    as to the original post!!!!!

    anytime a POTUS visits anywhere USA, the CIA and Secrete Service are there 2 weeks prior to the visit.

    Man hole covers are tack welded down, the bridges, both over and under are inspected along the route and 24 hours prior to the visit the bridges are reinspected and guarded. One patrol car is stationed at each bridge 24 hours in advance and during the visit and not to mention all the stuff we don't see. Snipers along the route, medical staff cleared before arrival, planned escape routes...blah,blah,blah,.

    There is a ton of security before any visit. it cost tax payers an average of $500,000 per visit (includes security, Air Force One and so on)

    These guy don't protect NObama, nor did they Protect Bush or Clinton. they protect the President of the United States, they don't care what the persons name is.

    Exactly why President W Bush stayed either at the White House or at his ranch and why O'Bummer should stop running around the world as well.

    Sorry, I have participated at the individual level, and really, if you want to win, you whomp the enemy with everything you've got. If you want a political solution, then that's an entirely different story... I'm sure you know that, and probably at lot of us other "baby boomers" here realize that too...

    NObama's old lady is taking advantage of the American tax payer. The little foray to Spain cost the tax payer about 10 MILLION DOLLARS.

    Living proof they are the elite of America and don't give a rats ass about the middle class or the poor

    NObama's "night out" to NYC......another 2 million bucks.......all on the tax payer.

    His little vacations to Hawaii, about 5 million per trip.....all on the tax payer


    Pelosi is another douche bag. When she was SOH, she went home every weekend, to CALIFORNIA on a government jet, 600G's per trip. EVERY WEEK.....at tax payer expense.

    We had a similar issue that the media had a field day where the minister of defense had a search and rescue helicopter pick him up from a fishing trip and he claimed it was a training exercise LOL.....not likely

    It cannot cost $600g to per trip coast to coast. We have some Challenger jets and the cost comes out to around $10,000 per hour of flight time (including maintenance etc)

    I understand. I did not mean to offend either.

    FWIW

    When this president travels it is always with full security and press, plus others!
    All on the governments nickle.
    As stated above, the size of his security is enormous!

    Yep, but his entire company of vehicles are also flown way before any President arrives too. Most don't know that. The vehicles you see any President in are kept under lock and key 24/7 and they are flown to his next scheduled visit way before any President arrives.

    Most of the time this fleet, and it is a fleet, of vehicles are kept at a local military site. If none is available then the Secret Service rents a wharehouse and ties is down with security, including the neighborhood, before his arrival.

    Before any President is allowed in any room or any type of confined space the entire space is gone through including dogs specifically trained to look for certain items.

    This also includes any attendees at any function. That is why the attendees must get there early, sit down and let the dogs go through the whole room.

    For good reason the secret services biggest fear is always public meeting out doors.

    I had friends who did this and the stress on them was enourmous because their world could and would change in a split second.

    What troubles me about all the security that the President requires for his protection, is that WHAT is he doing to requires that much protection FROM HIS OWN CITIZENS?

    there is also a second Air Force One, a decoy if-you-will, and alternative landing/takeoff sites.
