Obama Pic at Ft Hood Memorial - email and a vanity
Unknown email | Sept8, 2011 | DJMacWoW

the Ft. Hood Memorial Service...

The Crotch Salute Returns

I am sorry folks, but is this the jerk that was elected President of our country? You know, the United States of America .

I do believe that saluting the flag goes with that, as does respecting and honoring the service members who have died.

Does this pompous ass believe he is above that gesture? If not a salute, how about a hand over the heart like the other guy? He can shower us all with flowery words (via teleprompter) and dazzle us with his B.S, but actions speak louder. He has no idea about patriotism or respect.

EVERYONE needs to see this Pic!

My question. I know this has been talked about on FR. I can't find the thread. I believe it was debunked as "Hail to the Chief" was being played. Except the other guy in a suit has his hand on his heart.

Help please. Anyone remember the story on this?

At some point, I did a little research and found that hand clasp pose to be Muslim related. I’d say something form his youth.

Thank you. I hadn’t read that. Do you remember what was going on when the pic was taken?

This says it was taken during Hail to the Chief and not a failure to salute.

That picture was not taken at Ft. Hood.

I believe it was at Arlington on Memorial Day.

It was Ft Hood. I looked at other pics and watched a video and it is from 2009 at Ft Hood.

Later in the day, the president headed to Fort Belvoir, Va., to play golf.

Do you happen to know how truthful that site is? Some are Obama apologists like Snopes.

FWIW, I believe that “Hail to the Chief” is usually played as POTUS enters an event. It would not normally be played while he is standing at the podium. I suppose it’s possible that he reached the podium as they were coming to the end of it. But it doesn’t look that way.

Hail to the Chief is played when the President
enters a room or location; people rise in respect
but do not salute.

You found a much better pic. He's wearing a red tie in both. Thanks.

Now why does the guy in a suit have his hand over his heart and Bammy doesn't. LOL

Has anyone ever heard "Hail to the Chief" played for Obama?

"Hail to the Chief," when it used to be played, was played when the President walked into the room or onto the stage, not when he was already there. And if it were being played and the military folks were saluting, they would be saluting him. They are not. And us civilians would never think of putting our hands over our hearts.

Otherwise the explanation is completely plausible.

*ahem* When I was 5 we had company and I was a VERY bad girl. I sang “Hell!, Hell! The gangs all here!” I was sent to my room.

I know of no reason that a civilian would salute the President or anything else. If the National Anthem is played then yes, cross your heart or in some cases salute. This is saluting the flag, not the song or the person. However military folks would need to salute the office of President just as you would if an officer passed by or you came in to report to one. You don’t salute the person (thank goodness), you salute the office or rank. We always had to salute when an officer was present but we saluted the insignia on his/her collar. Same with the president. Look at the button on his collar and salute the office of President.

Because he's a dumb @$$?

Due to a controversy over mismanagement at Arlington National Cemetery, he was issued a letter of reprimand on June 10, 2010.

There seems to be a DOD Reg covering this.

However it does not cover civilians.

Good catch. I guess it’s a security thing. They wouldn’t want Obama entering through the audience, even if they are all politicians, military, sycophants, and toadies. So they rushed him in through the back.

Right. Only military is covered by this. I was referring to it being proper to cross your heart when the flag is being raised, etc. for civilians. Undoubtedly not taught to a good number of the kids now days. Go to a sports event and when they raise the flag and play the National Anthem they stand there like a toad or laugh and play with their friends. My parents would have slapped me out of the seat if I had acted like that.
