Even the men sworn to protect the nation's highest office can fall short. President Obama has called for a thorough investigation of allegations that eleven Secret Service agents and five military service members were "cavorting with prostitutes" while preparing for the President's visit in Cartagena, Colombia, The Associated Press reports.

Obama announced, "What happened here in Colombia is being investigated by the director of the Secret Service. I expect that investigation to be thorough and I expect it to be rigorous ... If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I'll be angry." Do you think this secret service scandal is shocking -- or are there bad seeds in every profession?

    But this presidency and it's staff are REALLY looking like Clinton part 2.

    Partying, whores, massive spending and LOADS of debt to be passed on to the next office holder.

    DEMS-a disgrace every time, but they STILL keep getting elected.

    Who cares! i read a comment about dems always failing....guess what smart guy, each president has an agenda that needs to be put into play! Every president is not elected by us, we dont have a say! Bottom line, no matter who's in office, the debt will continue to climb when this country cant help the poor, and even plan the deaths of thousands in a so-called terrorist attack and a "levy" burst in new orleans! But instead send millions in relief funds to other countries....so lets keep this simple and understood, each president is corrupt, and the peoples concerns are not the presidents!!

    Pay attention to the founding families and their agenda on globalization of homosexuality among many things!!

    Like someone on the news said," Men will be men." I don't accept that. Men CAN be civilized. They don't have to follow their peckers around all the time. They can use their brain in their head occasionally and do the right thing. This is an embarrassment to the United States. They are supposed to be protecting that JERK they call Mr. President. Maybe they were just 'testing out' the prostitutes so Barry could have the 'best' one.. ? Of course Mooshelle wouldn't mind. After all, 'men will be men.' Even the Messiah, Barry Obama.

    You have insulted the President whom I legally cast my vote for and who won the election. I served in the military under at least one President whom I did not like at all, but it never occurred to me to disrespect his office. I thought the thing to do was work hard to get someone else elected when the time came. That being said, I really couldn't give a flip about your mama since you don't respect my President. GTH!

    yes ,however government at all levels local ,county, state wide and federal are not just bad they are increasingly less effective and lately just in competent. Paying people to show up and not take their duties seriously with no accountability is a recipe for disaster.The present workers no longer hold jobs ,just a minor distraction between weekends!

    Of course. The thing to not forget is that the majority of people really do attempt to play by the rules.

    Personally, I don't have a problem with secret service agents and military service members cavorting with prostitutes, provided, of course, everyone involved was on their own time and only consenting adults were involved.

    No budget for 4 years now.
    GSA gone wild,
    and then this.

    It seems that the higher up the income ladder, the more bad actors there are in professions. The legal profession is one of the worst, because they can excuse their corruption and immorality as doing what it takes to "win for the client." It seems that the law schools beat into their heads this selling out of conscience and moral compass. leaving them with nothing except an overriding focus on money and their license to lie.

    Already, liberal talk radio was blaming deteriorating relations between the USA & Columbia under Bush. Bush set Obama up for failure.

    Columbia was just waiting to embarrass the USA in an international inclident & seized the moment.

    There are some calls to have Bush held accountable.

    Ah Bush's fault,

    leaders lead and seek solutions, losers seek blame and excuses.

    thanks for exposing Obamas true skills. blame excuse and demonize, anything to distract from his problems:

    WORDS? emty

    record? dismall

    spending? dangerous

    agenda? scary

    and we don't know yet know what "I will be flexible with Russia" means

    what we have is a failure of leadership.
    during his administration, no budget passed, lack of leadership
    GSA gone wild, lack of leadership
    and now this. but some can be fooled all of the time and buy the into the blame game. thanks I know you were out there

    Most of the media will defend Obama & give him another free pass.

    They must & will find a way to connect this to Bush.

    I blame Bush simply because he never has the backbone to come forward & defend himself against all these accusations by Obama.

    when one cannot run on thier record the attempt to demonize others. Words from Obama People listen to Obama but don't hear him. words of Obama about his minster.

    I don't think that seeking out a prostitute for a little relaxation therapy while you're on a trip to south america means you're a "bad seed". It means you needed to get your rocks off and found the means to do it. Now if it came out that any of these secret service members did something bad to a prostitute like beat her, or the like, then yes, I would say they are "bad seeds". But thus far the allegations are just for sexual encounters.

    of course she doesn't. those were tupperware parties at the WH. 35 at last count.
    she messed up, exposed the true feelings of democrats twards women, that friend, mentor and avisor to the DNC, Bill Mohar or something like that he is HBO, gave Obama & company 1,000,000 millions of dollars doubled down on it Friday night, and he. Bill is know for calling women the B C and T words, and Obama chose to toss the Hilary lady under the bus on the Mr Ed show Mr Ed FYA is the guy that was suspended recently for calling women sluts and the sort.

    but those are just coincedences. right?

    As Obama warned us, "Judge me by the company I keep" I did, did you? who did you like?

    I'm serious, you have really bad grammar and spelling. I read through your comments and your statements just crash into each other with incorrect or bad punctuation, or with a mish-mash of badly worded clauses. It makes it difficult to ascertain what your point is.

    I take it you're trying to make the argument that Rosen somehow works for Obama or is "in bed" with him, because she visited the white house so many times. Is that the assertion?

    Well here's a 101 politics lesson for you. Congressmen and women, and DNC lobbyists visit the white house for facetime with senior White House staff all the time. Whether it's to discuss messaging on a particular issue, budget proposals, or campaign strategies, I wouldn't be surprised to see Hilary Rosen at the WH on a given day if I were taking a tour there. But even that doesn't mean anything, at least not in the context of what she said about Ann Romney. Rosen misspoke, she apologized, and that's that. There's no secret agenda towards hating women by the democratic party, or by liberals in general. In fact, we've been working our butts off trying to make sure that voting rights, reproductive rights, equal pay rights stay in place for women while Right Wing governors, state senators, and US congressmen work overtime to strip those r...

    I said it previously, and I'll say it again because it bears repeating. Rosen is not on Obama's payroll. He doesn't sign her checks, and he does not direct her message. Of all the times she's visited the WH during Obama's first term, I'd be surprised if she's met with the President more than 4 or 5 of those visits. It's more likely she's meeting with the Press Secretary, the Communications Director, and other top Obama political strategists. Usually the Chief of Staff is very picky about who gets into the oval to see the President, so it's more likely that Obama and Rosen have had their conversations at fundraisers or campaign events.

    People really need to step back sometimes and get a broader, more rational view of how politics really works, instead of making these really stupid assumptions about who's responsible for whom, just so it looks good on the front page of a Fox Noise "news" piece as yet another specious anti-Obama attack.
