Sounds silly, right? But is there anything that could possibly be more childish than cutting off White House tours?
In response to an announcement by the White House that it will end public tours due to sequestration, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, filed an amendment to the House GOP’s six-month continuing resolution that would prevent President Obama from using federal dollars to go golfing, a favorite pastime of his, until the tours are reinstated.
Maybe we could also bar him from flying up to ESPN to make his annual NCAA tournament picks.
“None of the funds made available by a division of this Act may be used to transport the president to or from a golf course until public tours of the White House resume.”
Can’t wait to see the infantile response to that. Other Republicans need to follow Gohmert’s lead: Fight Obama with the mockery and scorn he’s so richly earned.
