    Ok now I get it. I was thinking the WH was making phone calls to sell cars or something.

    But I am honestly surprised to learn bigwigs are impressed with taking the WH tour, what with rubbing elbows what with the sort of commoners who also take the same tour. Who would have thought taking a WH tour was a political plum?

      they want the perks and goodies while calling the President names and decrying all the rampant socialism.

      I think this WH tour thing is actually the WH giving these assholes a public slap in the face.

      It's personal!

        ..a White House tour seems like such a mundane, Everyman sort of perq.

        Oh well, if this move does cut to the quick, then I guess it's a shrewd move.

          ..from Congressmen's districts come to Washington and their guy from back home gets them a tour of the WH and other govt places, it's not the bigwigs needing the tours.

          The President is makin 'em look bad in front of their constituents.

          •  Ahh good point (0+ / 0-)

            I guess I just did not think the Congresscritters would be peeved that they lost a sop to toss to the Little People. I was thinking pissed-off Congresscritter = Big Donor Concerns.

            OK, now I think I see it. I am still a bit surprised though. Who would have though canceling WH tours would have such a ripple effect?
