The party crashers managed to get past the security for the event, to mingle with the guests and get their pictures taken. They were there for social
reasons/fame, not to harm the President or anyone else.
How could this happen? How could security be so lax?
The President should be well-protected at all times. What if the dinner had been breached by someone who wanted to kill the President? (Movies and novels have certainly shown how there are many ways to kill someone--poison, non-metallic guns, perhaps radioactive material.)
He needs to safely complete his term of service.
If he doesn't, we get---PRESIDENT BIDEN! (Biden is a nice, likeable guy, but he tried to run for President, and almost no one voted for him. Brits probably don't know him, but Redwolf knows how Biden gets in the news for his careless remarks.)
I can't believe it! I didn't think it was the administration's fault.
It would be trully horrible if harm would come to Obama. I have heard that, when there are massive crowds wishing to be an one of his events, they start out checking everyone properly. Then, as the time draws near and there are thousands of people who have not been checked, they are let in anyway. Safety can be maintained, but not if steps are skipped.
I can't believe it comes as a surprise to you scholar.
They say now that they might arrest the couple for trespassing. Talk about grasping at straws trying to make yourself look good. It seems they passed no less than 3 checks and were announced, how in the world can you say they trespassed.
