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.

Then I'd get rid of things like this:

#6 Syracuse professor of psychology Michael Carey received $219,000 in federal stimulus money for a study that examines the sex patterns of college women.

#3 Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida used $15,551 in federal stimulus money to pay two researchers to study how alcohol affects a mouse's motor functions.

#6 Syracuse professor of psychology Michael Carey received $219,000 in federal stimulus money for a study that examines the sex patterns of college women.

#7 The National Institutes of Health spent approximately $442,340 to study the behavior of male prostitutes in Vietnam.

#11 1.15 million dollars in federal stimulus funds were allocated for the installation of a new guard rail around the non-existent Optima Lake in Oklahoma.

#13 Researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo received $389,000 in federal stimulus funds to study 100 residents of Buffalo, New York and record how much malt liquor they drink and how much pot they smoke each day.

#15 One dinner cruise company in Chicago, Illinois received nearly $1 million in stimulus funds to combat terrorism.

#19 Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has a track record of incompetence that is so monumental that it is really difficult to even find words to accurately describe it. Unfortunately, Barack Obama is so incompetent that he actually renominated the guy and our Senators are so incompetent that they actually confirmed him again.

#21 The Conservation Commission of Monkton, Vermont recently received $150,000 from the federal government to construct a "critter crossing". Thanks to U.S. government money, the lives of "thousands" of migrating salamanders are now being saved.

Oh, well, I missed a bunch of pages. But still it was worth saying.

And BRC doesn't question the amount of the amount the government spends on something. Just nods his head in agreement and says "yup"

I agree. Now let's save money by not taking 20 guests out to a public unprotected place and provide armed guards for them the EXACT same day you send home hundreds because you can afford the extra Secret service.

The cruel irony in this entire petulant episode of Dear Leader is we are not even saving any money.

Sequestration reduces the rate of increase in federal spending. It does not cut a penny of actual spending.

I'm just calling our your ignorance and arrogance. You have no clue whatsoever what goes into the security and background checks. And then you follow up on your ignorant view with arrogantly thinking you can do it better and cheaper.

Come on man, that's a pittance of the budget. a look squirrel moment.

We are spending BILLIONS on tanks that the DOD doesn't want or will ever use. We are spending BILLIONS on building two engines and a airplane that the DOD doesn't want. The military should be allowed to say what they need to defend the country, not forced to use expensive crap because its built in a the correct congressman's district.

I think the idea here is because Obama is equally responsible for the sequester he and his family should have some skin in the game at the very least.

Grounding AF-1 for stupid trips would probably keep the WH open to poor little school kids that have done fund raisers to visit it.

In think everyone, Congress, Senate and the President should not recieve any pay until they compromise and quit this stupid lurching from fake crisis to fake crisis.
