A Texas man who scaled the White House fence made it through the North Portico doors on Friday night before being apprehended, the Secret Service said.
…apparently leads to a scenario where this is proposed.
Security Service officials said they could prevent such intrusions by shutting down Pennsylvania Avenue to pedestrians. The section of the thoroughfare in front of the White House was closed to traffic after the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 but remains open to pedestrians. It is often clogged with tourists and is a favorite site for protests.
Bolding mine. But it’s a good thing that I’m not a cynical blogger, because then I can conclude that the sudden rash of security lapses is completely coincidental. And that, of course, the White House will not restrict further the People’s* access to it. Because if they did, why: that would mean that the Democrats really and truly don’t have a single drop of populist sentiment in their veins at all. …Or at least that Barack Obama doesn’t.
Well, Democrats, Barack Obama: all the same thing, really.
