The president remarked on the rain and brought it all back around to him and Michelle, as usual.

It's raining in Atlanta — I hope President Obama brought plenty of Marines.

In Atlanta, it's raining on Obama as he gives a commencement speech. Will he order the Marines with umbrellas to stand down?
