Obama barricades Lincoln Memorial unlike during 1995 “shutdown”

Barry-cades become symbol of Obama’s shutdown.
Morgen Richmond, of the former Verum Serum blog, has been doing great research on the closure of parks and monuments in Washington, D.C. by Obama and the Democrats, revealing rank hypocrisy and mean-spiritedness.
For example, The White House now claims that it needed to erect barricades at the WWII Memorial to keep out vistors, including a group of visiting WWII veterans, because parks service personnel know how to perform CPR. (Seriously, that’s the claim.)
But Morgen demonstrated that the WWII memorial is open 24 hours a day, but only staffed part of the day, which means that for much of the time it’s open there are no parks service personnel there at all. Such much for the bogus CPR defense.
"The public may visit the World War II Memorial 24 hours a day." Staffed from 9:30 am to 11:30 pm. http://web.archive.org/web/20121108195139/http://www.nps.gov/wwii/planyourvisit/hours.htm …

Why was the World War II Memorial barricaded?

@jaketapper but it's open even when not staffed and 911 still works so CPR excuse is nonsense

Obama and the Democrats also have shut the Lincoln Memorial, erecting more Barry-cades.
