      The problem is getting his body on the plane. Won't happen. More people would die and he would not be harmed.

        The GOP hated Clinton so much that they pushed through a change for the Secret Service. Used to be former presidents and vice-presidents got SS protection for the rest of their natural lives after leaving office.

        Just to "stick it" to Clinton they put through a law (that Bill cheerily signed) limiting this to the first 10 years after office.

        SOoooo....Since His Fourth Branchness left office at the end of 2008 at the end of 2018 (OK, officially Jan. 20, 2019) the Dick of Cheney has to pay for his own protection. I don't believe any private firm he could hire would have access to the amount of information on potential threats that the Secret Service does.

        So, if on a dark and rainy night in March of 2019, an elite team would want to execute a plan to fire off a barrage of tranquilizer darts and bundle a certain "package" onto a private jet that files a flight plan to the Hague....or the back side of Paraguay.....or dropped barefoot by parachute onto Bora-Bora Afghanistan...... things get easier then.

        Just dreamin'.

          was Halliburton and has more than enough cash to hire his own private army.

        •  That's not right. They need it for life. How dumb (0+ / 0-)

          I want Obama to have protection for the rest of his life if he wants it. I feel our country owes it to him. We need to pay for it. He took over our country in a dark hour and though things are not perfect (far from it) we are still afloat despite the mechanations of Congressional Republicans.

          He gets more death threats than any other President. I read somewhere he gets about twice as much but that might be hearsay.

          So many nasty racists hate him. I think we should pay for his protection...he took a risk to be the first Black President.
