Take a look at this photo. It was taken in Washington, D.C., this morning, 9:10 AM Eastern time.

This is a scenic overlook on the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Washington, D.C. The GW is one of the most scenic routes around the nation’s capital. Scenic overlooks are unmanned places where motorists can pull in, park for a couple minutes, look around, maybe snap a photo, and then move on with their day. There are no amenities. It’s just a small parking lot.

The truck belongs to the National Park Service. Note the logo on its door. It’s this logo.

It doesn’t cost a cent to leave the scenic overlooks unmanned. But it does cost money — pay, fuel, the cost of the obstacles — to send National Park Service personnel out with Barrycades to block them off.

That's only if you accept that the Kenyan was his father rather than the much more likely Frank Marshall Davis.

Except for PJ Media, Drudge, Instapundit, and some others, the truth is not getting out. Obama and the MSM are blaming all this pain on the Republicans. That's all the low-information voters are hearing and that's what they believe.

Add the National Park Service to the long list of Federal agencies that are de facto arms of the DNC.

Minor correction: the GW Parkway is in VIRGINIA. . .it's on the Virginia side of the Potomac. . .The Maryland/DC side is the Clara Barton Parkway. . .

I can't believe how immature and child-like this administration has become. They're acting like immature snotty little brats.
I think it's fair to conclude that Barry has certainly gotten himself "all wee wee'd up" !!!
