Sex, cocaine, and the Secret Service, oh my!

April 18, 2012

  Two major scandals broke last week under Barack Obama’s watch: the first being the GSA’s outrageous squandering of taxpayer money on lavish birthday parties, and extravagant trips to Hawaii and Las Vegas, and the second being the reportedly cocaine and booze fueled prostitution scandal within the Secret Service shortly before the president’s visit to Columbia.

  While he can not be held directly responsible for the actions of the GSA or the Secret Service this is still an embarrassing week for the president to say the least. And while he is not directly responsible for these scandals the fact is that these people work for the president and this happened under his watch so he can be held partially responsible for the actions of his employees.

   Holding bosses accountable for the actions of his or her employees happens all the time in the public sector: bosses, who through either their inaction or ignorance, allow his or her employees to get away with doing things that are detrimental to the larger workforce, or the well being of the company, are punished right along with the employees who committed the violations for providing the employees with the environment to carry out the violations in the first place. In essence the boss is punished for a lack of leadership.

  It seems as if the people employed by the GSA and the Secret Service now have the mentality that they can do no wrong because they are entitled to these fringe benefits and they are not used to being called on the carpet for their actions. This mentality had to have come from somewhere, and I can only think that these people did not fear any repercussions from their boss, Barack Obama, so they took advantage of him.

  Because of this Barack Obama enabled these scandals because he provided them with the environment which led to these two  agencies’ indiscretions. If they feared him they would not have taken advantage of him, but they perceived what many of us already knew–Barack Obama is no leader and they sensed he could be taken advantage of, and that is precisely what they did.

    If I thought that I might have to lay down my life for Zero, I might need a drink or two at night :)

    Who do these SS guys think they are anyway, GSA?

      It seems to be one big party if you work under Barack Obama!

        Now Steve, the news (radio) said that no one in the Obama Administration was involved in the fiasco. Boy, I am glad to hear that, they are squeeky clean, we were TOLD that. Great….

    These secret service men fell for the oldest trick in the book! Of course, cocaine was involved there. This is one guaranteed way to get these men to do all this craziness. They were fools and absolutely stupid. When you get a bunch of men together in a topless or prostitute establishment first the drinks start, then cocaine is put in their drinks, then the women start asking for money etc.. This is not some new invention. This is really stupid of them to fall for such tricks! I guess, men will be men! The sad part of this story is that the majority of these men were married and now will be facing DIVORCE! They ruined their careers, marriage and family too! I am really surprised pictures have not been put on Facebook or Twitter! Everything you do nowadays can be recorded! If you are going to cheat and act crazy it will catch up with you sooner or later! This was not the first time these secret service men have committed this type of behavior! The man who pissed off the Colombian women was really an idiot! He should have went directly to the ATM machine and gave her $1000 to shut her up instead of arguing about the price! When you get a Latin women mad you better be ready for the fight! WAKE UP MEN!

      There is no doubt that this isn’t the first time this has happened and you are right; the stupidity of the man who wouldn’t pay is astounding considering what was on the line.

    My word, you’ll never catch Barry drinking-unless it’s a beer summit, snorting blow, engaging prostitutes, He may hope to change and bring ruin to this country economically, culturally, socially and politically, but he would never engage in sensual gratification.

    My word, you’ll never catch Barry engaging in drinking-unless he’s holding a beer summit- snorting blow, engaging prostitutes; although when it was revealed one guy refused to pay I thought…hmmm.., Although he is engaged in hoping to change this country economically, politically, culturally and socially he’s not into sensual gratification,.

      And let’s not forget about Larry Sinclair…..

    Middle management often reflect the attitude of top management.

      Exactly Jim, and that is why I feel this is a reflection on Obama and the whole entitlement mentality so prevalent in America today.

    Apparently they were, uh, busted, because one agent refused to pay the hooker and the police got involved and hence the Secret Service found out.

    It doesn’t take a Secret Service agent to know that refusing to pay a hooker in Columbia might result in a scene which might result in the police which might cause your bosses to find out?

    This Magnum PI was protecting the prez?

      Not a very smart man if you ask me. He should have just paid up, after all he did make the deal, and none of this would have happened. Einstein this guy is not.

      • April 21, 2012 2:24 am

        Yea he was penny wise but pound foolish!

  8. April 20, 2012 11:05 am

    Should have done the deal, and paid up front. This is tripe, and those guys should have known better. But, then again, this is one of the oldest tricks in politics. We are already the laughing stock of the Earth, and this just gave them more ammo. I’d almost wager this was a set up.

    • April 20, 2012 7:04 pm

      I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if this was a setup because it seems hard to believe that one man could be so stupid as to do something which would bring down 20+ agents.

      • April 20, 2012 9:21 pm

        Precisely.

      • April 20, 2012 9:23 pm

        Precisely. It needs it’s own selected agents around it to ensure none will follow their OATH.

      • April 21, 2012 2:24 am

        He didn’t think HE’D be the one “going down.”

        Buh dum dump!

        LOL Harrison.
