The Lonely Conservative has it right
Petty President Obama and his administration are shutting down anything and everything they can think of to make the government slimdown as visible and painful as possible to the public.
But that’s not all. A Philadelphia tavern the founding fathers used to frequent, that is owned by the federal government but operated by a private contractor, has been ordered to close its doors. It stayed open during the last shutdown, and had to cancel hundreds of reservations. Why shut down an operation that makes money?
The Philadelphia tavern isn’t the only place that stayed open during the last shutdown. Many memorials and monuments stayed open to the public back then. It appears that closing these attractions may be costing more than it would have to keep them open.
It is not clear how much taxpayer money the Obama administration is paying to ensure that government sites and services remain shuttered to taxpayers. Popular Washington spots such as the World War II memorial are now guarded by more security personnel than they are during normal operations, while federal employees have been dispatched to put up barricades on capital bike paths and other public grounds that are not usually patrolled at all.
Obama’s team has also been caught deliberately punishing World War II veterans trying to visit their own memorial, with one administration official telling a veteran’s supporter, “It’s a government shutdown, what do you expect?”
The American people are currently paying for eight mounted cops to keep people out of the World War II memorial. (Read More)
What do we expect? We expect a president that doesn’t act like a spoiled child not getting his way. But that’s what we get with this one. He’s a petty and vindictive little man.
It is all about blaming Republicans, and reaping political gains, and nothing more. Petty indeed!
