WHY DO BABS AND POPPY BUSH HATE AMERICA?

Bob Owens, the blogger who used to be known as Confederate Yankee, is appalled and horrified:
Dishonoring the Corps; Marines in inaugural parade had bolts removed from their rifles

David Codrea has revealed that President Obama has so little regard for the United States Marines risking their lives under his command life that they were forced to dismantle their already empty parade rifles for his second inauguration parade. This is nothing less than a slap in the face of the Corps....
Codrea, writing for Examiner.com, "made a cursory search" (his words) and says that Navy marchers in the 2009 parade did not have their rifles dismantled.

Mr. Yankee is livid:
Obama doesn't trust the very men who put their lives on the line to serve their country. I guess it shouldn't be that much of a shock. Untrustworthy people find it very difficult to believe that other men have honor.
So I guess we can also say the same thing about former President George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush. Here's a Washington Post story from Thanksgiving 1990:
President Bush didn't come to Saudi Arabia with any guns or missiles, but he had a much more effective secret weapon: Barbara Bush.

For homesick American troops celebrating Thanksgiving just 80 miles from the Kuwaiti border, she was everybody's missing Mom whose smile sent spirits soaring....

She and Bush dined first with an Army tactical unit and later with U.S. Marines and British Desert Rats....

M-16 and M-203 rifles were like extra appendages. "I rarely hug guns," Mrs. Bush said, flinching when she found one over the arm of one Marine. "You know their guns are all plastic," she added. Bolts and magazines had been removed and carefully pocketed for the visit....

(Emphasis added.)

So tell me, Yankee: Why do the Bushes hate America? Why did they dishonor our troops in 1990?

Oh, how very, very sad.

In the age of the search engine, which they don't appear to realize exists, people like Confederate Yankee still rely on their 1 kB of RAM (Republican Addled Memory).

Interesting presidential security doesn't trust the military not to take a shot.

Hmm.

It is standard practice in inaugural parades and any time the president is present for rifles to be disarmed. Confederate Yankee is one of the dumbest people alive.

Parade guns, those guns you see spun as batoms on tv, are show guns. Props. They may have a bolt to remove but there is no nor has there been a firing pin with which to actually fire a round.

Fake contrversey over fake guns by a fake marine.

No fear...

The sad reality is the SS has learned from the Egyptian experience. You know, when a bunch of nut jobs killed their President and many others during a parade . Removing the bolts makes it easy to see the guns are safe.

I would not be at all surprised if disarming parade guns has been SOP for decades.

This reminds me of the wingnuts who were scandalized that the photo of Obama skeet shooting was released with a warning not to copy or alter the photo....standard boilerplate copyright protection warning.
