And then to forward their research to the Obama campaign.
Imagine the hell that would break loose if a public school teacher asked students to do do opposition research exclusively directed at undermining Obama's re-election. Can you just hear the howling from the perpetually aggrieved? It would be front page news coast to coast and on every evening newscast.
Apparently it's no big deal when a teacher uses his class to focus solely on researching and disseminating weak points of Republican candidates.
Of course this is nothing new for public schools where Obama indoctrination isn't unheard of. At least they are not forcing the students to perform the Hopey Changey Obama song.
But I'd like to give the teacher the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he didn't include Obama in the assignment because he didn't want to his students to be contaminated by the knowledge of Obama's radical past and his associations with Rev. Wright, Father Pfleger, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko. Discovering Obama is a closet Marxist from a corrupt Chicago political tradition might shake the young student's faith in democracy. After all, if they knew who and what Obama really was, they would want to know why Americans voted for him in the first place!
