Shutdown overreach: More personnel sent to WWII memorial than Benghazi; Park Service closes park it doesn't run (Video at Link)

The National Park Service is sending so many officials out to shut down federal parks from visiting Americans that at this rate it might have to suspend furloughs if the government closure continues.

Right. How many rangers does it take to 'run' a static monument?

More than the Park Service is sending to make certain no one can view it?

That depends; are the rangers unionized?

Is anyone calling for a mass mall visit this weekend. If several hundred thousand show up and insist on being arrested and held what will Obama do?

Of all the stories which could hurt the President (well, the few that Fox actually publishes!), this one might be the one that stings the most.

Double tap - WWII vets getting hurt and bringing Bengazi up once again. Ouch.

This and the constant carping by GOP about Obama and Reid's unwillingness to even discuss the shutdown lead to the 5:30 meeting. Of course, the One will simply reiterate to the GOP that he isn't bending. They should leave at 5:35.

Still, the Park stuff and Bengazi is hurting.

Well of course. There are more terrorists at the Memorial than there were at Benghazi.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you’d be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!”- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (from “The Gulag Archipelago”)

Did any of those Veterans get hurt in this fracas? Some of them may have had PW flashbacks!

Somebody needs to put up a photo of the barricades at the WWII Memorial next to a photo of the obstacles at Normandy.

Thanks! Yes, I’ve seen dead’s Benghazi graphic too. I did one years ago of Clinton scrubbing Monica’s blue dress with a brush and soapsuds. May get chances to use it again if Hillary runs.

Exactly! I saw the pic this morning of three of these jackwagons putting up a #BarryCard sign...it took all three to put up one 8x11 sign. Talk about non-essential.

Ealier today somebody posted a pic of that Chinese protestor in front of all those tanks.

I suggested somebody should ‘shop in a WWII vet in his wheelchair in place of the Chinese guy. Add in the WWII Memorial as a backdrop. And don’t forget to add Obama stickers on the tanks and BAM!

You have a perfect visual of what is happening today.

Word is that the Park Service surrendered to the WW2 vets and Congressmen and women, and will now allow the vets to enter the memorial area (It is an open columnar memorial, not a house-type building).

OPERATION “RED BEACH” HAS BEEN VICTORIOUS.

Now it is time to take back Obama’s Berchtesgarten, The Red House!
