Obama’s Park Service Removes Handles From Water Fountains

It gets harder every day, but even now the Obama Regime hits new extremes of juvenile pettiness on a regular basis. The latest malicious idiocy from Obama’s shutdown spectacle:

Republicans contend that the NPS [National Park Service], which is part of the executive branch, is under orders to make life difficult for would-be parkgoers as part of a broader political plan by the Obama administration to turn public opinion against Republicans. …

Senior Republicans have said they may open a formal investigation into the mass closures and the barring of people from places where no significant maintenance or security is required. Small children’s parks, hiking trails, and outdoor monuments remain closed despite the minimal investment needed to maintain them, if any.

In what looks like a spiteful move, the NPS even removed handles from water spigots along the Chesapeake and Ohio canal where bikers and joggers exercise as well as along the Great Allegheny Passage, just to ensure people don’t get any water from them.

Instead of saving money, the NPS is expending additional resources to go out of its way to close such locations and to make people miserable.

Next NPS agents will promote the shutdown by placing tacks on park benches to make sure no one enjoys sitting on them.

So long as his establishment media enablers can convince dupes that Republicans bear responsibility for this, the strategy is ostensibly working. Yet it is no coincidence that Obama’s job approval rating is down to 37% and sinking, despite a quarter of the country being of the mindset that would support a left-wing black president under any circumstances whatsoever. The Alinskyite tactics that worked on Chicago’s South Side may not be applicable nationally after all.
