Re-Opened White House Tours Require Photo ID ... Yet Obama Still Opposes Showing I.D. To VoteTopics: Political News and commentaries
Like most everything else about this administration, this defies logic and common sense.
Via Red Alert:
America rejoiced when the White House announced it would re-open for tours after cuts to funding from sequestration. But in a blatant display of irony, visitors to President Barack Obamaâ€™s home must show a government-issued photo ID to enter, but not to vote.More here.
Tours of the White House resumed after a seven month hiatus, with the first official tour given to tourists yesterday. But for visitors looking to head inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave ... they must show valid, government-issued photo ID.
"All guests 18 years of age or older will be required to present a valid, government-issued photo identification... . All foreign nationals must present their passport," it states on the White House's â€˜Tours & Eventsâ€™ page.
This criterion is particularly ironic given the fact that the man living inside the White House adamantly opposes voters showing photo ID before heading the the polls.
