TOPIC: The White House

The White House 15 years 3 months ago #9820

I'm going on a tour of the White House tomorrow. If I see Dubya, is there anything you guys want me to ask him?

I thought they shut tours of it down permanantly after 9/11? I doubt you'll see him but if by some chance you did, and they actually let you talk to him then try asking him about his comments yesterday. You know that whole thing about terrorists thinking of ways to hurt us, and them as well. Heh or just to be a pain in the ass, although you will probably get kicked out, offer him a pretzel. :razz:

They re-opened tours again. You need to book them a month or so in advance and they do background checks and stuff.

Oh yeah thats right I thought I heard something like that but I just didn't really think of it. Don't you also have to go in groups of like 40 people or something to? I think my uncle was telling me about this and he was saying the tours have to be in bigger groups like a family can;t just go in for a tour anymore. Which that doesn't make alot of sense to me considering they will be giving you like a full checkover when you get there, so whether it be 5 or 40 your still going to go through the exact same security checks.

I'm back. We didn't see Dubya, and there were no terrorist attacks. I'll let you guys know how it went tomorrow. Time for a party and bed, I got 5 hours of sleep last night.

I toured the White House back in the Bills days too. Been there done that. It was nice. It would suck if they stopped the tours altogether. It is, after all, public property.

Well first off I'm a little dissapointed at the tour. It was a 30 minute selfguided tour through 5 rooms. I saw the green room, the red room, the blue room, the East room (i think), and the east dinning room. Those were the 5 rooms we got to walk through. We got to look into another 5 or so rooms. There were lots of paintings of ex presidents all over the place, and old furniture. For the tour you walk through the rooms and about 75% of each room is roped off. In every room is either a secret service agent or a white house security guard. They told everyone a little about each room and the stuff inside. The tour was free. My cousin called up our local congressman and the tour gets set up through him. I think we had to have group of 10 people for the tour. There was 4 of us and 6 poeple we didn't know form the area. Security is tight. They had a sighn with all the stuff you can't bring into the whitehouse. On that list were things like, cameras, animals, knives, stun guns, and firearms. It was neat being in the White House, but a 4 hour drive for a 30 minute tour just didn't cut it for me. My cousin was really into it because he's a big history buff and George Bush fan.
