Is it ever OK to refer to the President as Barry or Barack? [View all]

Last edited Tue Jan 22, 2013, 09:55 AM - Edit history (1)

I'm debating with someone about this in another forum. I think only Michelle Obama can refer to him as "Barack". I think he should only be referred to as Obama, Barack Obama, President Obama or Mr. Obama.
