"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."President Obama on March 28, 2011:
...Too much testing makes education boring for kids, he said.[...]Many commenters thought that tonight's speech by the President concerning our Kinetic Military Action in Libya was a pretty good one but spoken as though he were bored.
At the same time, Obama said, schools should be judged on criteria other than student test performance, including attendance rate.[...]
"And young people do well in stuff that they're interested in," Obama said. "They're not going to do as well if it's boring."
And, to be frank, his attendance rate has be really, really poor. He also doesn't appear to get along well with others either.
Reached for comment, Ghadafi could only say while wiping a tear from his eye, "Very good speech, my son."
