Dear Mr President, Am I Free to Say Your Name?

Protocol demands the proper way to directly address the US President is as "Mr President." Has anyone (not related) to the current or former US President ever publicly addressed them by his first or last name directly to his face? What happened? If this hasn't happened, what would be the consequences of doing so?

George Bush doesn't care about single-link op-eds, according to his recent MeTa post.

Does the US President have a "Personal Computer" in the same sense that I, and most of you do? What would/does he use it for? What kind of insane security must it have? The answer is probably "He is much too busy to own a computer," but any information whatsoever would help sate my curiosity.
