I didn’t write that.
I do not believe that the Secret Service agents are some feelingless, humanless drones without human feelings.
I do believe that they would have had more respect towards Mr. Woods and his son lying in the casket and after hearing what Joe Biden said would have just stood by and watched.
I bet the Secret Service agents after hearing what Joe Biden said privately said " What a a$$hole " and what a disrespectful thing to say to a loved one who's son was laying in a casket who gave his life for this country.... Call it what you may, a momentary lapse in doing their job.
Sorry, but I respectively disagree with you. Of course they're not feeling-less, but Secret Service agents assigned to this sort of duty are willing to "take a bullet" for their charges. I have no doubt that they would have said "what an a$$hole" Biden was after the fact, but I also have no doubt that they would have done their job. They're among the ultimate professionals. I have no doubt they would have protected their charge, no matter what their personal feelings.
I think the other big storm is Benghazi and Obama will be caught out in the wind and rain.
He’s going to have to make a lot of noise the last 10 days to distract the electorate and keep independents with him, for ever how many that is.
If you want to get more military insight into Benghazi and other military issues, I recommend the radio show on KFI LA AM 640 8-10 Sat and Sunday nights, Brian Suits, A Dark Secret Place.
That is so true about ANY government office I have encountered over the years.
And when they ‘retire’ after 20 years and get out in the real workd to double-dip for the rest of their lives they are usually USELESS and UN-TRAINABLE
We had one administrator we hired based on her long-term admin post in the government. She turned out to be MORE THAN USELESS- she was an actual IMPEDIMENT to progress.
She would show up and walk around all day like a ‘survivor’ contestent try to schmooze others into forming ‘an alliance’ with her... She thought that is what you did all day at work.
Morale was so low and actuall work impeded while everyone tried to sort out who was supposed to do what while not stepping on her toes.
In the end they had to fire her because nearly nothing got done the entire year she was there. And she acted like it didnt matter because more funding and a bigger budget would be coming soon (like it does every year in government) and she would just hire some of her freinds to have more coalition ‘on her side’.
When they slashed her budget she threatend to SUE THEM and when she was fired she actually did file suit for ‘discrimniation’ (of course it is racist to fire a black person for anything)
Fortunately in real life a paper trail of incompetance goet her case tossed out of court immediately and she was counter-sued for damages and LOST!!!
Steyn is so good that whenever I listen to him on the radio or read his articles I feel smarter for having done so.
Didn't say you did. Just thought you'd be interested.
