Your anti-Semitic tone is completely unnecessary.
The fact that the entire Democrat Party and Obama administration is anti-Semitic leads one to believe that you are an Obama plant.
Actually, being a Jew myself, and living in Chicago for several years, he is not off the mark. The liberal Jews are liberals first. Judaism doesn't really matter to them. They have quit following doctrine and support abortion-communism-socialism-g ay marriage-Palestine terrorists, Helen Thomas, and J Street etc etc. Because they are liberals. Most of the liberal Jews hate the rest of the Jews--and in Chicago-very few are not liberals.

Military men have held umbrellas for dignitaries & Presidents in the past, dumbsass.
Just seems they could have planned ahead and been prepared to hold the press conference indoors at the last minute just in case of rain and by checking the forecast.

If our president had to be covered with an umbrella at a press conference outside in the rain in another country, I'd think the same thing.

The far left Progressive movement is very dangerous

"I am not an American .... just a Russian national who is now a Canadian citizen looking from the outside in .... and I am just shaking my head. There is something terribly wrong in the U.S. right now .... when the IRS has been politicized to go after a specific political group, it does not take a 'political scientist and historian' to know that you are entering a very dark place .... and being one who grew up in such a place (the former Soviet Union).... trust me on this one .... it is a place that you do not want to find yourself living in."

Agree, one poster here keeps attempting to justify the IRS actions. The logic is they are 'evil' groups or some other illogical ideology.

When I, too, saw that Marine holding the umbrella, I found it bizarre. I'm sure millions of other Americans did, too.

This was a calculated ploy to make the Jerk-In-Chief look "presidential" in the midst of all these scandals around him.

Originally, they wanted him stand on a 12' Roman Era pedestal like Caesar wearing a military Toga and shields when he gave the Press Conference.

But the rain came and they feared his slipping in the polls, so to speak.

Great article. The author successfully describes what military cohesiveness and self-motivation are. The Azzhole-In-Chief doesn't have a clue what any of this means. He's a Socialist who only knows that "You didn't build that!".

I'd love to see Gen. George S. Patton slap the Magic Negro's face and call him a coward to his shit-eatin' face.

There is countless halo pictures.

Most Progressive/Socialist ideologues push that they are like a mother and father to you. Obama wants to trump all by going for savior.

They are extremely odd and silly. The very fact that they are staged and/or photo-shopped rather than accidentally captured images makes them more bizarre.

Surely they could have staged a glowing, halo effect making him saintly and above reproach -at least in the admin's eyes.

Republicans generally and conservatives in particular canít figure out why the ambassador and his three colleagues were allowed to twist slowly, slowly in the toxic smoke of the burning consulate, and canít understand why everyone else is not as outraged as they are. How much is a human life reckoned to be worth?

In the Atlantic magazine, Walter Kirn gives a touching rendition of the conservative rube's youthful desire to be accepted into the liberal establishment ." A pure meritocracy, we'd discovered, can only promote; it can't legitimize. It can confer success but can't grant knighthood. For that it needs a class beyond itself: the high-born genealogical peerage that aptitude testing was created to supplant with a cast of brainy up-and-comers. But we still needed to impress them: the wasp New Englanders with weekend coke habits, well-worn deck shoes, and vaguely leftish politics devised in reaction to their parents' conservatism, to which they'd slowly return as they aged. They didn't have our test scores, but they had style, a charismatic aura of entitlement, and V and I were desperate for a piece of it."

Myself, instead of a halo, I think a white, padded, vinyl toilet seat would look much better.

The U S ambassador's body wasn't 'left', it was carried home to America where the ambassador was given a proper burial with full honors for his meritorious service to his country.

Instead of an umbrella, they should have had him wear Trayvon's Hoodie to keep the rain out.

And placed an Arizona Tea and Skittles on the podium or even on the lectern.

One of those 50 Gallon Sombrero's would've done the trick, too.
