The UK Daily Mail has the story. Reuters also picked it up.
This is the astonishing moment a book was apparently hurled at the head of U.S. President Barack Obama during a campaign rally in Philadelphia.
It is not clear where the book came from in the crowd – or what type of book it was – But it is expected that there will be fallout from the security breach as the Secret Service investigates how close the President came to danger.
Link to the video…..
‘Scuse me….. Did someone say a person committed an assault on The President Of The United States ?
What ?…… There’s photos and video too ?…… From multiple angles ?
You’re damn straight somebody in either The Inner or The Outer has some ‘splainin’ to do.
After securing the incident, if the detail’s scene commander didn’t immediately and directly offer his/her resignation and formal apology to The President, I would be more than surprised.
Whoever committed the assault on The President Of The United States is quite lucky they’re not chunks of goo on the ground where they stood, book still in hand while in the motion of throwing……. which is what should happen when anyone attempts assault on any President Of The United States.
Maybe it’s just me and a wee bit of honor, but YOU DO NOT PHYSICALLY ATTACK THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and live to tell about it.
Back to your regular programming.

I carry a firearm because a police officer is too heavy.
