Barack Obama Takes Daughters to $20K/Yr School in Five SUV Motocade

Barack Obama, The One Dad, took his two daughters to school Monday morning. It was the first day of school and parents across the country were doing exactly the same thing.

Maybe nor exactly the same way, though. The One Dad and daughters were driven to school in a five-SUV motorcade with a complete Secret Service detail courtesy of U.S. taxpayers.

Sunlen Miller of ABC News filed this report for Political Radar:

Barack Obama dropped his two daughters off at school Monday -- in a motorcade complete with a Secret Service detail -- for their first day back to school in Chicago.

The Democratic nominee, dressed in work out clothes and a baseball hat, held the hands of his daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven, as they walked, toting backpacks, into the University of Chicago Laboratory School.

The elite charter school costs between $15,000 to $20,000 a year in tuition. Michelle Obama currently sits on the board.

After dropping his kids off at school, Obama hit the gym and then flew off to Michigan for a day of campaigning.

"My kids started school today," Obama told the Flint crowd. "Took my 5th grader and my 2nd grader to class. The 5th grader didn't really want me to go up to the classroom but I went. She's still Daddy's girl."
What a great Dad. He can do it all - serve in the U.S. Senate, run for the office of President of the United States of America, workout at the gym, and chauffeur his kids to school. Is there anything this man, this superman can't do? Is there a woman out there who could do that?

Uhhh, yeah! Like, just about every mother and they do it every school day not just the first one. Like Councilwoman/Mayor/Governor/wife and mother Sarah Palin has done for years.

Oh, hey! Could it be that Barry O, The One Dad, was trying to prove he is as good a parent as Gov Sarah Palin? Barry O certainly doesn't have to demonstrate parenting skills to connect with voters, certainly not when his girls attend the same kind of school to which the average American family has access. Every low income kid in my neighborhood attend elite charter schools for which their parents eagerly spend $15,000 - $20,000 a year because they have so much money to invest in their children's education.

And with backpacks.

It does my heart good the truly average American side of Barack Obama.

Because Michelle Obama sits on the board of the prestigious and elite University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, do the Obamas pay the big bucks? If not, who does?

You mean to tell me little Angel's didnt fly down from the heavens and escort the Messiah's daughters in the front gates?

The Messsiah did it all on his own?

Indigo Red said...

Yes, he did! Well, with some help from the Secret Service and a side entrance.

With Obama's talks on education, it should be noted that less than 55% of students graduate from high school in Chicago.

Gee...ain't it wonderful the Obamas can afford to send their daughters to private school instead of public?

Indeed it is, Word. Every American should have that same choice of schooling. But, to people like the Obamas, that wouldn't be elite anymore.
