Obama’s Philadelphia rally: Flying books and a naked protester

We have come a long way from the days of people falling into rapture over Obama. 
UK Daily Mail: 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.
The flying missile narrowly missed hitting the President today.
It is not clear what the book was, where it came from in the crowd, or why it was thrown at Mr Obama - who did not appear to notice the danger.[…]
The rally was clearly an eventful one - other images showed a naked man being led away in handcuffs by police. 

It is not clear if the man was involved in the book-throwing incident - or why he was not wearing any clothes. 
The bizarre incident recalled the moment in 2008 when an angry Iraqi journalist hurled a shoe at then-U.S. President George Bush during a press conference in Baghdad. 
Obama could use some of George Bush’s bobbing and weaving skills.  In the video below, Obama doesn’t even notice the book (see the 4:38 mark). Compare and contrast with Dubya who was acting like a master Dodgeball champ.

Be sure to check out the UK Daily Mail story, there is a picture of a sister  reacting to the naked man that is absolutely priceless!

Can't look or listen. But I never could or did. Your governor is off the charts, LtCl Allen West is also. Carly Forino and Meg Whitman are pulling in some numbers.
I am still, however, devoted to the idea of voting the majority in and out on a regular basis. I know that's boring and I still stick with it and believe in that premise.

Clifton, I don't even know where to to go with Obama. He's awful.I couldn't stand Nixon or Carter, either and I frankly wasn't a big fan of John Kennedy. The only President I've really liked was RR and it's bin a long time since he was President. But, I'm even more tired of Congress and still howling that we should vote them all in and out a a regular basis.

Proof that he is oblivious to what's really going on around him. He isn't even competent or coherent enough to see a book being hurled at him how does anyone expect him to see anything else.

I'm always amazed at how Bush handled the shoe throwing incident. He was actually smiling as he deftly ducked out of the way.

I'm also amazed at how slow the Secret Service responded.
