Office For Life

George Stephanopoulos is interviewing Mitt Romney, and he asks him, "Governor Romney, do you believe that states have the right to ban contraception?" Disregarding the question itself, Romney has not been a governor since 2006. Was he elected to that office for life?

Similarly, some nitwit was addressing Rick Santorum, and began a question, "Senator, do you agree..." How many United States Senators do we have in this nation? Well, according to the constitution, one hundred. According to the media, several times that number, because apparently that office is held for life, no matter what the voters decide.

Bill Clinton is sometimes referred to, properly, as "Former President Clinton," but he is more often referred to simply as "President Clinton," and the media frequently addresses him as "Mister President" to this day. I have never seen him correct anyone who addressed him in that manner.

Ignorance in king in this nation, and it seems that elected office is for life.
