Tempest over Obama's tea cup salute: CIC sparks anger by saluting US Marines with drink in his hand
Daily Mail Online ^ | 23 Sep 14 | David Martosko

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won't win him fans among veterans and servicemen.

The height of disrespect from someone who never spent a day in uniform.

CIC = Commander in Chief (had to abbreviate due to the length of the title).

Note they use the term “Tea” like they are indirectly blaming the Tea Party.....

It looks more like a coffee cup...

Also what about the bad optics of the messiah using a STYROFOAM cup... What is RFKjr gonna say???

I’m just mad that he has precedence over the lowest E-1 in the armed forces.

A Major General once returned my salute left handed.

Who was I to correct him?

"Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. "

It's probably the gayest tea you could imagine like a chai latte. Might as well have been a pink cup.

This pig doesn’t even rate to even stand in the same room with America’s Finest. To state the level of contempt I have for this piece of trash would find me quickly banned from these forums. He can take himself and his wookie wife back to whatever hippie hole he climbed out of.

He is an inspiration to all who serve and who have served. He inspires them to make sure we never again elect such a doofus!

He’s an arrogant narcissist who isn’t qualified to even hold an umbrella for any of our brave and honorable servicemen.

Disgusting!

Looks like Obama’s impersonating a junkie panhandler.

Did anyone put spare change in his cup?

He has "fans" among veterans and servicemen? How many? Maybe 3 or 4 gays, but no more than that. Among the country's military, Odumbo is held in utter Contempt and Distain...and rightly so.

A fellow member of the military.

Saluting is a courtesy and a show of respect between the officer corps and the enlisted. If a General salutes you incorrectly, he is insulting the enlisted and junior officer ranks and deserves to be corrected (presuming his right arm was not broken/severed).

How many Brave souls has he sent to do the ultimate Sacrifice for this Country and does not have the common decency to acknowledge their existence! Pure evidence he thinks he is a Dictator~

The Corporal and Sergeant deserve OUR respect for not spitting on him.
