    Now if this administration cannot control the security for the White House, what kind of job are they capable of doing in keeping the nation safe????

    One incident is bad enough, but FOUR people on two different occasions?

    Heads should roll.

    I did not vote for the guy - but he is the POTUS and as such should have the very best security possible. These cases represent a far too indifferent approach to protecting Obama. One must wonder if this indifference is systemic within the entire administration...

    Oh stop it.

    The Secret Service doesn't change hands with each administration.

    Ever read [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Presidents-Secret-Service-Behind-Protect/dp/0307461351/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1262803064&sr=8-1]Amazon.com: In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect (9780307461353): Ronald Kessler: Books[/ame] ?

    It is a legit question.

    We have Homeland Security announcing the "system worked" before the administration backtracks repeatedly from that asinine statement.

    We had the President unwisely declaring the Christmas Day Bomber as some lone radical, before having to backtrack yet again on that.

    And now three incidents of people getting into the White House who should not have been allowed?

    This is not a campaign anymore - these folks need to wake up now. If the Secret Service is part of the problem, then they need to be held accountable - as does Homeland Security, and any other agency that continues to muddle about while putting a nation at risk...

    Homeland Security is a Cabinet office that changes hands with a new administration.

    The Secret Service does not. These people are career officials.

    You cannot expect them to think that out, Emma.
