Is it grammatically correct to say 'Mr.President' ?
Mr. followed by a common noun?

Why not? Did not Shakespeare himself use expressions such as "Master Bellows-Mender" instead of the rudeness of an abrupt, unadorned, "Hey, you, Bellows-Mender!"? What about "Madam Chairman", which might be regarded as sexist, but it is hardly ungrammatical.

Mister or Madame President is the proper way to address the President.Source(s): http://select.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=F1... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._President_(title)

hm idk if it's grammatically correct, but when someone says Mr. President, they are referring to the president as President, as if that were his/her name. It's just what we Americans say to be polite to our president.
