Perhaps the 2 interviewers were , and have been , Clinton supporters. This would be a "dig" against a current President.

I've been hearing presidents referred to interchangeably as Mr. and President for at least 20 years.

Yeah it is not uncommon. People tend to change things up a bit and not say President in every sentence. I have also seen President often just referred to by last names when commentators are talking. Just Bush, Obama, Reagan etc.

Depends on when you caught the telecast. If you were in the middle, it was probably "Mr Obama" as the proper title was given as the beginning of the segment as "Mr. President..."

This is wholly acceptable in print and television.

This may be nothing, but seems odd to me. While watching CBS news, they keep calling Obama "Mr. " and not "President", is that normal? I see past presidents referred to as "President", long after their term.



I reckon its either a subtle put down, or its the beginning of a new title change. Perhaps in the not too distant future what is now known as the office of president will be called the Chief Executive Officer or CEO.

Most change is implemented very slowly. I know some will argue that its the same dog different action and too suspicious but I've learned over the years how just a slight change in terminology can make a big impact on function and role.

I guess to be called president he would need to act like one.

I just heard "W" being called president bush on TV stumping for jeb...not former, not mister, but, President Bush.....and he has been one of the worst Presidents we've had in modern times...in my opinion, of course....on the other hand, who gives a crap about this with everything else going on.

completely agree that it's trivial, but I don't ever remember hearing anyone do this to any sitting president. I feel that Obummer is the worst we have seen, but being former military, I understand and respect the office and would never let my opinion degrade my military bearing. (or X as it were)
