President Obama’s Questionable Salute to Marines
Have you seen how the Commander in Chief salutes the Marines? The internet is all a buzz with President Obama's casual salute as he stepped off Marine One on Tuesday.
Presidents are not required to return salutes to members of the military, but it seems to be a respectful and decent practice.
According to ABC News, Ronald Reagen is thought to have set the precedent back in 1981.
It may not be required, but it sure says a lot about a president when he gives the members of our military the respect they deserve, and have earned.
In this case when he doesn't. It seems the President would want to set a good example for the rest of the nation.
Obama critics are harshly criticizing the Obama salute, while his supporters seem to be shrugging it off. What do you think? Take a look.
