A UFC fighter, made a lame joke about fighting the President.
And Moe has a brief breakdown.
The problem isn’t that the Secret Service following policy, the problem is that there is no longer room for judgment in the proper execution of defense and security concerns. These are smart, and well trained people, or at least they should be, and by removing judgment from their occupational requirements weakens them not strengthens.
[update] Also, we’ve had 44 presidents (actually 43) and 4 of them have been assassinated and at least 4 more that I know of (this is just off of memory) have survived attempted assassinations. so 44(actually 43) divided by 4, or 8, depending on if you are including nearly successful as well as actually successful, then that’s not exactly a great track recrod for “the most powerful man in the world.” and his security.
