Obama's Relationship with Secret Service Agents (Vanity)
1/6/2008 | Self

Posted on 01/06/2008 11:11:37 AM PST by Dr._Joseph_Warren

Much has been made in the past about how poorly the Clinton's got alond with their Secret Service detail while the Bush's got along well with their agents.

Now that Obama is under the protection of Secret Service agents, I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about how he ineracts with them.

If Senator Obama doesn’t treat the Secret Service agents like dogs in a Bedouin camp, he’s still far ahead of the Clintons. I spoke to a Secret Service agent who had been on Hillary and Bill’s detail.

Know of a former secret service in Ft. Worth that says Hillery gets more and better looking women than Bill. But it is her communism that disgusts me, not her promiscuity.

No only have I read how bad the Clintons treat their Secret Service detail but a couple years ago I was talking to this guy in a bar in New Orleans who was in the Secret Service and reported that the Clintons were not very nice to them and that Bill and Hillary fought like dogs over the women each would shack-up with.

I certainly don’t like his politics but Obamaramalama acts and speaks like a gentlemen. I would bet that carries over to the people that protect him.

As a matter of fact, he did have a parrot, a red, white and blue parrot on his shoulder and the parrot said that Hillary is actually the daughter of Benito Mussolini and Hillary dyes her hair.

I would agree with that. Also, weren't the stories about the Clintons mistreating their underlings about Hillary and her devil spawn Chelsea? The Arkansas state troopers didn't say that Bubba mistreated them, just that they hooked him up. Bubba has that slick con mans charm, Hillary doesn't and I think that would rub off on his staff.

All right that sounds bad, but I think you know what I mean.

While I do not doubt the veracity of the statement it’s very unprofessional of a former Secret Service Agent to speak so candidly about his/her former assignments.

I supported Fred early on but his campaign never took off.

Fred won’t likely be the nominee. We will have another phony conservative nominee like Bush turned out to be, who will be lucky to win against the MSM onslaught.

FReepers will fall in line behind Rooty or Flipp Mitt, or Hucksterby, or whomever it is, and call anyone who criticizes the nominee a Dem supporter.

We’ll be told that the time to criticize was during the primary, even though said criticism is criticized during the primary.

*sigh*

It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Obama had extensive training by the Black Muslims. Nor would it surprise me if he’s extensively studied Denzel’s portrayal of Malcom X in the movie of the same name. He has all the earmarks of the Brotherhood.

I spoke with a Secret Service Agent who said the Klintons were not nice to work for and that the Bush's were nice. A few years ago it was known that working for Laura Bush's detail was the best job in town since she was so nice.

Unless Obama has snowjobbed me, I would be he is a pleasant guy as he makes himself out to be.

Professional ethics, like any other ethics, require Mutuality to continue to exist. Liberals have crushed ethics in government. A contract, even a social one, is broken if one side continually violates it. Respect for an office or person can be assumed until it is destroyed. After that it must be earned.

I see no fault in the guy. He got a graduate level course in disillusionment. He left the service, and nothing is further owed.

The behavior of the Clintons reflects upon their character. Those who are forced to be around them should avoid being perverted by that behavior.

Have you read Aldrich’s “Unlimited Access?” He was very careful in what was disclosed and he ensured his ethics remained intact.

Even better, instead of the juvenile “let’s bet,” why not explain what exactly you said that I disagree with, and why?

Unless you’re 12 years old or something, in which case, welcome to FR!

The only way I see that working is if Hillary is the nominee. Yes, we all despise Obama socialism as much as Hillary socialism, but the rest of the country isn't as fearful of him as they are of her. Iowa proved that to me.

Hillary is well known as a shrill harpy, even people who don't know how she and her spawn treated the Secret Service agents still get a creepy feeling about her. Obama doesn't cause that kind of reaction in the mushy middle.

I got the picture earlier today while watching The McLaughlin Group, Pat Buchanan made that point that the old Irish Brit-hating pol of the era of Al Smith and Joseph Kennedy was completely buried by the time that Jack Kennedy, Harvard-educated and WASPish, came on the scene in 1960. Barack Obama is of the newer generation of black politicians who has come up through the system, and doesn't think that the Presidency is an entry-level elected position, like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did.

White America is tired of being made to feel guilty by the old guard of African-American leadership, they are looking to feel forgiven. And Barack Obama, a man who has no slave ancestors in his past, is the guy to give the mushy middle the absolution it so pathologically feels it needs.

If Barry O beats the living crap out of Hillary on Tuesday, I'm going to start being very, very afraid. I want Hillary to alienate black voters by 'stealing' the nomination from Obama, but it has to be within some sort of reach for her to do this, in other words, they need to go to the convention essentially tied in the delegate count.

The "Rudy strategy" of gaining momentum from wins in big states on Super Tuesday will NOT work for Hillary. The states that Rudy is counting on to deliver him social liberal votes from country-club Republicans have large African-American segments of their Democrat voting population, and after they get the idea that Obama is a black man that white people can vote for, they will desert her in droves, with or without Oprah Winfrey exhorting them. She's been selling the sizzle, and the country won't know there's no steak until after the election.

Do the agents take an oath not to say anything? Are they bound by some law? Or, is it just a custom?

“I’m out......you ain’t worth a pissin match”

No, you aren’t capable of treading together an argument that is deeper than dismissive comments.

“your original post I responded to has as many assumptions about freepers anyway”

No - it has observations based on first hand experience. If you were capable of living outside a world of 1 liners, you’d see it, too.

Again - what specifically did you disagree with? Prove me wrong.

I suppose so.

But with the future of The Republic quite critical these days . . .

every bit of honesty about Shrillery is a partiotic duty of all who know the truth, imho.

IIRC they take an oath that includes a statement that they will not disparage the office holder. I could be mistaken.

I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with a Secret Service Agent. He would not criticize anybody who had been under their protection, including John Kerry. After some serious prompting he did agree that Kerry “acted abrasive” towards his security detail during the last election.

I am sure it is not a picnic being on Hillary’s Secret Service detail but there are tons of stories out there about how awful the task is with plenty of examples. However, the more stories you hear from unnamed sources less believable the stories become.

I saw Obama in a hotel lobby in Providence in November, 2006, and he was surrounded by a bunch of goons who suspiciously resembled the Fruits of Islam (or whatever those toughs are called).

I saw Obama speak at a rally in Iowa (consider it a recon mission) and saw no evidence of any such 'goons'.

Secret Service agents, on the other hand, were very obviously in attendance.
