Obama the douche-bag.

Obama closes the White House tours that were run by VOLUNTEERS. He's blaming it on the Sequester

The White House has canceled tours until further notice, the White House Visitors Office confirmed, citing sequester cuts.

Tours will continue through Friday, March 8. All tours for March 9 and onward have been canceled and will not be rescheduled due to “staffing reductions resulting from sequestration,” the office says.
“We very much regret having to take this action, particularly during the popular Spring touring season,” the office’s statement reads.
Some Republicans are skeptical.

“They just jumped the sharquester,” said John Hart, a spokesman for Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.). Coburn has long highlighted ways the federal government could cut back on what he considers needless spending. But in this case, he’s opposed to the White House’s decision.
“It’s clearly a PR ploy,” Hart said. “They can tour the country on the taxpayer’s dime but can’t allow taxpayers to tour the White House? Seriously?”
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), agreed. “This decision appears to be purely political in nature rather than being in the best interest of the American people,” he said in a letter to Obama.
The White House has been highlighting cuts from the sequester in order to put pressure on congressional Republicans to compromise on ending tax loopholes.
“We are going to manage it as best we can, try to minimize the impacts on American families, but it’s not the right way for us to go about deficit reduction,” President Obama said Monday.
Not every administration claim has held up. Our Factchecker dinged Education Secretary Arne Duncan for saying over the weekend that teachers are already being laid off thanks to the sequester, and Obama himself for saying janitors in the Capitol will get a pay cut.
House Republicans introduced a bill Monday that would avoid a government shutdown at the end of the month and shift some spending cuts while leaving in place the $85 billion spending reduction that went into effect March 1.

I think most people recognize this as a clown move.

The Obama future is one where we all hold hands, sing Kumbaya, recycle everything (including toilet paper and our infant's diapers), while working as "volunteers".



It will be a glorious future. Cue the piano intro to Lenin's "Imagine"....

Obama needs to be run over by 2700 light armored tanks. Repeatedly.

How does closing non-essentials make you a douche-bag? Is there no more petty criticism left for the Right?

Pretty tough to figure out isn't it, Frankie? Perhaps because its just political and not based in fact/budget?

I'm sure that is lost on you though.

Tour is run by volunteers--LINK?

Also, the security that checks in all visitors and accompanies tours--are those volunteers as well?

The Right has been making a mountain out of every little molehill directly, indirectly, or allegedly related to Obama since the day of his first election. They had 8 years of utter disaster wreaked upon this country by their village idiot and the Rasputin behind him, and they just HAVE to feel like the current guy is just as bad (or worse) or just as dumb.

It just feels like a glowing hot steel rod up their ass that the black dude is finally looking like he's putting Humpty Dumpty back together, despite shameful relentless obstructions by their side. It's laughable and pathetic how much smaller the straw strands they reach for are getting.

What does that mean? Because it basically sounds like you're saying Republicans = racists.

And who are you to talk about partisanship? This is pretty clearly being done for political effect and you can't even bring yourself to admit it. You honestly believe they couldn't find a way to keep these tours going? Right.

Oh so now that Obama is being called out for being a douche suddenly the race card has to appear.

I think even most liberals here consider Frankie a sort of buffoon when it comes to DC.
