That kinda sucks. I thought before 9/11 they used to give you guided tours though? Heh since it is technically public property thats payed for and maintained with some of your tax money you should have tried to go over and sit down or something say "I payed for this chair", You would have been kicked out right away, but hey if the tour sucks you don't really have much to lose, and who else can say they defied the Secret Service and then got escorted out of the White House? BTW, I'm a big history and political buff to, but I know a sucky tour when I see one. I haven't been on it but from what you say it majorly blows.
