Sorry, Washington-bound spring-breakers. Your White House tours have been canceled.
The Obama administration announced Tuesday that it will cancel all tours starting this weekend, due to sequester cuts. The move prompted swift condemnation from Republican lawmakers, who described the decision as the latest attempt to make the sequester seem worse than it is.

Now if the vacations will just be cancelled, I’ll feel a teensy bit better! (Not really...this is an outrage!)
They should have been in theatre.
Better yet, contact your congress critter or senator for a private tour of U.S. Congress in the Capitol Building. The groups are modest sized, the staffs are fairly knowledgeable, you get to ride the private subway from the SOBs or COBs and, best of all, you actually get to see and learn something.
This is well known in government circles as the Washington Monument ploy; at the local level it’s called the firehouse ploy (whenever hishonor wants to frighten the rubes into handing over more of their money, he/she has the council start holding hearings to deliberate which firehouse/EMS stations will need to be closed). In the schools, they threaten to shut down athletics. Nothing new here.
Gee...and all these years, I thought it was OUR house, not that grifter and his beards house!
Did Obamas cancel the White House public tours because of Hugo Chavez’s death...
That Chavez died on the anniversary of Stalin’s death
So.....Where are the ‘lawmakers telling the Admin that since the house is closed, their state will cease sending tax money?
Afterall, why fund a closed ‘business’?
This is so petulant, just like a selfish child who doesn’t get his own way. Please God, deliver us from this ridiculously foolish imposter who has NO business being president.
It’s a good thing.
This is getting so obvious even the low information voters are going to start “getting it.”
They could run the “tours” by firing as little as 10% of the Beard’s staff!!
Someone needs to send a memo — It’s the People’s House ... not a political backdrop.
Camp David to be declared surplus property unless utilized for 60 days a year, I hope.
Don't count on it.
Good one! Excellent cover story, while the white hut mourns Chavez.
Well said! “Nothing new here”. The outrage of this ploy is just beginning to set in my mind. This couple, who have hijacked our Presidency, have the nerve to cancel tours of OUR White House? I would take away the keys to Air Force 1, and 2. No more travel on our dime. Stay in Washington and work on creating a budget for the first time in 5 years, why not?
And, while you’re at it, stop talking to us as if we are your uninformed voting bloc. Your tone is disgusting Chicago “street talk”, not appropriate for one who is in a leadership position. By the way, START LEADING!
That’s right, 1953. Joseph Stalin made me a Republican a very long time ago. I hated communism then and I hate it today.
Yes! The theatre of the absurd!
