Obama has an inspiration — cut certain oil tax subsidies. Brilliant! So why on earth hasn’t he got it done? Every time Obama says “here’s my next brilliant idea” he’s accusing himself of total incompetence.Obama says that some students are afflicted with (Zounds!) 10 year old textbooks. (Shakespeare, maybe?) There again is the intellectual poseur vs the thinker. Intellectuals want the latest, dumbest-downed books.As if anything whatsoever (anything!) would be better about the schools if everyone had this year’s textbook. Pathetic.
