The next time this tool takes responsibility will be the first. Then the media will hail it as historic! For all the buck-passing from this schmuck, this may be the most pathetic bit yet. It’s your sequester and you live in the White House, but you have nothing to do with childishly cutting off tours to punish people?
President Obama said his administration was looking at ways to resume White House tours for school groups.
“This was not a decision that went up to the White House,” noted Obama in an ABC News interview aired on Wednesday, saying the directive came from the Secret Service.
“What I’m asking them is: are there ways for example for us to accommodate school groups who may have traveled here with some bake sales. Can we make sure that kids potentially can still come to tour,” Obama added.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said the decision to suspend tours was “very unfortunate,” but laid the blame on Congress for failing to reach an accord to prevent the automatic spending cuts.
