No White House tours, no golf for Obama, Rep. Gohmert says

Barack Obama golfIf the White House is going to cancel all public tours, then one congressman is going to cancel President Obama’s golf outings.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) has submitted an amendment to the House GOP’s continuing resolution that would prohibit the use of federal money to transport the President to or from a golf course until the White House resumes tours, as The Washington Examiner reported.

“None of the funds made available by a division of this Act may be used to transport the president to or from a golf course until public tours of the White House resume,” the amendment to the continuing resolution states.

Talk about hitting the President where it hurts.

The amendment is one of three that Gohmert has proposed and one of nine total amendments proposed, according to The Hill.

Curbing President Obama’s golf outings is wishful thinking, however, since the House Rules Committee approved a rule for the continuing resolution that prevents amendments from being considered when the House starts work on the bill this week.

    Look this half ass Honky is trying to make the American public as uncomfortable as he can and trying to draw attention to what effects the masses thats him MOA.. Now if he was serious about this I’d suggest he have Michele pull her new wig hair on her fat ass and guide the tours herself Like Mrs Reagan did on many days.. As for his gold I have no problem with that as long as he does not fly A/F one at $ 1,800,000 a minuet an for goes all the transporting of his stretch limo and S.Service people or pays for it himself ..
    Hell if this clown was serious he would have let the TSA idiots wear their old uniforms or buy their own like the New Army makes them do instead of pissing away 50 million of that crap.. 50 Mill would lead a lot of tours hell its the people house not his ghetto digs
    Lets cut of some welfare cell phones and welfare totally thats 500 Billion a yr for fat lazy slobs to suck off the Gov and tax payers teats .. I doubt this will be posted ? But when I see obama an old phrase come to my mind its called becoming Negro RICH! If the shoe fits .. is another that comes to mind this clown is spending money like a drunken sailor ..I’m sick of all the P/C crap and side stepping this or that for fear of hurting someones feeling’s we are what we are deal with it..
