Considering all of the mess that we've seen out of "other" administrations, I don't think she should be stepping down behind this. "Wisdom Is A Woman Putting In Her Two Cents!"

Good. I think she should be stepping down. For her or anyone else responsible to expose the first African American president like this (or any American president) is inexcusable. However, she is not the only one that should be stepping down. Everyone in the chain of command that is responsible for the safety of the president should also be stepping down and I don't know why that has not happened yet. If these people had been assassins the president, first lady, the vice-president and vice...

Let me ask this, if she should be fired for making the list what about the guys at the door? Get out, its not her job to protect the President, its her job to plan his parties and social events. She's being scapegoated by the Secret Service who have made numerous excuses as to why they can't do their jobs.

The Secret Service fired three agents because of the incident and initially took the blame all for the entire incident but when the Congressional Committee investigating the incident summoned Desiree Rogers to appear before the committee, she refused to testify, made excuses and hid behind her friendship with the Obamas. The main issue here is that Ms. Rogers did not have either herself or one of her staff workers positioned at the East Gate (with final approved guest list in hand) with the...

Yep, what Cholly said. I wish Rogers no ill will, but she definitely dropped the ball by not having someone posted ALONG with Secret Service. As a result well dressed strangers were able to waltz into the whitehouse shake hands and pose for pictures with the first black prez, vice prez, speaker of the house, their spouses, Chief of staff etc. The entire Obama Admin could have been wiped out, not to mention the prime minister of India. Not cool at all. I've been reading that she planned some...

I guess I admired him cuz he was soooooooo adament about the film industry respecting his wife. I remember one time during a sundance film festival while he was on a panel with his wife seated next to him and some high powered film moguel slammed Chaz when she answered a question that was directed to Ebert. Well...not only did he chewed that person out big time, he went on a little ranting saying to the rest of the participants that his wife is just as qualified to answer ANY of the...
