Disrespecting the Oval Office

Bush's former chief of staff is berating Obama for not wearing his suit coat in the oval office.
There should be a dress code of respect," (Andrew) Card tells INSIDE EDITION. "I wish that he would wear a suit coat and tie." 

"The Oval Office symbolizes...the Constitution, the hopes and dreams, and I'm going to say democracy. And when you have a dress code in the Supreme Court and a dress code on the floor of the Senate, floor of the House, I think it's appropriate to have an expectation that there will be a dress code that respects the office of the President."

Card continued, "I don't criticize Obama for his appearance, I do expect him to send the message that people who are going to be in the Oval Office should treat the office with the respect that it has earned over history."

What about respecting the oval office by making wise decisions while in it? The one thing we all know about Bush is that he was far from wise.

What about disrespecting the constitution and our democracy by wiretapping without warrants, ordering the torture of prisoners, setting up a concentration camp and kangaroo courts?

The list of disrespect Card's former boss did to the oval office, the constitution, our democracy and the American way of life goes way beyond the mere taking off a suit coat.

Jesus had the Republican Party pegged to a tee. In his day they were called Pharisees, but the actions and reasoning is the same: 

Jesus called them hypocrites that point to a mote (splinter) in another man's eye while ignoring a beam (log) in their own.
