There have been two attempted break-ins into his home over the past few days.
That would make anybody nervous, but if you happen to be the first Negro president of these divided states of America, it's enough to make you think twice before you go anywhere near John Q Public.
I know that the President has Secret Service protections, but let's face it; I am not sure that their hearts are really into it. (I bet there are a lot of FOX viewers in their ranks.)
Anyway, the boys in the dark suits are being criticized once again for slipping on the job. And you have to wonder if this time their critics aren't on to something.
"Never before has an intruder on the grounds managed to enter the White House itself," said Ronald Kessler, author of a recent book that is very critical of the Secret Service. "The incident on Friday evening is the most shocking example yet of how dangerously lax the Secret Service has become, failing at its most basic job - to protect the president and first family in the White House."
Pretty much every Negro in America is thinking the same thing: This wouldn't be happening if the family occupying 1600 Pennsylvania, Avenue looked more like the Nelsons and less like the Huxtables.
I can't blame Negroes for their angst and concerns. The hatred for this particular president runs deep.
"A Secret Service official told CBS News that the agency would look into all of the factors that prompted agents on the scene to decide against using force to prevent the man from entering the residence.
"They showed restraint," the official said. "But we're not happy with where he was arrested. That cannot happen."
I am sure the Obamas aren't happy, either. That man was in their house for crying out loud!
I know that they will be gone in a couple of years, but for now, it is still their house. And they, like every other American, should feel safe while they are there.
