Again, you nitwits have nothing but hatred and stupidity on your side.

But what's new??

""I've taken a few moments out of my day here to reflect upon the scandal that erupted when a marine held an umbrella over the head of the president, former U.S. President George H.W. Bush that is, not President Obama. Boy oh boy it sure was something back then when all the 'you-know-what' hit the fan over it.

Wasn't it?

Yeah, back in the day, before the internet, the press got a hold of it and big media and small-town media covered it extensively. You see President Bush was part of an official gathering and a marine was told to hold an umbrella over his head. The president was standing on a mini-platform so that poor marine had to reach his hands up from behind to get the umbrella in place. I'm serious!

Wow. The indignation, from all over the U.S. but in particular from Republicans, who defended the military's honor. "That Bush keeps screwing up," a younger and equally uninformed Rush Limbaugh intoned. "Making a marine look dumb by having him hold an umbrella over his head? Who does he think he is? A president engaged in conducting state business?

"Oh, yeah. Never mind."

Sarah Palin and Umbellagate, Bush style

At that time, Sarah Palin was 27-years-old. Quite naturally, argumentative Americans wanted to hear from her, too, so, knowing that her opinion mattered even back then, Palin chimed in, but not with a tweet, something she enjoys using now, because they didn't have tweets in those days (gosh, they didn't have The Tea Party or 'American Idol', either).
No, what Palin did was she shouted to a neighbor in Wasilla, Alaska, across the fence. "Did you see on the evening news that President Bush had a marine hold an umbrella over his head in the rain?" she called out. "Americans should hold their own umbrellas! True, if I run for office in 2008 I'll have people hold umbrellas for me, too (see here) but I'll make sure it's an aide, not a marine. Marine's are for invading foreign countries!"
As noted, there was no Tea Party during Bush Srs. term in office ('89 to '93), for the right-wing contingent of angry Americans hadn't yet formed into a cohesive and loopy unit, but both Michelle Bachman and Newt Gingrich were around at the time. However, though they ranted about it, no one listened because even back then they were considered irrelevant, and ignored."

You'll also see pictures of Marines holding umbrellas for Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II.

But it's ok because they're white guys, right??

Not that you asswipes are racists or anything. LOL

Limp-wristed Progressives like you are consumed with keeping good image and saving face and not at all with what is morally and ethically correct.

The IRS was completely correct in delaying tax-exempt status for Teabagger perverts.

It should be denied. These groups are filled with traitors and communists.

These folks are old, gnarly thugs dedicated to the destruction of America.

The FBI should investigate these groups.

Most of them would end up in prison for being the anti American scum they are.

Go IRS!!
