I don't expect our friends on the left to understand this, but there is a world of difference between the two examples.

1. The GWB photo shows a man giving a proper salute, albeit contorted while trying to control a dog (saluting while holding something in your left hand is perfectly fine). When I was active duty, there were multiple times I was working with my hands full and made every effort to return a salute, even though I couldn't drop what was in my hands.

2. The Obama photo shows a man who can't be bothered to shift his mocha soy latte to his empty hand before saluting.

Stuff like this is great because it shows how ignorant the left is to all things related to the armed forces.

First, he doesn't have to salute. Second, your post is BS.

He's the CIC. Military personnel must salute him. Furthermore, the personnel saluting him must hold their salute until he returns it. I suppose it's really up to him whether he's going to return it, but if he's going to do it, he needs to make the effort to do it correctly.

You don't understand and your question has nothing to do with my post. Please stick with what you're good at: ambiguously ghey rants about women.

What wars did President Obama start? How many US troops are in Iraq and Afghanistan today versus when he took office? There are some things you could have gone with here, but didn't.

Oh, and I'd wager the answer is Arafat!

Yes it does. And your anger is showing through so well in this thread. I've already won. He doesn't have to salute. He doesn't have to salute.

Of course you are correct. It's a non-issue anyway, which is why it's being discussed here. People like USN froth at the mouth to criticize him for anything. And now he's probably going to call you a "retard" as he slams his fist on his desk.

You are embarrassing yourself. You are so angry that you can't think straight. He doesn't have to salute. And GWB is clutching the dog with his right arm as well. Keep in mind the dog is not a work item, it's a leisure item just like BO's tea. Neither one of them made a proper salute, but check this out, neither one of them had to salute.

It is great because it shows how willing you are to condemn a perceived misdeed of an opponent, while you explain it away for someone you support.

You see, #1 could have said:
The Bush photo shows a man who can't be bothered to put his dog down to empty his hands before saluting.

I don't know about that. Between initializing action in Libya and Syria, the escalation of action in Afghanistan, and drone strikes in Pakistan I'm pretty sure Obama has eclipsed the former PLO leader.

This has been the problem from the right. Focusing on non-issues like this instead of going after legit things and staying on them.

Obama has been a failure and I don't think he has the interests of our country at heart. He's as corrupt an administration in my lifetime and has circumvented law and the Constitution during his tenure. He has done nothing but been a partisan and takes no responsibility for his actions and places blame on others for everything.

But I don't give a rip about his "latte salute" or lack thereof.

Yeah, funny how he says Obama should have shifted his coffee to his other hand and conveniently ignores the fact that W could have easily shifted the dog to his other arm. Or is he trying to argue W was too weak to hold a 15 pound Scottish Terrier in one arm? LOL. Like I said... some people just froth at the mouth and will get upset over literally anything. It's kind of sad really.

1. The GWB photo shows a man giving a proper salute, albeit contorted while trying to control a dog (saluting while holding something in your left hand is perfectly fine). When I was active duty, there were multiple times I was working with my hands full and made every effort to return a salute, even though I couldn't drop what was in my hands.

2. The Obama photo shows a man who can't be bothered to shift his mocha soy latte to his empty hand before saluting.

Stuff like this is great because it shows how ignorant the left is to all things related to the armed forces.


First, he doesn't have to salute. Second, your post is BS.


You don't know WTF you're talking about. Please stop before you embarrass yourself more than CW on a blind date.


Does he have to salute?


You don't understand and your question has nothing to do with my post. Please stick with what you're good at: ambiguously ghey rants about women.


Yes it does. And your anger is showing through so well in this thread. I've already won. He doesn't have to salute. He doesn't have to salute.


You dumb arse - I (nor anyone, that I'm aware of) said he broke the law. This is a classic deflection and you're either a useful idiot, or a conspirator - pick one.

Does he have to salute?


He's the CIC. Military personnel must salute him. Furthermore, the personnel saluting him must hold their salute until he returns it. I suppose it's really up to him whether he's going to return it, but if he's going to do it, he needs to make the effort to do it correctly.


Bottom line. He doesn't have to do it.


Not denying that. Like I said, if they're going to return the salute, they (read both Bush AND Obama) should make the effort to do it correctly.
