White House spokesman Jay Carney bristled Friday at suggestions from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions that a series of recent incidents â€” including Secret Service misbehavior in Colombia, the General Service Agency spending scandal and soldiers posing with dead Afghan insurgents â€” symbolized a breakdown in President Obamaâ€™s leadership.
â€œAny assertion by those politicians you mentioned of the nature that you mentioned should be valued at the cost that you paid for it,â€ Mr. Carney said. â€œIt is preposterous to politicize the Secret Service, to politicize the behavior of â€” the terrible conduct of some soldiers in Afghanistan, in a war thatâ€™s been going on for years.â€
Both Mrs. Palin and Mr. Sessions are Republicans. A clearly irritated Mr. Carney rejected any notion that the incidents reflected on Mr. Obama in any way.
â€œWhat theyâ€™re doing is trying to turn these incidents, one thatâ€™s still under investigation into, you know, political advantage and obviously you recognize that, everyone here recognizes that,â€ he said at Fridayâ€™s White House briefing.
Mrs. Palin told Foxâ€™s Greta Van Sustern that she was disgusted by news accounts that a Secret Service agent now linked to the Colombia scandal had previously made jokes about checking out her â€œbacksideâ€ when she was a vice presidential candidate. She called the agentâ€™s behavior â€œpretty embarrassing.â€
The agent â€œwas kind of ridiculous posting pictures and comments,â€ she said. â€œWell check this out, bodyguard. Youâ€™re fired! And I hope his wife â€¦ kicks him into the dog house.â€
