    Why is that an issue now? It's SOP for First Ladies.... it promotes a tourist area which benefits the local economy.... frankly, no "big fucking deal".

    Mt. Rushmore wasn't closed at all.

    From your own link:
    Not "closed".

    People go and see it if they like nature or if they're patriotic.
    Nobody's going to see it b/c Michelle Obama was there
    (nor do I care if they do).

    And I've been to Mt. Rushmore. Only so many people go there.
    There's no need to be screwing over hundreds of people
    b/c she can't be bothered to be around them.

    Who is being "screwed over"? The park wasn't closed.

    Did you complain when Mrs Bush visited the nation's landmarks? If not, then you're being an ass. If you did, then you're a fool. Which?

    No one was 'screwed over'.... just a hack making an issue where there isn't one.

    The hell it didn't. "The visit caused
    access to parts of the memorial to be restricted
    and required visitors to go through a security checkpoint."

    That's just fancy talk for Michelle and her posse took
    thirty minutes to have the area to themselves.

    So, you objected to previous First Ladies promoting tourism and boosting local economies too, right?

    Or are you just a hack with an ax to grind about the Obamas?

    Is that what you get when you run it through the Outrage translator?

    Because to the rest of us, it means that the Secret Service set up security for the First Family, the same as they always do, not "Michelle Obama hates the little people".

    Have you ever been to an event where the President or First Lady is present? There's always security, and the President and the First Lady have no control over it.

    But continue with your outrage, it's not making anyone look like an idiot aside from yourself.
