Just so long as they don’t bring it into the classrooms…
As many government workers have discovered (much to their dismay, chuckle), politicians lie to and cheat them also. IL guv Pat Quinn recently got booed at the state fair by unions angry that their pensions are in jeopardy.
As the folk tale goes, “You knew I was a snake when you put me in your pocket.”
It was interesting to see a piece yesterday on Fox about Ryan’s high school government teacher. He loves Ryan but has never voted for him. It was a microcosm of the teachers’ politics. It is just a mystery that such people, who seem intelligent, can be so dull.
I have to include some of my own children here because 3 of the 5 are Obama voters. They are smart kids (the oldest 47) but don’t seem interested in economics. They hate Sarah Palin and all they seem interested in is social issues. You would think the debt did not exist.

To save the UAW he bailed out the car companies – so far (depending on what you read) with “our” stock we are $20 billion to $45 billion in the red – just for GM

I guess the ultimate cynic would say that their vote has already been cast for them… this was probably just telling them to get out to the polls to make sure no one else votes Repub.
How telling that the lettering on the window glass is gold.
Dan – Carl – as a prank it would be great putting a Romney sticker on the window – late at night of course ;-)
Bill – there aren’t any Romney stickers in Illinois. Resources are better deployed elsewhere.
