I’m sorry if you’re sick of the subject but it’s just not going away. It was on every single news broadcast that I watched today. Not even just news shows but shows like The View were talking about this today and it seems opinions are very varied so I thought it might make for a good discussions while it’s still news.
I had this conversation with my mom this morning but of course she thought I was “picking” on or “making fun” of Obama. Heaven forbid I do that so she wanted to pick an argument with me.
First she laughed over it. I didn’t really ever find any humor in it. I mean, it’s kind of funny I guess if you think it’s funny for just any person off the street to touch and be in the same room with our president. These people “seem” okay but hey, they didn’t have clearance to be there. Then she blamed the people and said they broke in. I asked her how did she figure that? They walked in the same door everyone else walked in. They didn’t sneak in a side door or climb through a window. Then she said they were trespassing but I still begged to differ with her. They were ADMITTED to that dinner. SOMEBODY let these people in knowing their names weren’t on the list. The first check point person who let them in didn’t see their name on the guest list but he “thought” the next person would catch them. HUH???
People are talking about pressing criminal charges. It leaves me wondering what for? These people didn’t break in. They didn’t really lie. They pretended like a couple of kids would pretend. They never planned to hurt anyone and they had nothing on them to hurt anyone so what would they be charged with? Is lying by omission a crime now? These are two celeb wanna be’s and they went to a dinner at the White House with no invitation and they were admitted. They were thisclose to our president. OUR PRESIDENT!!! This is downright scary to me. But I don’t blame the couple. I blame whoever’s job it was to keep this from happening.
This is an attention seeking couple and whoa, they sure got attention didn’t they? As an American, I’m also embarrassed that something like this, in these times of war and nuts being on the lose, that someone with no clearance was in the same room and shaking our presidents hand and is being “hugged” by the vice president.
So, what do you think?
