On Thursday, two Fox News hosts -- Eric Bolling and Sean Hannity -- offered to pay for two weeks of White House tours if the administration would simply open the doors, Jim Hoft wrote at the Gateway Pundit.
"Make you a deal, Mr. President. Jay Carney, grab a pencil," Eric Bolling said on "The Five." "Let the families take the White House tours next week and I'll cover the added expenses. The word is it'll cost around $74,000. If I can get the White House doors open, I will pick up the tab. Mr. Carney, you know this is an offer you can't refuse. Give me a call."
Bolling made the offer after playing video of children in Iowa begging to be let in the White House.
"The White House is our house. Please let us visit," they said.
Later in the day, Sean Hannity said that he would also pay for a week of tours.
Gingrich told Hannity that Obama could fund 50 weeks of tours if he gave up one of his golf outings.
On Tuesday, the White House announced it was canceling all public tours due to sequestration.
“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours,” the White House said.
But many believe Obama is purposefully inflicting as much pain as he can on Americans to pressure Republicans to cave on tax revenues.
In response to the announcement, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) introduced an amendment to the continuing resolution prohibiting the use of public funds for transporting Obama to and from a golf course until the tours resume.
Gingrich told Hannity that Obama "has been consistently dishonest" about the sequester, adding that "almost everything" that has been said about it has been "totally false or grossly exaggerated."
