    I simply cannot recall George confiscating cutlery... and you know the MSM would be ALL OVER it if he had.

    I wonder if they conficated forks at the $40,000 per plate Hollywood `fundraiser` too? NAW! They were all white folks.

    Easily one of the dumbest links ever posted on this site, and that`s including the daily bot posts from Eugenius and Hole_Rocks.

    I wonder if this was a decision made by the secret service. I also wonder if Obama even knew about it.

    This is why Breitbart is not a valid source of news. The article the link to never says Obama ordered it, but they assert in their story that it was his decision.

    The Secret Service usually acts on their own in these matters. If they were concerned about a security threat, they dealt with it in a matter they saw fit.

    Ah, @FoolsPrussia out to rescue Saint Obama!

    Didn`t YOU accuse Bush of claiming "Mission Accomplished" before? Regardless, it was COMMON practice for 8 years to Blame Bush (tm) for ANYTHING even vaguely related to the Presidency.

    Funny how:
    a)that changes suddenly in Jan 2009
    b)ALL the IAB liberals have utterly forgotten

    YEah: Breitbart is not a valid source of "news" because it tells the TRUTH! lolz!
    See: liberals think "news = leftist dogma" while truth = vast right-wing conspiracy...

    Seriously?? "Knives were banned outright"? Ok, I`m guessing the meal didn`t NEED the use of a knife, so no knife was given. "The secret service confiscated all forks before the president entered". I really DOUBT the SECRET SERVICE took the forks. Likely the event staff or caterers took the forks. Turning nothing into something.

    I doubt I ever criticized Bush here for the Mission Accomplished fiasco, since that`s pretty old news, but he deserved it. That`s a decision made by his administration.

    The Secret Service is NOT a part of the administration. They are a separate, apolitical part of the federal government. Mitt Romney will have his own Secret Service detail on the campaign trail. Do you think Obama can order Romney`s Secret Service agents to spill ice cream on him during a campaign stop at a Foster`s Freeze?

    You guys would have much more credibility if you sticked to attacking Obama for the things he deserves criticism for. For the record, I have stated many times here that I haven`t decided to vote for him in November. In fact, I didn`t vote for him in this year`s primary.

    @phirephoto: YES! Seriously!

    @FP: You think Breitbart is the ONLY source for these stories? That they `make them up`? Seriously man, edumicate yourself: ANY bad news about Obama is COVERED UP by the MSM.
    "Fast and Furious" ring a bell?

    *sigh*
    The "Mission Accomplished" fiasco:

    Bush flew as a passenger in a Navy Fighter jet that landed on an aircraft carrier that was returning from the Gulf War.
    He was the 1st US Prez to do so.
    He gave a speech congradulating the troops, and declaired that the "First part, the ground combat phase, of the war is over" and proceeded to talk about phase 2: winning hearts and minds.
    IN THE BACKGROUND was a banner reading "Mission Accomplished" which was for the crew of the ship, now about 100 miles from home.

    The MSM WENT BERZERK calling Bush an idiot for saying the war was "over". This went on for WEEKS! In fact he never said any such thing, and the banner was NOT part of his visit.

    Didn`t stop the MSM from flooding the `news` with the story of course...

    Compare and contrast to Obama being hauled OFF THE GOLF COURSE to decide what to do with Bin Laden. The mission was delayed (iirc) almost 2 hours so he could "make the decision" and of course pose for the photo op...

    Funny, the "official MSM story" always fails to mention golf...

    @5cats: Still, I REALLY doubt the Secret Service took the forks. It probably was one person who said it, then it spread like wildfire. And knives were absent "for a reason".... Like maybe their food didn`t require the use of knives?

    The Secret Service misunderstood the threat.
    That guy didn`t shout "fork Obama"

    The second link (below) suggests that the event organizers were told by the SS to collect ALL the forks BEFORE Obama would be allowed on stage.

    Remember: After that prostitute "problem" in Columbia, the Secret Service is very careful about forking protocols...

    @5cats...Canada is great and all, but I`m sure there are a few things in your own neck of the woods that could your attention. Your hatred of our prez and democratic party...is a little odd.

    5Cats: Military insiders claim Obama didn`t `make the decision`, it was made for him by Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton. That is why Obama was not prepared, out golfing, was sitting on a folding chair away from the table and has an angry look on his face, in the now famous photo.

    In time, when the details are declassified, that fact will be more than an anonymous leak.

    The fact remains that Seal Team 6 trained for a year for the mission, which means Obama knew for over a year where Bin Laden was and didn`t act on that fact.

    vv hee hee, well that would REALLY tick him off @CrakrJak! I hope it`s true.
    Those Seals train 24-7! idk how long they "knew" where he was or suspected and then got sudden confirmation. Anybody know?
