I assume you have never seen this done for other presidents before. There are numerous photos of this type on the internet. Perhaps they were all wrong as well. I am sure there was not a marine that was troubled by this. I would have gladly done it for any president as a show of respect for the country.

i served my country, and although it is considered an honor to be assigned to the white house (no, i never was) i agree that was a bunch of crap. yahoo has a video of it. the stupid joke he made to get them and the remark afterwards was uncalled for.

@ Your opinion, no i have never seen that before. even the article mentions staff members doing that.

@ Republican, not only in the USA, but in the world, and no, it's not respect. not one single person ever signed up to be someone's umbrella holder. i didn't! so until you served your country, you can't speak from the mind of a military member, and hence, since you think you can, you're nothing more then a dumb ass redneck piece of dog shit on my shoe.

Actually having them hold those umbrellas is completely against Marine rules. Obama knew that, and wanted to make fun of them.
