Sarah Palin should receive immediate Secret Service Protection if she runs for President
Angelocracy News and Politics ^ | 2/7/2011 | Angelocracr Xue

Sarah Palin should receive immediate Secret Service Protection if she runs for President.

           Jesse Jackson got early Secret Service protection when he ran for President. Obama asked for and got early Secret Service protection  in the last election. They should do the same for Sarah Palin.  Do I think there is a great risk to her life? Yes I do. I used to worry about it a little. But now I worry about it a lot.  Top people in the Democratic Party and the media  were quick to call Palin a racist during the last election.  And that planted the seeds of hate into the minds of a lot of people.  Then again after the shooting in Tucson, they said Palin was responsible. And the threats to Palin went though the roof. Sarah Palin had to increase protection for her and her family.  The people who tried to blame Sarah Palin for the shootings in Tucson were idiots.  Some of them were idiots.  I think some were intentionally trying to provoke violence against Sarah Palin.

Don’t hyperventilate...

Title 18, Crimes and Criminal Procedures
Sec. 3056. Powers, authorities, and duties of United States Secret Service

(a) Under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, the United States Secret Service is authorized to protect the following persons...

...(7) Major Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates and,within 120 days of the general Presidential election, the spouses of such candidates. As used in this paragraph, the term ‘’major Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates’’ means those individuals identified as such by the Secretary of the Treasury after consultation with an advisory committee consisting of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the minority leader of the House of Representatives, the majority and minority leaders of the Senate, and one additional member selected by the other members of the committee. The protection authorized in paragraphs (2) through (7) may be declined.

I really fear for her safety. I am huge fan of her, following her career path months before McCain picked her. When he did, I was doing cartwheels because of the excitement I had over her as VP. But at this point, I think I would breathe a sigh of relief if she announced she would not run. I would be on pins and needles everyday of her campaign.

Well then President Bush waived that for then Senator Obama, because he got Secret Service protection LONG before he was the Democratic nominee for president. Look it up!

NBC News May 3, 2007 - WASHINGTON — The Secret Service said Thursday that Sen. Barack Obama was being placed under their protection, the earliest ever for a presidential candidate.
Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren said Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff authorized Obama’s protection after consultations with the congressional advisory committee.

If and when Palin actually announces her candidacy, she’ll be offered protection. Not like she can’t afford a bodyguard...

Mr. Obama was already a millionaire from his two books, but he didn’t hire private security. Is there a different standard for men and women or is it a black & white thing?

Okay, please explain what it is you meant. It sounded to me like you were saying that Governor Sarah Palin was “once again” “playing the victim card” and all the threats we’ve been hearing about since September 2008 are bogus or a figment of her imagination.

FUP. I realy have had enough of your anti Palin BS.

If anyone needs protection in this country, it's her.

Knowing you through your constant attack posts on her, you'd be happy if something did happen to her.

I’m saying ALL outspoken conservatives: Rush , Malkin, Bachmann, Hannity, etc, and yes Palin, get death threats regularly. And she is nothing more than a pundit right now, until and unless she announces. Not one damn dime for SS protection for potential candidates...EVER.

If anyone needs protection in this country, it's her.

And if anyone needs to determine, and take necessary steps to, that end it is herself.
Amazing, that many of her supporters believe they need to make decisions on her behalf, as if she isn't capable of doing that.

I don’t know if he hired private security. I do know that he was an announced candidate for the Presidency of the United States and a sitting United States Senator. Hillary Clinton, as the spouse of a former President, was already under the watchful eye of the Secret Service. If Palin were to announce she were a candidate, she would be provided the same protection.

"If and when Palin actually announces her candidacy, she’ll be offered protection."

You know that how? Think about who is leading the executive branch at this moment:

** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun!”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard!”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat!”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish our enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

Take a breath and think of something soothing, then go back a read who it is that determines which candidates get Secret Service protection. Is it the Executive Branch? No, it is a group led by the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Do you know who the Speaker of the House is? Come on - take a guess... Here’s what Palin and the Palinistas are going to need to do if she is EVER to be taken seriously as a leader: Grow a thicker skin! Political leadership ain’t for folks who are incapable of handling criticism or pathologically incapable of not responding to every perceived slight. If she decides to run, the gloves are coming off - I don’t think she can handle it.

“Thicker skin?”, are you higher than a kite? No one in modern political history has been attacked, derided, ridiculed, vilified, satirized, lampooned and been investigated half as much as Governor Sarah Palin has since 2008. If you can think of someone, please name them. They have attacked her, her children, her spouse, her office, her books, her TV show, her appearances, her accent and her politics. Have you been in a cave since 2007?

Threat? From Whom? It’s the political reality. When the candidates throw their hats in the ring, they should expect their opponents to hit them where it hurts. That’s how it works. And like I said, I don’t think Palin has the temperament...

Maybe she learned the lesson of President Bush, who almost never fought back against attacks & smears and left office at about 20% favorability.

Do you really believe that nonsense? You must be smokin' dope! Anyone on the right that opens their mouth will be attacked by the presstitute whores. Sarah Palin has the brains to not be defined by the media whores! Look at Dan Quayle - he went to a Spelling Bee for God's sake and THE PRINCIPAL told him the cards were checked prior to the event. The principal was to blame but Quayle became defined BY THE MEDIA for the principal's mistake. Palin is smart by not letting Obama's trained monkey's define her!

In all my life I have never seen a political candidate make statements like:

** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun!”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard!”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat!”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish our enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

What we are seeing is a chief executive actually pushing people and encouraging violence toward opponents. This is the justification of mob violence.

And you are basically condoning it!!!
