    Then the majority of people are getting what they want, right, seeing how O hasn't yet been harmed by any of the WH intruders?

    Hello?!

    No, I have a problem w/these idiot reps who too easily trade basic freedoms for security, and the brain-dead idiots who keep electing them.

    And you want them to be just like the Nazis.

    And it appears based on the results that they're doing that job .

    I have been wondering about this agent who got steamrollered at the front door.

    There are some jobs that women are just not suited for, including that category of job where a man might need to be physically restrained one-on-one.

    Many years ago I read of a dangerous, violent criminal who overpowered his one guard, a women, and was at large for some time. I think it happened in Atlanta- maybe a member from there can tell us more.

    I agree.

    If equality is what they truely want, then they should have to meet the same standards of any male agent that came before them.

    And that goes for Police officers and Firefighters.

    Seconded.

    And scatter a few more teams of two throughout the WH grounds.

    And make them a permanent fixture and addition to the secret service, even after the secret service gets its desperately needed overhaul.

    You assertion was that he didn't harm anyone and I pointed out that he didn't even get a TSA search. The rest of your post is your own nonsense.

    Bush 2 famously didn't do that on at least a couple of occasions.

    WRONG. The results are the only relevant performance metric when they're exemplary.

    And the results are exemplary, since the SS has kept all Presidents perfectly safe in the last 30 years.

    No sensible employer questions the actions of an employee that delivers perfect results consistently. To do otherwise amounts to unnecessary micromanagement.

    He had no choice after invading Iraq. To leave prematurely would be an admission of incompetence, which would also have been politically unpopular.

    So bush was backed into a corner--damned if he did and damned if he didn't.
