UPDATE 11/30/09: Apparently this picture was not taken on Veteran’s Day, but Memorial Day 2009. Obama was not saluting because “Hail to the Chief” was playing as is appropriate protocol. I apologize for the wrong information and feel I should say so on this post. It irritates me that some big names in blogging run with such information without checking it out first. Many are spot on in their coverage and I link to them often, but some really messed up on this one! I am a single blogger who does it for kicks, but even I should have investigated this one a little further.
(Original Post below)
Can our President be more clueless, indifferent, improper or just plain loathing of our military and traditions? (I’ll let you decide which one!?!?!)
Did he salute and do it quickly so no one could see? Or did he just not think about it? Or perhaps, it is beneath him to do so?
In any case, he looks like a buffoon.
