Greta Van Susteren allows toe sucker Dick Morris to relay his wet dream about massive Republican victories in November which end up in dismantling our public education system in favor of charter schools and vouchers for private schools and as he touts on his web site, no surprise here, the demise of the dreaded teacher's union.

Van Susteren also allows people being sick of the problems with the Federal government, Arizona and illegal immigration, oil drilling, higher taxes (which just got lowered under Obama for most Americans but they fail to note), Bernie Madoff, the financial meltdown, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Department of the Interior and Congress' low approval ratings and every other Republican meme that's out there for Morris to twice segue into his privatize education because everyone hates government nonsense.

Here's Morris' anti-union diatribe he was referencing if you've got the stomach for it.


A perfect storm is brewing for the nation’s schools and the teachers’ unions that have them in a stranglehold. Voter anger at the socialist, big government solutions of the Obama Administration and its Democratic lookalikes in state capitals throughout the country is about to combine with massive education funding shortfalls brought on by the unions’ waste of taxpayer money.

These forces will combine in November, 2010 to force gigantic changes in school financing and governance, leading to the prospect of genuine school choice for the poor and middle class as the rich have always had.

Just as a Republican landslide in November will engulf and extinguish Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress, so it will sweep away the party’s power at the state level. State houses in at least ten states are likely to change parties and dozens of legislative chambers will see Republican majorities, many for the first time in decades. The teachers union will be swept from power along with its Democratic allies.

And it gets worse from there. He asks people to join the "revolution" and sign up for his movement. So Dick Morris is building a "revolution" now huh? That's rich. About as rich as Dick Armey building one. More pissed off teabaggers is about all he's doing to get and they're no army, unless you use ClusterFox math for their numbers that show up at protests.

I wonder who Dick Morris thinks is going to educate those that can't afford to go to private schools? It's more likely he's just interested in destroying any union that exists since they donate and organize for Democrats.

Since Dick Morris is predicting tragic results for Democrats at the polls this year, it might be safe to say that if he and his buddy Bill Kristol over at ClusterFox are predicting anything, a safe bet would probably be on the other side. Those two are wrong about everything.
