Have the feeling this last year of his presidency is going to be one of those "Let's sock it to 'em" situations where he bilks it for everything it's worth.

this guy is just not worth all the security costs, give him a concealed carry permit and let him defend his family like I do. Period.

That is their stupidity for paying it. If they didn't do the overtime then BO would have to come up with a different plan maybe go somewhere else that would pay the money.

Why does he deserve a concealed carry permit and I don't? That was dumb!

I don't see why they are peeing and moaning about overtime. Is there a law that says Hawaii has to pay for police protection? They took that upon themselves. When I become Governor see if it happens in Maryland.

whats the problem here the president is not allowed to take a much needed vacation

He has Secret Service. He shouldn't need any more security. They should be made to travel together and not separate. He should never be armed have armed security since he is trying to take away my rights. He is just another human being that should follow his own demands he puts on others.
