President Obama Canít Be in the Same Room As Forks Anymore?
http://nymag.com ^ | June 22 2012 | Dan Amira

Posted on 06/22/2012 4:17:52 PM PDT by Para-Ord.45

Just a few days after announcing that his administration would no longer deport about 800,000 young illegal immigrants, you would think that President Obama would be received as something of a hero by NALEO, the National Association of Latino Elected Officials, before whom Obama is giving a speech this afternoon in Orlando. But the Secret Service wasn't taking any chances. As hundreds of Latino elected officials were enjoying their lunch at Disney's Contemporary Resort earlier today, it was announced that forks would be collected before Obama took the stage. It was also mentioned that knives, too, were entirely absent from the lunch for "a reason."

"There's a reason why there are no knives at your table & the forks WILL be collected..I'm not joking" says NALEO host re: Secret Service

Kelly O'Donnell (@KellyO) June 22, 2012

Why was it determined that Obama and forks can no longer coexist peacefully? Did the Secret Service pick up some intelligence on an unspecified fork threat to the president? We have contacted them for answers, and we will report back to you as soon as possible.

Must be afraid of the “white hispanics” in the room.

Well it was a Latino crowd and we have the movie line: “We don’t need no steenking forks. We have machetes!”

Obama has been “forking” all of us for 3 and a half years. Now, he wants to make sure that he has an exclusive franchise on “forking.” You know, those Hispanics may want to “fork” him and he can’t stand the shoe being on the other foot!

He who speaks with forked tongue did not want to get forked by the invited guest.

Probably a good move on the secret services part. If they used those forks as a weapon and actually did something they would probably scream for more amnesty.

Probably OK since people are losing their appetites for being force fed BS. Obama, however, probably needs all the utensils he can get for the crow he’s going to be eating over F&F.

Someone in his security team must be hard of hearing. They misunderstood people in the crowd that greeted the limo outside the kitchen entrance when they yelled what sounded like “fork you” at the Resident.

Those Latinos SHOULD be insulted. But they, like many Blacks and other minorities, have become comfortable living on the Democrat's plantation of Government (Taxpayer) largess.

What he won't say is that only members of the NBPP can have real forks.

He was probably afraid somebody would stick a fork in him, because he knows “he’s done.”

I am sure you wouldn’t want to as it is all stringy and when you hit the occasional pocket of fat the THC from his “choomin’ “ would literally blow your mind.

Michelle on the other hand would be more succulents, but she already gets eaten every night by Valerie Jarrett.....

Did the silverware meet the standards of King Louis XIV?

Round tips, dull blades, rounded fork tips.

Then what's the problem? Is Obama better than THE SUN KING?

I bet it was the dreaded Fork Weasle that has
them all in a tizzy.

I seen a fella get stabbed with a fork once in a
mess hall, he was just a little quick reaching for
someones fried chicken.

Maybe the FBI intercepted a garbled communication
about telling Obama to get forked.
