Congressman forces Park Ranger to apologize for issue stemming from shutdown

Quote:
In an astounding confrontation that took place yesterday at the World War II Memorial in DC, a Tea Party congressman from Texas appeared to blame the Park Service for denying veterans access to the facility and then made a Park Ranger apologize for the shutdown. "How do you look at them and ... deny them access?" Rep. Randy Neugebauer asked the unidentified Ranger in an incredible exchange that was caught on camera by NBC Washington.

In fact, the Park Service has been invoking the First Amendment in order to allow vets into the memorial despite the shutdown making it illegal for the department to do so.

"It's difficult," the Ranger replied. "Well, it should be difficult," scorned the congressman. "It is difficult," the Ranger repeated. "I'm sorry, sir."

"The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves," said Neugebauer. "I'm not ashamed," the Ranger retorted.

"You should be," sneered Neugebauer.

The good news is that, despite the GOP's best efforts to divert blame to literally anybody else, most Americans know full well who's truly to blame.

A just-released CBS News poll found that 44% fault the Republicans for the shutdown, while 35% fault Obama and the Dems.

Meanwhile, a whopping 72% disapprove of holding the entire budget hostage over Obamacare, including nearly 50% of all Republicans surveyed.

The day before he was taped harassing a Park Ranger for doing her job, Neugebauer went on The Chad Hasty Show to state that he will keep the government shut down for "as long as it takes" to ensure that Obamacare is not funded, claiming it was the will of the American people.

Oh look a bunch of LWNJ pointing fingers.

57 HOUSE DEMS HAVE ABANDONED PELOSI, OBAMA TO KEEP PARTS OF GOVERNMENT OPEN

Since the government shutdown on Tuesday, House Republicans have pushed legislation to reopen selected parts of the federal government. They have proposed legislation to reopen National Parks, the Veterans Administration and fully fund the National Guard, among other measures. To date, 57 House Democrats, almost a third of the caucus, have broken ranks with Leader Pelosi and President Obama to support the GOP refunding efforts.
“Despite these bipartisan votes,” Mike Long, spokesman for Rep. Kevin McCarthy, said in a statement to Breitbart News, “Leader Reid and Co-Leader Schumer continue to object to up or down votes on any of these bills including funding for veterans, active service military personnel and pediatric cancer patients.”

As Breitbart News has pointed out, the federal government is ordinarily funded by specific appropriations bills covering one or two agencies at a time. There is nothing unusual about the House, or Senate, moving bills to fund individual agencies. Apparently, 57 House Democrats agree with this approach.

As the shutdown stretches on, it will become increasingly clear to the American public that the Democrats won’t negotiate or compromise. Their extremist position goes so far as to block how Congress has normally funded government. One-third of the House Democrat caucus is in open revolt of this strategy, however. Democrat defections will likely increase as the shutdown lingers.

Its all the GOPs fault. Say it loud & say it proud;

Saying congressman berates Park Ranger and sounds like a douche would be fine, but to interject stupid Democrat talking points like Hostage into article makes it commentary and not reporting.
So you're a big stickler when it comes to articles posted with a slant to them? You should have 1,000 posts by the end of next week...

Fox News Falls For Fake Story Claiming Obama is Funding Muslim Museum

Quote:
During a segment on the government shutdown yesterday, Fox News host Anna Kooiman claimed that President Obama has "has offered to pay out of his own pocket for the museum of Muslim culture." Problem being, besides the complete lie she told about the president, is that a museumby that name in Washington D.C. doesn't even exist.

Media Matters traced Kooiman's lie to the "satire" website The National Report. Fox News was attempting to point out the hypocrisy of Obama somehow refusing to compromise on a spending budget, then shutting down the government, and heartlessly blocking WW II veterans from attending their memorial in Washington. And he has the nerve to pay out of pocket for a Muslim Museum (which is as imaginary as his belief in Islam).

Here's the full quote:

The Republican National Committee is offering to pay for it to keep it open so that the veterans from Honor Flight are going to be able to go and see this because who did it honor? It honored them. It really doesn't seem fair, especially — and we're going to talk a little bit later in the show too about some things that are continuing to be funded. And President Obama has offered to pay out of his own pocket for the museum of Muslim culture out of his own pocket, yet it's the Republican National Committee who's paying for this.

[Media Matters]

Stupid liberal media...

PS: Just did a search for "Neugebauer" on Foxnews.com and it returned absolutely nothing about this incident with the Park Ranger. False & Unbalanced...

I don't waste my time reading George Soros' "media matters". Pravda, TASS , and AL Jazerra have more credibility.
