Well, it' safe to assume they are not as stuid as you.
The executive branch makes that decision. Did you not have a clue when they actually put barricades up in an open air monument. And it took more men to run the barricade then having an open monument. Obama is trying to make a public point and it back fired splendidly. Just like the sequester. Cuts Whitehouse tours but jumps on his jet.
Do you have any clue about anything. Don't answer. We already know.
