    Report: Secret Service strained to protect Obama

    Report: Secret Service strained to protect Obama - Yahoo! News

    October 21, 2009

    An internal congressional report questioning the ability of the Secret Service to continue fulfilling its duties was leaked to the Boston Globe. The report says the Secret Service is strained by a drastic increase in threats to President Obama, coupled with deep budget cuts. Some are speculating that the agency may need to relinquish all or part of its roles in protecting the country's financial machinery in order to focus resources on the protection of the president and other high-profile leaders.
    Ummmm, budget cuts? To the Secret Service? Seriously!?

    What about entitlement programs, or foreign aid, or park services, or arts, or anything that doesn't involve protecting the life of the President?

    No wonder Washington is so screwed up...

    "Some are speculating that the agency may need to relinquish all or part of its roles in protecting the country's financial machinery in order to focus resources on the protection of the president and other high-profile leaders"???

    No, it's the other way around. The Secret service belongs to the Treasury.

    Entitlement programs do involve protection of the life of the president. Without cheap appeasement of radical working class sentiments, there would likely be violent resistance against capitalism and perhaps republicanism, as there was in the days before reformist and halfway measures were implemented to protect laborers instead of liberate them.

    People complain that we are spending too much, then when some spending is cut, people complain about where spending is cut.

    Re: Report: Secret Service strained to protect Obama

    An internal congressional report questioning the ability of the Secret Service to continue fulfilling its duties was leaked to the Boston Globe.
    This story is planted to gain sympathy and further the false claims of racism and other lies coming from the White House and Liberals in the Congress who are in fear of there jobs because the truth is slowly filtering out despite the best efforts of the mainstream Obamedia and other blind supporters.
    Nothing said by The Southern Poverty Law Center is believable since they are a hate group who make outlandish claims on a regular bases.
    Threats against Obama have from the start been highly exaggerated.

    Barack Obama does not believe that recent criticism of his administration's policies by conservatives is based on racism, the White House has said.
    "We understand that people have disagreements with some of the decisions that we've made and some of the extraordinary actions that had to be undertaken by this administration" amid the US financial crisis and economic recession, Obama added.
    Obama says in public it's to racism fueling opposition but behind the scenes he's the one behind the charges. It's classic Saul Alenskey tactics.

    Any evidence to back up your claims or are you just ranting?

    Now, what is the repeating motive in both of these statements?
