    Yeah, I see no real problem with allowing a SS agent assigned to guard every former pres… that’s a handful of SS agents pulled away from “regular duty” at any given time. I see no conspiracy behind that as some perhaps do.

    But there is MAJOR hypocrisy in “guns for me, but not for thee,” absolutely. Mattie Drudge is pretty pro at picking out those inconvenient truths.

    In ancient Rome, emperors were protected by the Praetorian guard. The guard was essentially armed thugs funded by loot the emperor extracted by force from wealthy citizens. If your sterotype of a Roman soldier has a breastplate and a red brush on his helmet, these were those guys. Inside the city of Rome, weapons, even poisons, were prohibited.

    The most despised emperors would attend The Games shielded by a screen, so citizens would not know what he looked like. I guess they had to look at coins.

    Perhaps, but when I was growing up I was very used to knowing that not only were our current presidents protected by SS agents, but one always guarded even our former presidents.

    I was okay with that. Then, and now. I don’t effing like Obama, but I believe that it’s a fine thing to protect our current AND our former presidents.

      I agree that our former Presidents should receive protection for life. They remain HVT’s for life and they would be an incredibly sensitive intelligence asset for those who would seek to harm us.

      Barry’s still a lying, disingenuous, hypocrite, coward, piece of doggy doo.

    What these comments tell me is conservative people by nature are less hypocritical and far more sensible than liberals. While we may not like Obama we’re willing to be consistent with our views and opinions even when as in this case it benefits him. The left would not be so inclined.

    he changed it back from10 yr protection which was ok because after ten yrs his HVT status for info he possesses would be outta date.

    personally I think Gitmo has 24 hrprotection, maybe he could move there.
