I think it is a brilliant move. It shows that we can live without some dumb visit to the White House and we should defund that on a permanent basis or divert the funds to Head Start and other programs that actually help kids toward maybe becoming residents of the White House.The US President is arguably the most powerful person on the planet. To fund his reelection, Obama raised 750 million dollars.
You are welcome to believe that he couldn't find a few thousand dollars a day to fund visits to the White House for school children.
You are also welcome to be pleased that Obama decided to deprive school children of their White House visits to make a partisan political point.
Be proud of him and his politics of revenge if you want.
Me, I never thought that using school children as pawns to make a political point was anything to be proud about.
