At Least Neville Chamberlain Could Carry His Own Umbrella


Mr. Obama started off his second term without noticing that Jon Favreau, his misogynistic departing lead speechwriter left him uttering "Peace in our time" on his way out the White House door writing for lesser celebrities in Hollywood. Today Obama channels Neville Chamberlain once again, only this time, he uses American Marines as props to hold umbrellas for himself and Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan at a joint press conference. Or as Twitchy quips, "Out: I support the troops. In: The troops support my umbrella."

But as the scandals continue to hit the 'Bam, it looks like he's going to need a bigger umbrella. And who knows -- perhaps not even the Marines can save him.
