Quote of the Day - President Obama Edition Part 3

“I’ll be blunt with you, The answer is no right now.” He went on to say that despite making great strides over the past several years, “The D.C. public school systems are struggling.”

They are “terrific individual schools” in the city, but the larger problem remains for parents who can’t choose to send their children to school where they please, he said. “They should be getting the same quality education for their kids as everybody else, and we don’t have that yet.”

President Obama on why he doesn't send his children to DC public schools.  Now, personally, I don't have a problem with the children of a sitting president attending private schools.  The safety issues alone is reason enough.  I also think that as young children who didn't run for any political office, they deserve privacy and that will be better attained at a private school than at a public school. 

What I have a real problem with is him allowing the sucessful voucher program to be terminated.

I may stop down for a bit. I do want to take pictures of how the mall is left more than anything else. I wonder if they will clean up after themselves.

I'm planning to cover the protest over at RK. I'd check it out for myself, but I live too far away to show up in D.C. on a regular basis. If you do take some photos, I hope you'll share them with us on your blog!

I'm sure there will be some great photo opportunities... a lot of whack left-wingers will be there.

just a sample.......

I noticed that some of the buses are free. I guess that is the way to get a bigger crowd; send them for nothing. They even have drinks and snacks on the buses for them as well. Quite a few churches are bringing people as well.

I put in the zip code for the town I grew up in. None from that immediate area. Although that is not a shock. I grew up in center right area of New England.
