The President's Weekly Address: Strengthening Education, Not Cutting It

From the White House blog:

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.

If you would like to read the transcript you can do so by going HERE.

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.

Yes! Cuts to schools are at record highs and keep on coming. Keeping the electorate down, by educational or financial means, is highly beneficial for the Rethugs. Getting out the vote is vital. Great post, Girlfriend!

Thanks MP, I knew this would be close to your heart and soul... It's typical of the GOPers to do this.. it's what they always do.

our buffoon Chris Christie cut 800 million from education, in fact it might be more. He hates teachers unions, and he hates children too I guess. Why else would he cut education spending but give tax cuts to the rich?

It's not the unions.. they just make a convenient scapegoat.. It is education in general that all GOPers hate. As I said they want to keep the electorate dumbed down.
