    You're just upset because yet once again your Messiah is shown to be the incompetent boob the people that didn't vote for him knew him to be.

    Here's the difference:

    A member of the press corps doesn't have the opportunity to shake hands with the Prez.



    The closest analogy to the press corps incident would be the comical Shoe Thrower of Iraq. And no president has ever been killed by a size twelve.

    The Messiah could have been stabbed with a glass knife before dinner, the intruders were that close. One lightning slash at the carotid and chances are high we'd be discussing President Plagiarizer's nominee for VP now.

    ...
    Defending the decision not to let Rogers testify, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs cited the separation of powers and a history of White House staff not testifying before Congress. Gibbs also said the first family is "quite pleased" with Rogers' performance.

    In the past, at state dinners and similar events, a member of the White House social office or other White House staff stood with the Secret Service as guests entered. No one from the White House was with the Secret Service on Nov. 24. There were no plans for a White House staff member to be there, and it was the Secret Service's responsibility to make sure the guests were on the approved list.

    "After reviewing our actions, it is clear that the White House did not do everything we could have done to assist the United States Secret Service in ensuring that only invited guests enter the complex," White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina wrote in a memo Wednesday to the staff about the new procedures.
