A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
The only screwup the SS made was lying about the incident initially, which is a major problem and grounds for termination.
The SS should've just told the truth from the beginning, and said that additional security measures were unnecessary given the events that transpired.
The quality of the Secret Service doesn't seem to be what it once was. I remember that the agents around President Reagan did a superb job when Hinckley shot him--they very quickly shielded Reagan and neutralized Hinckley, and it very well may have saved Reagan's life. Or maybe the fact they genuinely liked and respected Ronald Reagan made them especially sharp about protecting him.
Where is there any evidence that "right wing nuts" are responsible for her resignation?
By reading the attached article one quickly learns that one, there were several lapses, one in which a man with a record for assault got into an elevator with the president.....
I don't see anywhere that she was pressured, if you do have evidence "right wing nuts' forced this resignation, please post it as we would all like to see who it is that has that much power in Washington right now...likely the next president if its true.
Why do I not think we will ever see said links....?

Congress doesn't give rat's ass about WH security; if it did, it would certainly allocate more funds for the SS to ensure that its director gets paid significantly more than a measly $150K. That's a joke for someone in charge of security detail for a major head of state/VIP. Oracle Corp. shells out $1.5 million/yr. for Ellison's security detail at his personal residence alone, so one should expect a higher salary for someone in charge of the President's security.
The so-called "pressure" from Congress isn't actual intimidation; it's just mindless political fluff put out by these Congresscritters to score cheap political points, and what's pathetic is the right wing masses that buy into it.
Wonder if it's occurred to anyone yet that if the intruder actually had malicious intent, he would've used his knife to hurt someone since had clearly had the opportunity to do so.
