Secret Service director survives scandal, so far

Washington (CNN) - There is nothing good to say about a scandal involving 12 Secret Service agents in a foreign country in advance of a presidential trip with 20 prostitutes and too much liquor.

"It included two supervisors," said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. "That is particularly shocking and appalling."

    Scandals can be resolved if you just let all the information out at once. As far as the director goes, I'm still contemplating whether he should keep his job. This is not the first instance of a security breach. Have we forgotten the Salahi incident?

    So were there any Dems/liberals on the show, or was this your typical, predictable Sunday morning of the MSM helping the GOP/conservatives disseminate their talking points and misinformation messaging?

    It seems that every trusted institution goes through periods where individuals fall below the standard. Examples include; the Catholic priesthood, the Penn State coaching staff, and now, small numbers of the U.S. Secret Service. Still, citizens might agree that the one orgainzation who consistently abuses their position and the Nation's trust is the U.S. Congress. Ironically, these same people wail the loudest and are the most "outraged" when somebody else falls below the bar.

    @Truth – given that you are one of the Obama "haters", where does any of this lead to Obama? The ONLY link is that e is the POTUS and the Secret Service is a branch of the US. Treasury...
