Janet Napolitano's TSA needs to be stopped. Thuggish Transportation Security Administration screeners are now being deployed to political events, and were spotted patting down senior citizens at a Paul Ryan speech in Florida.
"I counted no less than (6) (transportation security) agents alongside the usual uniformed Secret Service detail-not to be confused with the 'Men In Black' looking agents." Javier Manjarres posted on his blog.
Mitt Romney's running mate this weekend spoke at The Villages, an enormous retirement community in central Florida.
In addition to the Secret Service, and local sheriffs from Sumter County, there were also TSA screeners in attendance. What were they doing there? What does a Paul Ryan speech have to do with transportation security?
During the 2008 campaign, then-candidate Barack Obama stated, "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful" as the United States military. Perhaps the airport screeners are the civilian army he was talking about.
It's awful that Americans are becoming so inured to being patted down by creepy TSA screeners. The agency is becoming omnipresent in society. Isn't the Secret Service enough to protect candidates at political rallies?
