The Secret Service also has code names for the President:

Secret Service code name

“The United States Secret Service uses code names for U.S. presidents, first ladies, and other prominent persons and locations.[1] The use of such names was originally for security purposes and dates to a time when sensitive electronic communications were not routinely encrypted; today, the names simply serve for purposes of brevity, clarity, and tradition.[2][3] The Secret Service does not choose these names, however. The White House Communications Agency assigns these names.[4] WHCA was originally created as the White House Signal Detachment under Franklin Roosevelt.

The WHCA, an agency of the White House Military Office, is headquartered at Anacostia Navy Yard and consists of six staff elements and seven organizational units. WHCA also has supporting detachments in Washington, D.C. and various locations throughout the United States of America.

According to established protocol, ‘good’ codewords are unambiguous words that can be easily pronounced and readily understood by those who transmit and receive voice messages by radio or telephone regardless of their native language. Traditionally, all family members’ code names start with the same letter.[5]

The code names change over time for security purposes, but are often publicly known. For security, codenames are generally picked from a list of such ‘good’ words, but avoiding the use of common words which could likely be intended to mean its normal definition. …”

Barack Obama’s new Secret Service code name: Renegade


“…President-elect Barack Obama — aka Renegade — had a say in choosing the code name that his protectors use when they’re whispering into those microphones in their sleeves. He was given his choice of several names starting with R.

And in keeping with the tradition of having all family members’ code names start with the same letter, future first lady Michelle Obama is Renaissance, and daughters Sasha and Malia are known as Rosebud and Radiance, respectively.

As for President George W. Bush and wife, Laura, whatever else their new lives hold for them, they can take their alternate identities as Trailblazer and Tempo with them. They’re still entitled to Secret Service protection.

Lists of possible code names for those who receive Secret Service protection are drawn up by the White House Communications Agency, a branch of the military that serves the White House and Secret Service. …”,secret-service-barack-obama111308.article

Joe Biden’s Secret Service code name; Plus: What Obama’s should have been

By Michelle Malkin

“…It’s “Celtic.”

“Hokum,” “Malarkey,” and “Home Depot” were already taken, I guess.

Go ahead and offer your own suggestions: Name that loon!


The Obamas all got “R” names:

Barack – Renegade
Michelle – Renaissance
Malia and Sasha – Radiance and Rosebud

Barack’s real code name, of course, is “Redistributor.” …”

Thoughts on the Press Conference   [Mark Hemingway]

The Democratic Great Communicator Isn’t Always: As good as he is delivering a speech, Obama is not a good extemporaneous speaker. It’s been rare in his political career you get to see him doing both back to back and the contrast is stunning. The conference was, frankly, boring and long-winded. His answer to the first question was an unforgivably meandering and pointless 10 minutes.

Names Please: The President kept referencing people that believe in “doing nothing” as a response to the economic crisis. And this “tax cuts alone can’t solve our economic problems” business is nonsense. Congressional Republicans are far from closed to the idea of government spending as a fiscal stimulus — it’s the size and scope of the current bill they disagree with. Framing things as if the debate is doing something versus doing nothing is calculated political prestidigitation.
