Although I am not always a fan of the current administration's policies, it dawned on me today while watching the early news casts, how good of a job
these people are doing.
What caught my eye was footage of Obama on a beach in Hawaii, and while the Secret Service was not noticeable right away (camouflaged in board shorts
it seems), they were there. Some fans of Obama were saying hi to him, and maybe getting a bit close. At first it seemed strange that they were so
close, but it was mostly camera angle. So when it panned out a bit, you could see Secret Service Agent all around in board shorts holding towels
wrapped around their firearms. Very classy.
It also brought me back to what a good job they do. We have had one of the most polarizing Presidents in our history. I am sure that the number of
protesters have always outnumbered our Secret Service agents during the functions surrounding this administration. They have always kept their cool
for the most part, and acted accordingly.
I hope you all can join me in applauding the work of these agents. They have done an amazing job in reacting to possible threats, but also not
overreacting as well.
To many more years of amazing service!
