Starting this weekend and until further notice, tours have been cancelled because of “staffing reductions due to sequestration.”
“The People’s House,” as Michelle Obama recently called it, is now The President’s House. Period.
Obama currently has a single political goal in his life, and it centers on the 2014 election: Retain a Democratic majority in the Senate and win back the House of Representatives. Do that, and during his last two years in office there will be no hand to stay him from transforming America into the America of his dreams.
And what America is that? It is one in which the federal government controls every important facet of corporate and private life, because we the people are not capable of doing it on our own.
To accomplish this goal the President will demonize and blame the opposition party – Republicans – for every bad thing that happens from here until 2014:
Hurricanes because they dispute global warming, gas prices because they didn’t embrace electric cars on a grand scale, unemployment because they won’t raise taxes and keep raising them – and canceling White House tours because they won’t cave in on sequestration.
If Obama can find a way to blame Republicans for the death of your family pet during the next two years, he will do it.
The People’s House is no longer open to the people. One would hope even people like Brian Williams and George Stephanopoulos and David Gregory might begin to smell a rat.
