One more thing. Make sure you post on the left wing sites (of which there are many you frequent) who espouse your view in your original post demonizing the right as worse than anything created.In your backhanded compliment, you just can’t help throwing in a dig to the right wingers. Well, you proved the left wing is just as political when you made this issue political.With much thought, I actually have less respect for you because of this.

Why worry about the right wing? You are as guilty as the people you want to reprimand.Just so you know, I am more concerned with security…However, part of me says this is all a sham (and I would say the same of any administration because security is more important than anything else in a situation like this if you take it at face value).But thanks for the compliment, I think.

In fact, I am so impressed with your argument I have copied your whole post and submitted it to several right wing websites that are trying to make hay from this story. I hope it helps them to see the light. I have more respect for you after reading your post, I have to say.

Unfortunately, “stuff” happens and it is concerning because it shows how vulnerable even our elected leaders are (whether we agree with their policy agenda or not).One thing is certain, the security policy in the White House will change, hopefully for the better.BTW, the secret service isn’t interested in whether the president is a liberal or conservative. Their only interest is to protect the president and his family. To make this issue political is actually quite disturbing.

There is simply no comparison.

They succeeded in getting through White House security and managed to shake the hands of the Vice-President. But this episode raises very serious security considerations! al Qaeda and other terrorist groups would try and engineer such gatecrashes and the White House needs to get its act together. A stitch in time saves nine!

Nothing like denigrating the dignity of the Office by pandering to one’s own ego.

Those two are consummate USERS who believe everyone else is here to serve the Greater Glory of Michaela & Tareq. Their manipulative tactics have made White House officials and the Secret Service look like stooges. The Salahi’s simply can’t get over their own fabulousness and felt the time was ripe for us all to know it.
