Obama Media Pushes Law Enforcement as Embarrassment
Do we really need Obama and his slavish press going after the Secret Service now?
In less than a month, the same guy who loves Occupy and hates the Tea Party has weighed in on the Supreme Court, Congress, local law enforcement in Sanford, Florida and now the Secret Service and the military.
The latest Secret Service/hooker distraction not only diverts our attention away from the myriad failures of the Obama administration it feeds right into Obama's core belief that the United States needs a fundamental transformation.
The 11 Secret Service agents involved in boozing all night and paying for sex during the Summit of the Americas in Colombia were quickly placed on administrative leave and sent packing. Obama promised a "thorough and rigorous" investigation.
Seems if the particular scandal has legs and can potentially make America look bad Obama is all over it.
My attitude with respect to the Secret Service personnel is no different than I expect out of my delegation sitting here. We're representing the people of the United States. And that means that we conduct ourselves with the utmost dignity and probity...What's been reported doesn't match up with those standards.
Interesting choice of words, Mr. President. "What's been reported doesn't match up with those standards?"
It begs the question who is reporting? Who are the real whores selling themselves to push Obama's disdain for American law enforcement? Here's a sampling of a lap dancing press pushing the President's propaganda. Well, this is "embarrassing":
From Charlotte Observer: An embarrassing scandal involving prostitutes and Secret Service agents deepened Saturday as 11 agents were placed on leave.
From USA Today: The U.S. Secret Service's embarrassing sex scandal that unfolded in the last few days in Cartagena, Colombia, took place in an historic, high-end hotel that's considered a national treasure by the Colombian government.
From Bloomberg: The agents' behavior was an embarrassment for Obama, obscuring what should have been an opportunity to trumpet a free-trade agreement with host Colombia and expanding trade to fast-growing economies.
From Deseret News: Put together, the allegations were an embarrassment for an American president on foreign soil and threatened to upend White House efforts to keep his trip focused.
From San Francisco Chronicle: The agents' behavior was an embarrassment for Obama, obscuring what should have been an opportunity to trumpet a free-trade agreement with host Colombia and expanding trade to fast-growing economies like Brazil.
Ronald Kessler, an author specializing in the president's protectors, gave the story early Saturday to the Washington Post and says the Secret Service Agency routinely looks the other way when its agents act embarrassingly inappropriate. He suggests the agency has "deep-rooted" issues when he states "What the agency needs is an outside director who can come in, clean house, change the standards."
Kessler wrote a book in 2010 about the mismanagement of the Secret Service and hinted its director Mark Sullivan should go.
Apparently Obama disagrees with Kessler since Sullivan is still around. How fortuitous and distracting then that an agent refused to pony up $47 to a working girl and exposed this hidden depravity. "Shudder, shudder."
