Obama shuns Marine

I see this as a shun on Obama's part and extremely rude.Check out this video at about 2:11 how Obama disregards a Marine reaching out for a hand shake..Obama does not even look at him yet the football players it's all smiles and chatter.

  • IMO, it was rude and no he shouldn't treat them like that. Since he has never served in the military and is against everything that makes our national security strong, I doubt he understands the honor he is supposed to pay to those who have given more than he would ever imagine giving for his country. But that's just my opinion.

  • He's a rude, non-experienced, fool of a man who has never served his country and obviously doesn't respect those who have given up soooo much to serve thier. We all should be happy when these next few years of him and his cooky administration is over and hope and pray we have some resemblance our our beloved country left.

    I hope that was the answer you were looking for.

  • I think he is full of himself and either too busy playing rock star/celebrity that he did not even realize how rude that was or he realizes and doesn't care.

  • I think it shows MORE of his arrogance. His objective was lock on loaded on "pop star" mode. It wasn't about being President and showing respect to all.
