(Politico)   The GOP story of angry WWII vets "Storming the barry-cades" at the WWII memorial has one tiny flaw: it isn't actually true. Park Service employees have had instructions, since day one, to move the fences and allow veterans access to the monument   (politico.com) divider line 9

Why didn't the GOP storm the closed MLK monument across the street?

Fuggin Bizzy: My derper uncle re-posted an infographic on Facebook this morning that claims we're in 3 wars. ??? I know he didn't put it together, and I'm not going to argue that gas is more expensive now than it was at the beginning of Bush the Lesser's first term, but come the fark on, man. I normally don't say anything, but I actually asked him what the other two wars were. He has yet to respond.


War on Terror.
War on Drugs.
Oops.

I still think the President should have held a press conference at the memorial as soon as the whining started. Give a passionate speech about how the shutdown impacts everyone and these veterans are denied access to something that honors their sacrifice.

Then look at the barricades and proclaim, "Mister Boehner, tear down this wall". They would absolutely lose it and the entire debate would shift into how disrespectful Obama is and the veterans would figure out that the GOP only wanted cheap political props.

I love the "well, we got in with no problems, but I'm sure Obama wants this to be an painful as possible" quotes.

Sure, there's no problem, BUT I STILL IMAGINE THAT THERE IS.

Hurry along back into the echo chamber.  The real world is a scary place.

Oh isn't he just the most precious troll account?  His profile is adorable too.  Rarely I put someone straight on ignore.

Wait, I'm sorry.  I meant "different opinion account."

But..  But.  I was told there was a memo instructing all government workers to make this as painful to the public as possible with orders for park rangers to push any veteran they see on crutches to the ground.

Who are the Republicans going to exploit in 20 years when all the WW2 vets are gone?

Yes, but that kind of narrative isn't going to get checks written to SarahPAC.

Clearly Obama is going to use his Time Machine to go back and stamp "APPROVED" on Hitler's application to the Vienna School of Art so there's never is a World War II -- that's how much he hates veterans, he doesn't even want them to exist!
