Barack Obama Fails to Return Salute US Marine While Boarding Marine One on His Way to Give Commencement Address at Naval Academy


Barack Obama, the Commander in Chief failed to return salute US Marine while boarding Marine One.

Who knew that President Obama needed a teleprompter or cue cards that say, “salute Marine while boarding helicopter?” As reported at the Weekly Standard, President Obama boarded Marine One without returning salute of US Marine at the steps. UNREAL. Obama later came out and shook the hand of the Marine as obviously someone on Marine One most likely old him to. How does a Commander in Chief not return salute a US Marine? Especially seeing that he was getting on Marine One to give a Commencement Address at the US Naval Academy. What is wrong with this man? What an embarrassment.

What else would we expect from the Campaigner in Chief, the Divider in Chief and the Golfer in Chief?  From Salon, Twitter shreds Obama for non-salute.

Of course Obama had no problem using the Marines as his personal umbrella holder, but some how he could not see fit to salute a Marine, on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend.

      He’s without respect for this country and those that serve and protect our country. Impeach him!!!
      It’s quite clear he is not an American, a communist, supporter of terrorism, leader of evil. He made a statement once that said 911 was our fault!!!! His leadership as President should be dissolved.

      You can begin by removing the walkway up to Air Force One.

      There’s enough evidence to prove he is unfit to serve our country, we need to remove him from office NOW!!!!

      Obama refuses to place his hand over his heart during our National Anthem. How many more signs do people need to recognize and admit to his demise?

      Perhaps, much like Holder, the ‘President’ is preoccupied
      with ‘investigating himself’ instead of carrying out the
      traditional duties of a President of the United States.
      Fame and power certainly have a corrupting effect on nice
      folks like him.

      Oh wait ..nobody told him protocal. Preoccupied? Possibly…with bettering his golf.

      Wow. No doubt about It! Anyone who hates Obama IS a racist, and YOU ARE a racist, bigoted, black-hating scumbag!

      Well, in Junta USA, anything militaristic is mandatory. But since the president is not a military figure, he should not return salutes. You can know this because the neocons are outraged that he didn’t. It is a recent practice, that we owe to the man Ralph Raico describes as the “poor halfwit Reagan.” Obama’s recovery was a class act! Comments like yours demonstrate hate beyond reason.
      SM I guess it takes a halfwit to know one.

      You really would not know what a racist was if it bit you in the a$$. It is truly shameful and ignorant that you would use such a term when it does not exist. Get a clue.

      We allowed your comment to show just how foolishly ignorant and beyond Kool-Aid drinking some people are. People’s words can be damning. The President of the United States is the Commander in Chief you fool. Or at least they used to be before we had one like this one who just uses the military for political PR photo-ops. The salute is a sign of respect that the President is the Commander in Chief and if you do not think it was inappropriate, why did Obama do it prior?

      Oh wait, here’s another doozy from this so-called Commander in Chief … saluting while on the cell phone

      Obama had no problem saluting here.

      Or here

      thank you SM. your remarks are totally correct and you saved my keyboard from a heck of a pounding.

      Thank You SM…Obama is not at all supportive of our military or our veterans, who are why we are here today and our currently enlisted military. I doubt very much if he the watched the televised Memorial Day tribute to our veterans. It was tear jerking but it also made you so proud to be an American and what America, our country, stands for.. Solders in World War II, wounded and dying laid themselves down in front of the solders who were in battle. They put up a barrier and took the shots to protect the their fellow soldiers. Obama should be impeached for all the things he has done and he purposely opposed the people of our great country. I still do not believe he is an American and he well knows that he isn’t. Rotten scum!!!! As Caroline Kennedy said, she cannot stand to listen to him speak nor can she stand looking at him.
