Obama: "I'll be angry" if Secret Service scandal is true
cbs ^ | 4/15/2012 | ap

Posted on 04/15/2012 6:12:46 PM PDT by tobyhill

President Barack Obama, speaking for the first time about allegations that Secret Service agents hired prostitutes, said Sunday that "of course I'll be angry" if those accusations are proven true by an investigation.

Obama said the agents represent the United States and are supposed to conduct themselves with the highest levels of dignity anywhere in the world. "Obviously, what's been reported doesn't match up to those standards," Obama said in a news conference wrapping his appearance at a Latin America summit.

The president never directly mentioned that the specific accusations, confirmed by media outlets, that agents were cavorting with prostitutes before the president arrived in Colombia.

The Secret Service sent 11 agents home and placed them on leave for misconduct as the agency reviews what happened.

He’ll be even more angry when we find out what this scandal
is covering up. Nothing is what it seems with this traitor.

Fire them all and hire boys who would like his sons would look. If he had any. See if they can do any better.

I'd love to see that.

So what if he is angry. What the hell is he going to do? Write a mean mean letter to the head of the Secret Service?
Wait or is he thinking of blaming President Bush?

I guess those “secret services” didn’t stay secret. Perhaps Obama “would be angry” if the charges were true because he wasn’t invited to get in on the action.

He’s just angry that the SS guys didn’t invite him. Going home to Moo-chelle every night just makes any straight guy turn homo.

Why does 0bama not investigate the gay bath house where he and Rahm were supposed to be members? Google it. Seema 0bama liked older white men to do the oral on him. I suspect it fed his disgust with white people.

Did he (King Amabo) wait for the investigation in the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case?

Obama said the agents represent the United States and are supposed to conduct themselves with the highest levels of dignity anywhere in the world.

The President also represents the United States and is supposed to conduct himself with the highest levels of dignity anywhere in the world.

So why has Obama groveled and falsely criticized and apologized for America in front of foreign audiences, why has he bowed down to foreign leaders, and why has he told the Russian President with a wink and a nod that when he is re-elected he will be able to be more "flexible" in selling out the country's interests?

Ah, yes, the good old days. I remember meeting John Dean's wife (before she was his wife) at a Secret Service party.

They had the apartments above mine so I was always invited to their parties ~ not bad parties ~ light on the booze but there were these women from State Department, and I suppose modeling agencies, and wherever ~ and they were "friendly".

This sounds like just another Secret Service party ~ but rather impromptu. Somebody forgot to pay the girls ahead of time!

it would seem that the Sevret Service is demoralized about having to protect Obozo, the Wookie its mother.

I simply cannot imagine taking a bullet for him as a requirement of the job....obviously neither can they.

Actual headline: Obama calls for ‘rigorous’ probe into prostitution allegations (a rigorous probe is what got us into this mess).

If true, this isn’t about him. It’s about the decline of America’s stature in the world under his ‘leadership’.

Yeah - this whole thing seems like a media-driven firestorm to show Obama acting “tough” and to distract everyone from Obama’s miserable record. I smell a rat on this story - not saying the Secret Service guys are innocent, just that it seems so convenient that for some reason THIS becomes a big story right now.

Well hell yes he’ll be angry if it is true ... sorry bas!ards started the party before he got there and consumed most of the booze, coke and prositutes. And worse, Moo now knows why the Food Stamp President sends her off on vacation somewhere with the first brats while he takes those “official” hardworking trips “abroad” without them.

The only reason he'll be upset is because like the GSA they got caught. I wonder if Obama has ever joined in on some of the action? I can't believe he never knew what was happening and I'm also sure it's not the first time.

There was a time not so long ago, when a potential national embarrassment would be quietly handled with only minimal media play.

This blasted right to the lead story on the national network news immediately.

The story is not the story, it’s misdirection and discrediting a very respected group in the Secret Service.

He wants his guys in there, for whatever reason, paranoia, who knows.

What we’re being told rings false.

If these agents aren’t fired and their names released, a growing suspicion on my part will be confirmed: all or substantially all of them are of a certain complexion, and Obama and Holder will move mountains to make sure the public doesn’t get wind of this.

Just a hunch; I’d love to be wrong.

Colombia is a country that is a major source country for trafficked women. organized crime is running everything and it’s a big problem. Colombia is a big destination for foreign child sex tourists.

hooking up with “prostitues” in these poor countries there is a pretty high chance you are actually committing rape.

Didn't JFK "have" a bunch of prostitutes while in office?

Didn't Bill Clinton use the authority of his office to "have" women?

Did John Edwards re-direct some campaign funds toward covering-up an affair with his gf (while his wife had a terminal illness)?

I'm not excusing the SS or military allegations, however it would seem that if true, in an apparent weak moment the lads were merely behaving like Democrats, n'est ce pas?

Obama: "I'll be angry" if Secret Service scandal is true...who'll be angry are some of those agents whose reputations and careers have been tainted for something that's been going on for decades - who knows what kinds of stories on things some of them have seen might start to leak in retribution.....
