Secret Service asks guests to fork over their flatware

Lately it seems the Obama campaign has been living hand to mouth due to its spending woes. But who would have guessed that Latino elected officials would have to eat lunch with their hands earlier today?

Today’s silverware grab is at odds with other presidential appearances where the dreaded fork was allowed to remain.

Some Romney supporters seized on the news as an opening to attract Hispanic voters.

Fittingly, Obama’s Autopen completed the birth of the latest anti-Obama Twitter hashtag.

    It is truly staggering that he can show such disrespect to elected officials, then presume to deprive celebrations of presents, and these “tools” – “useful idiots” would be an insult to idiots — continue to slobber over him — they really have no dignity, no self respect and certainly no sense at all!

    Was he afraid his Fast & Furious program had killed some of their relatives in Mexico? What exactly did he think he had to fear?

    This was an event with about 1000 delegates…
    Who is the D-umbass that made the directive to snatch people’s forks?

    ¿Es eso un tenedor en el bolsillo o estás feliz de verme? (Is that a fork in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?)

    Did Obama remove all the eating utensils from George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parkers house?
    Incredibly insulting!

    Is Obama paranoid? You should have walked out. If this was a test, you failed!

    Obama Spokesperson at the Dinner: “We simply needed the forks to apply to our tongues… to further our message for this campaign. There was nothing racist about it. Let me be clear – we are NOT RACIST. We FORK EVERYONE. We are EQUAL OPPORTUNITY FORKERS!!!”
