YouTube - Barack Obama & the DC School Voucher Program

Quote:
Just a reminder: Obama’s proposed budget this year was $3.6 trillion, and yet somehow he couldn’t find $18 million in there to keep this program going.
This is an excellent video of a mother (obama supporter) asking the question; How could he let this program be cut? These are the very kids that need programs like this.

It's just heartbreaking.

All the republicans who are heartbroken can send donations directly to the DC charter schools.

District of Columbia Public Charter School Board
3333 14th Street, NW
Suite 210
Washington, DC 20010

{That will happen long after Montana has seceded I'd predict.}

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Nothing much to say, is there?

How can you defend the indefensible?

Did you even watch the tape?

Well at least the Obamas are sending the right message and sending their kids to DC public schools.
OH Sorry ... they are not sending their kids to DC public schools.

Please note - many DEMOCRATS are also "heartbroken" - especially the parents, such as the one in the video, a Democrat, who felt the program was good for her child.

I have to assume that the President is not concerned about quality of education -

Obviously he is concerned about the quality of education for his kids and his kids ONLY.

These folks never fail to astonish. This is so clearly wrong yet they can't bring themselves to say anything Obama does may just be a little wrong. They have so much invested in this guy they will never admit he does anything wrong.
