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.
OP postin’ some Fox news Facebook level shit.
some folks just wanna complain about Obama in the most absurd ways
If you’re gonna complain about Obama shall we bring up the drones?
Not some poxy umbrellas… like the military dude said, they’d be honoured to be in his presence. And a lot of times in those kinda situations it’ll be someone running around making everything’s in order i.e. being the middle man with the sound guys checking the mics work etc. the same dude probably also requested umbrellas to be held up.
A big issue you need to think about is a:) why do you look up to the president? and b:) why do you look up to the military?
So many have been brainwashed into thinking the military is good, so many join it because they think they’re doing a good thing in a moral sense, for their nation, for their people, for the world and generally. Kids are brainwashed into thinking “I want to be the president when I grow up” because they think it’s all fun and games, respect and important decisions.
They didn’t know what they were getting themselves into, and once they’d started on the path into it it was hard to turn back, or they started to change as people and wanted it.
They all kill people, they terminate the lives of innocent people, they terminate the lives of others in the exact same position but on the other side of it, all because of oil, oil = money, money is power, power is money.
Obama comes across as a lovely guy, because he probably is, as do many people in the military, they’re loving, caring, funny, compassionate people. But they’re so indoctrinated and brainwashed, then they get the taste of power and they close their eyes to the suffering they cause.
There’s a reason to bitch about Obama, Tumblr fangirls over him, saying he’s badass and whatnot, but he’s a fucking coward, with blood on his hands and you worship that?
Bolded for dat commentary.
Yeah. Hi. My father’s in the military and you’re wrong and should probably shut the fuck up.
No one is “brainwashed,” they know what they’re getting into when they join:
Meanwhile you’re mad at President Obama over a war BUSH started.
I swear I have never seen so much bullshit aimed at a president and it is so fucking annoying at this point.
Have some fucking respect for the people that protect, serve, AND DIE FOR your ungrateful ass.
My fucking god I am so over these stupid ass posts. And then there’s the clowns like “Omg that commentary! Point made.”
I just… I can’t with people like you anymore. Shit’s disgraceful.
Shout out to our first black President and all the bullshit he has to endure because everything he does is over-dramatized due to his skin pigmentation.
Since you decided to bring in an overly personal note to the argument, I will add my own as well. My father also served within the military during the height of the Vietnam war in the medical division; he’s seen the evils of war to our own men plus the innocent men and women caught in the crossfire. The war was started by Bush, yes but you’re forgetting that under Obama’s administration the use of drone strikes has skyrocketed and the amount of innocent life taken has as well.
Second of all, I did not ask the men and women of the military to go fight a war for me which will never end and is pretty much for profit and not because some boogeyman hates my freedoms. Newsflash, no one gives a fuck about where you’re from or what freedoms you have; they do care however, how you’ve fucked up their lives and home beyond recognition starting from the early fucking 50s. Do some homework before speaking.
Lol. Just lol.
Go live somewhere else if you have such a problem with the people that are protecting your rights and life.
Uh, how the fuck is someone going to kill innocent men, women, and children protecting my rights and life? How the fuck is seeing Hell on Earth protecting me? I did not ask for this, if anything they are going to fight to protect the interests of a military industrial complex whom profit massively off the wars they start.
This is the way you’re brainwashed; you think people fighting, dying, or getting massively injured mentally or physically is somehow patriotic or benefits my rights. It doesn’t. I respect the members of the armed service , so much so that I will never ask them to kill anyone on my behalf.
I’m not saying its patriotic. But it serves a purpose far less irrelevant as yours. People die so we can live; that’s how the world is. That’s how the world will always be.
To be mad at the president because of the way of the world is just dumb.
You do not respect the people of the armed forces because you are degrading and belittling their purpose, their duties. You’re actually disrespecting them a hell of a lot in this post.
But, do you. Not gonna argue with someone that’s clearly so absorbed in what they think is right that they can’t see the flaw in their approach.
