What does it take to fix the Secret Service?

Lou Dobbs, the financial commentator on Fox Business News during a recent "Lou Dobbs" show (3/17/2015), posed the question "What does it take to fix the Secret Service?" Mr. Dobbs went on to castigate the agency for the string of mishaps and poor judgment, of late, on the part of some of its members. What I know about the Secret Service comes primarily from a fictional account, the movie "In the Line of Fire" starring noted actor Clint Eastwood; and a nonfiction expose, the book Life Inside the Bubble by former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino.

In both these accounts, it is clear that the Secret Service has been a stellar group of Americans dedicated to a clearly dangerous job in behalf of America. If these folks are acting up now, the elephant in the living room that Mr. Dobbs and other pundits like him seem set on ignoring could be the cause of their downward spiral. That elephant in the room is Barack Obama and the toxic atmosphere that his very presence brings to the Presidency.

Secret Service agents must pledge to give their lives in defense of the President of the United States. How many of you out there would be willing to give your life for a man who despises everything about the country to which you may have devoted a lifetime defending? I am not a trained psychologist, but I have no problem understanding why so much darkness has permeated the Secret Service. It is the same darkness that permeates the military, owing to purposeful destruction of unit cohesion and willful moral degradation of the corps by Obama and his administration.

It is with considerable disgust that I listen to what seems like woeful ignorance exhibited by otherwise intelligent people such as Lou Dobbs. Rather than place the blame for the crumbling state of the Secret Service where the blame belongs, Mr. Dobbs goes on a tirade against the very people who are the victims. If you want to continue the traditions of excellence in once stellar organizations such as the Secret Service, the military, and any other institutions that must pledge fealty to the President, then you must remove Barack Obama from the Presidency. Replace him with a patriotic American, and I am convinced that an immediate change for the better will result.

It is emotionally devastating for people to work counter to their own well-being. If Secret Service agents know that in their job of protecting America (and by extension protecting themselves and their families) they are being required to shelter and protect the very agent of America's downfall, that is a recipe for mental turmoil. I can easily see how a couple of guys would get wasted and crash into a barrier in Washington, DC, especially if the behavior takes them off any detail that directly involves Obama.

Perhaps some agents see the off-track behavior as a way out of the service altogether. Such reasoning can have negative consequences for them and the nation. If otherwise good agents find circumstances under which they must work untenable and there is no "politically correct" way to proceed, they may opt out of their chosen careers. The situation is the same in the military. As Obama forces his anti-Christian, anti-family and pro-homosexual agenda on the military ranks, patriotic, capable fighting men are abandoning military careers. None of this bodes well for America, and Obama and his puppet masters are well aware of this fact.

I ask Lou Dobbs and any who think the way that he does, what has Obama done to garner respect from the men and women who pledge to take a bullet for him? What is he doing to impress upon those agents that he respects and admires America, and is not in fact a traitor to it? How has he shown them that his domestic and foreign policy is not deadly to the survival of the country and by extension, their survival? A thorough examination of the answers to these questions is crucial to how one answers Mr. Dobbs' initial question, "What does it take to fix the Secret Service?"

Only if the behavior of Secret Service agents is weighed in light of Obama's pernicious exercise of his duties and how that perniciousness affects those agents (who must defend him with their lives) can a fair assessment be made of the current state of the agency. I stand firmly with the Secret Service and hope that no more of them will go off the deep end before Barack Obama is finally assigned to the ash heap of history, where he and all small men like him truly belong.
