Marine Corps band would not have done this if Obama were …

well, you know. (Surely someone will go there.)

Via The Hill:

A subset of the Marine Corps band struck up one of Mitt Romney’s walkout songs while President Obama was greeting visitors at the White House Independence Day celebration.

A White House pool report said the band struck up Rodney Atkins’s “It’s America,” and described it as an “awkward moment.”

    Anyone know if there is a song called “You’re Outta Here Come November” or something similar? If there is, we should send the sheet music for it to the Marine band, ASAP.

    Anyway, good work Marines!

    I’m sure the Obamessiah was thinking “what else can you expect from the Marine Corpse?”

Ew. I’ll bet that earned them one of those “stink-eye” stares Shellie Obama does so well…

The kind that would pop the paint off a battleship.

Again, I have to say that I admire Marines on two big counts: (1) they know the right thing to do and (2) they’re brave enough to do it. How do I send a few cases of beer to their barracks?

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to radiofreeca. | July 5, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    You can’t send ’em beer, but you can do this. The next time you’re flying and there’s a Gyrene on board, tell the flight attendant, “I’ll buy him whatever he wants.” Or, the next time you see a Marine anywhere, thank him or her and shake their hand.

    And if a group of Gyrenes are in uniform and there’s a swabbie in their midst, that’s probably ‘doc,’ their corpsman. Nobody is more respected and beloved in Marine combat units. Nobody. Even though he is rated differently and wears different class-As, he wears the same utilities and plies his trade right alongside his brother Marines. For all intents and purposes, he is a Marine in the ways that count.

    If you’re kind to one, you’re kind to all.

      Hi, there’s a website listing marines’ addresses available and other military that need letters and stuff. I’ve been sending boxes for 8 years (over 500 boxes) now with thank you notes along with hygiene, food stuff and whatever they need. I treasure the notes I get back from them, our volunteer military! Hooah!

      OORAH!! They may be pogues but they’re still jarheads.

I saw a T-Shirt that on the back had the Marine Corps Emblem and the words
Making easy shit hard since 1775.

Tried to order a custom shirt made through a Marine Corps certified vendor and was told that they could not do the shirt as the Corps will not allow it’s logo to be used with any profanity.

My drill instructor and I would never have had a conversation.

Makes me want to get out my Gitfiddle!

At least they didn’t play Bananarama. That would have been disturbing.

Frankly, the song is as symbolic of the good majority of the nation than any other…besides the multitude of other country songs about the nation.

I believe there was a saying, I believe by Reagan, that Republicans view everyday as July 4th, while Democrats view it as April 15th. I think it should be changed to “Americans” for Republicans and “Assholes/Communists/Dumbasses” for Democrats. I have Democrat friends who we only have two connections with. The fact we love Japanese Anime and Video Games, and we’re all proud to be living in America where we’re allowed to yell at each other in discussions of politics, then get a burger and watch an episode or two of a show and be best buds again. All without a secret religious police writing our descriptions down to give us a knife to the back as we walk to our cars after class.

The people who try to bring down America are idiots.

    I think it is moving or has moved to ‘agree to disagree” & part company.

    Walking through carparks always requires awareness no matter where you are. You are as likely to be knifed for your car /wallet . Knifed is knifed & it probably does not matter what for especially if you are dead.

    Imo Japanese animations & manga are simply misogynist .

Here’s some color from POTUS’ visits with the troops.

After his remarks, POTUS and FLOTUS made a bee-lime for the crowd where he began to shake hands and sign autographs

“The best patriotic outfit pool spotted was a woman standing in line to get an autograph who eventually gave up and walked away empty-handed. The woman was wearing a tank-top dress completely made out of small red, white, and blue balloons — no joke.”

Apparently, the woman wasn’t displaying enough sideballoon to garner attention from POTUS, so she made a bee-lime outta there.

…and the press pool IS admitting that the President is using taxpayer funded White House Independence Day celebration as an Obama campaign event?

Here’s some other color the press pool failed to notice:
President Clinton had particular preference for female whistle-blowers where President Obama does not.

Everything the anointed one does is “awkward.”

It’s a wonder that he didn’t implode for a dose of real patriotic activity.

Only his eviction in November will the chances of our continuing liberty be assured…

Obama should apologize, he’s got a knack for it.

The article Doesn’t Ask, Doesn’t Tell if President Obama paid Royalties to the artist.

Awkward for who, exactly? Obama’s the one who’s out there on a patriotic holiday using his favorite backdrop people for another taxpayer subsidized campaign photo op. I’m pretty sure the gyrenes in the band weren’t the ones feeling awkward … that term would be more aptly applied to our self-obsessed, psychopathic president.

My step-father was in Haiti Aaround 1930 with The Marines. I have a photo he took of the president of Haiti boarding a DC-3 on an official mission to DC. Dad sais that as he took the photo, the Marine band struck up with Bye Bye Blackbird. After this, the president departed withiut musical accompanyment

TrooperJohnSmith | July 5, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Know how easily butt-hurt 0bama can be, it would have not surprised me if he hadn’t immediately deployed the offending musicians to Afghanistan.

That’s a great song except for the lyric about “it’s a Springsteen song”. Uh, no, it ain’t. Google Born in The USA and read the lyrics and look at the album cover.

He’s pissing on the flag, boys. Yeah, he really is.

I can’t wait until Odumbo, Moochelle, and Grandma start packing in January. I can only wonder what lame duck tricks ‘The Anointed One” has up his sleeve.

Well there is some excellent news for the US Marines. Your excellent & very good looking allies in the Pacific have come to the Marines aid.

No longer will you need to stay in hostile territory (Okinawa) or fall into the ocean (Guam ) we have invited you to set up base in Darwin. Darwin shares with Hawaii as the only Australian city bombed by the Japanese (Feb 42 ).& has more than historic or symbolic value.

It is THE launching pad for all of SE Asia . China won’t be going north but south . Furthermore the surrounding terrain -millions of acres – contains all the geophysical qualities needed for desert plains & swamps, tropical rivers multi changing coastlines crocodiles snakes jungles . Not to mention the coastline amphibian training opportunities with hardly a soul for a thousand kilometres.

There are just 2 prblems. The US is demanding ecofuels & a US Commander recently stated that local women ought wear more clothes. Perhaps he would be hapier 150 mles further up north where Muslims rule.

It is very frustrating dealing with the USA 2012.

Sorry – The near naked ladies comment was a practical joke played iagainst some Marines n 2010 & revived for the recent Marine rotation. Darwin is the most un PC city in the world.
