Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year.
And then, all of a sudden when the scrutiny was beginning to build .... poof .... it disappears from the change.gov website. (thanks to Say Anything where I first saw this)
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.
Historically, this has been referred to as airbrushing.
The Obama campaign was caught doing this several times during the campaign, and that’s shady behavior from a campaign. But it was more than his campaign, it was also the press and his church who joined in on the act.
What really bothers me about this is now it is being done at an official governmental level through an official governmental outlet. Now, it has been mentioned that change.gov is little more that a campaign tool, but don’t forget that we the people own it and we shouldn’t have to put up with it.
