    Always remember, it is them and then there is you and I. No way terrorism effects anyone other then the Obama. Good to hear he will have armed protection for the rest of his life. I guess he included GWB as a cover.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has signed into law a bill granting lifetime Secret Service protection to former presidents and their wives.

    The measure Obama signed Thursday applies to presidents elected after Jan. 1, 1997, specifically Obama and former President George W. Bush. It reverses a 1994 law that ended Secret Service protection 10 years after a president leaves office. Under that law, the Homeland Security secretary could extend such protection on a temporary basis.

    Oh I suppose nothing really after all I can afford a armed gaurd.

    Obama spending more money we don't have is not a problem.

    I think it a good thing because it includes GWB and he has much more of a chance of a left wing loon then does Obama anyone on the right.
