    Yes, he was successful in government. It's too bad many of his successes were scorned by the party he ran with.
    Isn't it though? But the party he ran with has to pretend to be conservative, and some of his political achievements/positions were not so conservative.

    The gait for the umbrella gate would be the brokedick crawl.

    As the author of this fine comic says,

    The reactions were interesting because people let their political butthurtedness flow into their opinions on the matter. People seem to forget that we’re Marines, and this is exactly the kind of **** that Marines do. Somehow, holding an umbrella for the President and the Turkish Prime Minister is seen as demeaning, while all of the other bull**** that Marines do every day is not. I find it entertaining to see Marines on my Facebook page saying things like, “I would have told him to **** off and hold his own umbrella.”

    No you wouldn’t.

    Shut up.

    We’re Marines, if the President of the ****ing United States asks you to hold a ****ing umbrella, you hold a ****ing umbrella. As well, the day I give a **** about a boot Corporal holding an umbrella is the day I’ve forgotten what the Marine Corps is. Honestly, holding an umbrella for the President is probably the least demeaning thing I could imagine doing as a Marine, as opposed to the other bull**** I had to do every day. No one would think twice about asking a boot to police call cigarette butts across the entire base at 5am, but the minute this boot has to hold an umbrella for the Commander in Chief, people get upset.
    He’s the President, he rates an umbrella.
