President Barack Obama invited congressional leaders from both parties to the White House on Wednesday to discuss the partial government shutdown and looming debt-limit crisis, a White House official said.
There has been a tremendous backfire from Tuesday’s attempt — ordered by Obama administration officials for propaganda purposes — to block veterans from visiting the World War II Memorial in Washington. If you’ve been to that Memorial (which I visited with my family last summer), you know it’s an open-air site. No staff is required to make it possible for visitors to see the Memorial, and it took more manpower to put barricades around it than it would have to leave it open, from which anyone with common sense can see that the attempt to “close” the Memorial was purely as a publicity stunt.
Democrats are publicly explaining their shutdown strategy in terms of political “leverage.” While the mainstream media keep parroting the Democrats’ message (the partisanship at CNN these days is as shamelessly one-sided as MSNBC), ultimately the Big Lie will fail.
