Pass or fail, the Democrats are looking at a massacre of historic proportions come this November at the ballot boxes. But will Obama take note of the Zeitgeist here? Of course not. He will simply move on to his next target for destruction: pick one of three, and that would be cap and trade legislation, legalizing illegals, or ramping up the destruction of our public schools.
All three are as destructive to the economy as anything that has come before Congress in our lifetimes, this current disastrous health care reform bill notwithstanding, and that's probably making the thugs in the White House giddy with excitement. I would put my money on our public education system as Obama's next victim.
Just this morning, I saw the Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan (pictured above), throwing down the gauntlet of reform for this huge sector of wasted taxpayer money, and I see nothing but terrible things going forward. Sec. Duncan was formerly the CEO of the Chicago Public Schools prior to being tapped for the top education slot in the country. His credentials? Running an already awful bureaucracy which was knee deep into the red FURTHER into the red. Sounds like a rock solid resume to me.
Now he wants to run our already horrible public school system into bankruptcy, just like he did in Chicago. He is already gearing up for a run at pouring additional billions of YOUR money into this failed system, thinking that all we need to turn things around is more money shoveled into the incompetent hands of the teachers unions.
Obama sure did pick the right guy for the job. Kansas City public schools have been run into the ground by Democrats for the last 50 years, and are now faced with shuttering 50% of their schools through sheer incompetence and corruption. Now Arne Duncan wants to take the Kansas City public school model and apply it to the entire United States.
November can't come soon enough, as these guys are spending us into oblivion.
