You know, this just struck me.

Does anyone recall that the (universally derided and hated) George Dubya Bush ever needed this kind of security, even when visiting our erstwhile allies?

...and on that topic, how much security did Obaama insist upon while on the trip where he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia?

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.
