    Yeah...those two things are pretty much the purpose for the agency.

    Didn't you mean to say indignantly "What difference does it make at this point in time?"

    Let me guess...must be the sign of a massive coverup and requires a congressional/sente hearing even after the events are documented by an indepedent investigation.

    Does the stunt of the President declaring the government is too broke for White House tours remind you of Jimmy Carter's stunt of not lighting the White House Christmas tree? Is this the same stupid kind of stunt by a President?
    I agree. They are both stupid stunts. Kind of silly IMO

    That's good enough for me. Pretty much why I even show up half the time.

    Do you think Jay can take much more ? I don't. I bet he bails.

    Probably not. He's probably got a 7 figure job waiting for him in the private sector.

    At least if Romney was President it would be minimally competent enough to know how to keep the White House open. Obama as demonstrated a new low in incompetency. American can do better than him for President. In fact, almost anyone else would could figure out how with a mega-trillion dollar budget to keep the White House open.

    Sorry your guy is so totally incompetent.
