    Secret Service code names for Romney and Santorum revealed: Javelin and Petrus

    Secret Service code names for Romney and Santorum revealed: Javelin and Petrus | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

    President Obama's Secret Service code name, chosen during his 2008 presidential campaign, is "Renegade." Michelle Obama's code name is "Renaissance," while Malia and Sacha go by "Radiance" and "Rosebud," respectively.Obama's opponent in the 2008 election, Sen. John McCain, was "Phoenix," a nod to his home state. McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, was "Denali."
    While GOP rivals Romney, Santorum and Gingrich enjoy Secret Service protection, Ron Paul told Jay Leno on Tuesday that he wouldn't take the security offer.


    "It's a form of welfare, having the taxpayers take care of somebody and I'm an ordinary citizen," Paul said. "I should pay for my own protection."

    Paul is always good for a laugh. Thank god for libertarians, they make the rest of our little quirks look sane.

    "Javelin," the magazine notes, could refer to a vintage muscle car manufactured by American Motors Corporation, where Romney's father, George, was once chairman.
    Guess he didn't want to be "Gremlin."

    I'm so glad that Ron Paul will never reach the presidency. America vitally needs him to operate where is now, as a comedian

    I guess flipper was too obvious a code name for Romney.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Ken would have been another good choice.
