Posted on 10/04/2007 12:25:34 PM PDT by Slapshot68
WASHINGTON, D.C.Acting on behalf of its more than 1.4 million members, the executive council of the American Federation of Teachers today endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for president, citing her proven ability to advance our nations key priorities, and her bold plans for a stronger America.
Our members have told us that they want a leader they can trust to strengthen public education, increase access to healthcare, promote commonsense economic priorities and secure Americas place in the world, said AFT President Edward J. McElroy. Hillary Clinton is that leader.
Clinton thanked the AFT executive council for the unions endorsement and said that, as president, she will be committed to improving and strengthening our public schools, providing support for teachers, and ensuring our education system is able to meet the needs of the global economy and that we have commonsense laws that make that possible.

“Proven ability to advance the nation’s priorities”. NAME ONE.
Man! I didn’t see that one coming!
And you are surprised...why?
Phony Teachers? (after all, the union is supposedly speaking for all it’s members.)
Teacher unions have no responsibility or agenda for the education of our children. Their sole responsibility is to represent its members. Any rhetoric about their concern for the education of children is simple untrue. If they say that Hillary has a proven record, that’s true. That record is solely for the advancement of the union’s causes which has little to do about education.
“And you are surprised...why?”
Not surprised at all. My wife’s a teacher and it’s because of their overt liberal agenda that she’s chosen to not be part of the union.
Their leadership is marxist. They like to pollute the classrooms of their young charges with homosexual propaganda.
They hate America; Hillary hates America so much that she wants to move her fat backside into the oval orifice and finish this country off.
(Not in the sink. That's reserved for Billy Goat.)
Hillary: Endorsed by NEA
When will she get the coveted Planned Parenthood endorsement?
Where’s the guy with the Captain Obvious graphic?
I’m sure that will be coming soon enough. Nothing surprises me in the least anymore...
the union must be impressed by Clinton’s performance with the schools in Arkansas...absolute proof the union could care less about actual academic performance.
Pro Abortion Lobby
Anti Military people
Militant Gay Lobby
Anti Gun lobby
People For the American Way--Socialists
Media Matters---Hillary's socialist front group
Illegal Immigration proponents
You get the idea. She is supported by every America hating group there is!
Surging from 49th to 49th!! YEEEE HAWWW!! She IS the Education Queen!
As long as you understand what the meaning of "is" is!
Another union attempting to make folks think all members support their choice. My union does the same but... I don’t follow. So, in my opinion, meaningless endorsement.
The endorsement makes teachers look dumb (way low IQ).
