Obama’s Half-Cup Salute To Marines

obama_caricPresident Barack Obama caught some heat from his critics on Tuesday after he returned a formal military salute holding a coffee cup in his saluting hand.  Many of the commenters on the White House’s Instagram page were not kind:

“Oh my gosh. How shameful. At least switch the cup to your other hand barry and give these MEN the respect that they DESERVE,” one user wrote.

“A disgrace to the office and a dishonor to the USMC!!!” another commented.

“This is embarrassing – ‘whitehouse’ needs to take this post DOWN now,” a different user complained.

While some argued it was no big deal, the Daily Caller noted that a Marine Corps manual states a person should not salute while “carrying articles with both hands or being otherwise so occupied as to make saluting impractical.”  here

Maybe the Marine Corps manual reigns supreme in this instance, but . . . . I find this in very poor taste and disrespectful.  Our military deserves more respect than this.  But, it is Barack Hussein Obama.  He probably only puts down his cup, phone or burger, for himself.

    He continues to be disrespectful to our soldiers time and time again. Obama also knows that the media is watching yet he still doesn’t give one hot crap about it! Disgusting behavior to say the least. 😡

      I agree. Sorry for your comments… for some weird reason, Word Press auto throws many things in SPAM that shouldn’t go there. It’s become annoying, but not sure what I can do about it, except check many times a day. This used to never happen.

        At least I’m not the only one… just didn’t want Approved commenters to think they we’re unapproved.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
