Yes it's a stupid political stunt
No, the government really cannot afford White tours anymore
Here, we have a president that is doing what he can to eliminate/curb spending, and you guys poopoo it.
Ok, perhaps the outrage is coming from the "libertarians" as well.
I do love puppies and kittens. Im sure you do too. Perhaps we can agree on that.
On the more topical point - If you're proud of your President for finally taking a stab at cutting spending by cutting out some White House tours, imagine how overjoyed you'd be if he actually worked with congress to initiate some meaningful, structural, long term cuts that put your country back on a sustainable path. I might even give him props if that happened.
Ok, this is where we disagree. Im more of a cat person , but im still a sucker for dogs. I, too am a hypocrite when it comes to food.
In general, i have never been OVER ALL proud of any president (have any of us?). There are things that im glad my president has done and there are things that i didnt care for. Im sure both sides want to work with one another, but things are so politically crappy right now that i dont think we'll ever see both sides work together again (with any future presidents as well)
Frankly I could care less about their tours.
If I could legally carry concealed during my time in DC, and during the WH tour, then I would go!
