Thought you couldn’t hate Obama any more than you already do? This is absolutely absurd. Just the mere fact that he would ask (order) a Marine to do this shows he has no concept of respect. Think this is photoshopped? I got it from the CNN website. It’s completely true. Do a web search and you’ll see multiple sources. This President is absolutely worthless.
Title ten of the Armed Forces US Code says that members of the military do what is asked of them by their Commander in Chief. The man next to them is the Prime Minister of Hungary. It would be bad show to let the rain fall on the head of a visiting diplomat, and any Marine on Presidential duty is honored to be there. This is not about the umbrellas, it is about treating visiting dignitaries with honor and respect. To only have an umbrella over the head of Prime Minister Orban would be a sign of superiority or strength over the visiting PM. The president did the correct thing in the situation by showing enough respect for his fellow leader and giving them both an equal platform.
Y’all need to stop freaking the fuck out over stupid shit like umbrellas.
also he didn’t think he even needed the umbrella, thus resulting in this picture of him checking if it was even raining even more aka my favorite picture of him ever:
Speaking as the son of a former Army officer, OP’s post is even more disrespectful towards the Marine in the photo - and the US military in general - than it is towards the President. It shows that literally the only part of being in the military OP has respect for is the part that involves killing others and that is not the biggest part of the military by a long shot and is not the part of military service most members joined for. People join the military to serve the nation, and part of that is stuff like this. There is a reason active duty military do not and are not supposed to discuss their opinions of a President during that President’s term. The President is the Commander in Chief regardless of who they actually are. Republican, Democrat, third party, no longer existent party: it does not matter. Being art of the White House guard and the Presidential detail, especially when a foreign dignitary or leader is present, is one of the biggest honors in the military.
But it’s a fucking umbrella, so complaining about it in the first place is massively moronic.
Reblogged for the commentary, not for the original poster.
Not to fucking mention: Bush, Palin, Reagan, and nearly EVERYONE ELSE has had a service member hold their damn umbrella at some point. How about if we pick on something we pick on something important?
I don’t mean to put Tumblr users in a political binder, but I’ve always thought most Tumblr users were democrats. Or at least Republicans who were smart enough to realize this: Obama is doing what every president before him as done. People bitch about Obama going on vacation; studies show that Obama has spent fewer days on vacation IN BOTH OF HIS TERMS than Bush did in his first term. I’m not even going to touch on the umbrella issue since the users above me have touched on it pretty good.
Point is: As long as Obama isn’t personally violating your rights and threatening to take away your freedom, shut up about him. Ignore him. If you hate him so much, stop reading news articles about him. Turn off the TV when he appears on it. LEAVE THE ROOM WHEN HE IS ON TV. CHANGE THE FUCKING CHANNEL. DO ANYTHING BUT BITCH ABOUT HIM. Yes, you have Freedom of Speech and I respect that but there comes a time when Freedom of Speech becomes a PRIVILEGE and not a RIGHT.
I think we should be able to bitch about the President. Sure, this post is idiotic, but educated bitching is perfectly fine and even good. Obama is not this unapproachable god who does no wrong. Some things he does deserve criticism. Not all, not this, but some.Source: moddedcarbine
Look, if you nicely tell me that swearing makes you uncomfortable and you politely ask me not to, I will stop immediately and speak nicer than a nun.
But if you start acting like you’re on some fucking high horse, or telling me that I’m going to Hell for talking the way that I do and you can’t “be around that kind of language” then you can bet your motherfuckin’ ass that I’ll be fucking cussing like a cunt-fuckin’ sailor you maggot-ridden piece of dick.
