Welcome back every body by now you've heard that the president is canceling White House tours for the kids.
Kids like these.
-- -- Well here's Jay Carney is lame explanation about why.
The Secret Service like other agencies of government is affected by the sequester.
And the Secret Service presented options.
That range from canceling -- -- to.
Potential furloughs and cuts and over time.
In order to allow the Secret Service to best fulfill its core mission.
The White House made the decision it we would unfortunately have to temporarily suspend.
These two -- -- decisions mister president decisions soon.
It was you that decide to pony up for boys weekend golfing with Tiger Woods and it was -- have decided to take -- to live for Christmas and you decided -- and kids should go skiing in Aspen and that's good for them by the way.
-- -- shut the doors on those kids and Iowa and Florida and Texas.
Who make it it was president Jay Carney Gregor pencil.
What these families take -- White House tours next week and I'll cover the added expenses.
Word is it'll cost around 74000.
Dollars if I can get the White House doors open.
-- pick up the tab.
Carney you know this -- you can't refuse.
Can you call Bob really.
Really he's sixteen.
And I are placed the ball all over the country a scenario -- I -- I think we just realized that the five is that your primary source of income.
I -- as a cellular hobbies this is something you do I care that.
If a Kimberly and I volunteered to do the tourist can we get in on that scratched -- yeah I'd be perfectly honest it.
I will absolutely right there to check if they opened the doors next week and laugh at school from -- my vacation -- why Eric was canceled because the sequestration.
Well you know that the user west and that -- -- -- I see her negatives I would.
I would connected -- -- -- trip with any of this but I would say that says they clearly recognized -- about a week ago they don't you for.
Now I defend Obama as you all -- on the show every single day.
On this one.
I feel like the only -- barges to Westminster dog show.
Or I cannot.
Bring myself to understand why there wasn't something -- can be cut.
It is one of those -- is such a good story.
And -- how they would not expected to travel around that you notice a bomb has begun to call Republicans just have gone down we'll get decision about his dinner.
But I think he's found decided these -- that changes tactic.
But Kimberly today doubt that somebody from Jay -- was from today and a chance to say you know we changed our mind -- kids really need to see the white.
They're behind the story now instead of ahead of it sad and it's kind of an interesting that they have this kind of political mishap is generally speaking they've been able to make themselves look -- matter what being you know the outcome.
Here with a situation like this -- kids they should have avoided this photo op with the kids fatal please let us in the White House it's our house and not.
Visual image that has an impact that's something people can understand why not.
Andrea was -- and -- those kids by the way they were feature last night and I believe ABC.
You think today the White House it's written in what this really is affecting their kids may -- -- change we're gonna find another place the cut.
This is a tin ear at its finest they seem to not.
Ever clean up messes when they first -- which is the first rule of crisis communication and then you have all these stories this week.
They're advertising for 400 jobs.
Stories about the collect refers three collect refers being employed by the White House at 277000.
Dollars and it's just not believable and basically President Obama saying.
I'm choosing not to manage the sequester for public relations purposes that totally blew up in his -- to use this drug manages your question that you can get -- -- sit down Republicans but you but you know higher.
And I get a good idea firms up Obama should take use of his campaign bonds an update for.
Yet another thing that.
There's another idea -- anything that I -- quit this is the presidential equivalent of a child slamming the door after being grounded.
Obama's not exactly clean his room until he gets a tax increase.
But I don't know I don't I'm not that sympathetic.
I I would -- -- I don't know I went six graders let me finish are going to DC birth -- trip.
When I was in sixth grade we went to a petting zoo down the road which had a shell of disease rabbits I mean you -- LSI.
Jealous for gosh sakes -- -- -- gonna turn any misfortune that occurs.
They're gonna blame it on the sequestration no matter what happens the dog get to -- spiked again it's by truck that is a sequestration drove the truck.
You know I was in the hospital two nights ago and in the immune specials came -- at -- -- that's what happened you.
Yeah added a little -- You're saying that with a cast on your -- and Eric Franklin and I about a minute cell that the White House let's not -- Obama invited twelve Republican senators to the White House talk about I'm not sure what they talked about and you have India in talent.
I think this is.
That they would hold it at the Jefferson Hotel at the plume restaurant where it's 250 dollars for a wine tasting I get maybe didn't wanna do it on Obama's -- act at the actual White House.
The visual the split screen of senators like Rand Paul trying to do what they were doing in the senate and these other old -- senators drinking wine and swelling and rubbing elbows and hobnobbing with President Obama when -- think PR ploy.
President Obama was using those senators did why -- they believe -- have -- five years somehow he wants to extend an.
All of the great audience to this is on Washington DC -- -- -- -- for the country and they see Obama by these people and things good and the Tonight Show everything -- I think it's a -- that dinner cut probably dead.
We -- about trying to get a bill from them.
You know flat out how do you classy -- it doesn't make it that that -- say cut you know fancy people 1% of top notch sat purity and the guy the way it's a good point I think that I think that -- -- -- -- -- -- work seen and loved -- in the White House the BP oil -- went on for weeks they didn't think about that they don't seem to break and the defense of and how ready and we've got a young bog heckled backing up.
