Just...wow....I knew they had protocols in place to protect him but this is beyond even what I could have imagined...

Obama sported bulletproof suit for inaugural proceedings?


Apparently, the Photosynth glitching and iPhone-like GPS blip on CNN weren't the only high tech actions in play at President Obama's inauguration yesterday. According to one of our favorite daily reads, Officer.com, the Prez was wearing "bullet-resistant clothing," which experts (and sci-fi fanatics) are taking to mean a bullet-proof suit. The folks over at Slatespeculate that he might have been adorned in an outfit manufactured by MIguel Caballero, a Colombian company that specializes in bullet-resistant gear like leather jackets, windbreakers, and yes... ruffled tuxedo shirts. We'd like to imagine that stuffed into the pocket of that handsome outfit he was sporting was a Kevlar handkerchief -- but listen up Obama: Sasha and Malia are not going to be down with that bulletproof backpack.

Um... are they threatening the children? I didn't even know it was like that. Figured he had a vest on, but a suit? This is definitely 2009.

I don't think they are threatening the children, I just think that with the advances in technology the girls could have "bulletproof backpacks" if necessary. I think it was a joke.
