Secret Service Views On the Personalities Of Past Presidents:

Secret Service Views On the Personalities Of Past Presidents:

(Capt. Denny Keast flies for UAL and flew many SAM's for the White House. I flew 4 Presidential support missions in the C-141 out of Dover AFB, DE. Two for President Johnson and two for President Nixon.)

Johnson was a first class jerk and on the two occasions I flew for him, if the Secret Service and their Liaison in the Pentagon hadn't intervened, we would have had to stay on the airplane for hours while he (Johnson) was off somewhere.

Nixon never required that and the four stops we made with him he was cordial to the Secret Service and to me and my crew. Denny Keast we had a neighbor when I lived in DC who was part of the secret service Presidential detail for many years. His stories of Kennedy and Johnson were the same as those I heard from the guys who flew the presidents' plane.

Yes, Kennedy did have Marilyn Monroe flown in for secret "dates," and LBJ was a typical Texas "good ole boy" womanizer. Nixon, Bush, and Carter never cheated on their wives. Clinton cheated, but couldn't match Kennedy or LBJ in style or variety.

The information below is accurate: The elder Bush and current president Bush make it a point to thank and take care of the air crews who fly them around. When the president flies, there are several planes that also go, one carries the a rmored limo, another the security detail, plus usually a press aircraft. Both Bush's made it a point to stay home on holidays, so the Air Force and security people could have a day with their families.

WHAT WAS: Hillary Clinton was arrogant and abusive to her security detail. She forbade her daughter, Chelsea, from exchanging pleasantries with them. Sometimes Chelsea, miffed at her mother's obvious conceit and mean spiritedness ignored her demands and exchanged pleasantries regardless, but never in her mother's presence. Chelsea really was a nice, kindhearted, and lovely young lady. The consensus opinion was that Chelsea loved her Mom but did not like her.

Hillary Clinton was continuously rude and abrasive to those who were charged to protect her life. Her security detail dutifully did their job, as professionals should, but they all loathed her and wanted to be on a different detail. Hillary Clinton was despised by the Secret Service as a whole.

Former President Bill Clinton was much more amiable than his wife. Often the Secret Service would cringe at the verbal attacks Hillary would use against her husband. They were embarrassed for his sake by the manner and frequency in which she verbally insulted him, sometimes in the presence of the Secret Service, and sometimes behind closed doors. Even behind closed doors Hillary Clinton would scream and holler so loudly that everyone could hear what she was saying.

Many felt sorry for President Clinton and most wondered why he tolerated it instead of just divorcing his "attack dog" wife. It was crystal clear that the Clinton 's neither liked nor respected each other and this was true long before the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Theirs was genuinely a "marriage of convenience." Chelsea was much closer to her father than her mother, even after the Lewinsky scandal, which hurt her gravely.

Bill Clinton did in fact have charisma, and occasionally would smile at or shake hands with his security detail. Still, he always displayed an obvious air of superiority towards them. His security detail uniformly believed him to be disingenuous, false, and that he did nothing without a motive that in some way would enhance his image and political career. He was polite, but not kind. They did not particularly like him and nobody trusted him.

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN: Al Gore was the male version of Hillary Clinton. They were more friendly toward each other than either of them were towards former President Clinton. They were not intimate, so please don't read that in. They were very close in a political way. Tipper Gore was generally nice and pleasant. She initially liked Hillary but soon after the election she had her "pegged" and no longer liked her or associated with her except for events that were politically obligatory.

Al Gore was far more left wing than Bill Clinton. Al Gore resented Bill Clinton and thought he was too "centrist." He despised all Republicans. His hatred was bitter and this was long before he announced for the Presidency. This hatred was something that he and Hillary had in common. They often said as much, even in the presence of their security detail. Neither of them trusted Bill Clinton and, the Secret Service opined, neither of them even liked Bill Clinton.

Bill Clinton did have some good qualities, whereas Al Gore and Hillary had none, in the view of their security details. Al Gore, like Hillary, was very rude a nd arrogant toward his security detail. He was extremely preciative and would not hesitate to scold them in the presence of their peers for minor details over which they had no control.

