Fail: Obama shuts down Disneyworld to talk up tourism

You just can't make stuff this stupid up.
(IBD)- No, it's not another Obama vacation. He's flying Air Force One down to Orlando this morning on business.
His people say the Democrat has some new ideas on how to increase tourism to Florida and probably the entire 57 states. Naturally, this requires another Obama speech.

And what better place for a campaigning president to go lecture needlessly on improving tourism than the iconic institution that figured it all out decades ago, Walt Disney Resorts?

But here's the problem with Obama going to Disney's Main Street: They have to halt all tourism there for him to be seen encouraging more tourism, close the whole place down to tourists for much of the day while he's there and before. Even Disney employees are being barred.
