The President explains that even as we focus on creating jobs immediately, we must also ensure the economy is better for our children by investing in education – not cutting it by 20% as Congressional Republicans propose.

When I hear people say "this President just doesn't get it" I have to wonder if they really listen to him or if they really see him as you and I do.
It is a proven fact, GOPers hate education. I think this is because they feel if they keep the electorate uneducated, they will always have voters. I firmly believe this to be true. Why else is it that Children's issues and education are the first things they cut?
Just look around, the Tea Baggers and their spelling errors in the signs... Even an ad the other day targeting the wrong person. Granted it was his brother, but how do you confuse Ken with John? One has never been a Congressman, and is the Secretary of the Interior, the other is the Congressman they were supposed to be targeting. Yet they used Ken's name 5 times in a spot, with no later retraction, apology or even an explanation.
All part of the "dumbing down of America" which has been talked about since Reagan.. Yeah good old St Ronnie was the one who started this mess, and it continues to this day.
This is just another reason we have to get out and vote Democratic on Nov. 2nd. Please encourage others and don't forget to vote.
