Best Answer

Sitting means "current" or "active" president. According to the smarties on StackExchange politics, it is acceptable, to call ex-presidents "Mister [lastname]", or "Former President", or even "Mister President" - even though they no longer have that role. Famously, Marilyn Monroe addressed a sitting member of the executive staff (President Kennedy) as "Mister President" in a happy birthday song, and most guys who listened to that.. well, their members were standing rather than sitting afterwards. ;)

A sitting president is the current president. US Presidents are called "President" until they die, reference therefore to the present-day president is made as 'sitting President'.
