President Obama No Superman for Schoolchildren, Obama has no clue about entrepreneurship, The owners of an anti-Obama billboard took it down after receiving death threats, Democrats Take in Twice as Much Foreign Money as Republicans, GOP Women Are "Mean Girls"


President Obama No Superman for Schoolchildren - Heritage

You know that guy who steps into a picture at the end of an event, making it look like he was there all along? This week, President Obama tried to pretend he wasn’t late to the party by hosting a photo shoot with the five children featured in the education reform documentary, Waiting for Superman. But while he poses with the five poster children of the reform movement, don’t forget how he left 216 kids just like them out in the cold.
Waiting for Superman takes the viewer through the broken public education system, as these five children—most from low-income communities—fight for a chance at a better education by escaping their failing local public schools.
The President called the documentary “heartbreaking” and “powerful,” according to news sources. However, he has shut the door of opportunity for hundreds of children right in his own backyard.

Hey Reverend, Racist Language Cuts Both Ways

A seemingly mundane effort to end Florida's notoriously-gerrymandered congressional districts has managed to bring out the worst from a few unhinged opponents. Amendments Five and Six would in theory restore natural boundaries and end the practice of manipulating lines to suit political parties.

Opposition comes from both Republicans (whose own plan was shot down in court) and African-Americans (yet the NAACP SUPPORTS it), with establishment Democrats and Hispanics in favor. The battle lines aren't terribly clear, it's more of a muddled mess as competing factions make grabs for power.

Obama has no clue about entrepreneurship
President Obama has finally admitted that a core premise of his nearly trillion-dollar stimulus package was false. In an interview this week with The New York Times' Peter Baker, the president acknowledged that "there's no such thing as shovel-ready projects," despite the president's near-constant invocation of the term over a two-year period to explain how government spending was going to create jobs.

The president's admission is no minor matter; it goes to the heart of why his economic policies have been such a failure. Not since President Jimmy Carter's confession in 1980 that it took the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan for him to fully understand "what the Soviets' ultimate goals are" has a sitting president so fully exposed his ignorance.

Obama's admission might be refreshing if it meant he would rethink his economic assumptions, but the Baker interview gives no such indication. Instead, the president seems to think his biggest problem has been his failure to communicate his policies effectively.

Maureen Dowd Ridicules GOP Women As 'Mean Girls, Grown-up Versions of Teenage Tormentors' - Newsbusters

New York Times readers were greeted Sunday morning by the American Left's new feminism wherein it's not only acceptable to demean conservative women, it's desirable.

The architect of this truly bizarre neo-feminism, Ms. Maureen Dowd, proudly wrote in her October 17 column, "We are in the era of Republican Mean Girls, grown-up versions of those teenage tormentors who would steal your boyfriend, spray-paint your locker and, just for good measure, spread rumors that you were pregnant":

These women — Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Queen Bee Sarah and sweet wannabe Christine — have co-opted and ratcheted up the disgust with the status quo that originally buoyed Barack Obama. Whether they’re mistreating the help or belittling the president’s manhood, making snide comments about a rival’s hair or ripping an opponent for spending money on a men’s fashion show, the Mean Girls have replaced Hope with Spite and Cool with Cold. They are the ideal nihilistic cheerleaders for an angry electorate.
