Whose White House is it???

I can remember a time when you could actually tour the White House.  Hell, I took s, the tour in 1994.  I didn’t need a group of 13, 10, or some other absurd number.  I just requested a tour and gave some personal information-then magically I would show up at the White House and a tour guide would show a group of us around. 

First of all…isn’t the White House the peoples house?  As in you and me…and every other citizen out there?  Second of all…don’t our taxes maintain it?  Now I know the President and his family get to live there, great, but it’s still supposed to be our house! 

This is something I ranted about continually throughout the President Bush (43’s) term-well one of the many things.  And now the guy I voted for isn’t turning out to be any better about this.  What a disappointment.  I got up this morning and my husband was reading me some funny quotes from the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.  And President Obama had some good ones, so I got online to see what else I could find.  Instead I read some crap about LA in DC.  PUKE!  Take a look at what set me off!

So, do I vomit now or later.  It seems every day I read so and so is at the White House.  Tiki Barber, the Chicago Bulls, Toby Keith, Usher-who came to talk about malaria (REALLY WHAT THE FUCK DOES USHER KNOW ABOUT MALARIA???    http://www.usnews.com/blogs/washington-whispers/2009/04/25/usher-teams-up-with-the-obamas.html, and Tiger Woods.  Ugh.  Double Ugh.  Then comes the White House’s Correspondent’s Dinner.  I mean really, what the fuck does Natalie Portman have to do with any of that?  Or Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.  Or even better Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.  Ludacris???  I mean really.

Am I the only person toally disgusted that if you are an actor (not even a good one as demonstrated by the Moore and Kutcher entry), a ball player, or a rapper you can get into the White House?!  But if you are a just a tax payer and a good citizen (like me-ha-no I do pay my taxes, although I’m started to question why) you can’t get in unless you ask your Congressman a recommended 6 months in advance and you have a group of 10!  http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/tours_and_events/

Anyone else see a problem with this?!?
