Obama Can't Give Visitors Tours at the White House, But He Can Pay His Official WH Calligraphers $277,000 Per Year

The Washington Monument strategy, make it as painful as the public as possible so that they insist that the money begin flowing to DC again. Always cut the critical or highly visible stuff first, never the unnecessary stuff, because the public wants the latter stuff cut. If you cut that, they'll just say "Good."

So make it painful. Cut police, cut firemen, close schools, cancel WH tours.

Louis Gomert attempted to make it a rule of the Continuing Resolution that no federal funds shall be expended to ferry Obama to or from a golf course so long as WH tours remained cancelled.

He's now asking Obama to voluntarily give up those expensive taxpayer-funded jaunts, to shift the saving to the tours program.

You can guess Obama's answer, I'm sure.

122 I was supposed to be banned for saying one more thing about flying squid then ACE became a believer. I think he watched the video about the tie-in
between global warming and the proliferation of flying squid andthat probably did it. You just can't argue with the facts.

123 Gotta love "Terrorist Tuesdays" in the Oval Office.

Damn, I love Rand.

As exhausted as he is, he's still damned good.

Ace, you do understand that all possible sequester cuts must hurt private citizens and enlisted military personnel, right?



Public sector gets a pass as much as possible.

127 @ 103, Jones.

Check spelling? Read stuff before it's posted?

What are they talking about? Do they think we live in a white house with a staff and calligrapher on call?

Sheesh!

128 Just thinking out loud here. You know how popular those pre-stressed jeans are? You know, the ones that are faded and have worn out spots and hole in them? How about marketing pre-stressed underwear; Threadbare T-shirts with underarm yellow perma- stains and underpants with pre-printed skid marks, and female underpants with their special discoloration. We could make a million.

Ace is not at all like Anthony (Will Robinson) from The Twilight Zone episode who sends bad people to the corn field.

Nope. Not at all.

133 Whenever we have a Dem governor elected here in Virginia the first thing they do is shut down all the rest stops on the interstate highways in the state to "save money". Curiously, Republican governors who often seem more concerned about saving taxpayer funds never do this.

Obama shutting down White House tours does not surprise us at all down here. But we are still happy because we can take leaks legally this year on our way to the beach.

Posted by: David at March 06, 2013 08:27 PM (J9mCu)

134 If Americans (and "conservatives"!!) now think that cancelling White House tours is a "painful" cut, then we are well and truly f@cked. Kill me now, I give the f@ck up.

Posted by: gp at March 06, 2013 08:50 PM (mk9aG)

135 Is the message getting out, though? Does the public KNOW how much Obama is keeping for himself, in essence? It's not like ABC, CBS or NBC is saying -- so how can we get the message out to those who don't look for it?

I would like to think just knowing that Obama kept the calligraphy while cancelling VOLUNTEER tours of the WH should get the public pissed, but they re-elected him and ignored Benghazi -- I am a little scared.
