Commentary: It's time to move past Obama's skin color

Barack Hussein Obama is president of the United States of America. As such, he is due the respect that the highest office of the land commands. Spew rumors, falsehoods and outright lies about his policies, about his birth place, about his intentions. That's freedom of speech. But to have public figures in Kentucky, representing conservative views, use the word "creepy" to describe Obama's plan to speak to all the nation's schoolchildren is nothing but embarrassing. Their attitude dishonors the office of the president, not just Obama himself.
