Obama tweets: ‘Tea party extremists’ close Statue of Liberty

Even as events surrounding the closing of the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., blew up in their face, President Obama and his supporters seem bound and determined to ensure the public feels the maximum effects of the ongoing government shutdown.

A tweet from the Twitter account @BarackObama was posted on Thursday that seems to almost celebrate the fact that the Statue of Liberty has been closed as a result of the government shutdown.

The tweet assigns blame for the shutdown to “tea party extremists,” who rally around the cause of liberty — an irony apparently too delicious to resist.

The account profile says it “is run by Organizing for Action staff,” before adding that tweets from the president — Obama occasionally tweets from the account — are signed -bo.

Organizing for Action is the successor of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and of Organizing for America.

The great thing about Twitter is the immediate feedback. A few family friendly examples from some folks that can expect a call from the IRS soon:

    Hmm– didn’t he use Air Force 1 to shut down the Statue of Liberty and to make sure we all knew he was boss

    lol. Really? Didn’t Boehner just try to pass legislation rejected by the senate to keep the National Parks open?

    We have a lunatic in the White House. I am serious. This man is a bully and a tyrant and needs to be ripped out of the people’s house and put in a straitjacket!!!!!! Then he should be tried for crimes against the people. This is just the tip of the iceberg if we allow this man to continue running this country. I don’t think he could pass a psych test! A hitler wannabe.

    The President and the 14 year old tweeting in his name apparently don’t follow the activities of Congress. The House of Representatives passed, by bi-partisan vote, a bill to fund the National Parks Service. It is sitting in the Senate where Senate Leadership prefers calling names to calling for a vote.
