Education? Sure. If that means pouring more bad money after good and never demanding results, liberals really do love children and care about their education. But it's THEIR policies (the [not so] Great Society) initiatives that decimated the two-parent family in the black community which essentially institutionalized poverty, illegitimacy, and dropping out. John's got a winner on all five points this time around. Well said and all true.

DC had one of the most successful voucher experiments in the nation.

Pres. Obama tried to deny it funding in 2008 when he took office, but was foiled by Republicans in Congress. He tried again in 2012.

On TH, we allow all sorts of trash, but that is the price for lack of censorship. But, regarding education, I was interested in how Washington DC is failing to educate the public school kids. They graduate so ignorant about America and Government that they are almost guaranteed to vote for Obama.
Liberalism is like a restaurant with ugly decor, terrible food, overflowing toilets and roaches scurrying across the floor -- that stays packed every night. Sure, liberals may be sanctimonious, mean spirited and advocate policies that don't work, but you can't help but admire the excellence of their public relations network. They can laud themselves for courage because they take a stand everyone they know agrees with, pat themselves on the back for their compassion as they maliciously insult someone that disagrees with them and congratulate themselves for their charitable behavior as they give other people's money away. Liberal mythology is one...
