Secret Service Grabs Silverware Before Obama Speaks
If this had happened during he Bush administration I can imagine the media outrage. It seems that Obama and the Secret Service are racing to lower limits of deportment, ethical conduct, and simple competency. In the past the Secret Service didn't hook up with hookers or get into bar room fist fights and managed to at least project an aura of horse sense. When Obama addressed National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials the Secret Service confiscated the knives and forks before Obama entered the room. It's understandable that a group of largely Democratic politicians would have more than its share of felons but one would think that at some point common sense and simple politeness would prevail. Then again Secret Service answers to Janet Napalitono so the Hispanic politicians should count themselves lucky that they didn't have a full body pat down. The fact that this didn't happen the day before when Romney addressed the same group suggests the Secret Service doesn't care if someone sticks a salad fork in Romney.
