    Oh come now, no need to be either absurd or alarmist. If Clinton or McCain had been the first they would have been demanding an investigation as well. As is they other two were discovered as part of the investigation into Obama's. They can relax knowing there is already an investigation into the incidents underway.

    They didn't KNOW about the breach until it happened to Obama.

    Give your Obama hate a rest.

    This just shows that our government cannot even do its job. How in the world could such a thing happen. It tells me that every person in the Bush administration is failing in their job.

    I guess only Obama deserves a public apology?

    This man is just scary and his campaign manager needs to step down. He has eliminated Obama's chance of being a running mate with Hillary and is tearing the party apart something aweful "Untrustworthy human being?" He needs to be fired or sued in my opinion.

    Why did Obama "jump up and down"? Because he wants to change the subject from his relationship with Rev. Wright.

    Jessica your comments seem incoherent and out of the blue. What does his response to this incident have to do with North Korea or his foreign policy? So far he has proven himself to be the most level headed candidate. I think you are a victim of your own statement, don't just jump to write a comment, you should probably read your comments over before pressing the submit button.

    What s the definiton of INSTANITY- keep doing the same old this but expecting a different output. This why I'm voting for Obama he wants to make change by not do the Old potical trick of yesterday like Hillary.

    He is trying to prove a point, that our privacy and security is bunk.

  19. Clinton now Obama

    OBAMA was notified FIRST. Then the State Dept. looked at Clinton and Mccain's records. So Jessica you sound stupid with you comments. Why don't you get the facts BEFORE you post.

    Jesica,
    Obama's was the first to be revealed. None of the other candidates have had the chance to respond. So clearly, neither Clinton nor McCain would respond to a nuclear attack... Because the two are connected... somehow... You lost me.

    @Jessica,

    Didn't your parents teach you that if you could not bring something of value to the table...then shut up!!!

    Bills was also breached when he was running and there was a bush in the White house then too.
