Elitest Leftist: Parents aren't smart enough to raise them (their children) very effectively

Harwood: Opponents of Obama's School Invasion 'Not Smart Enough' To Raise Their Children



A new high-tech Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. Racism. And parents too dumb to raise their children.



That was how NBC sought to explain away opposition to Pres. Obama's planned speech to schoolchildren.



Andrea Mitchell narrated a segment on this morning's Today on the subject.



ANDREA MITCHELL: Other presidents have faced opposition. But experts say it's now more organized, from cable television to blogs, to Twitter. It's gone viral.



RON BROWNSTEIN: There are mechanisms for conservatives to reach other conservatives and to keep them in a state of agitation. And that is much more developed than it was even when Bill Clinton was president.



MITCHELL: A partisan echo chamber making it much harder for any president to make his voice heard.



Yes, let's have some sympathy for the president. Everyone knows it's been virtually impossible for him to get any air time in this hostile MSM environment. And isn't it unfair that only certified conservatives are permitted to open Twitter accounts, have blogs, or go on MSNBC?



Then it was on to John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times.



JOHN HARWOOD: In this case you've got a lot of people who are truly agitated about [the president's school speech] and I think partly that's the polarization continuing over time. And partly it's simply because Barack Obama is a different kind of president: first African-American, international elements of his background. But I gotta tell you, Amy [Robach], as somebody who's covered Washington for a long time, this is one of the most ridiculous controversies I've ever seen. So far as I can tell, the biggest danger to kids in this whole thing is that a lot of the parents complaining aren't smart enough to raise them very effectively. Because if you think that a president coming into your school, kids school, and saying work hard and stay in school is a danger to kids, you've got some problems.

Whaddya think!...Obama is going to read "death books" to the kiddies?



This reminds me of how evangelicals push ID and Creationism because they're afraid of thier children hearing what thier opposition has to say. Nothing new I guess then. I am sure that Obama's opposition has much less concern for what kids hear from Obama as they do making him look like some kind of modern day Socialist Svengali.

Hmmm. Yeah. Look at the behavior of a lot of kids. Wonder where they learned that. I'm glad the President with a Yale law degree has the time and interest to coach them.

And idiotic parents should be allowed to have the freedom to raise their children as they see fit...not the Government.

Yes, because children are their property. Just like their lawn and their car.

Or that his kids appear to be as normal as can be being the daughters of the President.

Maybe you, as an elitest progressive find so nlittle value in human life that you would equate it to objects...but God-fearing people see their children as gifts from God and of limitless value. You guys like children so much, you push murdering children. It was progressives that determined that humans of defective quality were unworthy of life. Yes, the left sure does value life.




The Government has no claim on human property.
