    Bucking a trend, President Obama stated he wouldn't pronounce judgement til the investigation was complete. It is unknown at this time if any of the accused agents look like they would have been his sons.

    I figure the supervisors of these agents, probably weren't dallying with prostitutes, but since they were the supervisors, their careers are on the line as well. Then again, if the guy is off duty, how is the supervisor supposed to know what his agents are doing on their own free time?

    Guess they didn't take the annual Trafficing in Human Beings course that is forced down the throats of all Navy civilians and military. If they had, they wouldn't have been caught in such a compromising position.

    Actually...if they had just paid the prostitutes in a timely manner it wouldnt have come to light.

    i dont condone it and can honestly say I never engaged in it...but seriously...the amount of hay being made over this is just plain goofy. Its not like this stuff hasnt gone on forever. Plain fact of the matter is that most of the politicians feigning outrage and calling for congressional hearings are doing this as a dig at Obama

    I hate it when a secret service agent involved with a prostitute fell "short". Ouch! That is a scandal.

    Not by me. I am always respectful. He is the Welfare president. He is the Food Stamp president. He is the one term president. He is the flexible president. And he is the Marxist president. No matter what he is always the president.

    There are DEFINITELY grounds for discipline. It is called Conduct Unbecoming and it applies to *ALL* Federal Special Agents, which is exactly what the Secret Service falls under. They are a very special category of Federal Agent, and they do not have to break a law to be disciplined by their Director.

    The problem here, is the head of Secret Service himself. He's too lax on protocol and his level of discipline has been called into question on more than one occasion. His attitude (overall) has rubbed off onto those who serve under him, and he needs to go - plain and simple.

    Treasury used to run the op and ever since it was moved under Homeland, there's been leadership and continuity issues. L&C should never become an issue for such operational detail. Time for a serious reassessment and realignment. We are talking about the President, here - any President, Left or Right - it does not matter. There op is to seal the President off from any and all danger - period. Anything, and I mean anything at all, that subjects that op to compromises of any kind whatsoever, must be removed - period.

    There are no questions after - period.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
