Barack Obama spitefully *chose* to make WWII Memorial inaccessible to veterans.

Every time I look at the WWII Memorial story, it gets worse.

It’s bad that the Obama administration closed down national monuments and museums, because it thinks that attacking DC tourism will give the Democratic party leverage over the Republican party.

It’s bad that the Obama administration tried to keep WWII veterans away from the monument that honors them. It failed, of course, but they shouldn’t have tried.

It’s bad that the Obama administration deliberately – deliberatelytargeted the WWII monument for special restrictions after a veterans’ group made the mistake of thinking that Barack Obama is a reasonable man who runs a reasonable executive branch, and thus would treat that group’s request for assistance with the respect that it deserved.

But this is the nasty part. This is the part where the spite comes into play.

In other words: the WWII Memorial does not have a permanent security presence, which means that there is actually no valid, ethical reason why the Obama administration could presume to shut it down for the public.  Not that the administration actually needs one. So they proactively locked down a previously-open national monument, and then presumed to tell the men whose sacrifice it honored that those men were not welcome at that place.

Never forget this moment. This is how Barack Obama acts, when challenged or resisted.  He acts ugly, and mean-spirited, and shabby.

    Just when you think you heard it all and nothing else can outrage you…

    I can say nothing good about the current occupant of the oval office, nor can I wish him anything positive. Quite the opposite, in fact. What contemptible slime.

    What else can you expect from a spoiled rich narcissistic kid. The child never grew up he never became an adult, this is what you get. His administration went out of it’s way in a “shutdown” to close off scenery. Sorry Qix “contemptible slime” doesn’t cover it childish temper tantrum does. We have a child as our President. An immature spoiled brat child who is sorely in need of a spanking!

    Dudes: this is a man whose negotiating tactic is to insult you and then order you to do it his way. What else is to be expected?

    I don’t know why I’m surprised.
    It’s exactly the type of petulant stunt we should have expected by now.
    But it still sticks in my craw.
