    I'm sure there are groups that intend to kill Bush and Cheney and take possession of their bodies, in the same style as we did with Obama.
    I wonder what it costs me and my fellow taxpayers to keep them safe?

    all former presidents receive secret service protection until they die. i don't like bush or cheney, but they deserve the same treatment as any other pres.

    Agreed on both points.

    Seriously AFB, this is the third time inside an hour you've talked about Obama being killed.

    If you're not careful, the Secret Service is liable to come knocking.

    I listened to Rush. I didn't realize the effect it had on my brain. Sorry.

    You know it's illegal to say, "I want to kill President [name]"

    Actually, I think they changed legislation so that any President elected after 1997 receives only ten years of secret service protection:

    President Bush loses his Secret Service protection in ten years... just lettin' ya know. - 236.com - News

    However, I believe it's in the works to change that legislation because nothing could be more damaging than to have a former president-no matter what approval ratings-be kidnapped, taken hostage, and tortured to death on the internet.

    I believe all former Presidents should be protected until they die.

    Did you really ask this question?

    Hey - I dislike Obama but he is an American president and should be properly protected until he dies of old age.

    Party lines should not even begin to enter this conversation. Shame on you.
