GOP Congressman Makes Park Ranger Apologize for Shutdown

In an astounding confrontation that took place yesterday at the World War II Memorial in DC, a Tea Party congressman from Texas appeared to blame the Park Service for denying veterans access to the facility — and then made a Park Ranger apologize for the shutdown. "How do you look at them and ... deny them access?" Rep. Randy Neugebauer asked the unidentified Ranger in an incredible exchange that was caught on camera by NBC Washington.

In fact, the Park Service has been invoking the First Amendment in order to allow vets into the memorial despite the shutdown making it illegal for the department to do so.

"It's difficult," the Ranger replied. "Well, it should be difficult," scorned the congressman. "It is difficult," the Ranger repeated. "I'm sorry, sir."

"The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves," said Neugebauer. "I'm not ashamed," the Ranger retorted.

"You should be," sneered Neugebauer.

The good news is that, despite the GOP's best efforts to divert blame to literally anybody else, most Americans know full well who's truly to blame.

A just-released CBS News poll found that 44% fault the Republicans for the shutdown, while 35% fault Obama and the Dems.

Meanwhile, a whopping 72% disapprove of holding the entire budget hostage over Obamacare, including nearly 50% of all Republicans surveyed.

The day before he was taped harassing a Park Ranger for doing her job, Neugebauer went on The Chad Hasty Show to state that he will keep the government shut down for "as long as it takes" to ensure that Obamacare is not funded, claiming it was the will of the American people.

    The park service employee was kinder than I would have been, because I would have told that TPer to take his demands for an apology elsewhere.

    What an ass hat. Park services should be ashamed of themselves?? No sir, you should be, and even more so for trying to blame a park ranger. SMH.

    I thought the park ranger handled herself beautifully.  I doubt I would have been so courteous.  I would have been tempted to say something to the effect of, "you see, sir, some of our congressmen decided to shut down the government. Perhaps you should talk to them."

    Or...

    "I'm sorry that our Congress is too childish and petty to work together to pass a budget, sir, so therefore, the state parks and monuments have to be closed."

    That is just wrong. I would have told him off right there in front of everyone. I don't care who he is I wouldn't have said I was sorry for something I have no control over.

    Sean Hannity is calling it the "liberal government shutdown." I watch him just to see how stupid Fox can get but I can only take about 5 minutes at a time. If his forehead were any lower his face would cave in.
