And yes, I guess I do have respect for the office itself, because it's one reason I hate him so much--he's so unworthy of the office, which is such a powerful one, with so much influence over this country for good or ill. It's a respectable office, inhabited by a man who deserves no respect.

See, the way I am looking at it is that the office represents the idea of this elected official representing the US populace.
This is why I say the problem of disrespect seems to begin within the office itself. Now, becoming President of the US is all about power--not humility and serving the people who voted you in.
So, you could say that the lack of respect for the Presidency--by the President--could be seen as a lack of respect for the people who chose him. And of course, couple that with an apathetic population too bored and busy watching TV to be insulted...and here we are.
