Congressman suggests moat around White House

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/congressman-suggests-moat-around-white-house-2014-11-19

The suggestion was made by Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, at a House Judiciary Committee hearing.

With hand gestures, Cohen suggested a moat roughly six-feet wide may be “attractive” and “effective.”

Joseph Clancy, the acting director of the Secret Service, didn’t dismiss the suggestion out of hand.

“Sir, it may be,” he said. Clancy said the Secret Service and the National Park Service were discussing ways to ensure security along with access to the White House for the American people.

Clancy said the agencies were discussing possibilities such as higher fence that they want to still be appealing to the eye. He said the agencies hoped to be able to reveal some artist renderings of what they are going to propose soon.

A king needs a castle. A castle has to have a moat.

As our "glorious leaders" surround themselves with more and more layers of "security", this is all I think of:

The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

Yes, digging a moat around "the people's house" is silly and childish.

No, whats childish is that you would take something that an idiot said and attribute it to Obama as if it were his words and his wishes...desperation.

Remember to install a drawbridge for those occasions when Jonathan Gruber pays a visit.

But Illegals will automatically feel the sudden urge to swim cross it. It'd be an "attractive nuisance".

He's acting like a King, just like Bush was before him.

Why not have a moat around the castle?

"The White Castle"? Sounds like a good idea...

White Castle is already one of the heavily fortified places on the face of the earth.

Might as well have a moat.
