An Immediate Defense?

by Deacon Blues

Yes, I am greatly alarmed at the news about ongoing Secret Service security breaches over the last several years, at a time when this president has encountered vastly more threats than his predecessors. But I am also alarmed frankly at the default position of this White House to immediately and publicly support the Secret Service director in the midst of yesterday’s congressional debacle.

Exactly how shaky are things inside the Service and inside the White House that such assurances are necessary?

Update: So why give such an immediate defense if she resigned anyway? Why did the White House make itself look stupid by coming out to defend her earlier in the day if it was already in the works that she was on her way out?
