When I heard about this I thought for sure it had to be a joke. But no its real.
Today President Obama spoke at lunchtime at the meeting of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials - the thing is the Secret Service did not allow any knives and prior to the President speaking even the forks were confiscated. Are you kidding me? Do you think the cutlery was confiscated when Obama had a dinner at George Clooney's house or at Sarah Jessica Parker's home? If this was an NAACP meeting would the sharp objects have been whisked away by the Secret Service?
To top it off the gist of the President's speech was that they couldn't trust Mitt Romney. The President who can't even trust his audience with forks is saying people can't trust Romney.
