I wish this website would die already. No petition, even if it had 100 million signers will get any type of serious consideration.

Armed security (the SS) is not for Obama, it is for the President of the United States. Careful, when a guy we like gets elected the same will apply to him/her.

Did folks ever stop and consider that protecting the President is more like protecting all that presidential stuff that the American tax payer has paid for. What does AF 1 cost anyway?

It's for him too. He has protection for life.

Modify, eliminate PAID armed guards for the POTUS or take the cost of paying them straight from the paycheck of the POTUS.

Just an idea.

As for AF-1 I think they should use these new Boeing 787s :D.
