POTUS and FLOTUS at the Marine Corps Evening Parade

POTUS and FLOTUS at the Marine Corps Evening Parade, where POTUS was the guest of honor.

POTUS, FLOTUS and a Marine got into the limo outside the White House residence at 7:45 p.m. Motorcade arrived at Marine barracks in southeast DC at 7:53 p.m.

POTUS addressed a small group of Marines and family after arriving. Pool was not permitted to be present for his remarks, which our handlers said have same press procedures as Embassy staff visits, which are traditionally closed press. Pool could vaguely hear a well-miked POTUS from the 5-by-30 foot patch of grass where we were set, but was unable to make out anything he said.

Then there was the presentation of the colors. POTUS did not salute as the color guard took its place, as Conway and Smith did.

I listened to his comment about being uncomfortable with the word “victory” and it PISSED ME OFF. I did hear the entire comment and the context it was in, but even in the stupid context he made it in, I never, EVER thought we would have a Commander in Chief that was so STUPID as to word it the way he did.

Not with troops on the battlefield.

I not only think that he is tring to destroy our country, but realize there is no evil genius behind it all.

He is just an idiot.

Not sure he is ‘authorized’ or it is proper for him to salute in that situation.
The protocol says hand over heart and recent amendments to the Flag Code authorize covered Vets to salute during National Anthem and Presentation of the colors.

He was attending a Military function and I would probably have more of a ‘problem’ with him saluting rather than not....

There is no official title of “First Lady of the United States” and I wish politico would stop using FLOTUS like it really meant something.

The Friday night dress parade at Marine Corps Barracks is THE best show in town .. anyone coming to DC over the Summer season should be sure to make reservations. Just can’t watch it and not be covered with goosebumps.

The captions for those pictures pretty much write themselves, don’t they? “WTF am I doing here?” comes to mind for all three photos.

Exactly. They should bow to him, how dare they expect him to salute his lowly subjects.

I thought for civilians, it was stand, with your hand over the heart when the colors are presented. I’m not sure, though. The Obozo’s protocol chief should make sure he doesn’t look so much like a ninny out in public.

My young Marine brethren don't appear to be the least bit impressed by the Usurper.

Obama is unfit to even be in the presence of such fine young men.

If he wants to bow to someone, then bow to these.

The idiot really thought that putting on a USMC tee shirt and shooting hoops with “the guys” made him one of them. He really has no clue.

I've come to the same conclusion. Zero couldn't keep saying some of the things he says with a straight face, such as not knowing “Austrian” or saying the Emperor and McArthur signed the peace treaty.
I'd give good money to see his college grades.

I emailed “W” b4 he left office and now I am receiving emails from Barry's staff regularly—and Michele is listed on the official WH site as part of the EXECUTIVE branch of the administration— Wonder how much salary she is drawing— remember Barry's seal that said Office of the President elect— which he made up— no such animal as michele is not part of the executive branch of the govt....

That is so true. I've been a couple of times. Hands down THE best show anywhere.
