Yet another example of the Obama administration shutting down something the federal government doesn’t even control:
The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. . . But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association.
But the real scoop is this one:
The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. . .
“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
The Obama administration clearly is supremely confident that they won’t be blamed for anything that happens, but should they be? Their behavior is so inexcusable, the story is bound to get out, even with the media’s wall of silence.
