As many times as Obama's Life has been threatened, some right here on this Forum...I can see where he might need it because if the Racism that still exists in this Nation. But, I can't for the Life of me, see why Bush needs it, unless it's to protect him from being captured and taken to other countries that have convicted him, in abstentia, for War Crimes. Neither can I see why Future Presidents might need it, when we don't even know who they will be or what they may do.
I wonder if it's all because of the rising violence in this Country and the Country's Leaders are well aware of it. Yet, they don't seem to have the capability of knowing anything to do about it, other than to protect themselves.
Notice that it was a Republican that sponsored the Bill, not President Obama. And I certainly fail to see how it's going to save us money.
And I certainly don't think the Taxpayers should foot the Bill forever, when all the Presidents can well afford to provide their own Lifetime Security, if they deem it necessary! I think 10 years was sufficient and necessary, but NOT a Lifetime!

Gerald Ford's Secret Service agents made me leave a certain section in an auditorium during a seminar in 1998.

How could they have been Ford's Secret Service Agents, if a former President only has them for 10 years , as the Article says? Ford hadn't been President for more than 10 years, in 1998...alot more than 10 years. He hadn't been President since around 1975, I think.

OK, I Googled it and here's the answer I found:
----------

How long do former presidents receive Secret Service protection after they leave office?

In 1965, Congress authorized the Secret Service (Public Law 89-186) to protect a former president and his/her spouse during their lifetime, unless they decline protection. In 1997, Congress enacted legislation (Public Law 103-329) that limits Secret Service protection for former presidents to 10 years after leaving office. Under this new law, individuals who are in office before January 1, 1997, will continue to receive Secret Service protection for their lifetime. Individuals elected to office after that time will receive protection for 10 years after leaving office. Therefore, President Clinton will be the last president to receive lifetime protection.

Well that's just not good enough anymore. If we want to climb out of the hole we keep finding ourselves in we need to do something different. What we have been doing got us here.
