I don’t blame Barack Obama for sending his kids to an elite private school in Washington DC. Who wouldn’t want to send their kids to someplace better than DC public schools? Why does President Obama take that choice away from other inner city parents in DC who don’t have the luxury of paying any price for their childrens education?

This but the latest in a long line of examples of the difference between Obama’s words and deeds. On the campaign trail, Obama talked about supporting vouchers. He also made sure that you knew how courageous he was to take on the teachers union. Here is candidate Obama,

“I will not allow my predispositions to stand in the way of making sure that our kids can learn,” Mr. Obama, who has previously said he opposes vouchers, said in a meeting with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “We’re losing several generations of kids, and something has to be done.”

Like most things with Obama, it was Just Words. Yes, it was laughable then, but is not so funny to these Washingon DC parents and students who are stuck in underperforming and miserable schools.


Allah at Hot Air offers some perspective on Obama’s priorities,

Just a reminder: Obama’s proposed budget this year was $3.6 trillion, and yet somehow he couldn’t find $18 million in there to keep this program going.
