No. Bush had the usual security, but nothing like the kind of over-the-top stuff Obama has.
Typical difference: When Obama FINALLY agreed to visit Normandy Beach during his visit to France, the whole place was shut down and cleared of all visitors. Then he went. When George Bush went to Normandy earlier, the tourists were all there. And Bush actually waited his turn in line with them to go to the porta-potty. Can anyone imagine Obama ever doing that? Inconceivable.
Obama really thinks he will be attacked.
Only trouble is, conservatives don’t want a Commie martyr hanging over our heads.
Better to just remove him next year. Let his legacy as “worse than Carter” follow him through history.
