Jim Greer Spoke GOP Hate in Public School!

Quicknote: Crossposted today's blog on Dkos and made the Rec List. Go Seminoles!

While we have been focused on the sheer stupidity of equating the president talking about the importance of education to "indoctrinating" children with his "socialist agenda", or the fact that W. and Reagan himself interjected conservative trash when speaking to school children, we now know that local-boy turned Florida GOP chair clown Jim Greer has himself had no qualms about interjecting GOP hate speech while addressing school children:

Snippet from Scott Maxwell:

There once was a political operative who loved to tell crowds he had a simple way of explaining to children the difference between Republicans and Democrats.

"Republicans get up and go to work," he would tell his son. "Democrats get up and go down to the mailbox to get their checks."

This man not only talked to his son about Republican values, he went into public-school classrooms and talked about them as well.

That man is Jim Greer — the same Jim Greer who, as chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, just threw a nationwide hissy fit, claiming that the classroom is no place for politics and Barack Obama's "indoctrination."

One Seminole County mother, Barbara Wells, remembers the day Greer spoke to her son's sixth-grade class. "My son said he made some sort of Hillary Clinton joke," she recalled.

But you know what? Wells didn't pitch a fit.

She didn't call up the local TV station to scream about Republican indoctrination.

Instead, she advised her son: "Whatever you are told in life, remember there are two sides to every story."

In fact, Wells didn't even think much about Greer's foray into her son's classroom until she saw him on TV complaining about Obama.

There's no longer any question: Greer is a hypocrite.

Digg-link for this Sentinel story:

TO sum up, in Greer-land:

1. The President of the United States talking to school children about hard work and the importance of staying in school is dangerous and intolerable.

2. GOP chair talking to school children while smearing Democrats and Hillary Clinton, however, is something that every school child needs to hear.

3. Can't understand why more people aren't upset about #1.

What an ass-clown. He has embarrased Seminole County for many years, so the Florida GOP logically decided to promote him. In his short tenure we have him issuing fradulant credit cards and now making an ass of himself for the nation to once again shake its head at what the hell is going with the politicians in my state.
