LOS ANGELES, March 9, 2013 — Due to severe sequestration budget cuts that are not really cuts, President Obama has decided to inflict pain on the American people to avoid looking like the President who cried wolf. The problem is that this time President Obama got too cute by half. He threatened to fire people that many Americans should be glad to see fired.
Fired teachers? Good. Start with the ones who molest children. Then move on to the ones who shut down their own classrooms to organize protests. Finish by eliminating all teachers except ones who teach subjects that lead to students becoming potentially employable. Advanced Placement Economics teachers can stay. Students can learn “ethnic studies” on their own time.
Fired airport security? Fantastic. Another individual with a bomb made it on another plane while another elderly lady had her wheelchair busted and her knitting apparel confiscated. Americans know who is blowing up airliners, and have had it with protecting the feelings of terrorists.
Now the White House is canceling White House tours.
Outstanding. This is delightful. This is as big a threat as if they threatened to cancel the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities. Maybe they will really call our collective bluffs and threaten to stop holding press conferences.
Let the White House cancel these tours.
Fox News analyst Eric Bolling has offered to pay for an entire week of tours. Sean Hanity offered to match that. These are both good men, but their noble intentions are mistaken.
The White House is the last place in the world that any child America cares about should be visiting. In the Obama White House, history began in January 20, 2009. Various aspects of White House literature have been altered to include President Obama’s “contributions” to society. A visit to the White House will skip the first 43 presidents and include a heavy dose of indoctrination propaganda about Mr. 44. While Obama cannot be scrubbed from the history books entirely (as he is trying to do with his predecessor), there is no need to expose children to more of him.
Children go to the White House to see what an American President “does.” They want to see him at “work.” Take the children to a private golf course. That will satisfy their curiosity. If they want to be taken to a place where nothing useful is accomplished, take them on a tour of the State Department. Five minutes listening to John Kerry will have them crying and begging to learn about real jobs in the private sector. Children would be slightly better off being taken to a bordello. At least they would learn about commerce.
If the Republicans win the next presidential election, White House tours can resume January 20, 2017. It may take a couple of days to dust the many rooms that have not been in use since 2009.
Until the White House is once again a place of dignity, decency, and respect, there is no need to subject our children to the place where our current Child-in-Chief retreats in a huff after his latest temper tantrum over phony budget cuts.
