SequEaster: White House threatens to cancel annual Easter Egg Roll

The Obama White House has never shied away from using kids as props. Now, it’s threatening to put the kibosh on this year’s Easter Egg Roll. Because, SEQUESTER!!!!111! 

Unbelievable.

“[B]y using these tickets, guests are acknowledging that this event is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the Executive Office of the President and other federal agencies,” the White House cautioned, according to two Capitol Hill sources who provided the language. “If cancelled, the event will not be rescheduled.”

Yep:

On Friday, Carney got into a contentious back-and-forth on Fox News and said the egg rolls [sic] is for a lot of military families and it’s paid for by the sale of ceremonial eggs and outside donations. “It’s a totally different budget, he said. “These are apples and oranges.”

Pathetic. What next? Will President Obama squinch up his face and threaten to hold his breath? Cancel his vacations and golf games?

Nah. That’s crazy talk! Because the president is totally focused on our finances. And all that leisure time really helps to clear his head and stuff.

Hey, these cuts have got to hit us where it hurts.

Whatever happened to “for the children”?
