In today's "MX" magazine


"Barack Obama has come clean about his true motivation for contesting the US Presidency - to keep his daughters safe from undesirable suitors.

"The real reason is Secret Service protection for my girls as they enter their teenage years" the Democrat said, joking with voters at a Wisconsin barbecue.

"Whatever young guy comes by for a date, we're going to have one of these mean looking guys who dont crack a smile", he added, pointing to the dark suited agents monitoring the crowd.

"They're armed, they're dangerous"

Open mouth , jam in both feet, close mouth.

And this (http://www.turkishpress.com/nw.asp?s=u&i=080824185919.sz2tbtkz&t=Obama%20threatens%20to%20turn%20Secret%20Service %20on%20daughters%27%20suitors)


Obama offered Secret Service vetting to a local man, so that he could investigate the background of his daughter's fiance ahead of their wedding Monday.

Is this even LEGAL???? The service isn't his damned private detective agency..talk about ARROGANT

Arrogant and stupid. He's like the guy who is given a position, buys the suit, smokes the cigar and hasn't the faintest idea what job it is he is supposed to be doing.

Sounds like (even says) he was joking. He's allowed to make the odd joke. I don't see any humiliation of the Secret Service here. I bet they don't feel humiliated.

The second one, I doubt is even true. The Secret Service guy I spoke to in Israel took 18 months to get vetted, and he had had 20 years service in the air force.

I don't like Obama, but I'm struggling to find any reason to be outraged here.

They are sworn agents and professionals, not his personal goons.

Sonnabend...do you have a link to that article?

If the secret service started investigating the boys that came to date his daughters, would that be OK? Or would it be an invasion of privacy for the boys?

Again, joke. Like the ones that get posted here about guys who call for a date finding fathers cleaning their guns. People on this board think those are hysterical. :D

The Secret Service does not do the background investigations. They go along on the actual dates, which from the kids' point of view is no doubt a lot worse.

That might be an interesting comment, if "degregation" was a word. Since it is not, the comment is meaningless.

But remember how the Clintons treated the Secret Service?

Actually, seeing the disrespectful way Obama treats Service members, seeing that he is in fact insulting the very people who are there in the end to take a bullet for him..I'd say that this thread has done its job in exposing yet another facet of the ObaMessiah™ and the fact he is unfit to lead, unfit to be President, and unfit to command.

Nice photo, but if that's your date for tonight, it'll be a boring dinner. A little outside your species, isnt it?

I haven't seen any disrespect in film where the Secret Service is visible. The example you posted here is an example of a joke, not an example of disrespect. I think your hatred of the candidate is coloring your judgment.

I think your hatred of the candidate is coloring your judgment.Excuse me.

I do not hate Obama, I do not hate anyone.

I consider what he said to be cheap, stupid, ill conceived, unfunny, embarrassing to the detail assigned to him..and quite frankly, I would think that if I had a man with me, whose job it was to put his body and his life between me and a bullet,and who would not hesitate in doing so, I would treat him and his profession with the utmost respect and appreciation.

And I would amend my sense of humour accordingly.

I do not doubt he was joking. It was the measure of the man's character( or lack thereof), in my assessment, to make such a crass remark.

I also note, dear Linda, that neither of the Bush Presidents, nor Reagan nor many others I could name, ever made a comment like this, nor did they ever treat the USSS as their own personal goon squad\ (even in jest.)

Bottom line, Linda, it was NOT FUNNY and in the context of the men around him, a cheap giggle at their expense.

These men are hardened, highly trained professionals. They are not the punchline to his jokes.

If he is elected to the Presidency he will be around them for a long time..and they will be guarding his back, and his wife's, and his children...so maybe, just maybe, it might be a good idea for Barry Soetero / Barack Hussein Obama to think before opening his big yap next time?

Staying on the good side of a man who has my life in his hands, seems like pretty basic fucking common sense, wouldn't you agree, Lindanumbers?
