Obama Uses Marines As Personal Valets

During a White House press conference today President Obama called in the Marines…to hold an umbrella over his head and protect him from the rain.

Like Allahpundit, I’m sure previous presidential administrations have done this sort of thing whether it be holding up an umbrella or carrying some bags or something.

But can we just call a halt to that sort of thing altogether? These are Marines, not the President’s personal valets.
