A decision that one up to the White House but what the Secret Service explained to us was.
That they're gonna have to furlough some -- well what I'm asking them as are other ways for example for -- to -- school -- You know who may have traveled here -- some bake sales can we make sure that -- potentially can can still come to tour.
Well that was President Obama telling ABC news that he's considering reopening the White House for tourists perhaps.
He finally realize that not only is it the worst kind of PR to keep the doors closed.
But that the White House belongs to the people.
As we got offered to chip in to help keep the doors -- for the -- -- for the kids Sean Hannity got on board of my good friend Donald Trump offered to pick -- the entire check.
-- the pin heads in the White House worked on damage control this looks like a victory for the American people we spoke.
He finally listened and were -- accomplish our goal which is returning the people's house.
Back to the people -- know anybody because pres Obama theirs at all you don't wasn't my decision that was the Secret Service at presence so that sit well with you.
Not really there is anything at all his faults if any any bad that happens he takes no blame for.
Anything good that happens -- -- has nothing to do -- that he takes credit report it's a masterful but I think it's wearing a little thing and when they announced.
That he was gonna do this interview today this is today's an -- George Stephanopoulos would have this interview.
I said this is not a good idea they don't have news to announce when you put the president out in front of a major anchor.
You want them to have something to say instead all they did was this inside baseball thing all day.
They didn't drive any message and Jill Lawrence of National Journal that a piece earlier -- what.
In doing this interview today plus he tried to bump the Pope off -- the front page.
Kimberly Jay Carney at a press conference today midday around 1230 or so.
And he went back and forth on this press -- our -- Ed Henry -- clarify this is what wont point he said yes the president didn't make the decision.
But another point in the same press conference he said.
They never really that the Secret Service made decision wasn't our fault wasn't our idea.
-- this highlights the problem they've been messaging issue where they can't seem to stay on point or agree and they make inconsistent statements.
Which everybody knows in court man child that's gonna show -- to be someone does not credible.
We can we believe you now arguably what you said before it's it's not clear at all and it doesn't seem presidential -- -- -- Presidents making the decision.
Regrets making that is how we're gonna move forward we'd listen to the American people on this is what we're going to do.
That would show leadership instead of passing the -- blaming others or appearing to be indecisive at it now it looks like he is backed into a corner.
And was forced to act to correct and south.
Or what about about maybe sequester wasn't working out the way plan putting everything in front senator may be backtracking now portals what's -- The idea that you guys actually believed that this guy made this decision I'm sure the president that states set up -- Amish stuff on bill today.
And decide what I'm gonna do to deal with sequestration aspect is that part of -- the -- -- concern.
I'm going to stop tourist.
Now that is the most ridiculous.
How buck doesn't stop with him ever many at a -- so obviously he's not making those decisions Bobby -- staff that is.
Nothings ever -- -- is 01 with somebody else they'd pass off as someone else to I think that.
That's the thing that's most on believe well I think I -- -- had already said.
We did make the decision to stop the tour is -- special.
The the Secret Service said -- and the -- -- -- the official announcement might thing is.
A weak pathetic.
We've we've heard some kids and -- having a big sales we might open the doors for them to get motels -- -- Applebee's to respond to the doors -- and -- bro I know when you have the money line up today.
When you look bad it was bad staff work roller ram bad mess you know around but I'll guarantee they did not stop in the Oval Office that deficit -- -- He didn't have that announcement why -- say look.
-- the responsibility is mine.
I'm changing my I'm I'm going to change -- nine -- -- but it was a bad decision.
And not throw everybody else under the bus -- he tries to stay all pure we -- help but think about this one -- but guess what.
The kids are gonna go they're gonna see the White House and it's still going to be Secret Service agents there -- -- what about the senior citizens.
And we'll get by the senior citizen groups that are going to Washington it you know that they got to kind of senior citizen you'll have a bake sale you can go that I got and I got they got -- -- got to go -- -- --
