Mitt Would ‘Clean House’ On Agents

Mitt Romney says he'd "clean house" to remove Secret Service agents involved with Colombian prostitutes ahead of President Barack Obama's visit. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, told radio host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday that people should be fired who put "their personal play time" ahead of the nation's interests. He suggested a lack of leadership led to scandal, which involved at least 20 women, but said he has confidence in Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan. "I'd clean house," Romney told Ingraham when asked how he would address the situation. "The right thing to do is to remove people who have violated the public trust and have put their play time and their personal interests ahead of the interests of the nation"/AP. More here.

Question: Is President Obama handling the Secret Service scandal properly?
