Guess you don't mind his half ass effort in the White House either! If you do not have the integrity and the knowledge to honor our service men properly then don't bother!!
How can you make excuses for this chump? No wonder we have generation of lazy youths that think the world revolves around them! Should he not be some kind of role model? He has managed to be the poster child for " How NOT to act Presidential"!

Please, you are taking this as if its some sort of horrible impeachable offense, it's not even really a faux pas.
Listen do you stop and say hello to everyone at work? Do you shake each and every person's hand you come across?
I'm betting no you don't.
This isn't as big of a deal as you all are making it out to be, hell, the world is on the edge of world war three, and you are worried about the president not saluting properly?
This is got to be the most lame attempt at a scandal that I have ever heard. It's a waste of time and if you are that upset about it maybe you really need to reassess your political views, because you are way too easily offended.

At least Bush had a proper salute with a dog in his arms.
He was in the military and should know proper salute etiquette.
I suppose I just find it a small thing to get too worked up about.

For the people that continue to make excuses for Obama, I would like to ask you this. Are any of you here that are saying "no big deal" "non issue" or "soldier is a temp" and implying not important, willing to lay down your life for your brother or friend?? No, I didn't think so....but these men ARE!! They have been sent into extremely harsh conditions a literal sand box for most and regardless of how or why they were sent, the ASS Hat that sent them there needs to show a little respect as to say "Hey I'm thinking about you or I appreciate your willingness to go fight for all of us" NOT act like he can't be bothered and slap them in the face!! You people obviously do not esteem character and honor as important qualities to have.
This is a narcissistic power hungry want to be if there has ever been one!! As for him thinking about to many things at once, that is laughable!! What could he possibly be thinking about? He has not accomplished one damn thing not one that is not a debacle!! Oh yeah I forgot, the only thing he has accomplished is he is the first black President!! And to that I say So What!!!! Maybe his tee time and that's it!!
God he is so out of touch!! And no this is is not an isolated incident it is the straw that broke the camels back!! If everyday citizens realize how uplifting it is to service men and women when we take the time to say thank you for your sacrifice how can the Commander in Chief NOT!!! He treated them like he was there Master!! Disgusting classless clueless bag of hot air!
