Why would Obama think this was a good idea?

  • LadyJ--A letter of Reprimand is a punishment. Nobody loses their job for one mistake. Yes people should have been notified, but even when you notify people they do not really pay attention then freak out about it, saying oh well nobody told me.

    SOME "mistakes" just don't have the wiggle room room for "on the job training!" (you know, like the Presidency--as we are quickly realizing!)

  • sounds like ya'll are getting desperate. the article doesn't even say Obama was involved and the person that DID authorize it was punished.

  • No one was punished. A letter of reprimand was placed in a file. This was stupid, plain and simple. Obama knew about it. What I want to know is,why the secrecy and why were they stupid enough to cause such panic? Idiocy all around. Even the MAYOR didnt know about it????

  • Obviously it's still AMATEUR HOUR at the White House!

    And WHY is it when something STUPID is done, Obama COULDN'T have known about it? But when something actually goes right (like some Navy SEALS doing a great job they trained YEARS for), he gets ALL the credit, even if though he had very little to do with it?!

  • Couldn't they have used photoshop or some other photo program? It would have been a whole lot cheaper too. Less carbon footprint. But I guess all the better if you can scare the pants off of a bunch of people.

  • Obama had nothing to do with this. He's busy trying to say our colective asses.
