Skip to comments.Obama: "Not my fault" - White House to Re-Open (Nothing ever is)
Posted on 03/14/2013 7:15:53 AM PDT by Kaslin
Four days after slamming the doors of the White House closed, Barack "It's-not-my-fault" Obama says he's going to ask the Secret Service if to reconsider.
Contradicting previous statements, Obama told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News this morning that neither he nor his staff had anything to do with closing the public out of the White House. This time, he threw the Secret Service under the bus.
I have to say this was not a decision that went up to the White House, Obama said in the interview with Stephanopoulos. But what the Secret Service explained to us was that theyre going to have to furlough some folks."
"The question for them is, you know, how deeply do they have to furlough their staff and is it worth it to make sure that weve got White House tours that means that you got a whole bunch of families who are depending on a paycheck, who suddenly are seeing a 5 percent or 10 percent reduction in their pay, Obama said.
Obama's contention stands in stark contrast to the words of Jay Carney, the President's spokesman who specifically announced last week that the White House did, in fact, make the decision to close the doors.
In order to allow the Secret Service to best fulfill its core mission, the White House made the decision that we would, unfortunately, have to temporarily suspend these tours, spokesman Jay Carney told reporters last week.
ABC News also reports that Secret Service officials confirmed that the decision to cancel public tours was made by the White House.
Not accepting responsibility and flat our contradictions are nothing new to this White House. It's more like standard operating procedure. "What difference does it make?" Hillary Clinton's Benghazi defense may well be the motto of the Obama "No-Fault" Administration.
If you think it is husseins fault then you are obviously a racist.
What did 0bama do with Harry Truman's sign "The Buck Stops Here"?
Now that Obama is floundering, it’s time for the RINOs to run in and save his butt...again!
He sold it to Hillary, who thought it meant something else entirely.
I’ll say it,, IT’S BUSHIES FAULT!
The Secret Service has ways of making Obama regret throwing them under the bus...
I’m sure somebody in that group knows exactly what Obama and Reggie Love do in their time together...
Even if I never voted for a democrat and never will?
Nothing...NOTHING associated with this administration happens without the explicit approval of Valerie and Barack.
He probably threw it in the fireplace.
Beezle gave up a golf lesson and one of the headliners at Mooch’s birthday bash to fund the reopening for a year. /s
It's still around, somewhere.... next to the Churchill bust.
More likely, from the SS's recent sexual escapades, the more homo element would participate with the Reggie Love crowd. And those fagolae are not talking.
Barry the Sequesterer blamed it on the Secret Service this time. Somebody is going to have to fall on their sword for the emperor.
I ask this question in all seriousness:
Are there any members of this forum who would WANT to visit the White House with Obama in charge?
The black Bart Simpson.
Is anything his fault?
Yes, not going after conservatives enough.
