Obama’s disrespectful latte salute [VIDEO]

If there was ever any doubt how this Commander in Chief really feels in his heart about our men and women in uniform, this should seal the deal. We have warriors engaged in harm’s way, and he does THIS? The latte salute. And he has the nerve to publish it on his Instagram account. Disgraceful.

What a disrespectful POS

Mike Jones

That’s called a SS salute, aka Starbucks Salute…Americans for a Constitutional Government on FB come join us. https://www.facebook.com/groups/154842697919014/

Thats a salute? Holy Crap! What an insult. If I had done that whenI was in the Navy, I would have been sent to captains mast for disrespecting the salute. At the very least, I would have gotten a fine and some restricted time. What a disgrace.

LMW51

He has never taken that salute seriously. It always has the look like he’s doing it just because all the other Presidents did it and he’d get hammered if he didn’t do it too. 2016.

stephi

not all other Presidents. President Reagan started the tradition to salute our military. obama would have been better off to just walk passed the two marines the P.O.S.

LMW51

Agree with with walking past….he never even bothers to meet their eyes; I’ve yet to see him smile at them. He should just fully ignore them; his salutes are just as insulting.

Yukidongo

If I say it again, I can’t even remember how many times I have said it. I hate that pretender to the Presidency. Sad thing is, he is really causing chaos and despair, division, and strife where ever he goes and by his actions…which aren’t pretend!

He, Holder and that ugly wife his are all muslim and are determined to destroy this country. I might add they have almost succeeded. Look how we are all divided and fighting each other,

Steven A
Guest

Meh, it’s hard to get too mad at him for it. I’ve had my salute returned with as much regard or sense of courtesy by commissioned officers in uniform. Is it pretty disrespectful? Sure. But we’re also $17Trillion dollars in debt, fighting wars like chickens with our heads cut off, ruining the health care system in America, and that’s just recent stuff.

The President who does some work to fix that mess can return my salute with one finger, and I’ll still feel pretty respected…and you know which finger.

ForTheCause
Guest

I think what bothers me so much is how he has been able to get to this level of disrespect for the military, somehow I think we as the American people have let ourselves down by putting up with his garbage,he should have been stopped long ago, but too many gullible people live on his handouts, they are willing to see this country go to ruins for foodstamps and empty promises.

Michael Clark

IT IS ABOUT TIME SOMEONE SEES THING THE WAY THEY ARE. YOU ARE 100% CORRECT.

He’s never been in the Military, he has no idea how to properly salute. I was in the Marines and I don’t want to think what would have happened if I saluted a Superior to me with a cup of whatever in my hand. One word IDIOT!

m&m's
Guest
If you were in the Marines, you should know that according to standard military protocol, it is not appropriate for the President of the United States to return salutes from uniformed military personnel because, although the President holds the title of Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. armed forces, he is not himself a member of the military, nor does he wear a uniform. Even Dwight Eisenhower, a former five-star general, did not return military salutes while president. “The gesture is of course quite wrong: Such a salute has always required the wearing of a uniform,” author and historian John Lukacs wrote… Read more »

Oh yeah, I can imagine….relentless recycling. You would think boot camp was a walk Iin the park.

MD
Guest

Yes, but after 6 years as Commander-in-Chief he should know by now. So that makes it worse. If he cared, he would make it his business to learn. Presidents make it a point to learn the customs of foreign dignitaries so as not to offend. Don’t our own troops deserve the same courtesy if not more?

Michael Clark

He’s, as Cynthia said, a P.O.S., therefore you think that crap actually learns something?
I still believe Americans woke up with cataracts on election day and pressed the wrong button, OR the elections were rigged.

He should have passed his cup to his wife, or transferred it to the other hand. No class, respect, or apparent awareness of his surroundings. Does anyone believe that Killary will complete a superior salute?

Here is a demonstration of respect for you: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/50/Reagan_salute_1984.jpg Mr. Obama has COST lives, not saved them.

Jodi

The marines have more respect for the office of the president than this president does. It IS a disgrace.. anyone who has half a brain can see the act of his NOT saluting properly to being a slap in the face to America. This president has done this numerous times.. ie.. putting this feet up on the desk in oval office. And, XBlur… YES, when you are president ALL of your moves are scrutinized… you’re a representative of this country and should act as a respectful one with integrity. Sadly, this president lacks that plus much more.
Keith Brackett
Guest

You meant Obama put his feet on the desk like other presidents had done and yet you only became outraged when Obama did it. You meant Obama didn’t return a proper salute like presidents back to Reagan didn’t always return a proper salute and that presidents before Reagan never saluted at all because it’s against military protocol and yet you only became enraged when Obama did it. Maybe it’s you that is a disrespectful slap in the face of America with your highly selective outrage.

