Do you have the Secret Service retrieve it for you? It's a waste of taxpayer dollars. Like bringing a sharpshooter out with you when you go hunting, maybe?

To the question as to whether daddy let's him drive it. Things tend to come in threes.

1. Mountain bike face plant

2. Segway face plant

3.........

I have a very close friend who is in the Secret Service. He rotates details between GW, Cheney and some others throughout the year. He's been doing this for 9 years now. When the secret service goes on a detail, they plan and pack for every imagineable circumstance. All this cost was a few minutes from a bottle of air. I guarantee the agent was there and ready to go. He gets paid the same detail pay reguardless of sitting in the chase boat or going in the drink.

What Glen E said. For what its worth dept. when you get employed with the Secret Service, they ask what hobbies you have (like hiking, diving, fishing etc) In case a President or ex Persident has these kind of interests you are called to go with him when he goes on vacation or to be personal protection.

That's Not a waste of tax payers dollars this is.

6 years ago my brother and I were fishing out of Harkers Island with Brian Horsley. We happened to be down their on a day that Sr. was out fishing also. Bush is in one boat with a guide and a helper. Following them are no less then 6 center consoles all with SS guys. Add to that 1 state police helio, 1 CG helio, 1 44 foot" CG cutter? and 2 other smaller CG boats. What a nighmare, we could not have gotten out of there any faster. What was funny was seeing 2-3 service guys dressed in slacks and blazers on the center console boats. Guess they didn't get the word today was a fishing day.

Can you imagine what a mess it would be if Hillary or Obama went fishing?

Of course we all remember Kerry's duck hunting trip.
