Obama Doesn't Return Marine's Salute, Shakes Hand Instead - Is This a Protocol Misstep?

May 24, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: 1450 WILM NEWSRADIO

CBS News' White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted this morning that President Barack Obama did not return a salute to a Marine before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn: Under gray skies and intermittent drizzle, President Obama boarded Marine One at 9:30 a.m. EDT in an open press event.

I really think Obama thinks the office of President is a Joke. Golfing, Vacations, concerts at the White House, all while the admoinistration is spinning out of control.

He really is an INCOMPETENT BOOB

Just goes to show you what he thinks of the military. Getting Marines to hold umbrellas, failure to salute the uniform. Hell even when he did salute, it was wrong and half asses to begin with.

Good grief… you bitter loser truly have nothing, NOTHING… when this is an issue for you idiots to gnaw at.
The President has a lot on his mind constantly, and if something so minor slips by (kind of like saying “Thank you” if someone holds the door for you) it is not the end of the world. But then for him to come back and shake the Marine’s hand and have a brief conversation shows that he quickly realized breech of protocol…

But the losers need something else to fixate over because they will never get over the fact that the Black guy won… TWICE, LOL!

Just go ahead and gnaw away tea-baggers… have fun.

Geez the Hyena cons! Most Presidents did not salute the Marines. Obama in tradition of Abe Lincoln extended the great honor to the Marine of shaking the Presidents hand. Very commendable.

I really don't care for Obama as far as being president of America. I don't agree with his agenda or values;however, I agree with a previous post that said he has a lot on his mind. He is still a human being and makes mistakes. He is continually under a microscope and many are just waiting for a slip up so they can tear him down. I didn't vote for him, and I feel he's taking the country in the wrong direction, but hell this is just ridiculous. If it had been out of disrespect he would not have come back out shook his hand and said anything.

Important -Search "They Live moment of revelation" on Youtube if the above clip stops working.

If this was real what would you do? If there were really aliens that saw us as dumb expendable animals would you just sit back and take their abuse. Would it make any difference if "they" were a small group of people known as the illuminati?

The movie "They Live" made in the 1980's predicted everything that has happened and will probably come to pass in terms of citizen surveillance, drones, and psychological warfare in America. Watch the whole movie.

The same thing that happened to Nazi Germany when the citizenry embraced Nazism is happening to us. The populace was dumbed down and manipuated by the illuminati and their bought out politicians and media into being a prideful yet mindless war machine. When the illuminati were done with Germany they were left a defeated, bankrupt and villified nation. No one gives a crap today when the German people say they were lead astray by their bought out politicians. The world is simply glad that in the end they got what they deserved.

America is heading down the same path. We used to be the beacon of freedom to the world but now our country has become a modern day Nazi Germany war machine starting unprovoked wars across the globe. Many people now spit at us when we visit their countries like we are villains.

If and when we are weakened internally/financially to the point that we leave ourselves open to military attack by countries like Russia and China people will cheer our demise. We have become the bad guys because we presently ALLOW a psychopathic offshore banking cartel to run our country through bought off politicians.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

That Three Stooges clip sums up the illuminatis mindset very well -our last few Presidents have acted just like dictators.

Occupy Wall Street was started by the illuminati to weaken America and take the focus off them when the global economic collapse occurs. It then got out of control because people started focusing in on the private Federal Reserve. Now the illuminati is trying to clamp down on this movement because citizens are focusing on them and they are extremely nervous.

Wallstreet and the banks are a symptom of a greater problem. There is nothing wrong with capitalism or corporations however what we now have is crony capitalism, not true capitalism. We must swarm Washington DC and the 12 Federal Reserve Bank locations in the U.S. with massive demonstrations if we are going to take our country back. Any Occupy Wallstreet movement outside of Washington DC or the 12 Federal Reserve Bank locations is a distraction designed to keep the movement fractionalized. We must occupy the main problem, not the symptoms.

Never take freedom for granted. If you love America defend it today by getting informed and taking this country back for Americans. We WILL prevail because Americans aren't going to put up with this shit any longer. The time is now.

This one show explains everything going on. It will change your life when you see how the mainstream media is manipulating us like cattle using the political Left Vs Right paradigm. Download the podcasts and listen.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America -mainland China style. Get the sunglasses and spread the word before it's too late. Learn to spot/ignore government paid trolls.

Marine Corps regulations state you DO NOT salute if you aren't wearing a cover (that's a hat)...so if Obama wasn't wearing a hat then he didn't need to return the salute of the Marine. It wasn't expected of him.

A private could walk past a general and if the private wasn't wearing a cover, he wouldn't salute the general. By the same token, if the general wasn't wearing his cover he also wouldn't return any salutes he received.

Longstanding tradition requires members of the military to salute the president. The practice of presidents returning that salute is more recent — Ronald Reagan started it in 1981.
 
Reagan’s decision raised eyebrows at the time. Dwight Eisenhower, a former five-star general, did not return military salutes while president. Nor had other presidents.

Obama needs no alibis about hats. His bypassing the Marine was an oversight. He made up for it in his usual thoughtful and gentlemanly manner.

Its the truth. 1. Obama is a civilian. 2. He was not wearing a cover anyway, so even if he was military he wouldn't have to return the salute.

The President returns salutes because he WANTS to, not because he HAS to.

But whatever, you clearly know more than I about such matters <rolls eyes>

Jimmy Carter didn't like the military and the Secret Service and treated both with disdain. Ronnie was a good guy and started a good tradition.

As much as I dislike Obama, he made up for an simple oversight.
