The education of Barack Obama. It’s the end of the world. The many friends of Lawrence Henry. Don’t cry for Senate Republicans. Plus more.

Ayers, or really what we are talking about is what Ayers stands for, doesn’t matter as much now as it will matter when Obama is President. Education is something that touches the average American’s lives whether they have children or not. It is more tangible than knowing a domestic terrorist. Remember, all politics is local. Voters buy overpriced fundraising products, volunteer at school, and worry that their own kids are not losing the education race. The number one thing most parents sacrifice for is what they are told their kid needs to be educated. The majority of voters still believe that it is never a waste in putting money in education.
McCain has to prove them wrong, and the issue is blatantly in front of him. How many in the public would be willing to buy a Ford Focus for a Mercedes price? The scandal of Obama’s Annenberg Challenge management is that the children involved didn’t even get a pot to piss in.
Educational philosophy and the economic issues it involves are much larger than Ayers alone. I don’t think Obama will place him in a highly visible position, but will place the philosophy in one.
What exactly are each candidates positions on education? I know Obama wants to make it a priority by introducing universal preschool, not cutting spending and possibly increasing it right away. He would have to, because it takes a few years for indoctrination to happen. Even Palin has talked about increasing the amount of money we spend.
Here in the state of Michigan, education is our single largest budget item, our teachers one of the higher paid in the nation, and yet our largest city’s public school system is in shambles. What would Obama suggest we do, hire a consultant such as Ayers, to spend more and produce zero? I know our collective math and logical reasoning skills are bad, but nonexistent?
Ayers matters, but he will matter more than in a character flaw
in Obama. By the way, if Obama doesn’t care about a live baby,
how much do you really thing he cares about someone such as
Ayers? Obama is a cold, callous, calculating man.

Let us accept every Obama excuse for his teaming up with Ayers to accomplish Ayers’ goals. Okay, so now Obama by his own definition is ignorant, clueless, and incompetent. Let us shout this from the rooftops. By itself, that should rule him out of contention for the Presidency. But something horrible lies much deeper underneath the surface of this relationship. And this ugly horrible truth underlies the whole premise of Democrat politics.
Democrats for years have used the pretense of good intentions and phony compassion to sway peoples’ hearts, and fool us into letting them do things that cause us serious harm. By playing on our emotions, they get people to separate their hearts from their minds. And by playing on compassion, they define themselves as the only true source of good. By default that turns anyone who opposes them into some caricature of evil. And these characterizations are intentional.
Watch how it plays out. They caused this mess, yet they are literally drooling over the opportunity that this mess, which they caused, is giving them to gain more power to implement more messes. Because Democrats have people hoodwinked into thinking of them as good, it is easy for them to proclaim innocence and escape true blame. Because Democrats have people hoodwinked into thinking of their enemies as evil, it is easy for them to create scapegoats out of their victims. And the Democrats villainize these scapegoats, regardless of innocence.
Not very good behavior is it? But it has played out time and again. You must suffer, and be kept suffering for the Democrats to gain ever more power over you. And we are duped into giving them this power, because they are going to protect us from these evil villains.
If you still have your eyes closed, ask yourself this: Democrat programs are always breaking and falling apart all around us, and the people, whom these programs are supposed to be protecting and saving are always getting worse off, growing more miserable and larger in number day after day, yet: When have the Democrats ever allowed, or even joined in with, people who are trying to fix the programs? Instead of being allowed to fix programs so that they can keep on functioning, or actually retooling the programs to help out the people who are hurt, these helpmates are demonized as trying to destroy the programs and intentionally hurt the people.
Now, back to Ayers. Unlike most Democrats, Ayers is open about the evil he intends to wreak upon us. Yes, he is deluded into thinking that we are evil, and he is trying to help us achieve the good he still sees in Cuba, and the good he sees in Chavez’s new Venezuela. But most of us are not so far gone as to realize that Ayers’ delusions do not make his goals any less evil. And he makes it very clear that his current methods are little different in the desired impact than his old methods of destroying and killing to scare people into doing what he wants.
Obama, and his fellow Democrats, should not be allowed to hide
behind their good intentions. And their intentional alliance with
evil like Ayers proves the falseness of their good intentions.
You cannot work together with evil, to achieve the same goals,
without having to face the fact that your goals are achieving
evil. The only way somebody can come out of that experience
unrepentant is if they are just as much deluded as Ayers

Re: R. Andrew Newman’s Time of Sifting May Be at Hand:
Mr. Newman’s article had to be written by someone; but in my time on this earth I have learned one very valuable lesson. The state of things never turns out to be as bad as “they” say it will; nor is it ever as good as “they” predict.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
