A nickname for the White House under the Obama administration in late 2013, when during the partial government shutdown, many questionable decisions were made about what to keep up open versus what to shut down or bar from the general public. The decisions appeared to be made to make the American people "feel the pain" of the shutdown who would have otherwise not noticed; therefore, said to be done by the Obama administration out of spite and in efforts to drum up anger. The Obama administration apparently decided to close national parks, barricade ("Barrycade") open-air memorials, put cones along roadways that are otherwise usually open, restrict fishermen from the waters, evict residents out of their privately-owned homes on federal land, shut down the Amber Alert website, etc. while keeping other non-essential programs and services open, such as the golf course where Obama and members of the administration play golf.
"Who wants to visit the WWII Memorial this weekend?"
"We can't, the Spite House has it blocked with a Barrycade."

Derogatory term for the White House, used when the current administration, during a government shutdown, closes open area parks, memorials, roadways that are otherwise open 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week plus closes down large areas of the ocean, throws elderly people out of their privately owned homes that sit on federal land, shuts down the website, etc. all out of spite. These spiteful actions are meant to hurt as many Americans as possible for no other purpose than to score political points.
The Spite House just shut down but kept up and running.

The U.S. Congress was taken over by teahadist Republicans. These people who, for whatever reason, are opposed to anything proposed by President Obama. Even though the tea party is only a small, but growing, part of the Republican Party, they seem to hold the House under their control. The "spite" refers to this delusional minority holding the government hostage as they stubbornly try to get their way. This spite lead to the now infamous tea party downgrade and the equally infamous tea party shutdown These teatards would rather destroy our economy and credit rating out of spite than compromise with Democrats.
The tea party damaged America's credit rating out of spite and their opposition to reason and the tradition of compromise. The Republicans' Spite House is a big problem for Obama, the Congressional Democrats and all Americans!
