Thread: I amazed my wife last night...
"Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

So quit acting like an abrasive teenage fu**tard, kay? 'Cause you don't know what the hell you're talking about and you look like you are either A) stirring up shit to be a dick in which case you may well soon be doing it elsewhere. Or B) A clueless idiot.
Lets give you the benefit of the doubt and go with B.

At the same time they are busy securing the route, the status and welfare of FLOTUS and their daughters, checking and confirming the line of succession should something happen to POTUS, they have to sweep the area, and secure it so there are no nasty surprises waiting for him when he comes out.
The only job they have is to protect POTUS. And if they have to sit on him to do it, they will. At the same time they are checking on the Veep as he is immediate 2IC, they are checking whether he goes to the WH or to NEACP, if the air routes are safe and that the immediate area is "sanitised"
They coordinate with NEACP, Omaha, SAC, USAF HQ, their immediate superiors, they check to ensure local authorities are in place and that the roads will be clear on the trip back.
One of their biggest nightmares is a motorcade caught in traffic or pinned down, then they go defensive and THAT they do not like.
All this takes time.
"Mr President , the US is under attack, stay put until we tell you, sir"
More or less those, would be the exact words the agents would whisper to him, meanwhile, unobtrusively, weapons are readied and the "heavy weapons" team is now on the move, ready to blow the head off anything or anyone that even looks remotely dangerous.
The President leaving the school and suddenly coming under sniper fire is just ONE scenario, another was the distinct possibility that another plane was aimed at the WH....so they dont deliver him to ANY location until they know it is secure.
The job of the Secret Service is to protect the President, from threats both external , internal, and when needed, to protect the man from himself.
You're an idiot.

Could you explain to me what could have been done differently if Bush would have said "excuse me, I have to go, something has come up" and left?

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

I have seen better on a facebook page.....One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.
Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.
