    1. I think it’s been this way since at least Reagan.

    2. It’s probably been that way since JFK’s assassination. The difference between the presidents afterwards if how willing they are to waste all that time/money just to go get a hamburger for themselves so they can pretend to be “one of the people” as opposed to just ask the White House cook to make one.

      • There is no difference between their willingness to waste time/money. Every single president tries to do that. Nixon, Carter, Reagan,Clinton, Bush and his Sequel all did it.

        Let’s not pretend otherwise.

        The only thing that’s changed is the amount of outrage we’re instructed to feel.

    3. As I undertand it there has been an excalating level of security on each sucessive president.

      This actually seems small. I lived in DC when Clinton was in office and I counted 30+vehicles in his caravan.

      I’d imagine there’s is much more security than this. They’re not going to say exactly what’s protecting him. Don’t want to give terroists and teabaggers too much information.

        Very nice of you to make that small distinction, but I don’t think the Tea Party is a physical threat to anyone, much less the president.

        It’s been this way since JFK, with more and more buildup after the attempts on Ford and Reagan, and there are more layers of security that are not mentioned here. Nearly all protective service details follow this same pattern to a lesser or greater extent.

        • Hello, Alice. Nice to see you.

          The distinction was more than small. If I considered the teabaggers violent I would have just said terrorists.

          No, despite their promises of second amendment solutions, revolution, leaving coffins on people’s lawns , and sending death threats, the Tea Party has kept it non-violent. I prefer to judge people on what they’re done. I wish the Tea Party was capable of the same thing.

          The point of not giving Teabaggers too much information is that, while they have been non-violent, they are a little overzealous. I could picture a crowd of Teabaggers attempted to harass the Presidential Motorcade. Remember the mob swarming Prince Charles’ car in the UK? Similar situation. Sometimes passion over ides reason.

          The tragedy would be that the Secret Service takes that thing very seriously. They would react in a bad way to a mob swarming the president. Remember the secret service’s duty is to protect the President at all costs. They aren’t supposed to give people who make threatening moves towards the president the benefit of the doubt.

          It would be an altogether bad situation. I don’t want anything to happen to the Tea Party members. Even though I disagree with them, I genuinely wish no harm on them.

    4. If I were president I’d travel only by Marine 1. Want a fucking burger? Shut the fucking road down and land on it.
