Michele Bachman Crazy Overdrive: “The Constitution Does Not Guarantee You An Education”

“The Constitution does not specifically enumerate nor does it give to the federal government the role and duty to superintend over education. That historically has been held by the parents and by local communities and by state government. To put that into the federal government as we saw a Department of Education in the late 1970s has eviscerated the constitutional understanding that the control of education truly lies with the parents.”- Rep. (and fucking loon) Michele Bachmann

Yesterday at Sen. Jim DeMint’s Palmetto (Bug) Freedom Forum Michele Bitchman as a way to save the government money that if elected president she would drastically pare back the federal government, possibly by doing away with the U.S. Department of Education.

Here’s news for Bachmann and other Tea Party budget crazies.  The constitution also does not guarantee you the farm subsidy’s  or tax breaks that you seem to enjoy taking so much or a goverment balanced budget either   So making draconian cuts to services that actually help people and hurt the country as a whole to try to look good in the feeble minded minds of of uneducated Tea Party lemmings is not a constitutional right either.
