If Obumer had ANY class at all, he would hold his own umbrella. Not ask a proud Marine to do it. Shows just how little respect he has for our military, and how ignorant he really is.

I am not certain, but I think I have seen a picture in a 1940s vintage newspaper of a sailor or marine holding an umbrella for President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It may have been at the meeting with Sir Winston Churchill aboard the battleship HMS Prince of Wales.

If FDR is guilty, then I say shame on him too.

It is a Marine Corp tradition and a duty assignment of honor to serve the President, regardless of party. If I am not mistaken a Marine is constantly standing at the ladder of Air Force One to honor the him as well.

I think an aid should have held the umbrellas.The marine corp stands for pride and it looked stupid to see a marine standing there like that.With all the people employed there should be someone more appropriate to do things like that.

And you are being played for a fool. O)bama's minions created this Faux Scandal to try and divert attention away form F&F, Benghazi, IRS, DOJ Scandals.

No one but liberals give it more than a glance.

Sarah Palin was never president due to the Deomcrats War On Women.

If I were the President I would have held my own umbrella if at all possible. As for the guest, it may have been a better choice had they been handed an open umbrella or, by custom or protocol, someone from their staff or the White House staff would have held an umbrella for them.

It was on short notice so the President called an audible, that's his prerogative.

Oh man, you have drank the whole pitcher of Kool-Aid.. You dumbass Republicans will concoct one scandal after another. If you people aren't doctoring the Benghazi Emails your getting all butt hurt over an umbrella. That psycho Sarah Palin started the whole thing by saying “Mr. President, when it rains it pours, but most Americans hold their own umbrellas." She must not be an American because she was spotted with an "umbrella holder". The republican party is a joke, you people are thought of as fools..

FDR was 59 when he met Churchill aboard the Prince of Wales; he was only 63 when he died. True, FDR was confined to a wheelchair, but very few Americans knew that. The press, even editors who were his political foes, never mentioned it and newsreels never showed it. Nobody thought anything about it when a sailor or marine held an umbrella for him and Churchill. It was just considered part of the courtesy showed to its civilian Commander-in-Chief and a foreign allied head of government by the U.S. military.

Well thats a real stupid remark.
Where do you get racist from me stating what the marine corps stand for.
Shouldnt you have given that statement up by now since he won a second time already.Nuts like you are the problem with this country.
My father is black and my mom is white so I guess that makes me racist.What a sh!t bag you are trying to stir something thats not there to be stirred to start with.
They should have people on hand to do things like that rather they make janitors out of the military.

Thanks. Got any new faux scandals to attempt to divert attention away from Unemployment, housing, construction, tax increases, Benghazi, Fast & Furious gun smuggling, DOJ violating the Free Press, The IRS influencing the outcome of an election?

I guess not.

The marine handbook says no man in uniform is to ever hold an umbrella, only women are allowed and there is a size and color restriction. Obvious you never served and no nothing of rules and regulations.

Nobody has found any fault with the Marine. Read post #1.
