It is absolute insanity and a sad example of what this country has been reduced to by fringe fanatics that don't live in reality.

Some of them have real positions of power, which makes it more frightening.

Many of them have positions of power, and they are using it to halt Obama's attempts at getting anything done, so that they win back the control that they lost over the last 3 years. Here's an article by Jeremy Scahill from rebelreports.com about the Congressman that called for Obama's Green Czar to resign:



By Jeremy Scahill

Rep. Mike Pence, an Indiana Republican whose name has been mentioned as a potential GOP presidential candidate (and who is not sure if he believes in evolution), led the witch-hunt to force the resignation of White House Green Jobs advisor, Van Jones, over comments Jones made years ago and a 9/11 “truth” petition Jones signed which he said he did not read in its entirety. Jones apologized for some of his comments, which were made before he took his job with the Obama administration and said the petition “certainly does not reflect my views now or ever.”



Late Saturday, Jones resigned. “On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me,” Jones said in a statement released Sunday. “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.” (For a very good analysis of this story, read this).



On Friday, Pence, who describes himself as “Christian, Conservative, Republican, in that order,” said Jones’s “extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate.” Beyond the obvious here (the hate-filled rhetoric we see every day from racist, right-wing wackos, including those in public office), it is an interesting comment considering that Pence is an extremist right-wing evangelical Christian who has taken thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Blackwater’s owner, Erik Prince. Prince has also donated to Pence’s Political Action Committee “Principles Exalt a Nation.” In December 2007, three months after Blackwater operatives gunned down 17 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad’s Nisour Square, Pence and his Republican Study Committee, which serves “the purpose of advancing a conservative social and economic agenda in the House of Representatives,” organized a gathering to welcome Prince to Washington. “Not only has Mr. Princepersonally been targeted by partisan warfare repeatedly over the past months, but the use of contracting throughout the government has been under attack by this Congress,” Pence’s committee’s statement said.

Should Pence resign for cavorting with and accepting campaign cash from a man who allegedly “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe,” in the words of a former employee? Oh, right. Those are apparently positive attributes in Pence’s view.

My kids school won't play the video but if they did my kids would stand and do an about face sharply... Obama's original message was political... write an essay about how much you love President Obama, use some quotes from my speeches if you like... bull fucking shit... that's brainwashing...I thought it was against liberal values to worship in school?

You're an idiot. And you're buying into the bullshit. The president wants to talk to kids about the importance of education. That is not indoctrination any more than George W. was indoctrinating kids when he asked them to raise money and give money to Afghan kids. Please say what you really think. I have a feeling it is more about who he is than what he says.

The original Dept. of Education lesson plan had a public worship session for all children to bow down and praise president Obama. Oh my lord how may we be of service to you? Let me count the ways by plagiarizing some of your speeches.

Even if there was something about helping the president, why is it a problem helping the president to get the word out about the importance of an education and personal responsibility? This isn't about policies or politics.
