today’s KisP fun facts

The commander in chief of the American armed forces today forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldn’t get wet.

According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform. There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carrying an umbrella.

Nevertheless, during a press conference under a light drizzle with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan this morning, President Obama allowed the First Head to be protected from the elements by an umbrella held by a male Marine corporal…

    If nothing is done, and if nothing continues to be done, about this traitor and his traitor-stuffed administration, the death toll will be in the millions before he is finished with his “fundamental transformation” of America.

    Trivia point (besides the mind of Obama):
    It’s the same in the Army. No umbrellas.
    It was the same with my father (probably because the Army was his first, and true, alma mater). No umbrellas.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if the vomit did not know that protocol, and I know he would disrespect it if he knew.

    What the hell would he know about Marine Corps regs.??? He can hardly make himself salute them.

    IIRC correctly, umbrellas were ok in the Navy, but only if held by the left hand so you could salute when appropriate.

    I recall distinctly that Navy Regs specifically prohibited any officer ordering someone junior to perform any tasks for personal benefit. I find the image of Marines holding an umbrella, or walking a dog (Clinton administration) to be demeaning and highly inappropriate.

    Nope. He’d float like a turd in a swimming pool.

    So Obama would not order Marines to save the Ambassador and others in Libya but he sure would order them to keep him from getting wet.

    That just shows his priorities are all about himself.

    See? Now, this is why I admire Marines.
    They cope. (or is it corp, corps, corpse?)
    I mean, how many of us could have stood there and not shoved that bumbershoot up his ass and then opened it?

    Then again, mebbe he had a Marine hold it,
    ’cause neither Obama nor his staff knew how to.

    It’s outrageous to publicly demean a trained warrior to a role of a servant.

    I thought that was Reggie Love’s job as Uhbama’s body man. Guess he was busy getting condoms or blowing up basketballs or humping moochelle or whatever he does..
