Robes, I think you’re reading into this a bit too far.. they were probably doing the same thing when Obama was in the states. In any case I don’t think the vulnerability of our president has historically been due to a lack of security protection.

@Jeff N., It may be a non-story for Americans (despite the fact that it shows the President’s protection engages in behavior not exactly suited to being prepared to protect THE PRESIDENT), but for Latin Americans it’s another example of how the “Yankees” like to use their countries as their brothels. And then when the Hugo Chavezes, Evo Moraleses and Sandinistas appear we raise our hands wondering “why do they hate us?”

as much as I hate that this non-story is getting as much press as it is.. this picture is still pretty damn funny.
