    Yes it is his personal security detail, and will be even after he leaves office, if he wants it. The fact that it is a publicly funded perk is in no tension with the fact that the perk is enjoyed by the person Obama for his personal use and benefit anywhere in the world, whether he is working or playing.

Obama may be fine with the IRS choosing to harass those that he cares little about, with embassy personnel being sacrificed to keep up some bizarre image of trusting the "good Muslim" nations and doling out endless pork to his favorite supporters. We the people, not the king, must have a say in how our border is being secured and how the federal laws that our representatives have passed are being enforced.
    All off-topic, and a waste of time, good-bye.

    The biggest jokes are the right wing clowns who are running around trying to criticize the Obama-era SS that succeeded based on actual results (O is still alive and well),

    while defending their hero dumbya whom history has proven screwed up based on the actual results of his silly invasion (al Qaeda, Zarqawi, ISIS, ...).

    Yes, they do something similar in North Korea.

    The SS succeeded at that, and therefore, it did not fail.
    you do realize that procedure is just as important as result right? There is a reason the director resigned. Nice try, but you don't know the real world. Procedure matters not just results.

    She was chief of staff at the time of the 2012 prostitution scandal, which might well have been a disqualifying factor for me if I had been doing the hiring. Got any more dirt on her?

    Surely the thing that caught her attention, perhaps even making her quake in fear, is noticing the her resignation is the first thing that the Dems and Reps of Congress have agreed upon in a year. Surely, hell freezing over is a remarkable and humbling event.

    I agree.

    I expect that the secret service is probably subject to dangerously restrictive rules of engagement, though.

    The procedures apparently kept all presidents safe for 30 years. In other words, it worked, which is all that matters.

    No freedom-loving individual would ever desire more security for the regime than the bare minimum necessary.

    Now, they do, I imagine.

    So if I abuse my government credit card by buying hookers but I pay it off ahead of time everything is good right? Sorry, WRONG, I would be fired. the procedure is I don't use my government credit card for that.

    Plain and simple, NO ONE is supposed to make it into the White House like that NO ONE. Now YOU may look at ONLY the results, well reality is other people don't.

    The procedures DO matter.
