The nation's largest education union has endorsed President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign.
Members of the National Education Association voted to support Obama on Monday at their annual convention in Chicago.
In a statement, NEA President Dennis Van Roekel says Obama and the union share a vision and members wanted early and strong support to help his election.

They favor an America that is both economically and militarily weaker? To what end?
Now, I’m really surprised!!!!
...meanwhile, sun rises in East, and dog lifts leg on fire hydrant...
Is this satire???
America’s public schools are turning out dumb and dumber students....apparently the function of the NEA is not to educate rather they want power and more power......
You don’t think the progressives/socialists/cmmunists want educated people do you? They want drones! Stupid, lock step drones! And, the teachers unions are producing them for the cause.
The NEA doesn't have that open mind, and they are not looking to see which republican, RINO, or TEA candidate will be nominated to oppose the communist. They are looking at all the options, seeing the spectrum from Palin, Cain, Bachmann, and DeMint on the limited government side all the way to Romney on the big government fringe of the GOP and saying they prefer communism/socialism over any alternative. It's not about competence, character, or values, just endorsing the most left-wing fringe candidate available.
So? Who else are they gonna vote for?
Even if the NEA rank and file doesn’t care too much for Mr. Obama, they will cast an aiffirmative vote for him.
However, a bunch of ‘em might stay home.
PS: Is it true that New Hampshire has the lowest taxes in the US, but has the highest SAT scores? Just wondering.
yeah yeah... why bother to wait for all that icky “see who the OTHER candidates might be” stuff...
This is my shocked face:
This really is breaking news.
If you rob Peter to pay Paul you can always count on Paul’s vote.
In other news today. Water is wet!
It would have a tad more credibility if they would at least wait to find out who the other candidates are.
This would have been news if the teachers Union had not endorsed Obama.
As it is ,it’s not news, it’s just the teachers showing that they really are not smart enough to be teaching our youth.
It’s more like dumb and dumber. We’ve become a feel good nation. As long as you have self-esteem, apparently it doesn’t matter if you’re living in a cesspool of mediocrity. Obozo want everyone in the same cesspool.
The total failure of students in America’s schools can be laid right at the feet of the dimocrat party and teachers unions. They totally are responsible for the stupidity that comes out of schools now. Kids now need college educations to get up to what used to be a high school education. They simply have failed. And people just let them continue to do it. Kids quitting school at record numbers. Test scores in schools lower than home schoolers. What a mess.
Mediocrity would be a major step up from what we have. That cesspool is not mediocrity, it is something else entirely.
The NEA endorsement was bought and paid for a long time ago.
