Looks like the Secret Service has fallen on their sword and is taking the blame for allowing the White House gate crashers to gain access to the White House State Dinner last week. They do deserve some of the blame for the security lapse. But, the so does the Obama Administration. Especially this woman:

Who is she? A super model? Nah. She's Desiree Rogers President Obama's Social Secretary. You know the one RESPONSIBLE for the guest list at things like oh State Dinners at the White House. Of course she is in this position because? Well, she was a financial bundler for the Obama campaign and is a gal pal of Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett:
On the other hand I guess you could say the Obama Administration has bought change to the Washington. Especially at events like State Dinners at the White House Here is Exhibit A:

"During President George W. Bush’s administration, it was standard procedure to have someone from the White House social office at the gate for state dinners and other events with large groups of visitors, according to a former senior Bush aide who spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to be seen as criticizing the Obama White House.

The social office is most knowledgeable about the guest list and could have been called in case of any uncertainty, this official said…White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers, asked by The Associated Press on Thursday whether personnel from her office were at the checkpoint said, “We were not.”"

So what is her philosophy about her job at the White House?

"“My belief is that we don’t always get everything accomplished over a meeting table,”” Rogers says. “Many times it’s over cocktails, it’s over dinner and so the other piece to our work will be what kind of events can we create?”

TRANSLATION: I'm here to party!

Hmmmm You would think Congress investigating the security lapse at last weeks State Dinner might want to question Ms. Rodgers. But, that ain't goin' to happen in the no blame Obama administration. Exhibit C:

"The White House on Wednesday invoked the separation of powers to keep Desiree Rogers, President Obama’s social secretary, from testifying on Capitol Hill about how a couple of aspiring reality television show celebrities crashed a state dinner for the prime minister of India last week."