Beth Bloom
Guest
Jodi, you really need to settle down. Did you even realize that as protocol stands, the president shouldn’t salute anyone in the military. He is A CIVILIAN. If you were aware of the protocol, you wouldn’t be critiquing the quality of “his salute”. It IS required for military personnel to salute the president, but NOT for the president. To go even further, saluting should only take place when in uniform. Additionally, if you’re going to criticize President Obama for putting his feet up on the desk, then make sure that you include George Bush and Gerald Ford. Contrary to your… Read more »

I beg to differ on the feet on the desk thing. I saw the pictures a long time ago, so I don’t remember the specifics, but if he was just alone in the oval office, that is fine. Perhaps a little disrepectful of what the Resolute desk represents, but fine. Now if he had people in his office, then yes it is disrespectful to have his feet up. Many people and cultures consider it disrespectful to see the bottoms of ones shoes, whether that is with feet up on the desk, or legs crossed in a way you can see… Read more »
dbcowboy32

It may not be protocol but if your going to salute, then do it correctly. But then again he has no military experience so he doent know how to salute nor does he no the sacrafice it takes to earn the uniform and title. He may not have to but should at least take the time to do it right as a sign of respect or not do it at all

Beth Bloom

Really? Is that the best that you can do??? No disrepect to anyone who has been in the military, but good grief! This man can’t do ANYTHING without being castigated.

Kelly Payne

hbhale he is not a ghetto slime. nor is he an illegal immigrant thanks for confirming your stupidity. He is the president until january 20th 2017. Given the fact he has proposed numerous programs to help our veterans and military personel shows he care a great deal about our military. Programs which republicans have blocked or refused to bring to a vote. You are being an ass.

Keith Brackett
Guest

Actually he’s probably just ignorant since he still has no clue what 8 USC 1401 states regarding natural born citizenship, and I served under every single president since Reagan and while there are still a lot of problems with the programs they have my lot improved the most under Obama’s leadership. Overloading the VA with millions of Iraq/Afghanistan vets at the same time millions of Vietnam vets were entering it was a recipe for disaster they should have fixed in 2003.

Cynthia Rogers

Before anyone decides that people are being too picky and racist against our POS, he knows that every time he gets off Air Force One or Marine One he will be expected to return a salute. There was plenty of time for Pres. Obama to switch the Latte to his non saluting hand. This is how I can determine Obama does not respect these men who are sworn to serve and PROTECT this man no matter what or how they feel about him personally.

Kelly Payne

since you have never met the man how the hell would you know whether he respect the military or not? you are making assumptions

Cynthia Rogers
Guest

first of all, “he respects” not “he respect” and furthermore, I do not need to know someone personally to interpret nonverbal communication. For example, if someone flips me off and I don’t know them I can infer they do not respect me. An inference if based on non-contextual speculation based on what is known. I know that by saluting with a coffee cup in his right hand that he could not be bothered to switch it to his left hand which would be the proper way of saluting. Thus showing his lack of respect.

We are to respect the office of “The President Of The United States Of America”. However, the one elected to the highest office in our land must perform his delegated duties and keep his Oath Of Allegiance to “We The People” whom he was elected to SERVE. He must also “follow to the letter of the law” and legally implement ALL of the laws passed into law by our United States Congress.

As a retired Marine with some ground experience with the salute generally and with regard to non-uniformed honors (salutes to civilians in the chain of command) and purely for the sake of accuracy please note that the President is in no way required to render or return a salute – even though he is the Commander in Chief. President Reagan actually started that tradition because he honestly didn’t know what he should do to return the Marine’s salute. He relates this little anecdote in his memoirs – well worth the read for that alone. Having said that though, I am… Read more »

Don’t assume Salvatore. Nothing thus far in this thread has anything whatever to do with Bozo being black. So thanks for bringing up race in all this. Your own racism being mirrored in your claim.

This thread is about Obama’s disdain and blatant disrespect for his Marines and not a forum for you to spew your racist rhetoric.

Beth Bloom
Guest

Tom, there was nothing done that suggest the President showed any “disdain or blatant disrespect”. If you want to talk about mirroring claims, you may want to start with yours. You’re making an assumption about someone feelings upon which you have no solid basis. President Obama was perfectly within protocol with his actions.

they had the person he was reportedly in the closet with killed and it was found in a ditch in Indonesia…..or so it was someones opinion quoted here.

Jim Dean

Tom, I agree completely. IF he’s going to salute, the act should be done respectfully, not just as a “hey there” gesture. I think it stems from not really having an understanding of true military discipline, honor, and tradition.

Wow, “James”, if that really is your real picture in your avatar then I’m surprised they let you graduate Basic if you don’t even actually know or understand something as simple as salute protocols. The President is a CIVILIAN. Civilians do NOT salute. Period. End of story. President Reagan is the confirmed originator of the TRADITION (not protocol) of saluting by an acting president. Even 5-Star General Dwight D. Eisenhower did not salute during his time in office. The whole entire point of having a civilian oversee the United States military was to ensure that the military is fully overseen… Read more »

Wait…so first you insist that the President absolutely must salute because he’s the Commander in Chief and then, when you are educated as to reality, you come back with a macho, I’m-so-Alpha, King S**t of Turd Mountain retort that basically says you already KNOW that the President doesn’t have to salute. My head is spinning from your awesomeness. Truly. It’s a confirmed historical fact that Reagan started the tradition of Presidential salutes.

