The security wall around the President is too high. Risk is part of the job.

That describes it very well. This person does not relate to the normal American. He has no clue as to what it is like to be an American. He has no idea of how to run a country of regular people because he does not know what it is to be one. All he wants is the fame, glory, and the money. January 20, 2013 will be the end of o'big mistake.
You got that right. One of the few things one can find out about Obama is that he got his grade school education in Indonesia. Obama truly is lacking in the knowledge of what being an American is. I will be glad to vote the empty suit out in 2012.

Interesting article.

I remember one of my friends got a pat down by the Sec Service before he was allowed to shake VP Cheney's hand at a McDonalds here in St. Paul.

Do we really need "about 100 to cook and clean for him."? Truthfully, not just for Obama, but for any president? I mean the guy has two arms just like me!
It's not just for him. The White House hosts dinners and other celebrations. If it's such an issue let's see if the next President reduces the staff. Unlikely.

I wish the bastard that is occupying our White House would act like a President for once and mingle just once with the people, so we could give him exactly what he has coming to him. We could carry out his sentence MUCH cheaper than the government could, and that would go toward the debt he used to bankrupt this Country. We wouldn't need a Congressional Impeachment Panel, a cell for solitary confinement, or a firing squad to carry it out...we could save Millions on the process alone for all of that!
I look forward to the secret service arresting you.

He is in a bubble....because most are not getting those goose bumps up their legs anymore! Most are still unemployed...while the rich were bailed out...Americans were spit on....while Americans struggle...illegals take jobs from them....and gay's can now kiss and tell in the military...while Americans suffer Obami and Mrs. Obami sit in the sun for Christmas paradise...was there no more foreign heads to stroke off?
