    You just know the president drives the secret service mad. 😦 I really wish he would not jog down the steps when deplaning and stay close to his security detail. There are some nutjobs on the far right and even left that I would not want near him.

      I would like to see the President stay with his secret servicemen. Stop running and walking from them.

      I agree Fred, looking at some of those secret servicemen make me want to say heck guys what have you guys been eating? I pray they are great at their job despite their looks.

    I love the way the young black man in a suit is looking at President Obama. You can’t tell me that this man’s very existence has not made a difference for this young man, and other minority youth who felt like they couldn’t do anything they ever dreamed of doing.

    The older fellow with something of a paunch worries me to death. He’s grown familiar to me, and I like him. Suppose he falls down suddenly with a heart attack. Pandemonium! They’ll think he’s been shot. The following guy will push President Obama to the tarmac and fall on top of him as a shield. Meanwhile the SS man is lying there needing immediate attention. Good grief!

    I hope these guys get weekly checkups, especially the older ones. I hope they have some kind of signal like, Officer Down! Or something. I can see the president running back to help him. Frankly, we could all do without that drama.

    Yes, yes, President Obama, please slow down!

    I like his youthful walk, jog, strut! The SS is getting their exercise plus a moving target is harder…

    I think that he gets a kick out of running hither and yon. He is just so lively and cheerful. He is just pure energy and it gives him a high I believe. I enjoy watching his enthusiasm.

    Does anyone know how these individuals get to be there for his arrival? They must (least I hope and pray) be cleared through some sort of security process.

    President Obama keeps his security detail in top shape, always on the run. I’ld love to hear the stories his security detail could tell, but realize that isn’t likely information to be shared. I keep them in my prayers, along with our wonderful First Family.

      EVERYONE is cleared and swiped before gaining access to the president.

          Hi Chips,

          Do You remember during the campaign a few times the president said that Michelle was “the closer.”

          That is all I need to know. LOL

          lol you’re something else you know lmao!! Won’t it be really something if that was true?
          LOL imagining Michelle going through a pat-down before greeting the President at the Residence doors in the white house hahahahaha

            PBO wouldn’t stand for that, his lazer beam eyes would telegraph:” Get your damn hands offa my woman!” remember Joe playing kissy face and that nice hug from Admiral Hotsy Totsy Mullens? Two words: No Way!! 😉
            ps- that would be hilarious if it were true, and I’m imagining all sorts of inappropriate situations where that policy could come back and bite him on his delish bum 😉
            pps-Dear Heavenly Father, forgive me for I know exactly what I’m doing and I’m doing it anyway 😉 Bless Miche and PBO and PBO’s delish bum. Amen.

            I have a feeling the only pat down Michelle will get will come from President Obama.

    I love the SS, really, I do. They are some of my fave men. But…..have y’all noticed how wonderfully thick they are? They’re cute, I’m just saying…….
    ps-PBO is sooooo fine, so fit, so fab 😉

    Joan is too much. There appears to be a lot of ‘new’ guys on the Prez’s detail. The only one I recognise is the white haired guy in the blue tie. I believe they are chosen for their experience but it really is not a good advert for the SS. LOL the Prez is sure putting them thru their paces.

    That FLOTUS clip is too cute – ‘don’t want to be on youtube’ n flashing.
