DC Elitist Alert: Richard Nixon’s daughter, Trisha, attended that school. I bet if you look at the kids presently in that school you’ll find a bunch of elitist Republican’s kids, too. School that serve the president tend to draw people of the same stature so don’t be surprised to find out there are children of both Republican and Democratic congressmen and women, cabinet members and so forth. You got a problem with school choice for people who can pay for it?
And that elitist President George W. Bush. He attended not one, but TWO elitist high schools after starting public school in Midland, Texas. Hissss! Booo! Elitist! As I recall, you are quite the George W. Bush fan. What? You never critiqued his “elitist” education? Shocking!
Pardon my noticing, but Presidential children have been going to that school since Teddy Roosevelt was in the White House. Heck, Roosevelt probably left an endowment to the school for its security. Bush’s Phillips Academy has $800 Million in endowments. But how quickly you change your tune after we pierce the surface of the skin. You think Obama is bad, get a load of Republican Ron Paul and lookie-lookie – he thinks a market based approach to gun control would be wiser. How conservative. Sees I heard the same thing right here on this forum – from me.
“Do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, metal detectors, X-ray scanners, and warrantless physical searches?” Paul wrote.
“We see this culture in our airports: witness the shabby spectacle of once proud, happy Americans shuffling through long lines while uniformed TSA agents bark orders. This is the world of government provided ‘security,’ a world far too many Americans now seem to accept or even endorse. School shootings, no matter how horrific, do not justify creating an Orwellian surveillance state in America.”
Make up your mind, Andy. First you complain that the school has security. But when you find out the security pre-existed before the Obama kids started attending, then you switch your complaint, “They’re elitist” even while you own political brand sends their kids to the same school. How were the peas?
