Interns are usually the tour guides. Uniformed Division Officers have the task of SECURING the tours.<quoted text>You're still dumb carol, but you working up to moran status.(BTW, tours is plural = they're) " The reason for the cancellations, an official with the Secret Service told NBC News, is because the Uniformed Division Officers normally tasked with securing the tours will be reassigned to other security posts at the White House. The move will reduce overtime costs and may reduce the number of furloughs the Secret Service could potentially face, according to the official.
Generally speaking, this is hardly scandalous. The news will no doubt disappoint some tourists, and there's arguably a symbolic significance, but when evaluating the sequester's effects, this seems fairly minor. Indeed, if scrapping tours helps prevent Secret Service furloughs, it's a no-brainer."
Maybe if Obama gave up his ritual of presidential campaigning and flying all over the country in Air Force One or gave up golfing temporarily, the Uniformed Division Officers could continue to secure the tours at the White House.
