The optics of this would be awful for the White House.  Armed military blocking highways like a third-world hellhole?

This is a trial balloon floated by the DOT.  They won't do it, unless they're crazy.

You would think the visual of vets being locked out of their memorials would have clued them in..apparently not.

Can these people be so disconnected from reality?  A move like that will inspire a follow-up traffic protest unlike anything seen before.  And to use the National Guard?!  What have we become?  There is no escaping the fact that we have tinpot rulers.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Obama is testing the waters for what he wants to do 'down the road'.

Besides, closing the highway achieves the same result the Truckers wanted to achieve. 

So what's the point?

It would be extraordinarily symbolic and an epic blunder on Obama's part.  He would be "Barack-ading" (or is he Barrycading?) himself in his little castle.  It would be incredible.

This one doesn't sit right.  The BS meter is going off.

Could be.  Red State and The Blaze are notorious for false rumors.

I sense it too.  Just too inane of an idea.  And costly in real $$$.  Obama would get mangled on all fronts.

Obama thinks like a tinpot ruler!   He's never considered himself to be ONE part of the government but fancies himself as the supreme ruler over all the land.

Well, tomorrow is going to be an interesting day, isn't it??  :patriot:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

It sure is! Obama might p*ss off a bunch of people, or be the one po'd! LOL! Maybe we should stock up on groceries if he takes  gander to close the ones that aren't union. /s

In either case, it's going to make for an eventful day!

I think if I were closer to DC, I might take you up on the idea of stocking up on groceries.

The punk-dictator is MAD, and there's no telling what he might do.
