Couple slips though white house security to crash state dinner

Crashing a state dinner at the White House apparently takes a security breakdown as well as some kind of nerve. The Secret Service is looking into its own security procedures after determining that a Virginia couple, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, managed to slip into Tuesday night's state dinner at the White House even though they were not on the guest list, agency spokesman Ed Donovan said. President Barack Obama was never in any danger. How can anyone in this country feel safe from terrorist attacks when not only are our military bases susceptible but our White House is as well?
What I find amazing is that the Associated Press is running this 'embarassing' article about the BO Admin. AND, by adding in up pictures of this couple posing with Katie & Old Joe, it makes fools of them too. Shows how easily they can be duped.


  1. I agree. Of course, Prez BO seems to be much more lax with national security, so he probably left the back door unlocked.
    Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Hi Robert! Thank you for visiting my blog. I can't believe how this couple AND their photographer from Bravo (that's what I heard) got in there! Evidently this is a hobby of theirs....but to crash a State Dinner?

    I live in Killeen Tx, home to Ft. Hood. You can imagine how angry this town is over the terrorist attack on our military post. My SIL is currently serving in Iraq. I just posted some Thanksgiving photos he sent me.

    Wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving, with all the blessing our founding fathers meant for us to have.

  3. This is actually quite scary. Not one person, but TWO people actually got past not just the WH staff, but the Secret Service, too. Imagine if they HAD intended to do harm. They could’ve harmed both the President AND the Vice-President! And we would get…Nancy Pelosi to run the country, not that she doesn’t already have a large hand in it already, but she would be OFFICAL!

    Someone needs to fire the people who dropped the ball on this SERIOUS issue, and it IS serious. I certainly hope this isn’t fluffed off like so many other things.

  4. I was listening to Mark Belling sitting in for el Rushbo, and I think his take is probably accurate:

    Obama surrounds himself not with wise old Democratic aparachiks who actually know how to run things, but rather with Chicago thug pols who have no clue, but are clueless as to the fact that they have no clue.

    The whole White House is infested with clueless Chicago thugs who are winging it. And blowing it. But they don't care. And it shows. These two 'crashers' (not) were ushered in by Desiree Rodgers (another Chicago thug buddy's wife), and now the White House does not want her to testify, because she's probaby not as cut throat as the rest of them and will not lie very well.

  5. Isn't the total of "gatecrashers" up to 4 or 5 now?
