Obama signs bill giving himself lifetime Secret Service protection

President Barack Obama signed a bill into law on Thursday guaranteeing himself Secret Service protection for the rest of his life.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama signed the “Former Presidents Protection Act of 2012” on Thursday. The law affects Obama, former President George W. Bush and future presidents, who under current law would only be protected for 10 years after leaving office.

According to the press secretary’s office, the law “restores lifetime Secret Service protection of former Presidents who did not serve as President prior to January 1, 1997, and their spouses; and provides for protection of all children of former Presidents until they become 16 years of age.”

Why I Brought Piers Morgan That 'Little Book'

    Not a problem. It’s only tax payer’s money. We’ll just print more.

    I would have figured he’d contract with the Black Panthers to do that job. Maybe some Chicago mob types?


    Slick eh, the way he did this. It was for a 10 year period but he knows that he stands a real chance of being involved after he leaves office(if ever) so why not a free ride for all his predecesors. I was going to say peers but then I realized they were all, even the worst, men enough to proudly show their credentials and a BC and so far this clown hasn’t got the cajones to do anything like that……Your tax monies in action via the Faker in the WH…

    While he takes away OUR right to defend ourselves and our families. What a double standard.

  • Id rotate agents big time on this one.
    IE 3 months on job, 6 mos off.
    Or co hire ATF, FBI etc to stand Guard duty too.
    Share the load.

    Now, why would he need protection for the rest of his life? Don’t tell me he doesn’t know what he’s doing to this country.

    I agree Obama should have a lifetime of armed security. There are a number of Prison’s around the
    country that could offer this type of Security for LIFE!!!
