Those are Secret Service guys. In the future, they might just be called, The SS.

Actually being fair to Obama rooftop security goes whereever the President goes. I saw them in Saint Paul for the Repub convention they are the standard as far as the Secret Service detail.

There are always Secret Service sniper teams when the President is out and about. Unless they started actually shooting at protesters, this is a tempest in a teapot.

No big deal here folks, move along. Ever since that 80 year old guy shot up the Holocaust Museum in DC, I don't think they can take any chances. I would, however, add a cautionary note to the two elderly rabble rousers — you may be the first to have your Medicare benefits cut. Chicago plays tough, Granny. They'll kick your walker right out from under you without a second thought. ;-)

This is a stupid irresponsible post. You have a lot of impressionable (not to mention gullible) people here on FR, and this kind of post can make some of the more emothionally and mentally challenged believe that the other side is prepared to take violent action against them - which in turn may cause them to do something really stupid.
STOP IT!!!

Actually, I think they always have snipers on the roofs when the president visits a venue like that.

Now the SWAT teams called in to control citizens singing God Bless America is another thing altogether.

To be quite honest I rather expect the security measures were probably requested by the Secret Service and the big O didn’t have a thing to do with it. I dislike the man as much as anyone, but let’s not get stupid here.

I never said anything about Obama calling these goons out. These people are trouble and they are 'goons'. They are too eager, too authoritarian and too well prepared for what they were dealing with. If they want real danger and confrontation I say join the friggin Army or Marines and deal with some real terrorists.

I didn't raise my son to be like this. They have a hero complex and a chip on their shoulder.

I'm inclined to view this as prudent by the authorities.

If violent leftists and jihadists showed up but the SWAT teams were not present, what would the reaction here be?

The Tea Partiers were told to stay on the sidewalks while the riot squad marched in formation down the street and took their positions, in the street. Their tactic is to make a rigid demand of the protesters and, when one of them, does not comply with the demand, that becomes the pretext to move the entire group out. I can see a strategy here. If there were plants in the group, it would be easy for a few to them to step out into the street; causing a crackdown on the whole group.

Actually they were there for McCain cuz as I remember Bush spoke by satelite to the convention. It is simply standard Secret Service detail stuff. However the detail in Quincy was hilarious to the max though.

So the abused enter into a dependency relationship with their abuser. They say "So it always has been ...".

I suggest you grow up and see this through the eyes of a Free American.

When President George W. Bush was in Columbia, MO during his last Presidential race there were snipers on the stadium towers.

I spoke with the snipers and its SOP for them to travel with any President.

As much as Obama likes to consider himself “special” this has nothing to do with O and his narcissism/

That’s most likely the case, although per by earlier post, few will admit to it.

That's EXACTLY right! The Robocop wingnuts are way over the top.

But, folks please quit freaking out. The Secret Service uses a whole layered defense system that includes local cops, their own assets, and sometimes the military. That includes sniper/counter sniper teams.

The Secret Service's job is to protect the POTUS, regardless of how big a tool he may be.

I was living in Colorado Springs when President Bush (geez, I miss that man) spoke at the Air Force Academy. The USAFA SPs had armored vehicles as part of their assets INSIDE the USAFA. Security was unbelievable and this was in one of the most friendly venues and towns President Bush could have possibly been in.

Let's not start seeing a boogey man where none exists.

Your post is the stupid one. There was NO need for the riot squads to be called out by pussy obami’s people. He hates white people and looks down with disgust at anyone who disagrees with his dictatorship. There is no over-reaction by freedom loving people.
So to sum it up, you can KISS MY ASS.

Well, to me it reminds me of the British forces in Boston before and after the Tea Parties and the Liberty incident. It AIN'T tolerable to FREE Americans.

Any decent vicar should know that too.
