    Well, they generally get their choice of assignments after White House duty, so that would be a step up.

    From the Halls of Montezuma to Obama servant

    No one is arguing whether the commander-in-chief of the mighty United States military can order a highly-trained Marine Corps corporal to stand next to him holding an umbrella so the Chicagoan's balding head doesn't get moist.

    But they are questioning whether Barack Obama should issue such a command to a member of the military who volunteered to protect the nation, not the Democrat's personal pate.

    Such an action (scroll to the bottom for a C-SPAN video excerpt of the president answering a media question on the IRS scandal and then his hand-motion to get "a coupla Marines over here") adds to Obama's image as an imperious fellow not really connected to the revered military on a personal level.

    As if to reinforce this impression, on Friday as he boarded a presidential helicopter, a perhaps preoccupied Obama failed to return the salute of his Marine guard. >>>

    The way the allegedly well-spoken pol talks of "my Marine Band," implying some kind of tacky personal ownership of the White House musical group that plays at many formal functions for any president.

    Now comes a suggestion that by ordering the Marines over, Obama actually had them violate specific Marine Corps regulations. They do permit female Marines to carry an umbrella in inclement weather, but only in the left hand, to permit proper salutes with the right.

    Male Marines are expressly prohibited from carrying any umbrella at all, left or right hand, at anytime. >>>

    But of the 1,900 people who work in the bloated Obama White House, (including 40 aides still $333,000 behind in their IRS taxes), are we to believe there aren't two tall civilians capable of and willing to hold an umbrella over the boss and the prime minister of Turkey? Seriously?

    And leave the nation's professional soldiers to the dignity of being soldiers, not uniformed man-servants at a Rose Garden photo op.
