In The President’s Secret Service


I know what I want for Christmas!

Very Interesting reading..most of it we already surmised, pity us.

From the Secret Service/Very interesting snippets from Ronald Kessler’s

book about our presidents. Here are snippets from a book of “Impressions

& Observations” of Secret Service personnel assigned to guard U.S.

Presidents/First Ladies, and Vice Presidents.

JOHN & JACQUELINE KENNEDY
*A philanderer of the highest order. *
*She ordered the kitchen help to save all the left-over wine during a State

dinner, mixed it with fresh wine and served again during the next White

House occasion.*

*LYNDON & LADYBIRD JOHNSON
*Another philanderer of the highest order. In addition, LBJ was as

crude as the day is long. Both JFK and LBJ kept a lot of women in

the White House for extramarital affairs, and both had set up “early

warning systems” to alert them if/when their wives were nearby.

Both Kennedy & Johnson were promiscuous and oversexed men.*
*She was either naive or just pretended to “not know” about her

husband’s many liaisons.*

*RICHARD & PAT NIXON
*A “moral” man but very odd, weird, paranoid, etc. He had horrible

relationship with his family, and in a way, was almost a recluse.*
*She was quiet most of the time.*

*SPIRO AGNEW
* Nice, decent man, everyone in the Secret Service was surprised by his downfall. *

*GERALD & BETTY FORD
*A true gentlemen who treated the Secret Service with respect and dignity.

He had a great sense of humor. * *She drank a lot!*

*JIMMY & ROSALYN CARTER
*A complete phony who would portray one picture of himself to public

and very different in private, e..g., would be shown carrying his own

luggage, but the suitcases were always empty; he kept the empty ones

just for photo ops. Wanted the people to see him as pious and a non-

drinker, but he and his family drank alcohol a lot! He had disdain for

the Secret Service, and was very irresponsible with the “football” with

nuclear codes. He didn’t think it was a big deal and would keep military

aides at a great distance. Often did not acknowledge the presence of

Secret Service personnel assigned to serve him.*
*She mostly did her own thing.*

*RONALD & NANCY REAGAN
*The real deal — moral, honest, respectful, and dignified. They treated

Secret Service and everyone else with respect and honor. Thanked

everyone all the time. He took the time to know everyone on a personal

level. * One “favorite” story that has circulated among the Secret

Service personnel was an incident early in his Presidency, when he

came out of his room with a pistol tucked on his hip. The agent in charge

asked: “Why the pistol, Mr. President?” He replied, “In case you boys can’t

get the job done, I can help.” It was common for him to carry a pistol.

When he met with Gorbachev, he had a pistol in his briefcase. Upon

learning that Gary Hart was caught with Donna Rice, Reagan said, “Boys

will be boys, but boys will not be Presidents.” [He obviously either did not

know or forgot JFK’s and LBJ’s sexcapades!]*
*She was very nice but very protective of the President; and the Secret

Service was often caught in the middle. She tried hard to control what the

President ate, and he would say to the agent, “Come on, you gotta help me

out.” The Reagans drank wine during State dinners and special occasions

only; otherwise, they shunned alcohol; the Secret Service could count on

one hand the times they were served wine during their “family dinner”.

For all the fake bluster of the Carters, the Reagans were the ones who lived

life as genuinely moral people.*

*GEORGE H. & BARBARA BUSH
*Extremely kind and considerate Always respectful. Took great care in

making sure the agents’ comforts were taken care of. They even brought

them meals, etc. One time Barbara Bush brought warm clothes to agents

standing outside at Kennebunkport ; one agent was given a warm hat, and

when he tried to nicely say “no thanks” even though he was obviously

freezing, President Bush said “Son, don’t argue with the First Lady, put

the hat on.” He was the most prompt of the Presidents. He ran the White

House like a well-oiled machine.*
*She ruled the house and spoke her mind.*

*BILL & HILLARY CLINTON
*Presidency was one giant party. Not trustworthy — he was nice mainly

because he wanted everyone to like him, but to him life is just one big

game and party. Everyone knows of his sexuality.*
*She is another phony. Her personality would change the instant cameras

were near. She hated with open disdain the military and Secret Service.

She was another one who felt people were there to serve her. She was

always trying to keep tabs on Bill Clinton.*

*ALBERT GORE
* An egotistical ass, who was once overheard by his Secret Service detail

lecturing his only son that he needed to do better in school or he “would

end up like these guys” — pointing to the agents.*

*GEORGE W. & LAURA BUSH
*The Secret Service loved him and Laura Bush. He was also the most

physically “in shape” who had a very strict workout regimen. The

Bushes made sure their entire administrative and household staff

understood they were to respect and be considerate of the Secret

Service.
*She was one of the nicest First Ladies, if not the nicest; she never

had any harsh word to say about anyone.*
*KARL ROVE was in fact, though, the guy who was the most caring

of the Secret Service in the administration.*

Present day:

*BARACK & MICHELLE OBAMA
*” Clinton all over again” – hates the military and looks down on the

Secret Service. He is egotistical and cunning; looks you in the eye and

appears to agree with you, but turns around and does the opposite —

untrustworthy. He has temper tantrums.*
*She is a complete bitch, who basically hates anybody who is not black;

hates the military; and looks at the Secret Service as servants.*
A taxpayer voting for Obama is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders.

    Most everything here does not surprise me one bit, although before all was known about Kennedy’s liaisons I thought him to be a man of high moral standing. In spite of that I still consider myself a fair judge of character and I like to look as well as listen to the person when they are speaking, you can tell a lot from their eyes, their inflections and their mannerisms. Thanks for this post CHB..
