23. Idiots who read "literally" are the problem, here.

An umbrella is not a "uniform item" for the USMC. The whiners are inferring that Obama has caused the Marines to violate their uniform regulations.

However, these Marines are not "wearing" the umbrellas as uniform items--they are using them to cover the heads of the principals for whom they are responsible.

This isn't a new thing--I've seen Marines do this in other settings. It's a protocol courtesy to a DV.

Anyone who wants to see a GOP President's travesty when it comes to White House uniform matters should check out Nixon's personal "Palace Guard" design for his WH uniformed Secret Service. Hideous!!!!



Does this not look like something out of Prussia in Clausewitz's era?
