    However initially it leaked out that O was getting 400% more. Now that's downplayed with vague statement.
    The "leak" you refer to was only found in one rather sensationalistic book, and no source was ever revealed.  And it was not downplayed with vague statement, it was flatly contradicted in testimony before Congress.
    Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) wanted to know whether Obama faced a greater threat to his security than past presidents.

    Sullivan said that published reports claiming that Obama faced a 400 percent increase in death threats were incorrect. "I'm not sure where that number comes from," he said. The number of threats against Obama, he said, "are the same level as it has been for the last two presidents."

      hard to believe O's is the same level.
      clearly you know more about it than I. I did read the diary and thought I got the information there, but know nothing beyond that.
