“President Obama surprised tourists with an appearance at the Lincoln Memorial Saturday afternoon. He was there to make the point that places such as the Lincoln Memorial are open today because The White House and House Republicans reached a budget agreement keeping the government open.
“Because Congress was able to settle its differences that’s why this place is open today and everybody’s able to enjoy their visit,” Obama told visitors.
“And that’s the kind of future cooperation I hope we have going forward ‘cause this is what America is all about – everybody from different places enjoying those things that bind us together,” he added.
