It would be very difficult to close the WW 2 Memorial because of the way it's constructed.

I wholeheartedly agree with George Clooney there are some people on the right who truly want the best for this country unfortunately their party has been taken over by a bunch of a radical extremists whose only intention is to try to burn down anything related to government. these tea party people who called themselves tea-baggers hate this country and hate the American people they are on patriotic and Evil.

Hollywood Leftists will offer pap to disguise Obama's totalitarian method of governing. Clooney was primary in reacting to 9/11 by discrediting the United States. He and Obama were responsible for thousands of US military deaths in the War on Terror, which has been totally reversed with America in retreat since Obama became President. Their disruption of US resolve will never be forgotten. Their current support and arming of extremist rebels eating human hearts and using chemical weapons in Syria will not be forgotten. Their answer to these issues? Their answer is to confuse Americans by inserting anti-American queers into the military and purging high ranking officers in all Branches, who disagree in the mildest ways to these anti-American policies.

Ya have to halfheartedly agree with georgenocahones that there are some on the left who want the best for this country but their party has been taken over by a bunch of treasonous radical leftists whose only intention is to try to burn down anything related to traditional America. These unpatriotic evil marxists, socialists, and communists, who call themselves progressives, hate this country and the American way of life. What scum.

George Clooney? George Clooney? He would be flipping hamburgers if it wasn't for Auntie Rosemary? When was the last time he had a major movie? I have a miniature lab with more working brain cells then George, and I am supposed to be interested in his opinion? You are funny.

The clowns in the Obama administration closed off a side walk. That what the WW 2 memorial is. You walk along a sidewalk and walk along a path ...... That's the monument. But the idiots in the Obama administration want you to believe this shutdown is a major major thing.

They actually had MORE US Park Rangers there today attempting to keep a sidewalk closed than they usually do when the monument is open.

What's next a gigantic tarp over Mt. Rushmore, is there a valve they can shut off at old faithful? Are they putting up a big curtain around the Statue of Liberty? This is all smoke and mirrors just like the the continued closure of White House tours........you know that has to be a personal request from the she beast First Lady . Have we stopped sending the millions of dollars of international support we dole out?

The administration wants everything shut down yet his Obama care website is up and running and was so busy it kept crashing.

This shut down is as phoney as Obama himself

Actually in the late 1960's, what you represent was considered radical extremists. America moves forward with evolutionary changes. What you call radical extremists today have their opinions on issues. But the biggest thing that needs to be done is a push for a bit more personal responsibility in personal decisions, and more accountability in our everyday living. Why the hell you can't think for yourselves without getting approval from the real traitors you adore and worship is a sign of pure stupidity. You want things better for people? Well its a double edged sword. They who you genuflect to know damn well doing that would give them less voters in the Dem/Repub voting wars. The tea baggers whether right or wrong are not going away. They will always be a percentage of the population that is equal in numbers to the progressives, easily. The evolutionary changes will now continue as a turning will occur. And it will occur out of financial and economic necessity because we as Americans have violated all of the biblical deadly sins with impunity led by your insane agendas. All of this bull to cut corruption and excess so we can start the path to real growth again.

Bohner the bone head is the one who shut down the gov't. If he had the balls to send a clean bill though this would not have happened. He's an empty suit that the teabaggers drag through the shit.

You guys are such ignorant hoots. You spew out your nonsense without thinking, checking facts and being informed.

Btw, dearie, Mr. Clooney received Best Actor nominations for s Michael Clayton (2007), Up in the Air (2009) and The Descendants (2011). In 2013, he received the Academy Award for Best Picture for producing the film Argo.He is the only person to ever be nominated for Academy Awards in six different categories

Would guess he has some talent somewhere.

Now go back to bashing Hollywood ...

Liberals are murderers! They have murdered 57 Million babies for convenience and lust over the last forty years. They have turned their backs on freedom repeatedly since Vietnam, relegating millions worldwide to horror and death. Cowards, liars, cheats and thieves are the basic characters of a Liberal. Abandoning freedom loving peoples to death is second nature to you and those you support.
