age of 40 spell this word just by singing it?

Everyone may want respect, but one will usually only get it by earning it not simply by wanting it, expecting it or whining for it, and so far Bammy has only earned derision and disdain, multiplied.

Really. After all, adding “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” to the lyrics was Aretha’s (or sisters Ema’s and Carolyn’s) great contribution to her cover of Otis Redding original.

Obama: It ain’t the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I’m smart! Not like everybody says… like dumb… I’m S-M-R-T and I want R-S-P-E-C-T!

“When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans, and women, and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved. They wanted some respect,” the president said.
