One of the monuments in the National Park is the WWII memorial. This memorial is open to the public 24/7 with public access overseen by the Us Park Police. So when Obama hears a group is coming to tour the monument they order it closed and barricades placed around it because of the "shutdown". Hey you idiot for a President the memorial is in a public place and not even staffed and is guarded by the park police who are not part of the "shutdown". It took more people to put up the barricades than it does to staff the monument. Folks don't fall for his 3 card monte.
