Breakfast Scramble: Who Knew the DOE Had a SWAT Team?

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Leaders lead, Dumbo shucks, from Daily Caller [1]:

A cascade of bad economic and political news knocked President Barack Obama off his game today, and prompted him to revive his 2008-style criticism of his predecessor, and also to suggest that investors, consumers and even the media are responsible for today’s stalled economy.

The blame-game rhetoric – which pollsters say is counterproductive – came during the White House’s joint press conference with Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel. “It is just very important for folks to remember how close we came to complete disaster,” he told the watching TV cameras and reporters.

Barack Obama, a/k/a Dumbo loves to hog all the credit, but is never willing to take any blame.

Ms. Abedin, 35, is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.

NFL, the timing is too convenient and the Weiner will lie about anything.

Who knew, from Doug Powers @ Michelle Malkin [3]:

Dept. of Education Has SWAT Team Raid Home Over Student Loan Default; Update: OIG Agents, Not SWAT

If the government calls in a SWAT team because of a few dollars owed for student loans, what do you think they’ll do if you do not obey the Obamacare law to the letter?

The Department of Education was a SWAT team.   Why?    Disarm these fools before they hurt somebody.

What schools don’t teach, from Thomas Sowell, RCP [4]:

If banks try to act like they are real estate companies and hold on to a huge inventory of foreclosed homes, they are likely to lose money big time, as those homes deteriorate and cannot compete with homes marketed by real estate companies with far more experience and expertise in this field.

But if teachers fail to educate children, they don’t lose one dime, no matter how much those children and the country lose by their failure. If the schools waste precious time indoctrinating children, instead of educating them, that’s the children’s problem and the country’s problem, but not the teachers’ problem.

The professional education class has no concept competency.
