Put Your Children Where Your Ideology Is Pres. Elect Obama

I don't know why I would be surprised by the fact that President elect Obama who is dead set against school vouchers is electing to send his children to the very private, very elite Sidwell Friends or Georgetown Visitation Schools in Washington DC. I'm guess his acolytes have no problem with this obvious hypocrisy -- because he is the great black hope. It absolutely boggles my mind why he would not be a proponent of school vouchers. I'm not outraged at the fact that he is sending his children to private school anyone is DC who can afford to do so should because the District of Columbia schools are among poorest performing schools in the nation. But why would he begrudge that opportunity to parents who love their children just as much as he does but simply can't afford Sidwell Friends? The Answer: Typical Liberal Hypocrisy.... It's a sin and a shame.

No surprise to me that he would not support vouchers. I'm sure the teacher unions gave a whole lot of coins to his campaign.

I grew up in the DC area in a MD suburb. The schools were dreadful back in the 70s when I was a girl. My parents scraped to put me in a college prep school. I am forever grateful for their determination to do this. It may have been harder if I had siblings.

I think it is disgusting for parents to have to pay their taxes for dreadful schools. At least give them a chance to give their kids the best education possible. Kids are not property to experiment with. Every day they are in horrible schools is a day behind for those students. Most of them that do not support vouchers also do not really care for home schooling, which in more cases than not produce way smarter children that the public schools do.

If I had gotten married and had children you better believe monies for private or parochial schools would have been in our budget if at all possible.

I'm sure there is nothing Obama can do that you would be happy with. You are one bitter lady.

Anonymous, again you are so dumb!!!! I can help that you can't see the obvious hypocrisy. By the way, I am a lot of things but bitter is not one of them. I am blessed and highly favored of the lord, so blessed that I didn't have to send my child to DCPS with or without vouchers. But, I am not a hypocrite. If I were a public servant I would not deny others school choice yet send my kid to private school.

Also, in case you missed it on other posts I have marveled at the public display of affection that Obama displays toward his wife and children. I have almost moved to tears by Obamas acceptance speech at the DNC. I have no problem giving honor where honor is due.

Because you have fallen prey to the "cult of personality" of Pres. Elect Obama don't fault me for having discernment. are dumb as hell.

The support of Teachers Unions is much more important than the ability of parents to send their children to the school of their choice.
