    Bad snark.

    Just to be sure, I looked it up, and according to several news services, the campaign requested Secret Service in February. It's up to the campaigns whether or not they want to use the Secret Service.

    My guess is a bunch of overzealous staffers had been told to keep people from coming through the barricade, and took it to mean that they couldn't go in either direction.

      As much as I don't like Romney, I am loathe to hold him accountable for the actions of a few low level staffers or volunteers.

        If an Obama for America volunteer screwed something up this bad, it would be all over the news; the president would ask his people to investigate, and he'd offer an apology if the volunteer did in fact cause children harm.

        Romney is a CEO. He wants to be a CEO president. The CEO is responsible for EVERYTHING that every employee (including unpaid staff like interns) does.

        If Romney's campaign isn't organized and structured for sufficient training and accountability, THAT is also his fault.

        So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
