10 Reasons Why Republicans Want To Sponsor The White House Tours.

Last week, the White House made a decision to suspend the tours of the White House due to budget cuts. Predictably, this decision angered the Republicans, as does any other Obama’s decision. Though, unpredictably, several prominent Republicans, such as Sean Hannity and Donald Trump, actually offered to chip in with their own money to keep the White House tours going. Unfortunately, this amazing generosity did not extend to paying even a cent to prevent furloughs and layoffs of air traffic controllers, firefighters, and teachers. Here are 10 reasons why Republicans believe that preserving the White House tours is more important than education or defense.

1)  A tour is the only way a Republican can get into the White House now.

2)  The White House is the only federal building with the heat on after the budget cuts.

3)  Trump and Hannity still hold out a hope that while on a tour, some brave patriot will get a chance to rummage through Obama’s papers and will finally find his real birth certificate.

4)  Because unlike the furloughed teachers, the White House tour guides do not teach evolution, but a Republican-approved version of intelligent design theory, according to which the Founding Fathers created everything.

5)  To every Ronald Reagan devotee, closing White House feels like closing the Vatican feels to a Catholic.

6)  The Republicans want to obstruct Obama administration further by clogging the White House hallways with tourists.

7)  By sponsoring the tours, they could claim that it’s their own money that keeps the White House open for business.

8)  Donald Trump still hadn’t had a chance to see which carpets and drapes he would need for when he’s elected president.

9)  Since Obama Administration refused to rule out drone strikes on the American citizens even on the American soil, the White House suddenly became the safest place in the country.

10)  According to Republicans, running the tours should be the only function allowed to the Democrat-controlled executive branch.

    #1 all the way. Soon you’ll need 10 secret hide-outs to escape GOP wrath if you continue like this. The Faux News bathroom is a good place to start, or under Greta’s skirt.

    What would we do for comedy without the GOP? I ask ya. They are indispensable at this point.

      Well, at least they provide the material for our blogs, so I can’t say that they are completely useless.

There are certain subjects if I don’t laugh or make light of from time to time; would just have me shaking my head in TOTAL disgust and DISbelief and with a serious doomsday mindset. Thank GOD I always look at the positive side of things..

            I try, I try my friend..Although there are times , when even for me, its a stretch to find the sunshine..Thanking God I don’t have many blue moments or rainy days. Having said that it takes all kinds and viewpoints to make the world rotate properly, or so I think. So together, you and I, compliment each other perfectly in our outlook on things. See how nicely I flipped that? lol..headed your way when I log back on to read your re-blog


  5. I have no favorite, this is pure gold.

    I am thinking Republicans won’t seriously consider taking over the tours unless they can find a way to turn it into a cash cow for millionaires and billionaires.


    • List of X says:

      All presidents are happy to welcome billionaires and millionaires in the White House, and Obama is not an exception, unfortunately. Though, in this case, I think it’s mostly the interests of millionaires and billionaires that Republicans care about now.


  7. “this decision angered Republicans, as does any other Obama’s decision.” Exactly. Love it.


I can see you have something to say...
