This year’s national teacher of the year - Sean McComb of Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts in Baltimore - was honored in the East Room of the White House on Thursday as President Barack Obama recapped the story of his early life.

Obama wrapped up his remarks by thanking all the nation’s teachers.

What Clown Prince nobama was referring to was indoctrinating naive students into the LIB world of Lord nobama.

“You’re doing the Lord’s work,” (Obama) said.

1. Perhaps the school teacher is.
2. Cannot capitalize a word when one is speaking.
3. Which lord did he mean? There are many who lord it over us.

Last Sunday at church, we were discussing prayer during our adult Bible class. The leader asked if we could ask bummer one question, what would it be.

I said, “When are you going to resign barry?”

An older lady said she would ask him “What are you going to say to the Lord on judgment day”?

Never thought about it like that, but he is a far stretch from being anything but an idiot.

I guess Obama hasn’t read the Wash. Post or Wash. Times to see how many teachers have been arrested on charges of possession and distribution of child pornagraphy, sexual assaults/molesting of students, and various serious drug charges, just in the DC area in the last month or so.

And of course liberals will soon be protesting Obama’s invocation of religion in public eductation.

Right?

If they are doing the Lord’s work, why did they kick Him out of our schools? Obama is flat goofy.

Imagine if President George W. Bush had said “You are doing the Lord’s work” at a public school. There would be a hew and a cry from Atheists everywhere (especially about the supposed “Separation between Church and State”). But because it is president Obama, you won’t hardly hear a cricket chirping.

The DemocRATS sure have been getting a lot of religion lately. I wonder what’s up. First Hillary and now Barry. The elections are still six months away.

‘You’re doing the Lord’s work,’ Obama tells teachers

Let's see if I got this straight. 'Doing the Lord's Work' now means 'Organizing for incompetence, and sucking the financial blood from students' budgets nationwide?

Gee, I didn't see that coming!

Not when they teach leftism and have Planned Parenthood teach their sex education classes.

(I had to leave a classroom when working as an instructional assistant because of how the teacher was leaning left. — otherwise I would have gotten written up.)
