I do see a big difference.I served under Carter and Reagan. Carter: you only did what you were required, to show respect to Office.
Reagan: you did what you everything you could to made sure to show respect for the Man.
Sorry, but put down your Koolaid and take off your rose colored glasses. :wacko:That video means absolutely nothing!
If you pay attention...when Bush walks out the Marines are standing "at ease."
When Obama walks out they are standing at the "Position of Attention."
Now tell me what Marine you know is going to clap or even speak while at the POA? Thats right...NONE! It had nothing to do with who was walking out to the podium.
Are you/were you ever in the Marine Corps?Sorry, but put down your Koolaid and take off your rose colored glasses. :wacko:
The difference in response of those Marines is very apparent.
Forced??? IMO both men were Presidents of the United States at the time of recording, everyone in the room should have been at Attention for both men. Bush just decided to have a more relaxed setting, as you can tell by the way he was dressed. I have no "issues," just calling it as I see it.I was in the Corps, and you can have your case. Bush didn't force anyone to attention. Osama's handlers did. If you can't see the difference, you got more issues than most.
Deal with it.
