Last Tuesday, the White House announced that it was canceling all public tours of the president’s home because of … wait for it … the sequester spending cuts.
“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours,” the White House said in an email.
You can, of course, reschedule your WH tour for a small fee of $500,000!
Seriously folks, how freaking stupid and/or gullible do you have to be to actually believe that the “Sequestration” has forced cancellation of WH tours? I mean, critically thinking Americans should realize that Obama really cancelled the WH tours over rumors that Bob Woodward was going to take one to try and get close enough to ask him a REAL question.
ABC News has reported that cancelling the WH tours is saving the Secret Service $74,00 a week. How exactly is that? Are the Secret Service Agents guarding the WH during tours being given furloughs? Are they on leave without pay? Are they being laid off? Or are they just being re-assigned to other duties and therefore … still receiving pay and benefits? Where is this “supposed” savings? Enquiring minds want to know! Obama is simply throwing a petulant, child-like temper tantrum and his actions dishonor both the Office of the President and the White House! I mean, come on now! Since the Anointed One now charges $500,000 per “presidential” audience, perhaps he could do his “fair share” and help cover the WH tours? He could set the example for the rest of the nation!! But no, instead he has kicked “We the People” right out of OUR house!
So let’s get this right! We can afford to:
- Pay for Obama’s endless golf games with folks like Tiger Woods
- Give Pakistan $37 million for trade
- Give the TSA $50 million for new uniforms
- Give Egypt’s new terrororist supporting government let by radical Islamist Mohammed Morsi $1.55 billion annually (i.e., $250 million in economic aid and $1.3 billion in military aid … 20 F-16s, Abrams Tanks, etc.)
- Give the Obama family $1.4 billion in tax payer money for “expenses” in 2012 (In contrast, the British tax payers spent $57.8 million on the Royal Family last year).
Obama is making Washington, D.C. and the White House the laughing stock of the nation! By shutting down WH tours, our petulant little Messiah, Barrack Hussein Obama, is simply proving what many Americans have already come to understand … that all Washington is good for these days … is serving as a tacky tourist attraction.
