Choice for thee but not for ye.

You think these two moms would like an opportunity to have their children sit next to Sasha and Malia Obama in school?

We realize there are some other pressing legislative matters currently but the Republicans have traditionally done an outstanding job of punting on the issue of school choice/vouchers, an issue, unlike pandering on immigration reform, can make real inroads with minorities.

Having said that we give all the credit in the world to the Democrats who have been active of late on the school voucher front by hosing over Washington D.C. schoolchildren by killing Washington D.C.’s Opportunity Scholarship program in a recent spending bill.

When the teachers’ union cracks the whip, the Democrats make the trip.

B-Daddy has more here.

And some more of our thoughts on school choice and vouchers, here.

Dean, thanks for the link. This is absolutely the right issue with which to reach out to minorities.