Al Gore also looked down on them, as they finally observed and learned with certainty on one occasion. Al got angry at his offspring and pointed at his security detail and said, "Do you want to grow up and be like them?" Word of this insult by the former Vice-President quickly spread and he became as disliked by the Secret Service as Hillary. Most of them prayed Al Gore would not be elected President, and they really did have private celebrations in a few of their homes after President Bush won. This was not necessarily to celebrate President Bush's election, but to celebrate Al Gore's defeat.

WHAT IS: Everyone in the Secret Service wants to be on First Lady Laura Bush's detail. Without exception, they concede that she is perhaps the nicest and most kind person they have ever had the privilege of serving. Where Hillary patently refused to allow her picture to be taken with her security detail, Laura Bush doesn't even have to be asked, she offers. She doesn't just shake their hand and say, "Thank you."

Very often, she will give members of her detail a kindhearted hug to express her appreciation. There is nothing false about her. This is her genuine nature. Her security detail considers her to be a "breath of fresh air." They joke that comparing Laura Bush with Hillary Clinton is like comparing "Mother Teresa" with the "Wicked Witch of the North." Likewise, the Secret Service considers

President Bush to be a gem of a man to work for. He always treats them with genuine respect and he always trusts and listens to their expert advice. They really l ike the Crawford, Texas detail. Every time the president goes to Crawford he has a Bar-B-Q for his security detail and he helps serve their meals. He sits with them, eats with them, and talks with them. He knows each of them by their first name, and calls them by their first name as a show of affection. He always asks about their family, the names of which he always remembers.

They believe that he is deeply and genuinely appreciative of their service. They could not like, love, or respect anyone more than President Bush. Most of them did not know they would feel this way, until they had an opportunity to work for him and learn that his manner was genuine and consistent. It has never changed since he began his Presidency. He always treats them with the utmost respect, kindness, and compassion.

Please pass this on. It is important for Americans to have a true inside understanding of their President.

Thank you, dear ZinLA, for bringing us this! It rings very, very true.

Professional protectors have a keen eye for detail and can fit the pieces of a puzzle together quite well. And they can add the 2+2's of human thought accurately, after all it's what they do for a living!
I trust their analysis over those who wear the suits.
Good morning, G*D bless and Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there!

You know, in all of the inane, silly, inaccurate and just dumb things I have read on this blog. This by far is the funniest. I gotta hand it to you guys. You should link from the Onion, really.

I love this blog. Thanks for starting my Fathers Day with a smile.

p.s. Where is the link?

LES--Sorry, this is one for which I don't have the usual link--I decided to post it anyway. There is, at least, the man's name...

You're free to refute it with any evidence you have. Many similar things others have said about the Bushs and the Clintons...

I love this blog too, and one of the reasons is that you post here, Les. You have inspired me to suggest a contest called the "Life Under a Rock" contest. It'd be given to the most politically unawares person who posts here every month. The fact that you'd win nearly every month would not diminish my laughter in holding up your clueless rants to the light of cold, clear logic and the mountains of evidence.

You don't realize it, but you personify the stereotype of the unthinking Democratic party shill, who has jettisoned all manner of reason, all knowledge of history, and blanches at everything not sealed with the party stamp of approval. Despite the insular and mentally anorexic nature of such a person, paradoxically they feel the desire to post on blogs and expose their deficiencies to as many people as possible. This fulfills their need to play the hopeless, glory-seeking martyr for a wholly secular cause (just so they don't have to bother with that tricky eternity thing). It fulfills a kind of masochism in the poster, whose actions are a pale shadow of his larger goal -- to scuttle the ship that they are in; self-hate and nation-hate are intertwined in the putrid psychology of the left.

Wow, Russet, your comic book analysis is truly laughable.

Its why I keep coming back.

Bwhaahhhaahhaaahahhaaaa.
I LOVE this place!

