He will eventually have to come outside before the cameras, with that silly shit-eating grin on his face, but don’t worry, he’ll bring his idiot boards along and he’ll be finished with it in less than 2 minutes and back on the links in no time.

He's ready! The door is locked, the blinds drawn and there is a plastic bag over the smoke detector...

BTW, I've wondered what the Secret Service is supposed to do when they observe a President engaging in actual criminal activity. Does anyone know?

So he'll be talking to himself in a room which is totally empty, save for some people who are paid to be there with him?

What's the difference between him doing that and campaigning?

Is the day today considered “election eve,” or is it only nighttime? I thought he was going to DE today?

After a weekend of campaigning in four states watching the wonderful sustained cheering reception of GHWB and GWB throwing out the first pitch at the fourth game of the World Series in Arlington last night in front of 40,000 plus fans with millions of national and world wide TV viewers watching, President Obama will spend Election eve behind-closed-doors at the White House today checking on Expedia and other travel sites for Nov 1st flights to India.

Pretty sure they ignore it. They did when the Bush daughters got caught drinking underage. The book "In the President's Secret Service" made it sound like the SS agents were just a few seats away from the Bush girls when they were confronted and asked for ID.

His first meeting is at 9:45am and his last is at 11:00am?
Very busy schedule - Is he going to Walk the Dog afterward?

The rest is a clean slate

Yes, it's been a stunning success for the anointed one. His last 48 hours on the campaign trail have witnessed several embarrassing episodes - half-full rallies, hecklers, wino begging the motorcade - so his handlers have pulled him. No public appearances as the boy-king licks his wounds. Then, jetting off to Indonesia, where he'll pray in a mosque, as he abandons his party in the aftermath of the work electoral shellacking in American history, in an election widely understood to be a referendum on his presidency. That ought to do wonders for the old approval ratings.

"Pretty sure they ignore it. They did when the Bush daughters got caught drinking underage. The book "In the President's Secret Service" made it sound like the SS agents were just a few seats away from the Bush girls when they were confronted and asked for ID."

I imagine there must be some sort of a line. Maybe they ignore misdemeanors? How about felonies? Capital crimes? Would they stand by and just watch? Somehow, I doubt it.

How about hard drugs?

The SS’s job is to protect the President - whomever that might be. So it would seem to me thAt in order for them to do that effectively, that they would have to have the trust of the person they are protecting.

Is there a line that can be crossed that would prompt them to report crimes?

I would like to think so. But what that line might be, they aren’t saying.

This reminds me of Jimmy Carter, when he stayed holed up in the Whitehouse while Americans were being held hostage in Iran, and refusing to light the Christmas tree.

I think their philosophy is that their mission is to protect the President and his family. If they came down on little stuff like the Bush girls drinking, it would create a motivation for the protectees to ditch their Secret Service detail. Similarly, they would not stick their noses into executive-branch discussions that the Congress might like to declare criminal (Iran-Contra, for example).

I would hope to think that they would not permit a protectee to commit murder in front of them.

Not if the super secret plans to leave Tuesday evening for India prove real...

Lots of obfuscation going on about departure dates:

WASHINGTON: WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama is likely to arrive in India on November 5 instead of November 7 as originally scheduled. He will leave Washington DC on the night of November 4 soon after the mid-term Congressional election where many pundits are predicting severe reverses for the Democratic Party.

Well then, I sure hope India will ‘adopt’ him.

Just send AF One (and however many others) and all the equipments back.

They can keep the Mrs. and all their entourage, too. [It’s on US. Free of charge.]
