Gothamist. Purchased with the Wages of Hope and Change. Nicely played, Barak.

N.B. He'll be neighbors with the Annenbergs who he was just playing golf with. The Annenberg's estate/compound is apparently known as the "Camp David of the West." Will Barak be playing golf there again while rootin' for the slaughter of the people of Gaza?

That's true.

And from what I've read, I don't think that they would every release his soon-to-be "address(es)" until they have fully fortified the domicile.

I've read that Secret Service agents literally occupy a residence close to GWB's. Don't know if that was a "temporary," or a permanent arrangement.

The protection should be dropped after 10 years--the costs are simply ridiculous for the taxpayer to have to bear, indefinitely. (Obviously, I don't mean while in office, or even the first 10 years.)

FP Clinton signed the law restricting the protection to 10 years (to begin after his Presidency), and PBO nullified it a year or two ago.

Don't know if Nancy Reagan still has protection (probably), but the Clintons have been under Secret Service protection for 22 years, according to C-Span, and the Bushes for over 10 years--which is why PBO had to "re-do" the law.

Or the Bushes would have had to start paying for their own security protection.
