The very first conference I was ever invited to as a political blogger was hosted by State Policy Network and was focused on school choice. It is an issue that has long been important to me and should be to everyone in this country.
National School Choice week is a bipartisan effort to fight this very important battle for the future of this country and deserves far more attention than most others. Here is a list of some of the events going on the week of January 22-28 this year. Do try to attend one if it’s in your area.
The support on the conservative side for this has always been open, though it still isn’t given the prominence it needs. There has also been a lot of support from liberals in America (especially in inner-city communities) for it and that gets ignored at the national level.
The more you learn about the horrors that at-risk students in this country are forced to endure because far-away bureaucrats have decided their parents shouldn’t have options, the more you will be inspired to get involved.
When dealing with a president who has a record that has been, at best, a train wreck, what are his unquestioning sycophants to do?
On issues from air pollution to contraception, President Barack Obama has broken sharply with liberal activists and come down on the side of business interests and social conservatives as he moves more to the political middle for his re-election campaign.
A lovely story indeed. And thoroughly believable if you’ve suffered repeated head trauma.
The cut from whole cloth fantasy that President Obama could even look towards the center is one that you will see repeated ad nauseam by his desperate advocates in the MSM over the next several months.
When his cheerleaders can’t think quickly enough to create a fairy tale they will simply lie.
These poor dears are unaware of the fact that they don’t completely control the narrative any more. They are running with their old playbook, which involves the repetition of a falsehood until everyone believes it. True, the still have some pretty big mouthpieces, as well as the bully pulpit that the incumbent always enjoys, but the rise of new media has weakened the stranglehold (see: Anthony Weiner).
If there is a glaring weakness that can be exploited by conservative activists in 2012, this blind cockiness may be it.
