    Not pictured is the new wrought iron fence added to the existing brick wall in the last month. USSS can handle it, he and his family will be fine.

    Especially since he signed himself up to get Secret Service protection for life.

    I wonder what the detail consists of for a former President?

    It can't be more than 6.

    Doesn't it go down the longer you are out of office. I'm sure Obama will have a high detail for the first year. Especially since he is staying in DC.

    Is there a former president alive who hasn't signed up for SS protection for life?

    I believe so.
    Most likely correct. The house is ~1/2 mile from the VP's residence and off of Embassy Row, so plenty of law enforcement around.

    It's almost as if he earned $5+ million in cash, plus $2+ million in investments through his book advances and royalties prior to 2008, and that money's been sitting in investment accounts for 8+ years. Additionally, former presidents receive a salary of $200,000+ per year until the day they die.

    Gasp, or it could be... a conspiracy. ibook409 is the only one who sees the truth!

    Obama's publicly released his tax returns every year. You can look this information up rather than Hmmm...ing.

    Nope. I think Nixon declined it sometime in the 80's.

    Not to mention his future earnings potential. But let's keep up the hate! It's healthy.

    Good to know. But he did sign on for at least a while. Lord knows I would, and I bet you would too.

    Charming house. Beautiful architecture.

    Obama I believe will have a very secure financial future. Book deals, movies, speaking engagements, consulting, etc. He will do very well. Regardless of your political opinions he's America's first Black president which makes him an important part of history. And he will likely capitalize on that fact.
