re: College Republicans security threat, refused entrance to Obama's speech

Are you saying they were profiled by Obama's people?

Oh fo sho, and it's definitely standard procedure by the SS, but what makes this extraordinary is that they were actually denied access. I went to a Bush speech in '07 and there were protestors everywhere beforehand, and they were on hand during the speech. They just weren't as vocal because they didn't want to be down the sights of a scope.

They were probably just going to hold up the signs during the speech which is fairly common in any political speech. To me this is a violation of the 1st amendment and right to protest and assembly.




Says they put the signs away.
