Obama's Education Two-Step

Unless you’ve been in a coma lately, a lot of people are up in arms over President Obama making an address to school students. I feel obligated to weigh in.

As amended, I don’t see a problem with the president urging kids to pay attention, do their work, and stay in school. All kids need to get that message. The sorry thing is, and what people are upset about, is that Obama made an attempt to capture this audience for a political purpose. It started out to be a community organizer’s wet dream. But as amended, it’s a good thing.

That our education system is failing our children really becomes obvious when you look at SAT scores.

I remember JFK putting out a message to school kids and schools that emphasized physical fitness. It wasn’t on TV in our classroom, but it was directed to the students. It wasn’t a political message, it was a good message, and the schools and kids responded positively. And anything that Obama can do to motivate kids to excel (or at least graduate) would be good.

Obama, Still Lying After All These Weeks

President Obama held a pep rally at an AFL-CIO picnic today to push his health care initiative. Facing BIG LABOR, he blamed opposition to his health care-turned health insurance campaign on ‘special interests’ who were attempting to ‘scare the heck out of people.’ Actually, it is his plans and agenda that is scaring the heck out of people. Witness the polls and the town hall meetings and the Tea Parties across the county. But that’s his story and he’s sticking to it.

Oh but that’s not all. In Obama-speak, if you oppose his plan, then you aren’t for health care reform or health insurance reform. That’s a smear. He also said, as he has often repeated, that Republicans don’t have an alternative plan? That’s a lie.

“I’ve got a question for all these folks who say, you know, we’re going to pull the plug on Grandma and this is all about illegal immigrants — you’ve heard all the lies,” Obama said. “I’ve got a question for all those folks: What are you going to do? What’s your answer? What’s your solution?

And you know what? They don’t have one. {emphasis added}

Yes ‘they’ do, and it’s called H.R.3400. But the Obama media never told you about it, did they? Keep an eye out in the Editorial pages of your local paper and for the major networks (CBS, NBS, ABS, and pMS-NBCBS) to call him on it? That our President makes no bones about lying to the American people to push his agenda is disgraceful in an of itself. Based on everything Obama, my guess is the mainstream media will overlook it. The media watchdog died last year.

Regarding President Obama, you have a decision to make. Is he lying about there not being a Republican alternative, or is he that far out of touch that he doesn’t even know it exists? Which one works for you? At some point you have to ask yourself what is motivating the President to lie to the American people? Did we elect a President to put America on the fast track to Socialism? Do you think he would have beat Hillary Clinton in the primaries if he ran on what he is attempting to do today?
