.....does the media refer to a presidential candidate by his first name?<br><br>It's bad enough the news coverage leans so far to the left I have to prop my TV up with a sawhorse, but now this. <br><br>Any number of news commentators and journalists call Senator Obama "Barack." Has this ever happened before? In 2004, did they refer to President Bush as "George?" Did they call Senator Kerry "John?"<br><br>The swoon continues....<br><br>

I think it started with them calling Clinton by her first name to differentiate her from Bill Clinton. Calling her by her first name but Obama by his last would be rightly interpreted as dismissive to her. I think it's just lazy journalism but I agree that it's disrespectful.<br><br>
