Pool Report: Notable Quotes About the Secret Service Scandal


President Obama with Jimmy Fallon.
A pool reporter provided this intel on what the president said after being asked by Fallon about the scandal: "The secret service, these guys are incredible," Mr. Obama said. "They protect me, they protect our girls. A couple of knuckleheads shouldn't detract from that they do. What they were thinking, I don't know. That's why they're not there anymore."

The same pooler provided another piece of colorful commentary, writing in an email after the president visited the University of North Carolina earlier in the day:

"In these days of non-stop coverage of the Secret Service scandal, your pooler feels obligated to note that Mr. Obama's speech at Carmichael Arena took place directly across the road from an athletic practice facility called "Hooker Field."

The irony.

So far, at least twelve Secret Secret members have been relieved of their duties, a few taking the coward way out have retired.   The latest news is that there could have been more inappropriate action taken at another hotel in Cartagena, Colombia aside from initially reported Hotel Caribe.

"Now, you're into the hotel where the president of the United States was going to stay," Representative Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) said on the CBS program Face the Nation.

"And it just gets more troubling."
