Obama has faced three times as many threats as predecessors

President Obama has been targeted by three times as many threats as his White House predecessors, according to The Washington Post. That detail comes from an astounding review of the Secret Service's lax procedures and lapses after a gunman fired shots at the White House in 2011, striking the building with at least seven bullets.

"The handling of this was not good," former White House Chief of Staff William Daley told the Post.

The report comes one week after a man leapt a fence around the White House and made it all the way into the building before being apprehended.
