Santorum is so quick to say lead by example... so I responded - LEAD BY EXAMPLE - Pay for your own security like Dr. Paul

I read this: On Tuesday, Senator Rick Santorum spoke on Glen Beck’s radio show about how he disapproved of Barack and Michelle Obama’s decision as parents. The Senator was incredulous, as many regions in Mexico have been put on the State Department warning list issued to American tourists. “What I would say is that the president’s actions should reflect what the administration is saying,” the Senator told Mr. Beck, according to ABC. “If the administration is saying that it’s not safe to have people down there, then just because you can send 25 secret service agents doesn’t mean you should do it. You should set an example. I think that’s what presidents do.”

Just made my blood boil - the remark about leading by example. There were no comments yet on the page but I hope you guys join me in the remarks. I answered:

So if Presidents should lead by example how come Ron Paul pays for his own security and Santorum and Romney and Gingrich make the tax payers pay for theirs?

When asked on Jay Leno the other night Dr. Paul said that yes he could have the secret service supply his security but he is a private citizen and should pay for his own instead of taking from the tax payers.

It is BAD enough that our president wastes the resources of the US to send 25 secret service folks to Mexico so Milia can have a school trip to a place most Americans could not afford and would not send their child, but now I find out that 3 of the 4 republican candidates are already finding ways to live off of the taxpayers of the US!

Pay for your own security Santorum, Gingrich and Romney - every one of you guys take corporate sponsorship - unlike Dr. Paul who takes no corporate sponsorship, and yet he does not USE MY MONEY for his security.

IF THIS IS THE EXAMPLE YOU SHOW, stay out of the white house - we are far enough in debt already. If this is leading by example I choose Dr. Ron Paul! He is ONLY ONE who is or ever has lead by example.
