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.

Tour is run by volunteers--LINK?

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

"For the record, a person has to go through their Congressman to arrange a White House tour. And they usually have to be scheduled more than one month in advance. So this notice was a little late in coming.

The White House Visitors Office is located in the East Wing of the White House. It employs seven people. Besides arranging White House tours, they also oversee the White House Easter Egg roll. (Which undoubtedly will be the next item sacrificed on the altar of sequestration.)

The White House tours themselves are actually "self-guided." A detail that no news media outlets is bothering to report.

Fortunately, if you pony up $500,000 to Organizing For Obama Action or any of his several other front groups, you can still buy access to the White House and Mr. Obama himself."

OK...thanks.

When I did a tour it wasn't "self guided." They don't let you just wander around. There was a guide who took a group from spot to spot, along with security.

You mean the same people who would vet ANY person coming into the White House, the people that will already be there? Those people already being paid?

Here's one link about the volunteers though

You asked two questions... What about the people being paid to work security and where is the link showing the people giving tours are volunteers.

There you go.

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"....
