Discussion:
The Marine With The Umbrella

For those Americans who actually pay attention to something other than
Kim Kardashian and the NBA, did you happen to catch an image of 0bama at
his televised press conference yesterday? When it started raining on
0bama (and you gotta love that!) a U.S. Marine was conscripted to hold an
umbrella over Dear Ruler while 0bama dodged media questions. This
umbrella-holding, by the way, was in direct violation of P1020.34F of the
Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3.

I’ve been here for a few laps around the sun now, and I don’t ever
remember seeing something like this before. There are uniformed Secret
Service personnel at the White House who could have performed this
function --- but Marines? I do remember Hillary using Marines to walk
around with treys of canapés the White House while her “husband” was
running the show however.

There was some disturbing symbolism here. 0bama clearly will not do what
he, as president, should do to protect men and women serving America
overseas, but the Marines can damned sure protect him from the rain.

The knee-jerk anti-Obama foolishness has gotten so absurd that it's
hard to keep up anymore. Seriously, was this even the effort required to
type it? (The same question can be asked about what I just typed.)

This idiot who likes to post uniform regs ought to read them. Holding
an umbrella, or a meatloaf for that matter, over the POTUS is a
perfectly legal order.

Apparently this issue is all over the right-wing blogosphere as
nutjobs jizz all over themselves with statements that the president
caused a Marine to violate uniform regulations. They are unable to
distinguish, it seems, that the Marine in question was "operating" the
umbrella, not carrying it or making it a part of his uniform. He,
apparently, HAS read the regs and understands what a legal order is.
Also that the POTUS outranks the Commandant, who works for him.

Oh, a tray of canapes is not made part of the uniform when carried
either.

I twice voted for and support President Obama but I thought that
having a Marine hold an umbrella was a bad idea. The event should have
been held indoors.

It seems extremely unlikely that the President of the United States
had anything to do with the decision. President Obama walked into a
photo op for GOP hacks to whine about and did what he had to do.

Where were all the right-wing losers when US Marines and the rest of
our armed forces were spilling their blood in W's pointless adventures
in Afghanistan and Iraq? Not a peep about that but they're outraged
that a US Marine held an umbrella for his Commander-in-Chief.

It is no surprise that The Irrelevant One is unable to make such a
simple decision. After all, he had not been given the script with all
the information, because he was . . . that day.

True. I was trying to be sensitive to the separation of powers
argument I was sure was coming as a follow-up, the enumerated power of
Congress to make laws for the governance of the armed forces, etc. But
in my experience uniform regs come from the service secretaries,
although they delegate, as here, to others. In this case the
Commandant of the MC. Congress would get involved if appropriated
funds were needed to re-clothe the services, but the issue of design
and wearing is not something they get into.

Interesting for me, I learned that female Marines may, optionally,
carry a foldable umbrella so long as they have their saluting hand
free. Males may not.

The Navy never uses umbrellas, either gender in my experience. I think
the Air Force does. Not sure about the Army.

Army Regulation 670-1 (Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and
Equipment), paragraph 27-27, reads: Females may carry and use an
umbrella, only during inclement weather, when wearing the service
(class A and B), dress, and mess uniforms. Umbrellas are not
authorized in formations or when wearing field or utility uniforms.

Of course generals can do whatever the hell they want to. I bet these
guys screaming about Obama's umbrella had no problem at all with
Patton's pearl-handled revolvers.

It's amazing the nonsense the Republicans will make into issues. This is
such a nonsensical event it buggers the mind to see the Republicans
struggling to make it a impeachable event. Someone posted a pictures of
presidents under umbrellas on Facebook. Guess what? The Bushes and Reagan
had umbrellas held over their heads, too.

Not only that, but the Reagan pic shows him walking from a plane with
someone holding an umbrella - not at a news conference with a foreign
dignitary.

It does bugger the mind. And it makes me laugh to see just how low
they'll go in an attempt to score points....and they're too stupid to
realize it only makes them look stupid.

You're an idiot. "Buggers the mind" would loosely translate to "fucks

idiot." Any questions, buddy?

I don't remember the context of Obama's remark, if indeed he said
it at all. Notice, however, that Warren didn't deny that the
factory-builder built the factory. Indeed, she congratulated him for it.

Army Regulation 670-1 (Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and
Equipment), paragraph 27-27, reads: Females may carry and use an
umbrella, only during inclement weather, when wearing the service
(class A and B), dress, and mess uniforms. Umbrellas are not
authorized in formations or when wearing field or utility uniforms.
Of course generals can do whatever the hell they want to. I bet these
guys screaming about Obama's umbrella had no problem at all with
Patton's pearl-handled revolvers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
It's amazing the nonsense the Republicans will make into issues. This
is such a nonsensical event it buggers the mind to see the Republicans
struggling to make it a impeachable event. Someone posted a pictures of
presidents under umbrellas on Facebook. Guess what? The Bushes and
Reagan had umbrellas held over their heads, too.
Not only that, but the Reagan pic shows him walking from a plane with
someone holding an umbrella - not at a news conference with a foreign
dignitary.
It does bugger the mind. And it makes me laugh to see just how low
they'll go in an attempt to score points....and they're too stupid to
realize it only makes them look stupid.
Obamahumpers eagerly promote this kind of silliness in a desperate
attempt to divert attention from his crimes of corruption.

It won't work. Barky Hussein is toast.

Apparently this issue is all over the right-wing blogosphere as nutjobs
jizz all over themselves with statements that the president caused a
Marine to violate uniform regulations. They are unable to distinguish,
it seems, that the Marine in question was "operating" the umbrella, not
carrying it or making it a part of his uniform.
Well, not to mention, Obama is the Commander in Chief. A Marine uniform
is whatever he says it is.
True. I was trying to be sensitive to the separation of powers argument
I was sure was coming as a follow-up, the enumerated power of Congress
to make laws for the governance of the armed forces, etc. But in my
experience uniform regs come from the service secretaries, although they
delegate, as here, to others. In this case the Commandant of the MC.
Congress would get involved if appropriated funds were needed to
re-clothe the services, but the issue of design and wearing is not
something they get into.
Interesting for me, I learned that female Marines may, optionally, carry
a foldable umbrella so long as they have their saluting hand free. Males
may not.
The Navy never uses umbrellas, either gender in my experience. I think
the Air Force does. Not sure about the Army.

For those Americans who actually pay attention to something other than
Kim Kardashian and the NBA, did you happen to catch an image of 0bama at
his televised press conference yesterday? When it started raining on
0bama (and you gotta love that!) a U.S. Marine was conscripted to hold an
umbrella over Dear Ruler while 0bama dodged media questions. This
umbrella-holding, by the way, was in direct violation of P1020.34F of the
Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3.
I've been here for a few laps around the sun now, and I don't ever
remember seeing something like this before. There are uniformed Secret
Service personnel at the White House who could have performed this
function --- but Marines? I do remember Hillary using Marines to walk
around with treys of canapés the White House while her "husband‰ was
running the show however.
There was some disturbing symbolism here. 0bama clearly will not do what
he, as president, should do to protect men and women serving America
overseas, but the Marines can damned sure protect him from the rain.
The knee-jerk anti-Obama foolishness has gotten so absurd that it's
hard to keep up anymore. Seriously, was this even the effort required to
type it? (The same question can be asked about what I just typed.)

Yes it is. But it does demonstrate a lack of respect for military customs,
