    Is no White House tours like Jimmy Carter's no Christmas Tree lighting?

    Obama declaring due to the sequester (which limited how much the federal government can increase it's budget this year) that White House tours have to be canceled. This reminds of the historic Jimmy Carter declaring the White House Christmas Tree would not be lite due to a gasoline shortage - although electricity doesn't come from gasoline.

    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 think the outrage displayed by the cons on this topic IS a political stunt. We have more important things to worry about than some trivial tourist tours.

    It is starting to look like a stunt - that will no doubt backfire and expose them as even bigger fools already.

    In this context, the word "trivial" would mean anything that makes Obama look like he's throwing a childlike tantrum?

    Maybe Obama is using this as an excuse to not have to keeping hiding from people while smoking Malboro Reds? Or is it Kool menthols?

    No doubt his main objective is to have the republican party do a major FAIL!

    and It seems to be working like a charm.

    Yes, defeating the Republicans is what matters, not the country.

    LOL, they are doing it to themselves. They need no assistance.

    Can you say "47%" for a start.

    Can you say "the Obama-Romney election was last year?"
