You assume too much. I am not a democrat. In fact, I'm still a registered republican. I quit associating myself with the party after 9/11 and after I saw the massive propaganda campaign that was turning otherwise intelligent people in to brainwashed idiots.
I can agree with most of what you said, but the biggest difference between the parties is that the Democrats do no have the a propaganda system that can even compare to the republicans. We're not even in the same ballpark. The republicans have brainwashed millions more people than the democrats could ever hope for.

That Jackasses kids go to a private school.
He really is a massive turd.
every president has to have his kids in a secured and easily-guarded setting while attending school......apparently all the other presidents are massive turds too, because their kids have also went to private schools.
And do any of you realize just how scary the thought of him doing so , actually is?

As 80% of private schools are "Christian / Catholic" based. I am betting on a new campaign of "Separation of Church (Christian that is) and Education regardless if it is "private" or not. Along with homeschooling, they will defiantly come gunning for that.
Yes, I did watch it. It wasn't edited, the audio was a bit choppy though. I sat through over an hour and a half.

I SEE no one watched this panel discussion.
Did YOU watch it?
Because it's apparent to me that, from the incessant chopping and editing the WH did, that they could have made it sound like he was saying whatever they wanted him to sound like he was saying, regardless of whether he actually said it or not.
Which leads me to conclude that everything that is presented to us as "Obama's words" in this discussion is exactly what we are meant to hear. Nothing is out of context except maybe the natural progression of the context itself. It's actually quite difficult to watch.
If they went that far out of their way to ensure that everyone understood exactly what they were talking about, and then still screwed it up...
Education Secretary Backs Public Boarding Schools: 'Certain Kids We Should Have 24/7'
By Penny Starr | May 12, 2015 | 3:03 PM EDT
“One idea that I threw out … is the idea of public boarding schools,” Duncan said at the National Summit on Youth Violence Prevention in Crystal City, Va. “That’s a little bit of a different idea--a controversial idea--but the question is do we have some children where there’s not a mom, there’s not a dad, there’s not a grandma, there’s just nobody at home?”
“There’s just certain kids we should have 24/7 to really create a safe environment and give them a chance to be successful,” he said.
Obama: A private school education leads to "an anti-government ideology."

This statement is just so completely wrong, I can't resist editing the quote to reflect the truth...
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t dispute that the free market is the greatest producer of wealth in history -- it has lifted billions of people out of poverty.
That should read:
We won't dispute that the free market is the greatest producer of wealth in history - it has forced billions of people into poverty and transferred the fruits of their efforts into the hands of a relative few.
That is all, have a nice day.
