Obama administration has ordered more barricades to keep out World War II vets as he claims the Republicans supporting the vets Tuesday were engaged in a childish stunt.
Barack Obama added more barricades around the World War II Memorial Wednesday – an outdoor memorial – because he doesn’t want anyone getting near it.
Michele Malkin’s Twitchy site calls them Barry-cades.
He doesn’t want a repeat of yesterday when vets got in to see it thanks to Rep. Gohmert.
Rep. Steven King and 7 other congressmen went down to the memorial to help the World War II vets who were massed around the memorial. Rep. King distracted the guards while the vets and the other congressmen walked into the memorial led by the other congressmen.
The veterans came with the Honor Flight charity and many have waited years to see the memorial.
Rep. King said “I rank this as one of the best days I’ve had a chance to be here in Washington — perhaps the best,” according to The Washington Times.
Carol Johnson with the Park Service said Tuesday that they were told to close the site by White House’s Office of Management & Budget, tweeted Stephen Hayes of The Weekly Standard. As of 11:00 this morning, the park service said, “All Honor Flights are being granted access to the WW II Memorial to conduct 1st Amendment activities.”
Blocking this memorial is like saying people can’t look at the reflecting pool or the cherry blossoms. It’s outdoors!
Obama is going out of his way to inflict pain on the American people.
Obama’s officials claimed guards had to be stationed around the memorial if it were left open and they didn’t have the money for it. However, guards are walking around the area anyway.
There are some reports that guards threatened the veterans with arrest.
The Founding Fathers must be rolling in their graves over this.
Obama’s aides had been asked if the vets could go into the memorial on Tuesday and they were told there was nothing they – the White House – could do.
We have a president who can’t allow vets in to see an outdoor memorial?
Rep. Stockman tweeted that Obama sent more protection to the World War II Memorial than he sent to Benghazi.
You will be happy to know that the First Family dog walker was NOT furloughed. The assistant chef is probably not being furloughed. It is not known Obama’s food taster was furloughed though it is reported that the taster was furloughed with sequester.

Mounted police are now guarding the Memorial from visitors. Will the tanks roll next?
