Obama: Secret Service in scandal were 'knuckleheads'
Politico44 ^ | 4/24/12 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 04/24/2012 4:28:33 PM PDT by ColdOne

"What they were thinking, I don't know. That's why they're not there anymore," he added. Six Secret Service employees left the agency last week, while another five are on leave and one has been cleared of any wrongdoing. A dozen others, all members of the military, are being investigated for misconduct by the Pentagon.

Obama's appearance began with the president and host doing one of Fallon's regular bits, Slow Jamming the News, cracking jokes on student loans. "I'm President Barack Obama, and I, too, want to slow-jam the news,” Obama said as he emerged from behind a curtain.

A background singer described Obama as “the POTUS with the mostest.”

Obama spoke about his all-but-certain general election opponent, Mitt Romney, telling Fallon: "I've met him, but we're not friends. His wife is lovely."

Romney, Obama added, “seems like somebody who cares about his family."

Later on, during the interview portion of the show, Obama told Fallon about embarrassing moments of his presidency. “The worst thing at an official event” was when he and the first lady began walking out of an awards event for human rights activists only to be told to backtrack. "We had to turn around and walk back," he said.

The president also joked about a photo from his college years, where he had bushy hair and was wearing a furry collar. "Notice the afro,” he said to laughs.

Obama just can’t resist making comments before the basic investigation is done. What a classy president. (sarc) I wonder if he realizes the damage he is causing?

I guess he doesn’t find ut embarassing that his admin. has been caught in numerous scandals, and that he is a professional liar. He’s to ignorant and self-acsorbed to care/

Knuckleheads? Well, maybe - let’s wait for the investigation to be finished, shall we?

However, even if they turn out to be “knuckleheads,” at least they won’t be DOG-EATING knuckleheads.

I wonder how many “knucklehead” Secret Service agents NOW want to TAKE A BULLET for the TRAITOR-In-CHIEF?

I’d love to see a mass resignation across the street from the White House. PRICELESS!

The real story is not out yet. This is typical of O when he and his handlers are trying to set the stage; ridicule.

IMO, if this were as we have been told so far, ANY President and handlers would NOT divulge that they have idiots working to protect them. Everything and anything relating to this Columbia trip would be quieted post haste due to "national security matters".

Hey, Barack! You're very good at this comedy thing. Go ahead and QUIT YOUR DAY JOB! I'm not kidding.

The problem I suspect is the Secret Service members do not have respect for Zer0. If they did, they would be taking their jobs seriously enought to avoid covorting with whores. It is a national security issue when they do not take seriously the one in the office.

Pray for our nation.

Knuckleheads, jackasses, and cops acting stupidly... all from the dog-eating mouth of Barry Hussein Obama Soetoro, the great arbiter of human behavior.

I agree. This story was entirely gratuitous. I think it could easily have been hushed up—so there must have been another motive in getting it out. A distraction from something else that we have yet to find out about.

I guess all the problems in the world have been solved so now Barry can go on a comedy show.

all members of the military, are being investigated for misconduct by the Pentagon.

Yeah, I unfairly extracted that snippet. Still, give Barry time, and he'll make it happen.

It is a national security issue when they do not take seriously the one in the office.

That only applies to Presidents that are not a net loss to the country alive. In this case, the agents might be considered patriots.

After reading this thread all I can think of is the main stream media is all set. If something should happen to Obama it will be the secret service’ fault. Prep-spin!
