Obama’s Serial Breaches Of Protocol

I’m not overly concerned about President Obama’s halfhearted “Semper Latte” salute for a number of reasons–partly because we have more pressing concerns to deal with, but mostly because President Obama obviously can’t be bothered to concern himself with niceties like protocol, or showing respect for the Office that he occupies, let alone demonstrating respect for the Armed Forces he leads as Commander in Chief.
Constant use of troops as photo op backdrops.
Sends back Churchill bust.
Constantly fucks with Netanyahu.
Bows or half-bows…

…to Japanese robot.

On and on and on.
So why act surprised?
