Barack Obama is trying his best to make the government shutdown hurt; a normal tactic for far Left Liberals. Every federal government institution has to take off or close, even the World War II memorial.
Obama is getting a fight from some Republicans in Congress. In this case, Obama is getting a hard push from congressman Steve King an Iowa Republican Representative who assisted older veterans in removing barricades surrounding their WWII memorial. King helped a group of octogenarians, some them pushing ninety get onto the memorial grounds.
Another Republican Congressman Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said "These are guys that were not stopped by Nazis, Fascists, Axis powers, kamikazes...these guys made it through all that, and this is their memorial." Obama may have met his match...another dictator toppled by patriots!
