President Obama has proposed preschool for all, because a baby mind is a terrible thing to waste. A couple of Fox News assclowns (Which ones? Does it matter?) believe that preschool access is a government handout and yet another gift, like the gifts to women and minorities who only voted for Obama because he promised them a bunch of free shit — phones, contraception, food stamps and the like.
And of course, President Obama only supports pre-school for all so that he can breed a bunch of l’il Obamabots who will support him in 15 years, which might make sense in a world where President Obama can run for president again in 2036, but which is — spoiler alert! — not the world we live in:
On Friday, Fox Business host Stuart Varney and Fox News host Steve Doocy attacked preschool access as a government handout intended to extend “literally, the nanny state.” Varney echoed an argument used by former presidential candidate Mitt Romney that Obama won the election by giving “gifts” to women and minorities. Even though Obama cannot run for office a third time, the host warned the president is using preschool to entice a whole new generation of toddlers to support him when they’re eligible in 15 years.
Here’s the ludicrous money quote:
VARNEY: Look what the president is doing here, it’s a repeat performance of his campaign, which is you raise taxes on the rich and you offer all kinds of free stuff to people who will vote for you in the future. Free preschool education for 4-year-olds, it’s free, here it is. Hand out the goodies.
It’s a wonder these people can remember to breathe in and out every day.
