Bush Gets Mugged In Albania
By: Nicole Belle on Tuesday, June 12th, 2007 at 3:00 PM - PDT The punditry has been enjoying vicariously Bush’s “rock star” visit to Albania.

But something about this video has bugged me from the beginning

Why aren’t the Secret Service protecting the President? Why are they allowing the Albanians to get so close and actually ruffle the man’s hair?

And then a commenter (forgive me, your screenname is a little difficult to recreate in a post) pointed out why the Secret Service really wasn’t protecting the President. If you look at the :50 second mark, there’s a watch with a black wristband…at the 1:00 minute mark…it’s no longer there. That’s right, those adoring Albanians–who have actually issued postage with Bush’s face–were mugging the President. Pretty ballsy, if you ask me. After all, look at what he did to a country that actually posed no threat.

thank you!
