Yes I read that on all the right wing websites and Fox News had an entire segment on it. Nothing to say about all the job losses though. That's odd, What does Bill think?

MSN News - Obama makes rare visit to Republicans in Congress

http://news.msn.com/politics/obama-makes-rare...

Yeah, a rare visit - like the first time in two years. But he really wants to work together to get things done.

WASHINGTON, March 6 (Reuters)- A Reuters/Ipsos online poll released on Wednesday showed 43% of people approve of Obama's handling of his job, down 7 percentage points from Feb. 19.

(GW Bush's approval rating was 45% in 2010.)

Ronald Reagan wanted the big tent and nutjobs like you have turned it into a teepee.

Who gives a flying fk about White House tours, airport tower closings in Central Florida are of more interest to me. BTW the Air Force Thunderbirds will appear at the beyond fabulous TICO Air Show March 22-24 and close the remainder of their schedule.

We know the Liberal Media has never reported Obama being late to a Party!! Let’s flashback to when Clinton was addressing the Democrats about extending the Bush’s Tax Cuts and Obama standing next to him, Obama, looked at his watch, whisper to Clinton that he had to go couldn’t be Late to Michelle Party!! Maybe if we change the Terminology of the Budget to Party Planner the president would get serious and get the People Business Done!!

Obama suggested, contrary to previous statements by the administration, that the decision to scrap the tours fell solely to the Secret Service.

“I have to say this was not a decision that went up to the White House,” Obama said in the interview.“But what the Secret Service explained to us was that they’re going to have to furlough some folks."

Doesn't this president ever make a decision about anything in his own administration? If he's not blaming the secret service, it's his staff who makes all the decisions.

He signs the sequester and blames republicans.

Do some Americans have the word "stupid" written across their foreheads not to see this president for who he is...and what he isn't?

A lot of people care about a president who would close the WH doors in order to blame the other party, lie about having made that decision and then blame his own secret service.

A lot of people care about a president who says two completely different things on any given day about any given issue.

A lot of people care about a president who can't seem to make one decision on his own and stand by it without passing the buck.

A lot of people care about a president who flies all over the country in continuous campaign mode, spends 1 million of taxpayer dollars to play golf with Tiger Woods and then tells us WE have to sacrifice and put some skin into the game.

A lot of people care about a president who wants to raise taxes another 1 trillion but seems to think the deficit is sustainable.

The cancellation of White House tours matter because it represents a juvenile, petty reaction by a spoiled brat over spilled milk.

Same with the Thunderbirds, Blue Angels, etc.

For a White House generally very good with image, that was a huge mistake.
