"No I did this" "It makes all the difference"

Look the other way people I'm not being a hypocrite.

"In little-noticed confirmation testimony recently, Obama nominees endorsed continuing the C.I.A’s program of transferring prisoners to other countries without legal rights, and indefinitely detaining terrorism suspects without trials even if they were arrested far from a war zone.

The administration has also embraced the Bush legal team’s arguments that a lawsuit by former C.I.A. detainees should be shut down based on the “state secrets” doctrine. It has also left the door open to resuming military commission trials."

Perhaps this can sum things up. via

Federal Voucher Update

President Obama will seek to extend the controversial D.C. school voucher program until all 1,716 participants have graduated from high school, although no new students will be accepted

Why was it axed to begin with, again I say, paying his campaign debts to the modern clergy.
. . . the National Education Association, have argued that the experimental program is poorly administered and that voucher recipients have not performed measurably better in their new schools.

In a March 6, 2009 letter to Obama, the NEA president Dennis Van Roekel called the D.C. program "an ongoing threat to public education in the District of Columbia" and urged Obama to "use your voice to help eliminate this threat" by opposing "any efforts to extend this ineffective program."

The Department of Education recently issued a three-year analysis of student achievement under the program that showed limited gains in reading and no significant progress in math. But the White House concluded that moving the children back to public schools amounted to an unnecessary disruption.

I ask you: if its good enough to extend and does just as well, even a little better, at educating the kids for less money, why not extend it indefinitely?

A True Betrayal

"whatever works" we'll see . . .

Like nearly every politician the NEA has them in a vise: Supporting school choice = hating children and teachers.
