When the Going Gets Tough, Obama Leaves Town

Posted by on Oct 25, 2013 at 7:29 am

As his signature legislation crumbles around him and his snotty minions become more belligerent, the failed president decides it’s time to flee Washington.

President Barack Obama will visit an experimental New York City vocational school to praise it as a model of a public-private partnership.

Obama will deliver a speech and meet with students Friday at Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-Tech), which was born out of cooperation between the city’s Department of Education, the City University of New York and IBM.

Students attend the schools for six years, from grades 9-14, meaning they do two years of college work in addition to the four years of high school, which have a heavy emphasis on computer science. Obama mentioned the school during his State of the Union speech earlier this year.

Did they say computer science? Maybe he can recruit some of the kids there to help fix his shitty ObamaCare website. But in reality, this is all just cover for his main agenda.

After his event at the school, Obama is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for Democratic congressional candidates.

Of course.

    “Grades 9-14” is the first admission I’ve seen in print that it now takes two additional years to produce an educational result roughly equal to what used to be 12 grades. Add in kindergarten and the soon-to-be mandatory two years of pre-school, and you have quite an establishment there.

    Remember “Twenty years of schooling and they put you on the day shift”? In your dreams. Free intern, temp, ACA part-time, or night shift if you’re really lucky.
