Yes, but there has been a swing away from respect. It used to be that the office of the president was respected, regardless of political party. Policies were disagreed with but there was debate, courtesy and common ground in some cases.
Line that up with the budget fiasco's of recent years and the rhetoric and sheer utter contempt and polarisation displayed first against Bush, and now Obama.
