Wasn't it just a short time ago that Obama said that getting the economy going again was his biggest priority?

So... given that he has now taken to talking about education, does this mean he thinks he has gotten the economy back on track? Or... like a kid with ADHD, does he just have trouble concentrating?

And as far as his comments on education, what is with his arguing that kids need to spend more time in school? Who is he trying to impress with those comments?

Yeah, I can count on one hand the number of parents nodding their heads in agreement, that their kids would be oh-so-much smarter if only they spend another two months in school. And there is probably some support from parents who know better but figure yaer round school alleviates the need for them to pay for summer day care.

To everybody else, this sounds like just another kooky idea from an ivory tower theorist... long in theory, short in common sense.
