I have a feeling someone's going to try to blackball these guys. Luckily the Secret Service seems to be pretty immune to the political bullshit most of the time.
Good for them.
I am sure Biden treats them like shit. Heck, he charges them rent so they can do their jobs and protect his dumb ass at his mansion in Delaware.
Don't know about Biden, but I hear his wife is really nice.
Bad precedent letting Secret Service do this. I guess they didn't have any hookers available...
Yep we need some strong dems to institute some pastry control.
I don't have a problem with the purchase, it's the political statement. Same problem I have with guys in uniform attending political events.
Secret Service don't give up their civilian rights when they take the job. They're just as free to speak their minds as you or I. Also, unless they're part of the uniformed division, they're probably wearing street clothes.
You can have my bear claw when you pry it from my cold dead hands.
It could have just as easily been that they were tired of every single place that was approached about a stop fawning all over them. Maybe they found the "NO" refreshing. Maybe that bakery was going to be a security nightmare due to location or layout, and the refusal saved them some headache. Lots of possible motivations at play here.
They're also cops. Cops like pastries.
What I want to know is why the muffin store owner ratted on them for buying them. I understand he was happy to tell Biden to go pound sand. I also understand the Secret Service threw him a lot of business for it. But dummy up stupid. Now these guys could be reassigned to tracking down phony $20 bills in Pigs Dick Arkansas.
The politics of the USSS are a bitch as it is. I assure you an internal has already been opened on his entire detail.
I have a strong inkling that either this writer is just a dick and making shit up for a story.
Most people don't know what the Uniformed Division is anyway. They often get confused with TSA or Security Guards. Most folks only think of the earpiece and sunglasses when they think of the USSS.
What sucks harder during a POTUS election year- being a politician and having to be asked about going to smoothie shops or being a political reporter and having to write about crap like this knowing the collective jizz that's about to be sprayed over the comments forum?
Remember when Kerry was skiing and one of his secret service agents tripped him by mistake and he called the guy an idiot?
It is an Examiner story, wouldn't surprise me. Doesn't it seem a bit unprofessional to make a public statement like that about the people you're being paid to protect?
He turned him away because Obama said "you didn't build that." The guy's obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed.
I want to boycott this place just for its name.
Because America has become a nation of rat-weasels playing "gotcha".
How much you want to bet he has a government-backed small business loan...
That fact that people are getting the better of Obama is really getting under your skin.
Just remember Obama gave the independent vote to Mittens by selecting a idiot VP. Obama gave the small business owner vote to Mittens by shitting on their hard work.
You guys say there is no Liberal media? Well it's apparent now what a dummy Biden is. Had the media gone after him just as much as Palin I wonder if Biden's mental deficiencies would have came to light long before he made comments that even the most liberal news can't ignore.
Seriously at this point Mittens and Ryan could go back home and just hang out until the election and still win this.
Yep, total idiot.
I'd have as much of a problem if some libtard shop owner denied Romney or Ryan the chance for a photo-op and the Secret Service made the same comments. Totally unprofessional.
The store owner can do whatever he wants, it's the Secret Service doing something like that I have a problem with. Still doubt it happened. Guy saw how the Chik Fil A thing was a boom for their business and thought he'd pull the same move.
Oh a typo. You got me sir. I love how all you once raging liberals have now settled down after seeing what a piece of shit your messiah really is. Yet you still try to act like you're smarter then the people on this board that saw it from day one.