Oh dear god… nicely put ‘fellow American’ so try to put aside your thoughts on people that have served their country and know more about military regulations than you, and what is spinning my head is that you honestly think that in the 1980’s, was the first time the idea of returning a salute back to a lower rank that rendered that salute was integrated into our military system, finally I gave you an insight of what I have done, not for glory but to let you know I’ve been there and know what I’m talking about, so stop the… Read more »

You should put as much effort into reading and comprehending written English as you do into digging your hole deeper and deeper in this conversation. I never said or intimated that “the 1980’s, was the first time the idea of returning a salute back to a lower rank that rendered that salute…blah, blah, blah.” What I said was that President Reagan was the first PRESIDENT to begin the tradition of saluting military personnel.

Who knows what may have had him pre-occupied, like, maybe an obstructionist Congress. Oh, wait, they’ve gone on VACATION again, without, you guessed it, doing anything, at all, about anything.

celtnik

Obstructionism isn’t a big deal when Democrats block Republican legislation though, is it? Really want to play this game. If you really understood the history of separation of powers you would realize that obstructionism is an American accomplishment, hence the term separation of powers. Obstructing this guy is the duty of anyone who loves their country. That and the fact that the Republicans haven’t really obstructed him at all. I realize reality is a tough concept for leftists to come to grips with, but there it is.

Trillions of dollars have been spent on the “Great Society” and all we have to show for it is more poor people. That and the fact that National Defense is one of the things that the Federal Government is supposed to spend money on. What we have spent on these wars is a rounding error compared to what we owe in unfunded liabilities in Medicare, Medicaid and SS, which are nothing but government run Ponzi Schemes. The only reason you had a Surplus during the Clinton Admins is because Republicans controlled Congress and balanced the budget, something the Democrats never… Read more »

I will get back to these. But your last point, seriously? Deficits between *’06* and ’10??? Have you checked your math? Who was in office in ’06? And what might have been the dynamic causing an increase in the deficit? It doesn’t happen with the flip of a switch!

The dynamic was Democrats controlling spending.

celtnik

Who controlled Congress then genius? Where do all spending bills originate? Who was in Office in ’09 to January of ’11 when most of the spending skyrocketed?

What “skyrocket”? Links, friend. “Who controlled Congress then genius?”, when are you talking about? And I haven’t insulted you personally, don’t resort to insulting me.

celtnik

What do you mean, what am I talking about. It’s pretty simple, who controlled Congress for four years from ’07 to ’11 and who was President for the last two years of that? The current debt is over 17 trillion dollars, 5 trillion of that occured during the first 735 days of the Obama Administration. And it’s not just at the federal level either.

What does “real conservatism” mean?? Edumakate me. Cuz, conservatism to me means, taking care of your family, looking out for your friends, being careful with your surroundings – because, and forgive my anger here, YOU FU**ING DEPEND ON THEM.

That means NOT destroying the environment, NOT caving in to corporate interests that only care about their profit… You want to be conservative? Then CONSERVE. Push for more solar, more wind energy. CONSERVE forests. CONSERVE nature resources: parks, lakes rivers. Where the hell do you want your kids and grandkids to live??

What does “conserve” mean to you, Mr. CheetoBuster?

CheetoBuster
Guest
Conservatives believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies empower individuals to solve problems, not the government. If wind or solar energy conserve how much we spend to use them, then absolutely but right now that’s not the case. So much money is wasted on green energy that in the end saves nothing. I don’t know any conservative that doesn’t want clean parks, lakes and rivers…so ya of course. Do… Read more »

“One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq

the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction

and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”

–President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

————————————————————————–

“If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our

purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat

posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”

–President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

Ok, I’ll admit, I’m not sure I understand your point. But, Clinton didn’t thrust into an unfunded and ill-planned war for 13+ years.

Did he?

Well, granted, Clinton didn’t have to budget the military for a possible USSR showdown, but he *still* only cut the military budget by about 20%. Hardly what I’d call “down to the bone.”

I went and looked at the picture in question Bush was rendering a proper salute, right hand extended, as with protocol. He is holding the dog in his left hand, hardly the same as this. What Obama just did, and what he continues to do is disrespect the military. He knew nothing of the military before office, but the least he can do, as the commander in chief is try to learn proper military protocol. He doesn’t, because he doesn’t care.

Yes, there are plenty of issues but to know he despises our military is actually a huge issue in how he uses our military.

Tom Davis

If I recall, and correct me if your leftist administration has revised history (again) but he didn’t salute with the dog. And he received personal corrective instruction from his Chief of Staff as well as the Secretary of the Navy for it. Something I expect Obama wouldn’t deign to allow mush less actually take heed of.
