LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --Does a fork or dinner knife pose an unacceptable danger to President Barack Obama?
One wouldnt think so, given the hundreds of lunches and dinners hes 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.
Its very important that you use your utensils as soon as possible, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials board member Raquel Regalado told about 1000 delegates at the groups annual conference.
Regalado hurried the diners to finish up their salads and pre-cut chicken breasts, saying that the Secret Service required that there be no knives at the tables and that the forks be rounded up before Obama entered the room.
As you know, were having another speaker and there is some Secret Service involved. So theres a reason why theres no knives at your table and the forks will be collected ..And Im not joking, Regalado told the audience in a ballroom at Disneys Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. So, like the good Hispanic mother Im here to tell you to please, eat your lunch.
A Secret Service spokesman confirmed that the agency made the request, but said such requirements are common at large events where the president speaks at about the same time people are dining....

OBAMA DOESN’T TRUST LATINOS!!! RACISM!!!! RACISM!!!!!
One commenter at the link says....
“Stick a fork in him, he’s done!”.
WOW, JUST WOW, if bush did this we wouldn;t hear an end to it,....
Without apologies, or even explanation
Don't these idiots know they are being treated as "tolerated" inferiors?
” - - - such requirements are common at large events where the president speaks at about the same time people are dining - - - “
Is this SS code for “with Obama in Office, we will all be eating from hand to mouth?”
It may be true but the dialog sounds like satire.
Racist! Mexico isn’t real happy with Obamy for Fast and Furious. He might just tick all the ‘hispanics’ off before he’s done.
Cue “Paranoid” by Black Sabbath!
Did this ever happen during the Bush Years, either one? or even the Clintoon Years? I dare say, “NOT!”
WTFIGO? Is this the New Dictator? the new Stalin? the new Chairman Mao?, no, the dirt ball couldn’t shine their shoes, but he can expect to be the new Hugo Chavez, the Mentor of his “DREAMS” Fictional bullshit book, Mr. William Ayers, self confessed Pentagon Bomber and Terrorist Extrodinaire! When are Americans going to rise up and throw this fraud out on his skinny gay ass???
I've been hoping to live long enough to say the equivalent about 0bama's dear friend, Bernardine Dohrn.
The Spork Prez
He associates with murderous scum. The left tend to project their worst drives and behaviors on others.
Fork you, Obama
"...my guess is he had a premonition about forks, just like the coconuts....by the time he gets up to the G's..H's..I's...and J K's....he'll be fun to watch"
He wants their vote but doesn’t trust them enough to have dinner with them. You said it...Priceless!
20 years ago, I attended a Pavarotti concert ... in DC. There was a slightly higher than I expected security presence, but they weren't searching people or doing anything I thought was onerous. I had a knife in my pocket (as always), a fact of which officialdom was completely unaware and unconcerned. I cannot have been the only person so equipped.
Turns out GHW Bush and the Prime Minister of Japan were both in attendance.
0bama's paranoid arrogance is astonishing.
