    Why don't they use their CAC's to secure access to the doors?

    right? Geez I only have a small little house and to get in you have to get through the security fence, get around my boxer, pick the locks or break a window, and then face one of us with our 9mm. I guess I can easily say I can provide more security than the ss.

    I'm wondering if the SS dropping the ball is really because of bad leadership or because this President is not well liked..... it certainly makes one think doesn't it? And of course if there is some tension between this administration and SS - it's because the SS is obviously racist.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    This insider scenario is a possibility, but I don't think it has anything to do with that. Its probably more a case of complacency. I am not sure how often those guys are being rotated, but perhaps this incident should cause them to take a really good look at themselves.

    Re: Secret Service head in hot seat after White House breach details revealed

    i heard some outraged Republican congressman expressing outrage on the radio this morning. i'm more of the opinion that some idiot just bum rushed the gates. i save my outrage for **** like a war that lasts 14 ****ing years with no end in site while our roads are falling apart and the highway trust fund is nearly insolvent. then instead of fixing that, we extend one war and sign up for a new one.

    that pisses me off a lot more than some moron playing hop the fence.

    Dude you are unbelievable

    Just because you don't like the President doesn't mean everyone hates him. But regardless, They made a oath to protect the President regardless of his politcal lean !!!!!! I don't give two s***s if it is Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Obama, or if it was President Romney. They have a duty to protect the president.

    Geez this partisan crap has gotten out of control

    But that's not the topic. I'm more mad about neverending spending by politicians to garner votes.
