President Obama’s Unscheduled Forays from White House Testing Nerves of Secret Service

President Obama’s unscheduled forays from the White House are causing some stress among the Secret Service, the Hill reports.

Obama has been slipping from the safety of his office and taking impromptu walks.

“I don’t get a chance to take walks very often,” he told a crowd in New York earlier this year. “Secret Service gets a little stressed. But every once in a while I’m able to sneak off.”

Obama joked about testing the agents’ nerves and recounted an unscheduled walk along the river.

“I got about probably a mile, mile and a half, and then some people started spotting me so that by the time — Secret Service got nervous, and then by the time we got back, there was a big rope line and there was all the fuss,” Obama said.

The Secret Service expressed some concerns.

“Any time the president leaves the White House complex, there are risks involved,” said Secret Service spokesman Ed Donvoan.
