President Obama’s in Brooklyn today, where he visited P-TECH high school:

Obama brings coolness wherever he goes, including to math classrooms:

Yuk yuk yuk!

https://twitter.com/markknoller/status/393835520083501057

Yeah, we know he’s “pretty lost” when it comes to “math stuff.” That puts him in the market for a lesson:

https://twitter.com/vj44/status/393832845606547456

Oy.

https://twitter.com/Tark31/status/393833787076771840

Valerie was tickled by the photo, but she probably should’ve kept it to herself. See, it only serves to reinforce the fact that President Obama doesn’t understand how math works.

It’s certainly not doing the Obama administration any favors, but it’s proving to be a gold mine for snarkage:

  • Michelle ✓classified

    I just noticed something for the first time and I imagine others have pointed this out long before me… Valerie’s Twitter handle is vj44 ?? As in the 44th President? That’s very telling, super creepy, over-the-top and utterly presumptuous. Valerie, just because Barry can’t visit the little boy’s room without first soliciting your opinion, that doesn’t make YOU the 44th President. #GetOverYourself

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Power behind the throne, don’tchaknow. Probably the only woman on earth Sasquatch is afraid of.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        Unfortunately, I get all that – to a super creepy level, she’s Barry’s go to pal. But to assign the 44 to herself? Over the top arrogant.

        • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

          That’s her in a nutshell. Never did research her, but then the publicly available info would most likely be heavily redacted.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Oh, you bet it is! I would like to know her full back story, specifically what experience and qualifications she has to be in the position of the closest adviser to a sitting President. From what I understand, she practically lives at the White House – is there during the days for work, but also spends many evenings in the residential quarters eating dinner with the Obama’s. I believe her salary is something like $300K/yr, she has a personal driver, apparently has all her meals provided at the White House or expensed when she eats out – all if it on our dime…we kinda have a right to know who this woman is and what makes her so important. She’s a sneaky, scandalous little weasel that has her paws (and influence) on everything in DC.

          • HanaFiveO

            She was his mentor/political mommy assassin in Chicago.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Yeah, just took a quick look at her bio again – saw nothing but a handful of top jobs at a few corporations, banks, etc. Has a B.A. (not impressive) and a law degree. Has NO military experience (even as a civilian), NO foreign policy experience, NO elected official experience – WHAT exactly qualifies her to be the person the President of the United States of America leans on to make decisions?

          • Guest
          • HanaFiveO

            Besides the fact that he trusts her and had described her as his political conscience…. nada.

            We have the right, but do we have the power? You know as well as I do that we will have to make them disgorge the info and, while I would be happy to sacrifice my fair young body in defense of my kin, I’m a little long in the tooth to assault a taco stand, let alone the Spite House. I’m beginning to think it would take immediate personal peril to wring truth from this bunch.

            Here’s a partial list with some salaries. Outrageous. WTH is a “Car Czar”? And something called an “Urban Czar” makes $150K/yr…what is an Urban Czar? Not on the list, I know there’s also a “Black Education Czar”, but why? And is there a “White Education Czar”? There is, or at least used to be, a Gitmo Closure Czar…if he/she is still employed, they oughta be laid off.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            So, a list of O’s (or Valerie’s) special friends. Got it. I saw this a few years ago, but wondered if it had gotten bigger. My gosh he, and they, must think we are idiots to have re-elected him.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            To be slightly fair, Bush had 33 Czars, triple the highest number of Czars from any President. And Barry has only a few more than that, the only difference being, Bush had 33 Czars in 8 years, Barry had more than that before the end of his first term. I can’t find anything about any new ones in the past year or so, but I sure would like a complete list of active ones along with their salaries.

          • Ken Alan Draper

            the U.S. has more CZARs then Imperial Russia had through out it’s history.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Not sure what happened with Bush, but the history of this country having Czars – each President has posted less than 10, Bush tripled that with 33. Obama went a few higher. WTF do these people do other than draw a six figure paycheck from the taxpayer?

            It is the libbie way. All the slimy pasts have to be sanitized. Valerie was the one who got that commie Van Jones as a WH czar. She was part of that Chicago machine. Without her, the current POTUS would still be a nobody.

    Mr. President, if you add “infinity” of unicorns to a national problem, there is no solution. You have to actually propose something. Like, I will cut taxes on the job creators. See? That makes more jobs.

    President Obama: “I liked math, but then it started to get harder. And so that can be frustrating.”

    How much math did President Obama take? We don’t know, of course. How much economics did he take? We don’t know, of course. If he didn’t take at least one semester of economics with calculus, then he has no practical knowledge of either economics or mathematics.

    Speaking personally, I didn’t find math to get harder until advanced calculus and partial differential equations. These are math-major- and physics-major-type classes. I would wager a hefty sum that President Obama has never met a Laplace Transform, much less a partial differential equation. If not, then it can be concluded that “The Smartest Man In The Room”® found math getting harder ‘way before differential equations and probably before calculus.

    It should be noted that Ronald Reagan was an economics major. His understanding of both mathematics and economics was immeasurably deeper than that of President Obama. Yet Reagan is derided as unintelligent and President Obama lauded as brilliant by the left.
