The White House announced Tuesday that it was canceling all public tours of the president’s home because of the sequester spending cuts.Never mind that the White House belongs to The People, and he's just the current caretaker. We can't even tour our own house because we cut about 2% of the money. And, Fox News reports that a leaked email says that any cuts shouldn't derail the current narrative about how draconian these cuts might be.
Griffin told Fox News on Wednesday that the bosses effectively said, “You can’t do anything that is inconsistent with the negative impact that we’ve told everybody these cuts are going to have.”These tiny cuts in the reduction of federal spending would hardly be felt if they were managed properly. Interestingly we wouldn't need any of this drama if the government had a budget, something we have't had for four years. Our government subsists on continuing resolutions because our Congress, specifically the Democratically controlled US Senate has not passed a budget in over four years.
This "sour grapes" mode of government highlights just how petulant and childish our President has become. It appears that he is actively trying to damage the government simply because he can't have his way on budget issues.
