Veteran actor Rob Lowe has been dangling his toes in conservative waters for years. Wednesday he may have dropped in a whole foot.
Waiting for an unfashionably late President Obama to show up for a televised press briefing, Lowe tweeted this:
Waiting to hear POTUS explain the disaster the world has become. Noticed what looks like an extra security barrier below his podium.

Responses were mixed to the one-time extremely liberal Lowe. Liberal fans were perplexed at how Obama could have anything to do with the rest of the world.
“Its not POTUS’ fault, “ladiebnx tweeted.”We cannot control what the rest of the world does. Not to mention congress’ obstruction of everything he does.”
But common sense prevailed among others:

In April, Lowe told New York Times Magazine , “I want the government out of almost everything.” He also compared party loyalty to drugs.
“I find them both highly overrated,” he said. “Each day another state makes it O.K. for my 18-year-old — any 18-year-old — to go and buy pot like he’s buying a Pepsi-Cola, and so let’s face it: In the United States, recreational drug use is sort of acceptable. Belonging to one party is acceptable. But my days of just ticking the party box are long over. I judge the candidates for who they are.”
As for the security barrier?
