Obama in the Grips of a New Scandal: US Marines May Be Verging on Mutiny

Original post made by William on May 16, 2013

As if the multiple scandals that threaten Obama with impeachment, if not a lengthy prison terms have not been enough, we have yet another scandal at the White House: The commander in chief of the American armed forces today forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldn't get wet.

According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform. There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carry an umbrella.

You might think a commander in chief of the armed forces might be aware of the regulation. Nevertheless, during a press conference under a light drizzle with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan this morning, President Obama flaunted his transcendence of the US Military when he allowed the First Head to be protected from the elements by an umbrella held by a male Marine corporal.

Nothing is beyond this so-called commander in chief when it comes to embarrassing armed forces in the act of protecting himself from hostile elements, such as a light rainfall. It has been reported that the White House immediately when into defensive mode, and conflicting spin-stories are emanating from both the White House and the CIA as I write this missive.

WOW William, you have way to much free time on your hands. I think there are much bigger problems in the world than a marine holding an umbrella. Face it, your party lost the election and you are grasping at straws to get the President out of office. NOT GUNNA HAPPEN.

Not sure how many names you post under, William, but your political satire amuses me a great deal and I look forward to each installment. You should write for Stephen Colbert on the Colbert Report!
