Another Countdown ?

As editorials are usually a combination of facts and opinion it is too early to comment on the specifics of a story about yet another Obama appointee, Kevin Jennings. He is deputy assistant secretary of education in charge of ‘ safe and drug free school programs’. Whether he is a czar is not specified. If the allegations contained in today’s Washington Times editorial are true, Mr. Jennings will go the way of Van Jones. Time will tell.

  1. Oh my goodness.

    Also, what kind of teacher has written a biography? Do you get the idea our country is being led by a group of maniacal narcissists?

  2. Our country has always been run by a certain degree of maniacal narcissism.

    Hell, the words “politician” and “narcissist” go hand in hand don’t they?

  3. “Hell, the words “politician” and “narcissist” go hand in hand don’t they?’

    Yes, and BO is the opening act for Khadfi Duck and Imadinnerjacket at the UN.

    The question is if this state of affairs is acceptable.

    It appears they are learning in the White House. Kevin Jennings just released this statement:
    “Twenty one years later I can see how I should have handled this situation differently. I should have asked for more information and consulted legal or medical authorities. Teachers back then had little training or guidance about this kind of thing. All teachers should have a basic level of preparedness. I would like to see the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools play a bigger role in helping to prepare teachers.”

    Whoever wrote this for him is taking a totally different approach than some of the other non-vetted appointees have taken. It still shows either a complete lack of vetting or a disregard for people’s backgrounds by this administration. And again it was someone else’s fault which is another theme of this White House.
