I totally get it.
You right whiners are just that whiners. "OMG OMG OMG umbrellagate!!!"
You people are way beyond ridiculous.
Wrong take a little closer look. The 'Dress Blues' are to be worn at formal or ceremonial events. Not to hold an umbrella.

KMOV St. Louis news anchor Larry Connors was "targeted" by the IRS after a particularly tough interview he conducted with DaBammy just prior to the 2012 election.

Well, maybe not.

Turns out that ole Larry and his bride had been tax cheats for a number of years.

Larry's on leave from his job presently.

Obama’s latest scandal? Umbrella-gate.

This particular scandal shouldn’t rise to the level of Congressional hearings–and the president’s critics keep glossing over one key point: he didn’t call for the umbrella for himself.

“I am going to go ahead and ask folks–why don’t we get a couple of Marines,” he said on Thursday.“Just because I’ve got a change of suits, but I don’t know about our [visiting Turkish] prime minister. There we go. That’s good. You guys, I’m sorry about.”

Why paint the president as a gracious host when you can paint him as a lazy elitist instead?

Run in there quick Flack and tell your seven black guests that Obama was taking advantage of the ceremonial White House Marine detachment.

"Attention all Republicans: This is not something new. Ronald Reagan, George H. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush all had somebody hold umbrellas over their heads at one point or another. It’s a pretty safe bet previous presidents did as well.

When you become “outraged” over an image of a Marine holding an umbrella for the President (implying he’s some elitist who refuses to even hold his own umbrella) you simply prove how desperately pathetic your party has become." http://www.forwardprogressives.com/wp-content...

That umbrella holding jarhead could have been serving in Afghanistan rather than hanging out at the White House. Hey, he still has a chance right?

What you said is not true.
Bush tried to fake a terror alert prior to the 2004 election.
President Obama has a great record of eliminating Al Qaeda leadership & a good record of fighting terrorism as proven by Romney & the Republicans not using national Security in their campaigns.
Therefore, if politics were involved, President Obama would have jumped on the Al Qaeda cause to boost his election chances just like Bush tried i 2004.
Bush-Bashing instantly defines the Basher as an idiot.

You have been defined, Idiot.
