Nancy Pelosi is officially batshit crazy. Obama has been 'respectful" of Congressional Republicans? What cave did she fly out of?
Obama and the Democrats excluded Republicans from participation in meetings during the health care debate, going so far as to lock them out of the proceedings.
Obama made recess appointments while Congress was still in session. A violation of the Constitution.
Obama has said, and has gone around Congress using mandates from the EPA and other Federal Departments, which is in clear violation of the Constitutional separation of powers as per Article 1, Section 7.
He has been dismissive, condescending (both to Congress and the Supreme Court), and has been petulant throughout his 3+ years in office when he doesn't get his way.
He has yet to submit a serious budget to Congress that can garner even one vote! That he can't put forward something well thought out, measured, and serious in the form of a budget is disrespectful not only to Congress, but to the American people as a whole.
Obama is not respectful of anyone or anything. As a result, he is not respected here, or by other leaders around the world. Contrary to his promises, we are not more respected now, we have been weakend both financially, militarily, and diplomatically by this President.
The only thing that may have gotten better during Obama's time in office is his golf handicap.

"He has given them every opportunity for the executive and the legislative branch to work together, to have a solution that has bi-partisan support. He’s been criticized by some for taking the time that it takes to find out that they’re never going to give him a break, which is a compromise.”
