I somehow doubt that their entire plan is that benign.

Wasting taxpayer money and raising taxes in a recession is benign?

Our schools are already a mess. Yeah they will raise taxes and throw more money at them, what worries me even more is what else they may have planned. Our idea of improving the schools is very different from theirs methinks.

This is GREAT!!!!

The Teachers unions are already pissed off at him because his Secretary of Ed is a huge proponent of Charters, and teacher accountability. In fact last week he "applauded" the school board out east that fired the entire staff!

Anything to make the union madder is fine by me.

He did that already? He appointed a "commission". It's time to solve the next great problem.

Half of the kids they keep in schools would be better off in reform school.

I don’t think he is really for education if it means exposing the real Obama to the gullible American people. He means indoctrination into his own viewpoints.

It’s another one of those “pillars” he talked about when he first became president. I guess he’s done so well on the other ones that he feels comfortable with moving on now and screwing up education.

Of course, the right answer is to get the Federal Government entirely out of the education business. But that’s probably not on his agenda. Just guessing.

“This guy sure seems to get side tracked a lot”

Perhaps when “the guy” spends his time sneaking smokes, snorting nose candy and his daily rations of booze side tracking heads toward a train wreck.

If I had to sleep with MO and see her every day that life might drive anyone to booze and drugs.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If all the government schools were shut down today, what would happen?

Nothing! The same people who are doing the real work of education would continue doing it. Who are these people?

Answer: Parents and the kids themselves.

I am glad he is finally going to focus on his education, since he is as dumb as a box of rocks.

Realizing that the current crop of American citizens are too ornery and stubborn to accept his benovelent diktats, Supreme Commander Obama has swung his attention to the indoctrination of the New Worker’s Class, your children, soon to be the property of the People.

I’ve been told that “NO KIDS LEFT BEHIND” has been a screw up. It is almost impossible to rid the classroom of trouble makers. The whole class suffers.

This is true. The only way to never leave anyone behind is to sit there and wait for them.

This is why, (one of the many reasons) we homeschool.

Thank you for going above and beyond the Call. It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it. America needs you.

Your summary will provide an excellent bugger-gate update.

Well FRiend, I try not to overly speculate about cocain use. I deal in the hard buggers [uh, reports].

In the case of Bill Clinton ...

“Dr. Sam Houston, a respected Little Rock physician and once a doctor for Hillary’s cantankerous father, Hugh Rodham, says it is well known in Little Rock medical circles that Clinton was brought to a Little Rock hospital for emergency treatment for an apparent cocaine overdose.”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1155472/posts

Dr. Houston even went on video to talk about Clinton’s cocain problem.
