Did you even read your own links?
For the record, I don't like the law, but to pretend/imply its either a.) new or b.) Obama's doing is just plain dishonest.
You didn't read it.
They added a clause the says you can't protest anywhere there is secret service present. The president always has secret service. That is a huge difference.
You might not care now but wait until another Bush takes office.
Ron Paul has it right.
Ever heard of the First Amendment? Perhaps you should read it.
