Insulter in Chief

The ability to engage in in-your-face, I’m-more-clever-than-you-are insults is a stage in growing up.  Some people are very good at this skill, using the tactic of putdowns to prop themselves up.  It is easy to gain friends and a following, for at least a short period, by showing how adept you are at insulting an opponent.  But we elect presidents to lead, not to demean the highest office in the land by parading their skills at insulting whoever may disagree with them.  We expect children to eventually grow up.  We expect presidents to lead by example.
