Half-Truths and Lies

don't even begin to describe Obama's acceptance speech.

In case you were lucky enough to miss it Thursday:



I was cussing at him all the way through it. Lies on top of lies and not really saying anything of note.

Blaming the Republicans for Obama's own shortcomings doesn't explain why he is the lousy president he is. It's because HE is actually one of them.

For example, the Republicans had NOTHING to do with Arne Duncan's "reform" policies which are wrecking public school districts around the country:

He declared his opposition to “firing teachers or kicking students off financial aid,” and proclaimed, “no child should have her dreams deferred because of a crowded classroom or a crumbling school.” But he and his education secretary, Arne Duncan, have praised the witch-hunting and firing of teaches across the country, promoted charter schools and other schemes to dismantle and privatize public education, and reduced access to college loans for millions of young people.

Just this week, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities published a study showing that 17 states have cut per-student education spending by more than 10 percent since 2008, and local school districts have slashed over 328,000 jobs.

That is only one of many lies in the speech.
