Are you saying that...
a) the first family should not accept any private engagements during their tenure?
b) the first family should not be protected when attending private engagements?
c) the protection was excessive?
d) the first family should only attend private functions with the extremely rich who can pay for their protection?
e) only a very rich person who can afford to pay for such protection should run for pressident?
f) this is the first family to receive such protection?
g) this first family has cost the tax payers far more in real terms than previous first families? If so, I'd like to see the statistics for all first families converted to current dollars.
