In describing President Obama’s behavior last week, it brought me no pleasure to say that my president is acting more like a bully and pussy, than a leader and a president, while he demagogued his sequester plan. Two days ago, he validated it by announcing the ending of tours in The White House, the people’s house, and blaming it on the sequester.
ATTN Interested Parties,
Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours.
We very much regret having to take this action, particularly during the popular spring touring season. For updates regarding this situation, please contact the White House Visitors Office 24 Hour Hotline at (202) 456-7041.

Who is most affected by that childish move? Children, families, and school students on class trips to D.C.. Making the most of this manufactured crisis, President Obama sticks it to, and uses as pawns in his political game, the children.

President Obama will likely send an as-yet undetermined delegation to the funeral of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in an effort to thaw relations between the two countries, a senior State Department official told reporters Wednesday.
Ri….ght! This, while Chavez’s chosen replacement, Vice President Nicolas Maduro, a 50-year-old former bus driver and union leader (yeah, that’s about right), is telling Venezuelans that the cancer that Chavez died from was given to him by the United States. Just like, he says, they poisoned PLO leader Yasser Arafat. It’s ridiculous for Maduro to say that, and even more ridiculous that anybody believes it. The sad thing is, a lot of Venezuelans believe it. The effectiveness of this kind of propaganda has to be the envy of President Obama. But he’s not doing so bad himself. He got re-elected, and after 5 years in office, in the eyes nearly half the population, he manages to not carry the blame or responsibility for the sorry state of our country. Masterful.
I have a suggestion for who to send to his funeral. Dennis Rodman. And have him present Maduro with an autographed picture of Barack and Michelle. Or maybe Barack could autograph the pic with he and Hugo in a lip lock?
