Administration flubs tourism

  • Follow Letters

Just a few short weeks ago on the news, specifically NBC and Fox News, it was reported that Walt Disney World had to close the gates for visitors to the park because it was full to capacity. They asked the guests to come back later that day. That’s how wonderful business is going for them at their park.

Then Jan. 19, President Obama goes down to Disney World to tout tourism. He said, “I’m here because I want more tourists here tomorrow.” More? Is he nuts or am I missing something here?

It’s embarrassing for the country. Can you imagine what the world thinks when they hear something like this? Fox News is broadcast all over the world, so I know hundreds of thousands of people in other countries heard this news. What the heck is wrong with his administration? They must be sleeping on the job. Did they not know about the gate-closing this past December? It was news because it was the first time it ever happened.

I’m embarrassed for him.

The word is unknown to Obama.

The word is unknown to Obama. His ego would never allow such a thing.
