Talk:President of the United States of America
I like the change of color on the Presidents graphs that say when they lived, what their party was etc. Blue is a far better color than purple in this case. -Additioner 14:04, 23 July 2007 (EDT)
The first section is a bit rough, I'm going to do a quick rewrite and see if we like it better? Samwell 14:43, 15 September 2007 (EDT) PS I'm going to move "POTUS" to a trivia section below as well. SW
Confusing Sentence re. double job description
What is the intended meaning of the sentence:
- "The writers of the constitution recognized that they were writing a job description which, in England, was and is filled by the office of the Prime Minister and position of the Monarch."
Is it that, in England, the equivalent position takes both people mentioned? Or is it that the job in the US is equal to those two roles combined into one? Neither of these statements is correct. I would reword it but want to discover what people mean? FNNoonan 18:40, 4 February 2009 (EST)
The use of the middle name
I have a question concerning the use of the middle name of His Excellency the Honourable Barack H. Obama II, and the fact that the middle names of the other former presidents of the United States are not written. I have no problem with the fact that His Excellency has a name that celebrates his origins on his father's side, and that is something that he should be promoted in a multicultural society, however, I am wondering if this fact that His Excellency's middle name of Hussein is not used as a attach to His Excellency.
I think we should list all of the names the same. If we list Obama's middle name in full then we should list the full middle name of all other presidents as well. If we only put the middle initial of all other presidents then we should put the middle initial for Obama as well. (Jvclark2 12:41, 7 July 2011 (EDT))
- Nope, it's been discussed already. Obama forbid the use of his middle name during his campaign. Upon inauguration, he chose to use his full name and so shall we. Retroactively applying middle names to all former presidents is non-starter here. --Jpatt 12:52, 7 July 2011 (EDT)
