ASBURY PARK, N.J. A central New Jersey elementary school that was renamed in honor of President Barack Obama last year will soon be closed.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

"Bangs Avenue" sounds enticing.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Hopefully, a foreshadow of 2012!

Obama High's debate team:

"Now let me be clear...I...I...um...uh...now let me be clear.  I strongly condemn the affirmative in the strongest possible terms, and I am closely monitoring their arguments.  Let me be clear on this."

It is very advisable to examine and dissect the men of science for once, since they for their part are quite accustomed to laying bold hands on everything in the world, even the most venerable things, and taking them to pieces.

Ashbury park is really a complete joke of a school district that spends bucketloads of someone else's money and gets nothing out of it.

The namesake fits, I suppose.

My father who really cannot stand Obama got a huge kick out of this. He commented, "now if we can only get Oprah's schools in South Africa to follow suit!!"

To me, this is a little funny, but I'm not going to wish the SA schools to close.  They are actually doing a great thing.

He was being facetious, not really serious.  He doesn't like Oprah at all.

http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/02/nj_per-pupil_spending_increase.html

People who spend $27,476 per pupil to educate their kids, while achieving reading proficiency of about 15% of students in the 5th grade. I might add that 85% of that money is freeloaded from the state.

That budgetary table should make any honest hardworking american very angry.

Dude... I think your father might be a racist. You should get him checked.
