February 1, 2010: George Bushes' "No Child Left Behind" program is dead. In a long-promised debt repayment to the Teachers' Unions that put him in office, the Obama Administration is throwing children, most especially urban black school children, under the bus.
The No Child bill mandated that all schools must improve the test scores of school kids each year until 2014, when all public schools must have shown an improvement or their students must be provided a free education at a better school or even a private school. Sorry kids, you lose. The unions have spoken.
February 2, 2010: So Barack Obama thinks he is one of those rare Presidents who came from a humble background, huh? Contrary to popular opinion, George Washington came from a humble background and had a 6th grade education. John Tyler, Andrew Jackson, James Buchanon, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Dwight Eisenhower, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton, not only came from humble beginnings, but not one of them went to an exclusive private prep school like you did; none, except Clinton went to an Ivy League School; all except Tyler held jobs before they turned 19, ALL except Tyler and Clinton served their country in the Military; all held a real job before they became President.
Every single President, except FDR (and he was crippled) had at least one of the above - EXCEPT YOU. Yeah, you're real unique. You never wanted for anything.
February 8, 2010: In his speech before military personnel, the President pronounced ( 8 times ) 'corpsman, corpse man. Is it conceivable that any American with an alleged Ivy League education, and calling himself "Commander in Chief," cannot bowl and cannot pronounce corpsman? Eh, "professor."
February 9, 2010 (To NBC White House Correspondent . . . . . whomever): "We have confidence that the International Community is united against the (Iranian nuclear) efforts." So, what next, Mr. President? Well, says he, (flush with all this unity) through the U.N. and our allies, we will step up sanctions against Iran.
This is just plain NUTS. Iran does not care. Iran will develop the bomb. Iran will threaten the free world with the bomb. Iran will use the bomb against someone. Assuming Progressives like Obama are no longer in office, we will have the world's first nuclear war. Tell me where I'm wrong.
February 11, 2010: A few days ago you told the Nation about one of your former campaign workers who had no insurance, got cancer, and died. Here last wish, according to your account, was to be buried in an Obama T-shirt. You used this worker, whose name you obviously didn't bother to remember, as an example of why we should all support your Healthcare Bill.
Well, maybe I can be of help. Her name was Melanie Shouse. In an interview several months ago, Ms. Shouse told the reporter that she DID have insurance - with a high $5,000 deductible (like the one I had at her age). She further blamed herself for ignoring symptoms and putting off having a checkup until her cancer was too far advanced.
Where is Joe Wilson when you need him?
March 4, 2010: I say you don't have the votes to pass the Healthcare Bill even with the Nuclear Option. If you had experience (in anything except telepromptor reading) you would not have tried the amateurish stunt of allowing the Senate to sneak back in the abortion provision. Mark Stupak (and about 40 others) voted for the House version ONLY because the House had stripped the abortion provision out of the bill. It's this simple: Stupak, from conservative Grand Rapids, and others from similarly conservative districts are going to join Harry Reid on unemployment this Fall, if they vote for the Senate version.
Upon this event, my life-skills-challenged Mr. President, you will look stupid once again.
May 1, 2010: The oil rig explosion is 10 days old and your administration has done nothing to fix the problem but make excuses. It's the Coast Guard's fault. It's BP's fault - they all gave me bad information. Isn't it great having the "media" in your pocket? Otherwise this mess would be your Katrina.
A year and a half in office: WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET BIN LADEN?
