White House locked down after car is driven into secure area

Washington (CNN) - Officials locked down the White House on Tuesday due to a situation at a street entrance to the complex, according to CNN journalists inside.

The move came after a vehicle followed a motorcade into a secure area at 4:40 p.m., a U.S. Secret Service spokesperson said.

    This rates a "Not Benghazi" on the standardized Boehner-McConnell Benghazi Scale.

    I'm going to run home and turn on FAUX news to see what poor gunowner's rights were impeded upon by the turrible Federal Government when all he did was fire off a few rounds from his automatic assault rifle in the general direction of the White House while alternating between screaming 'Benghazi' and 'Where's your birth certificate!'.

    I don't want to talk about the Secret Service but what has happened to one of the most prestigious government group?
    Prostitution, drunkenness and more blips than I ever remember hearing about them.
    The Obama girls could have been in danger. How does this happen again and again?
