Hillary Gets Teacher Endorsement (Barf)
http://www.aft.org/presscenter/releases/2007/100307.htm ^

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 nation’s 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 America’s place in the world,” said AFT President Edward J. McElroy. “Hillary Clinton is that leader.”

Clinton thanked the AFT executive council for the union’s 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.”

Now you know why public education in this country is so bad. Educators are more interested in pushing their agenda rather than facts.

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.

And why shouldn't the battleaxe from Illinois (by way of Arkancide and New Yarkansas) get the approval of the Teacher's 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.)

I can’t...I have no use for the teacher’s union either. If I could get my pig headed husband to agree I would homeschool our daughter asap. Last week I had to talk to the vice principal about a bus stop problem. That moron told me it takes a village to raise a child & I told her don’t give me any of that Hillary bs....I knew this was coming, that American Federation of Teachers would endorse her. I am not surprised in the least. Are you?

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.

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).
