Yesterday we reported on Umbrella-gate, in which Republicans have created another drama instead of focusing on the economy, environment, sequestration, our troops, Syria and lest we forget, the all important birth certificate. Ah, but that was soo last year.
Sarah Palin piled it in an attempt to ridicule the President (and because she’s not in the White House) over using an umbrella. And worse, a Marine held the umbrella for him. What next Obummer?
Here’s the half-term Governor of Alaska’s tweet:
Scandalous Hat TrickMr. President, when it rains it pours, but most Americans hold their own umbrellas. Today in… fb.me/zAZryzjj

A picture of scandalous Sarah Palin being un-American (gasp!):
Shit Sarah says on her Facebook wall, “Some of us warned America; we cautioned voters in 2008 that a community organizer with no executive experience and no sense of accountability would be a very poor choice for the nation’s top management position.”
Palin ends her rant with, “Speaking of coverage, glad you finally called in the Marines… shame it was just to hold your umbrella.”
Except Obama has honored our troops, many, many times.
Speaking of ‘hat tricks’ Republicans are trying vigorously to deflect from this, According to a new government estimate, the budget deficit for the current year will come in well below what was projected just a few months ago, in fact, $200 billion below its February estimate, which makes this the smallest annual shortfall since 2008.
The Associated Press reports, “The Congressional Budget Office study predicts a 2013 budget deficit of $642 billion.”
Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi said, “It’s excellent budget news.” Zandi said the shrinking deficit “highlights the upside from the fiscal austerity.
As for “most Americans holding their own umbrellas’, this guy looks familiar.
Woof! From FreakOutNation’s Editor-in-Chief. Yes, he’s a dog. Duh!:

When Obama was first sworn in, Fox News got a scoop. It was devastating to his presidency. Obama used mustard on his hamburger, so for an entire week or more the network ran with that story, with Laura Ingraham saying, “What kind of a man puts mustard on his hamburger?!”
What kind of a party ignores the economy while focusing on an umbrella, birth certificate, mustard, etc. etc, etc?

* Title 10 of the U.S. Code, states that members of the Marine Corps shall “perform such other duties as the President may direct.”
* The same umbrella rules hold true for the Army, Navy and Air Force, all service members.
* Capt. Eric Flanagan, a Marines spokesman. A request [ umbrella ] from the president to a Marine who serves at the White House, however, would be an “extenuating circumstance”
