What about the 125,000 families that struggle with their meager incomes and have to take assistance from the government for their rent?

Nope, you guys apparently don't care one bit about those people, otherwise you would have brought that up. Nope, instead you guys just regurgitate yet another talking point from your lords over @ Fox News. Have to say, I am not surprised at all.
Funny, half of the park next to my house was just turned into a Head Start facility. Now there are children there every day.

Interestingly enough, the other half of the park the baseball fields were also renovated. What's interesting about it is that all they did was dig up the old clay infields and put in new clay infields. The end result is nearly identical. They probably could have started another Head Start facility with the funds they wasted on the ball fields.

Its been learned that Sasha and Malia Obama are quietly on spring break vacationing at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. While the kids that couldn't afford a Caribbean vacation weren't even able to tour the WH. I guess that Mexico was deemed to dangerous for the O kids this year. Oh BTW did the air traffic Control Tower in your area close last week.

How about VP Joes latest trip...

1 night in London at the Hyatt = $459,338
1 night in Paris at the Intercontinental = $585,000

Very efficient use of taxpayer money.

At least have the nuts to own your opinions. Do you just routinely take time from your day to criticize where an 11 year old and 14 year old spend their spring break? Or are you posting that drivel because of your hatred of our president?

You're kinda new here so you're probably not aware that saying something negitive about the current administration is usually preceived by the resident liberals as racist and/or hateful.

No, he hates Atlantis, not those charming children.

And that's a peanut butter sandwich, not a cracker.

That's just awful. How dare those kids be allowed to go on vacation anywhere ever. No other president's kids were allowed to go anywhere on vacation. This is an absolute outrage. Those kids should be impeached!

Not that I begrudge them the perks, I don't.

But it's at least a bit tone deaf don't you think?

How many parents in America today can send their kids to the Bahamas? How many can afford to send them anywhere?

We could give a shit where the president's kids go for spring break. The point is that bullshit politics of closing the WH when it's cost to run is a minuscule part of the budget.

People blindly believe that head start programs are being cut because they don't know where the head start programs are. They believe that homeless people are loosing their soup kitchens because they don't know where the soup kitchens are. They believe people aren't getting their government assistance because they don't know anyone getting government assistance. But they know where the WH is and they know it's closed. If the WH is closed, all the other stuff must be happening as well.... right?

Never mind that head start programs are popping up all over the place and that vast majority of soup kitchens and shelters are not run by the government and the fact that government assistance has not stopped.

The point about his kids being in the islands for SB is that for many other kids, the only opportunity to do anything outside of their 5 block radius of life is a school trip to the WH which can't happen because of bullshit political pouting.



If anyone really believes that the fed govt can't find some mismanaged money to cut out of the budget to keep something as small as the "People's House" open; then how can you possibly believe they can get us out of the deficit pickle that we're in?

Think about that for a minute.... if the Fed Government (not democrats or republicans, but the government as a whole) can't manage the money well enough to keep the WH open to the public, which the public paid for. Then how can we possibly trust that they can get us out of the hole we're in?

+1

Especially to the racist part. It's a shame ScotchandCigar got banned (like three times, pathetic), he'd be calling you all racist all day long.

Good, then leave them out of it. Your beef is with the Govt, not with the Obama kids. It's a cheap shot to 2 innocent kids who don't deserve it.

Not that i brought up BO's kids, but isn't closing the WH tours also a cheap shot to innocent kids who don't deserve it? Lets be equal now....

In your words.... "Obama's beef is with the republicans, not with the kids of DC. It's a cheap shot to THOUSANDS of innocent kids who don't deserve it."

Your sudden concern for the kids of DC is touching, but at least be consistent. Where's your concern for the 2 innocent little DC kids who have nothing to do with why you are pissed off? The Obama kids didn't close the WH.
