While doing my day-to-day researching I came across this YouTube video that made me think...why on earth would someone throw a book at President Obama?? While rallying yesterday in Philadelphia, PA, someone from the crowd threw a book at our President. Not sure of the name of the book just yet or the assailant, but I can do nothing but marvel at the irony between throwing a "book" at the very person (administration) who has vowed to transform our education system. However, on a more serious note, this is very dangerous for our President. Although President Obama does not notice, at no time should something like this be allowed to occur and maybe they should look into increasing his security.
See the video below....
According to the Huffington Post, the person who threw the mystery book at President Obama has been identified as 24 yr old Juan Rodriguez. According to a Secret Service Spokesman, the young man was hoping that the President would read the book that he had written himself.
Ummmm Juan, next time you may want to try a less dangerous approach than launching something at the President....although you have received quite a bit of press because of this incident. Hmmm, is this a new book marketing method?? We hope not!!
