Nothing demonstrates how petty and vindictive President Obama can be than the closure of national memorials and parks. They weren’t closed during previous shutdowns and it takes more money and personnel to keep vets away from the Vietnam Veterans, Korean War, and World War II memorials than it does to allow access to them. President Obama simply wants to make the shutdown as painful as possible for everyday Americans and blame it all on Republicans. This inexcusable behavior should anger every American. This is beneath the office of the President of the United States.
