At the WWII Memorial, Carol Johnson w/the Park Service says they were told to close the site by White House's Office of Management & Budget.—

Yep, there it is. Harry Reid can point his grotesque fingers at the GOP all he wants, but the order to close the World War II Memorial reportedly came straight from the executive branch.
The OMB, or Office of Management and Budget is part of the executive branch and reports directly to President Obama.
Confirmed: Those barricades are Barry-cades.
Not only did the order to keep World War II veterans away from their memorial come from the top, but Park Service employees have been “excepted” from the furlough to make it happen
Paging the lapdog media:
World War II veterans knock down police barriers to attend memorial on the National Mall; Update: Did a congressman lead the vets through the barricade?; Update: Congressman says Obama administration knew about veterans’ request and rejected it
