You’d be hard-pressed to find one.

In case you needed any more proof that the Democrats’ attempt to block vets from visiting the WWII memorial is motivated purely by spite, this should take care of it:

Our heroes are nothing but political pawns to worms like Reid. Citizens are rightly outraged:

    Since when does any American, especially a Veteran have to ask permission, or pay for a permission slip to walk up and visit their own property?

    It would do no good to explain to these “maroons” (Bugs Bunny reference before I get attacked for spelling) what they have done. They know what they did, but as long as they yell it from the mountaintop that it is the Republicans fault, the faithful LIV’s will follow right along. : End Rant!

  • pinupartist

    Close the Departments of Education, Energy, HUD, HHS, & you can reopen all the monuments. This is typical vindictive liberal behavior. They’ll show us. Why eliminate all the do-nothing bureaucrats when they can manufacture sob stories that they can blame on their opposition? Reid knows his Orwell…

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      Its WE THE PEOPLES property, Its open 24/7/365! We don’t need to Pay for a permit/permission slip from Obama/Reid Commie Govt to Walk on Our Property or Need A Police Escort to do so! We The People Have The Power! We already paid with Blood + Treasure!

        Yeah, that’s funny… the day I first visited the WWII Memorial with my father, it was 26F with a brisk wind, and we had the place all to ourselves. No guards, no caretakers, no bums… nobody.

  • MNWoman

    After yesterday’s Obamacare exchanges disaster, the democrats should be thanking hte Republicans for offering to defund/delay Obamacare. Essentially, we are saving them from disaster.

    • Joe W.

      The disaster continues today. I have been trying nonstop to find out how much a plan would cost me, and the site is non operational and the “live chat” option is down as well. Our entire government is a travesty and it needs to be abolished and a new one formed. Period.

  • Insubordinate

    Why barricade just the WW2 Memorial, Harry? What about the other open-air memorials in DC that aren’t barricaded? You and your boss made that decision… despicable.

    • Maus

      I’m sure that if there was a LBGT Monument, it would be open 24/7.

      What next, closing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier?

  • Harold Springer

    These Vets don’t need permission to visit this memorial. They paid the price of admission for all of us. How dare reid or any other dufus in Congress including Obama to close this memorial.

    • Maus

      Yesterday, Republican members of Congress showed up with the veterans.

  • Jake Wilde

    You would think a govt. shut down would mean the grass not being cut, but barricades?

  • jamesben

    The Lincoln Memorial was OPEN ENOUGH – AT NIGHT – for a VANDAL to throw paint on it a few months ago – and this DOUCHEBAG thinks people will fall for this attack line?

    Despicable.

  • Jack Reacher

    I think we need to return to the old days of the senate……………… when a pompous wuss hellbent on weakening america would have ass knocked out. If I was a senator I would just walk up to him as he was giving a speech and bitchslap him; I would get arrested but the whole country would applaud me and I would become a instant hero.

  • alternet09

    I would hope that everyone remembers that this shutdown is brought to you by BO and Harry’s Senate lack of producing a budget as required by law for the last 4 years. If there were a budget, there would be no CR, no whining, no shutdown. The lack of leadership in the WH is astounding to say the least.

  • V the K

  • sparky5253

    The Republicans need to step up the PR campaign and use all these disrespectful acts to publicly slam Obama, Reid and the Democrats.

    Republicans should be standing at these war memorials welcoming veterans and giving guided tours.

    Two can play the PR game and Republicans would do well to learn the “no fear” attitude like these vets have.

  • Maus

    You dare to compare Harry Reid to a cockroach? While roaches may serve some obscure purpose in the overall greater cosmic plan, I can’t think of anything positive that Senator Reid actually does.So, based on that, I think someone owes our insect friends an apology.

  • Still Determined

    I am confused – this blog says Harry Reid is repulsive for blaming a political party for the shutdown – but Twitchy has been posting blog after blog doing the SAME thing??? Consistency, is not your name Twitchy.

    • Cankles for Prisoner

      It has been confirmed that the White House ordered the barricades.

      You are right about being confused, though.

  • JC526

    #NationDayoftheFinger Show Congress and Harry how you feel about the job they are doing.

  • Matt

    “It’s his fault.” “No, it’s his fault.”

    I, like many Americans, don’t dare whose fault it was, just fix it. Or I’ll get a belt after both of you.

    • axonneuron

      This is the most coherent comment here.

      • marko

        Matt and axon, I must respectfully disagree. This is not about the assignment of blame, but there is a level of responsibility that must be recognized to identify how to reasonably “fix it.” The Republicans have attempted to negotiate, the democrats have insisted on their way or the highway. Yes the R’s led with their strongest proposal, full defunding of the ACA, but the d’s did not respond with any form of counter offer, only an offer of unconditional surrender. They bellowed that they “had won the election,” but you’ll note they did not win full control of the government. Hence they must recognize that the R’s represent some portion of the country and must negotiate with them. A reasonable compromise was offered by the House, and rejected by the Senate, to offer tax-paying American citizens the same one year delay that president Obama gave to businesses without approval of Congress. Please tell me how the Republicans in the House can do what their constituents asked them to do, which is to at least get the same consideration as business interests do, when the democrats in the Senate and White House will not even begin to negotiate?

    If we had term limits in place, creeps like Reid and Pelosi would be out! TERM LIMITS!

    Dirty Dems want to shut down our monuments…Odumbo the Racist al Qaeda Clown has a grudge against Mount Rushmore…it represents freedom and the USA, both of which Odumbo hates!

  • Marvin Nelson

    @SenatorReid Reid, you little weasel, the low information voters and lapdog media might buy this steaming load, but the rest of know that you and your sleazy fellow senators are the ones responsible. You are reprehensible.

  • Memphis Viking

    So due to the government shutdown, the government was able to pay people extra to put up barricades. Liberal logic.
