The Secret Service really does watch out for its protectees like a parent — particularly when it comes to the President.

David Nakamura of the Washington Post reports that President Obama wanted to sneak off and make a surprise visit Tuesday evening to the Duck City Bistro in Davenport, Ia., to tip a beer with the White House press corps.

But Nakamura reports that the Secret Service put the kabosh on that plan.

Obama said that he was stymied when Secret Service found out about the plan, Nakamura reported.
