    I did read shortly after his death was that he dispensed with SS protection a few years before his death.
    There was no mention of hiring private security, though.

    Hillary had a high-powered lawyer job, so they could certainly have afforded a house,
    so this is sure to be more teabagger bull****.


    I don't think this is much of a problem. Really I don't.

    Actually Nixon got rid of his Secret Service detail ten years before his death.

    Nixon was a practicing attorney unlike Clinton and Obama, so he made his bucks early on during his career. He made more money during WW ll playing poker in the South Pacific. Lt. Cmdr. Nixon was considered one of the best poker players in the Pacific theater during WW ll. By the time Nixon entered politics right after WW ll he was pretty well off.

    Also Nixon was an author of many best selling books after his Presidency.

    So no slush funds were needed.

    Nixon was a very generous person. Ask any one who actually knew him.

    Ask any Marine who was White Beach when Nixon would come walking up to them wearing his wingtip shoes while walking along Camp Pendleton beaches. White Beach was his favorite.

    Remember the story of Nixon at night at the Lincoln Memorial talking to the hippies ?

    I have a lady friend who's father was Nixon's chauffeur after he resigned. When Nixon decided to move from San Clemente to a place where he said "Where nobody likes anyone" that being New York City Nixon gave his Cadillac limo to his chauffeur in appreciation for his services.

    Obama compared to Nixon makes Watergate look like an infraction compared to J-walking.

So the cost of a few extra hotel rooms? Meanwhile each family member serves a type of ambassador helping to build a positive American image to people who uniquely identify with them. I ave absolutely no probes with the president bringing his family on official trips overseas, in fact I support it.
    G.W. Bush's ranch like LBJ's Ranch, Reagan's ranch and Nixon's Summer White House in San Clemente were all set up with communication systems and command and control facilities able to conduct the functions of running the country or conducting war.

    It was a family vacation. Disneyland's Adventureland wasn't good enough for Malia and Natasha. Spoiled brats.
    So you're saying you're an anti-capitalist and hate freedom. Got it.

    I'm providing rational context as to the costs of the President doing anything. You, and your partisan hackery peanut gallery have no problem ignoring things like this.

    Obama was wealthy before he became president. Why do you hate rich people?

    Partisan Hack ?

    I'm on no ones payroll. Haven't received one cent from the RNC since the mid 1980's. I have no power within the Republican Party. I don't even consider my self in good standing with the RNC, but the RNC seems to differ.

    Rational context?

    17 trillion in debt and counting

    Obama is spending our money like he's Mayweather in a strip club. Stop pretending like Obama gives 2 *&^%$ if American taxpayer money is wasted.

    He had his dog airlifted to his 7.6M posh vacation getaway. Oh but Bush blah blah yea we know and we don't care

    I'm not sure if any POTUS has vacationed as extravagantly as he though.

    I get that he's your guy and you feel obligated to defend him but some of his expenditures are pretty indefensible. No one is saying he shouldn't take a vacation but does he have to build a mile long, bomb proof tunnel when he ventures out into bad neighborhoods? Can't he just, ya know, find something else to do in a safer neighborhood?
