I am coming to the uncomfortable conclusion Obama may be the worst president this country has ever had, and not because of the reasons the Tea Party types give. He does what they want anyway in the name of "post-partisanship."
He's a fucking disaster:
“Race to the Top,” Obama’s signature program to privatize education through withholding of funds to states that fail to establish an alternative charter system and transform teachers into temporary workers, is set for a great corporate leap forward. States that craft their curriculums to suit corporate priorities will get additional funding; those that do not, will be punished. “We’ll reward schools that develop new partnerships with colleges and employers, and create classes that focus on science, technology, engineering, and math – the skills today’s employers are looking for to fill jobs right now and in the future.” Obama is an education gangster, hired muscle for the corporate class.
Gangster is right. Our country is overrun with gangsters. Al Capone and his ilk have nothing on the crooks who are running wild in Washington and in the state legislatures when they and their backers ought to be rounded up and jailed.