P.S. As a black man I find your avatar disgusting. You are a small, silly man (woman)

By the way, did you even bother to read the pablum you just posted? Just wondering because it makes no sense whatsoever.
You are a silly, laughable poster. And your blog sucks also. I remember people like you in graduate school that think that if you can string enough polysyllabic words together folks might think you have a clear and cogent thought.
NOT!

Keep up the good work rascist shadows.

I made it up, Les....can't you tell? (am kidding here) Only about a hundred people who've worked for the Clintons have said pretty much this exact stuff but YOU don't think it's true!? Talk about making me smile! I appreciate the laugh today...

The man who wrote it flew them, his name was at the top of the piece...clear as day. Check it out.

Don't be embarassed....everyone's known these things for years. I"m sure you think they're the happy little couple, and all the reams of books on them confirm that (by libs and conservatives)..RIGHT? NO??? OH, LES!! But I KNOW YOU KNOW EVERYTHING BETTER!


really, Les.........it IS laughable, you've got to admit it. You can see the Bushes, who've worked through many things and have stayed together without the slightest bit of gossip, and it must hurt. I understand that. I"d not want to be a liberal, either...awful to be represented by people like this.

But, seriously..it's all been said many times. no link. just the truth. Believe it or not, sometimes things are true which DON"T make it into the NYSlimes! YES!!!

sorry to be mean, but REALLY, les...what more do you need to know about the Clintons without understanding they're real miserable people all around?

It's pretty obvious who has respect for the office of the President of United States. It should be an honor to protect the people in the White House. Yet, some people - Dems - have made it a distasteful chore.

Les...Donal doesn't make up this stuff! She almost always refers each article to a source or provides a name. She doesn't make up the inane, hate-filled, comments from DU. DUers do that all by themselves.

Just a stupid question Z;
His first sentence says he flew 4 missions for Johnson and Nixon. Then he goes on to talk about flying for every president since Kennedy.
Oh, for a real laugh, google this story.

Comic book analysis, Les? This from a man who turns around and instantly draws stereotypical and ignorant conclusions about an entire person based on one avatar? And an avatar that you don't really understand, at that?

I'll let you in on a little secret. One function of the avatar is to draw ignorant and snap-judgment liberals out into the open, so most Southerners and all conservatives can laugh at them. It's worked yet again. However, I have a feeling you aren't done exposing your own ignorance.

Now if you didn't understand what I wrote, are you trying to tell me that you're not very smart? Or that you couldn't be bothered to analyze what I said? By your own words, then you are either lazy or stupid. Which is it?

I doubt that you win many arguments based upon your tactics of debate, which seem to consist of immolating yourself in front of hostile audiences. It must work wonders on liberal women, though.

Finally, you really should see about removing that fork from your butt. That's right, Les. You're done.

Oh, racist shadows. You just fried me again...I am sooo swooning from your incisive analysis.

By the way, you have yet to state one single fact, link or anything on this website or your lame vanity site where you love to hear yourself talk.

Put down that thesaurus and pick up a book, or better yet, read the newspapers. Your idea of political analysis is to throw a few lame accusations or as most regressives do when faced with insurmountable evidence to their backwards way of thinking, just attack the messenger. Go back to the 1930's where you can strut around in your pointy white hat.

And back to the original post.

This is how this article is prefaced in other posts:

"i got this email from an aunt of mine today, just wanted to pass it along. sorry if its too long, but please take time to read it. thanks."

Sounds like the old "I got this from a lawyer friend of mine who really knows the law and if you pass this forward Bill Gates will send you $23,000....My cousins best friends aunts brother got a check for $18,000"


Bwhahaaahaaahahhhaaaahahhhaaaa

Man I love this stuff!

LES--Actually, considering that dinner is 'done', this hostess has nothing left to do but pour coffee and pass nuts; you have yet to state a single fact in refutation of ANY of it.

A single fact to what? Disprove that Hillary Clinton didnt say the things in this tripe? You cant prove a negative.
Just google the pilot. All you get is the exact word-for-word postings you have here. No other mention of this guy anywhere on the internets! Even Scarborough took down the post!!!!
