Jon Stewart Called President Obama "Dude."
Ever since the days of George Washington, our President has been referred to as "Mr President."
Does Jon Stewart calling the president "dude" indicate a lack of respect, or does it just represent how casual our attitude in general has become to authority?
After all, I don't doubt that Jon Stewart respects the President. I think he respects any president - even ones he doesn't agree with. However, overall Americans have had an increased irreverence for authority.
What do you think about Jon Stewart calling Obama "dude"?
