Since when is it acceptable for an American to ask the president for something? The president is the servant of the people, not the other way around. This reminds me of a different type of relationship: slave/master or serf/noble.
Jonathon Gardner at Federal Way Conservative. (Yes, you read the rollover on that link correctly, the post is titled "Slave Begs her Master for a House")
Any road,... according to the tortured (and false) logic in the above quote, it is unacceptable to ask a servant to do something.
