TMZ Shouldn't Get this Close

11/4/2008 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In yet another lapse of security, the Secret Service allowed our camera guy to get thiiiiiiiis close to Barack Obama.
Barack Obama: Clic to watch
First it was John McCain, then Hillary Clinton. It shouldn't be this easy, right?

Maybe you shouldn't advertise how easy it was to get so close to him--others with more harmful motives may be encouraged! I think you should just leave the candidates alone anyway, they have a job to do, it's not like they're just celebrities walking their dogs or something.

I voted for the superior, trusthworthy non-socialist candidate this morning, John McCain.

This does NOT look like a recent picture of Obama. His hair looks much longer and face looks younger. I think TMZ is trying to trick us.

If you are "scared" of Senator Obama, you need to check deep within your heart for guidance!

If the majority of Americans vote for Obama today, I hope his astute campaign managers are able to help select his Secret Service detail as I don't trust (all) of those who serve in the capacity of Secret Service in his particular case. Shockingly, there remains a significant percentage of ignorant, bigotted, and hateful whites in this country and he, therefore, needs the most loyal servants available to protect him during a White House term.

It is time for Americans to wake-up and understand that it is only (collectively) that we can succeed as a nation. Most of us have suffered for eight years and it is time to end the suffering and put the Psychiatrists out of business!!!!!

bite me    

well I did my civic duty and voted for the man I know about, and the one I trust my money, family's safety and well being of this great country of ours.

I know nothing about Obama, and refuse to let someone I don't know control MY government. I am hoping that after all the votes are counted, the media starts to dig deeper into this man, who has moved to different countries, changed his name, changes alliances, ect, so if he runs again, we (the American people) can truly know who and what we are voting on. I want to know all about the person I am voting for, not just what comes out of their mouth.

May experience and common sense guide us today, with the help of our Lord.

GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!!!!!!!!!!

ps: My condolences to the OBama/Durham family in this sorrowful time

certain tmz camera men seems to get alot of stupid videos posted and they sounds moronic and pretty annoying in many of them. Secret service should have flattened him.

I don't think anyone should judge the USSS given how difficult their job is and how they place their lives on the line everyday. For some reason TMZ is always so negative about the USSS and never talks about how preventive the agency is and how often they do intervene when needed. There is a reason the camera man was able to get so close (he is obviouly not a threat) so I wouldn't judge that on any level or make it out like the USSS is not doing their jobs.

it may have been smarter to keep that little bit of info to yourself, if you are not trying to plant any seeds.
