    Knives and Forks Confiscated at Obama Dinner...

    Yup, it's true... Obama security confiscated the silverware before his highness would appear to address a room of Hispanic elected officials:

    Okay, let me get this straight... We pump guns into Mexico illegally for the criminal population to use, but confiscate the flatware of a group of elected Hispanic officials... Is that about right? :dunno:

    That goes back way before Obama. Certain Kings would not allow pointed knives for fear of assassination.

    Were sporks issued instead?

    Or did they hand out that corn starch based crap that falls apart cutting pancakes?

    Evidently, the food served was pre-cut, and guests were told to hurry up and eat, as the forks would be confiscated before the emperor arrived...

    Huh... I don't recall hearing that flatware was confiscated at that Hollywood dinner, where his highness openly criticized those bitter Pennsylvania hicks, for clinging to their guns and religion (while conversely defending Islam at every opportunity)...

    I don't recall hearing that flatware was confiscated at the dinner George Clooney hosted recently, where Obama was the guest of honor...

    Oh, well... Best not to dwell on it... It's just Obama being Obama... Nothing to see here... Move along...

    Yep, I'm sure it was Obama himself that gave the order to collect the flatware. Sometimes people give him WAY too much credit!

    He's obviously profiling Hispanics and knives.

    My wife and I often assist in the formal dinners of a former VPOTUS. If you think that they have any say as to how the occasion is conducted you are fooling yourself. HH

    Good points all around, but this still seems odd, and to be honest, I've never heard of such a precaution taken by another POTUS at a similar event... :dunno:

    Like I said, it wasn't mentioned at any previous, high profile dinners or luncheons that Obama's attended... Why now? :dunno:

    BHO is becoming mighty paranoid, isn't he?

    Before I'd let any USSS agent take away my fork and knife I'd ask him: So, how's your whore in Cartagena doing? Been in any bathroom bar brawls with your fellow agents recently? Oh, I'm sorry. That was those OTHER agents that were fighting each other while on detail at Martha's Vineyards with the other Twit.

    It's almost asscomical.

    I remember back when Pat Buccanon was running against Bush 41 for the Rep Nomination, in 1990. He being a gun-nut, attended The Great Western Gun Show in Cali. The Secret Service took the stick that a sign was stapled to from a supporter and left the supporter with.....the Winchester Rifle a supported was holding.

    Breaking news -

    Mitt Romney announces support for flatware.

    Spokesman for the Romney campain said Mitt has been pro silverware since being born with a silver spoon in his mouth - but has just recently decided to expand his support to include all flatware and chopsticks.

    What a slap in the face. I guess he's not concerned about how he insults anyone. POTUS seems to be handled by twenty year old, poorly educated interns.

    Do they allow attendees to spit seeds from the watermelon at the CBC dinners?
