    I am starting to wonder if the underlying reason for the dismal performance, nay the utter and complete incompetence by the Secret Service staff is not a clandestine desire for the President to be assassinated. Well, the republicans couldn’t get rid of him through the ballot box, maybe through the incompetence of the Secret Service they will succeed. I certainly hope not, and it would be a truly dark day for America.

    I don’t care if President Obama is hated by the Secret Service staff, if that is their feeling then they need to either ask for reassignment or resign. And if they don’t and then fail to do their jobs, they need to lose their jobs. Every single person on duty when the White House is breached who failed to take action and DO THEIR JOB needs to be summarily terminated form their position. But don’t cry for them, I’m sure there is a private security contractor willing to hire them
    .

    And I have deep suspicions of why Issa is so interested in investigating this issue. He certainly has no care regarding the protection and safety of this President.

    He’s lampooning the fact that it was revealed the White House intruder got much farther than the Secret Service originally admitted to. One would think that you’d be all over that with some sort of anti-Obama snide remark.

    I did not see where the button room was in the CNN mockup or the Google drive through.

    That would be a neat trick considering Obama appointed the Attorney General and the head of the Secret Service. Can we all say Paranoia everybody, I knew you could.

    Speaking as a Republican I can say that I see no evidence of this. The assassination of the President would be a blow to our National Security and might even damage our trust in our political system. No reasonable Republican would consider that a benefit, even before considering that it would place a man as unqualified for the presidency as Joe Biden to the office.
    -
    I would guess that most Republicans, like myself, do not have much against the President on a personal level. We want to see his ideas discredited and his party defeated, but the idea of committing violence against his person is a thought that doesn’t even occur to me, or appear in anything I have heard or read (except from those on the left worried about the possibility).

    It appears Tom is aware of what’s in the “basement portions” of that structure at 1600 Pennsylvannia Ave. While it appeared protocols failed, what about when Reagan was shot, Ford shot at, twice, and further “goodies”, but when Republicans appointed the AG and Secret Service dudes (later converted to Civil Service, so they stayed on after they left) it was “no problemo”, and definitely NOT a Republican administrations’ fault, right?


    BTW in the guy in the elevator story, the guy was a CONTRACTOR SECURITY OFFICER, by a private company, and had a criminal record, like most of Reagan’s staff after Iran-Contra, but did he also get a court reversal like they did from Reagan appointed judges?


    This whole bit isn’t an attack on Secret Service, rather, a direct attack on the Administration, just like every other “newsworthy” story at this near election period.

    Not just be fired, but how about dereliction of duty and maybe some prison time? Definitely many need to be fired and have a black mark on their records.
