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.

If you saw the video right after that exchange a by stander told the Congressman to leave her alone, she's just doing her job.

That congressman is an asshole. Blaming and shaming the john doe workers for the shutdown when he and his fellow congressmen are responsible was pretty damn hypocritical.

Yeah, tough spot. Are you supposed to quit your job over it? Be insubordinate?

I'm surprised the park service is performing these duties with such fervor. You would think there would be rangers at the state level that were slow to make this stuff happen. There has to be some very specific orders coming from very high up to make this go down like it has.

I would have been very polite, "Sir, it is really simple. If you would stop procratinating, waiting till the last minute, and do YOUR job I wouldn't have to be the guy guarding this gate. So please get back to doing your job so I can start doing mine again."

You can tell it's left-wing propaganda by the use of the word Hostage. Just more rhetoric from the leftist media.

The "leftist" media didn't make this dumbass berate a park ranger that was simply doing their job. Hate the media all you want but what that guy did is sleazebag garbage.

It's like if you were an Exxon/Mobil Exec and then decided to cuss out a clerk at a local station over high gas prices.

Do you think that the media gave the congressman a script to say that to a park ranger?

Are you trying to claim that article isn't grossly tilted left?

No, but use of the word Hostage shows that the media got it's script from the DNC. I didn't watch the video because I'm currently on a crappy mobile connection. Just referencing the bias interjected Into the article by the leftist media. 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.

You're digging deep for something that's already on the surface.

Look no further than the part of the article that states:

"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."
