Obama Visits Marine Corps Base in Hawaii

This was yesterday:

The diners represented seven military units — Marine and Navy — some of whom were joined by their families for Christmas dinner.

As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up.

A deliberate snub or merely a proper distinction in the treatment due a president and a president-elect?

H/t Gateway Pundit.

  1. I bet it was all a matter of protocol and had he been the President and not the President-elect, the reception would have been entirely different. Soldiers do their duty, after all.
