Scenic overlooks? Really? You have to put up barriers to prevent people from pulling over on the road. Wow. Now this is just showmanship. Obama is doing his typical make it hurt response.
Check it out:
Driving down the George Washington Parkway outside Washington, D.C., today, I noticed that the two scenic overlooks that offer drivers the chance to admire the beauty of the Potomac River below are closed for the government shutdown. These overlooks are just cut-outs from the highway, providing a few parking spaces. That’s it. No little National Park Service kiosk. Nothing. It’s just a parking area that holds maybe six cars at a time.
To close them required someone to come and put up barricades, thus costing taxpayers money.
