In a show of respect or just the code, president Obama has extended Secret Service protection to former vice president Dick Cheney.
There appears no end in sight for when Dick Cheney, a rare former vice president with Secret Service protection, will lose his security detail. Whispers has learned that the political battler's Secret Service protection has been extended, though there were no details on the length. We don't know why President Obama OK'd the extension, which must be approved by the commander in chief because former veeps typically don't get any Secret Service security after leaving office. But indications are that the threats against Cheney, who's working on his biography at his homes in Virginia and Maryland, haven't lessened since his term expired.
It seems ol' Dicks's fan base or rather fanatic base is as strong and alive as it was in office.
He sure is lucky that president Obama was kind enough to let him use American's hard earned tax dollars to keep his enemies at bay.
