    Secret Service Takes Forks Away From Latinos At Obama Event

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --Does a fork or dinner knife pose an unacceptable danger to President Barack Obama?

    One wouldn’t think so, given the hundreds of lunches and dinners he’s attended ranging from state dinners to political fundraisers to run-of-the-mill stops on the rubber-chicken circuit.

    However, at one such lunch Friday afternoon, guests heard an unusual announcement that they needed to hand over their silverware for security reasons.

    Secret Service Takes Forks Away From Latinos At Obama Event - Obama Event - Fox Nation


    Wow! How insulting....These people were not some mob off the street. Not the much demonized by liberal/Progressives TEA Party. No, these were Demo, delegates there to hear Obama speak, and have lunch. Apparently, the Secret Service feels that the greatest threat doesn't come from the political opposition to Obama, but from within....And they feel that a bad re-enactment of West Side Story is how it would go down....

    So now tell us again libs, how Obama is the hispanic choice?

    I read about this yesterday and was astonished.

    Of course, I was also astonished when I read that Obama's campaign is encouraging wedding gifts and etc. be directed to the campaign rather than to the happy couple or new graduate.

    So are you bashing the Secret Service, or bashing Obama?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Perhaps the point is that this is NOT normal security for ALL presidential campaign events, but that the hispanic crowd was treated just a tad differently. ;-)

    Neither, I am actually pointing out how absolutely out of touch with constituents Obama is.
