Why was there no physical barrier between George W. Bush and the man who threw a shoe at him?

Because sometimes there's a point where it's no longer reasonable to keep adding security precaution after security precaution, and a potential assassination is just the risk you take.
True, but there is a major technological difference between both president'S eras: In our time, you could put a cumbersome glass/plastic wall between speaker and audience - but in the late 24th century all you need are portable forcefield generators to place an invisible/soundless forcefield.
