I am confused. I thought he was going to do the laser focus on jobs thing? This guy sure seems to get side tracked a lot.
Obama will now
Focus on smaller things, like
Buzz words for raising taxes and spending money.
You can be sure that
He will protect the jobs of
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.
Will he teach kids the best way to do this?
Obama picks nose at summit [Yes we can. Drill here. Drill now.]
ETL and Impy both confirmed that this is NO HOAX:
“This guy sure seems to get side tracked a lot.”
You can say that again. [Did you catch post 9?]
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.
Socialist education camps.
He did that already? He appointed a "commission". It's time to solve the next great problem.
I just saw it. At least he was doing something there that he has experience in doing successfully, he looks like a pro.
Half of the kids they keep in schools would be better off in reform school.
It will never happen.
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.
Take your riddlin honey, and settle down.
Mo guilt tripping the taxpayers into paying mo money to pay mo teachers mo money to educate mo uneducable kids
