President Obama Speaks on Secret Service Scandal

by at . Comments

During a press conference in Cartagena yesterday, standing alongside Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Barack Obama addressed the Secret Service scandal surrounding up to a dozen agents and five members of the U.S. military.

They are accused of soliciting prostitutes in that nation and have been relieved of their posts.

After praising the role of Secret Service employees in general - telling reporters these men and women perform "extraordinary service" on a daily basis - he decreed the reported actions of the men cited in this weekend's report:

"I expect that investigation to be thorough, and I expect it to be rigorous. If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I'll be angry... We are representing the people of the United States, and when we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards."

California Rep. Darrell Issa, who leads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, says he isn't certain whether Congress will hold hearings on the misconduct. But he does find it hard to believe this was an isolated incident.

"It's not about whether the president was in danger this time. It's whether or not you need to make changes so the American people can have confidence in all of their workforce," Issa said on Face the Nation yesterday.

THE GSA ( DEMOCRATS) HAD TO TESTIFY MONDAY BEFORE CONGRESS IN AN ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN THE $823.00.00 OF TAX PAYERS DOLLARS ON A FIELD TRIP IN LAS VEGAS ALONG WITH POSSIBLE KICKBACKS AND BRIBERY CHARGES. THE ONE ACE IN THE HOLE THEY HAVE IS THAT THIS WILL GO BEFORE THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT " ERIC HOLDER" SO WE CAN BASICALLY CALL THIS MONEY LOST. OBAMA WOULD HAVE KEPT A CLOSER EYE ON THIS BUT HE WAS BUSY BLAMING CONGRESS FOR NOT ALLOWING HIM TO SPEND LIKE A COLLEGE KID WITH A " NO MAX" CREDIT CARD. THEN AGAIN LIFE IS SO MUCH BETTER AS FAR AS OBAMA IS CONCERENED. GAS PRICES CERTAIN TO REACH $ 4.50 by MEMORIAL DAY IS CERTAIN TO PUT FEAR INTO THESE OIL COMPANIES. EVEN THE DEMOCRATS ARE SAYING AN ATTEMPT TO PASS THIS HEALTH CARE WAS A MISTAKE. OBAMAS REPUBLICAN SENATE WOULD NOT EVEN PASS " WARREN BUFFET'S" TAX PROPOSAL.

Maybe someone told him, Piss Off and he was distressed and mixt-up the secrets. He want to keep secret that he KISSED all the guys he love them. He may want to keep secret the fact I have sent to you guys 122 Tornados, so he forgot the secret.
