Scarborough to Earnest: How Can Obama Complain About Private Schools When He Went To One, His Children Attend One?

Yesterday at Georgetown University, commenting on private education, President Obama said that when the rich withdraw “from the commons,” it harms everyone.

“An anti-government ideology then disinvests from those common goods and those things that draw us together,” Obama said. “And that, in part, contributes to the fact that there’s less opportunity for our kids, all of our kids.”

On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarborough asks White House press secretary Josh Earnest how the president can complain about private schools hurting the “common good” while sending his own children to Washington’s most elite schools. “Is there a self critique against himself, the mistakes he’s made?”

Transcript below:

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Were you, I am sure you will be asked this question many times in your next press briefing, but the president was critical of people who went to private schools and sent their children to private schools and plays at private clubs and well every alarm should be going off. Do you have that clip? Let’s play that clip first.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Those who are better and better, more skilled, educated, luckier, having greater advantages are withdrawing from, sort of the commons, kids start going to private schools. Kids start working out at private clubs instead of the public parks. An anti-government idea old disinvests from those common goods and those things that draw us together, and that, in part, contributes to the fact that there is less opportunity for our kids.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Obviously, the man that said it, went to the best prep school in Hawaii and went to the best private colleges in the United States, his children who I don’t think it’s anybody’s business where they send their children, but if the president is going to criticize people who send their children to private schools he has to recognize, obviously, that he sends his children to the best schools in Washington, possibly America. How does he, is there a self critique against himself, the mistakes he’s made? What was the president trying to get at there?

JOSH EARNEST: Joe, the point the president was making is it’s important for us to recognize it as a country. We all have an interest in investing in the common benefits that our country has to offer.

EARNEST: His point is that even if you send your kids to private school, we all have an interest in making sure we have good high quality public schools available to everybody. It’s not that far from the White House that we do have some of the best public schools in the country over in Fairfax County, Virginia.

That is an example. That is also a more wealthy than average county in the country. That is an example of a society of a community that has invested in a common good for the benefit of their community and that’s the kind of thing that we need to see all across the country. Whether that is something as simple as investing in our national parks or local parks or public schools or making sure that every single American has access to quality health insurance.

JOE: So did the president consider sending its children to public schools? Again, none of my business unless he is criticizing Americans who send their children to private schools.

EARNEST: Again, I don’t think he’s criticizing sending people to private schools.

He’s suggesting all Americans need to keep in mind; it’s in our collective interest as a country and as citizens for us to invest in the common good, for us to invest and make sure we have good quality public schools available for everybody so that everybody has a fair shot. Everybody has a fair shake. Everybody has an equal opportunity to succeed and will let their ambition and hard work take them as far as it will carry them. That is what this country is all about. we start to lose sight of those basic values in this country the we start to retract into our own private clubs and schools and lose sight of the fact if we lose interest that we want those public schools to be good.

Ever notice that What Obama Really Meant is always very different from what he actually said?


Fairfax was the first county in the United States to reach a six-figure median household income and has the second-highest median household income of any local jurisdiction in the United States after neighbor Loudoun County.[4][5]

The county is home to the headquarters of intelligence agencies such as the Central Intelligence Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and National Reconnaissance Office, as well as the National Counterterrorism Center and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The county is also home to ten Fortune 500 companies, including three with Falls Church addresses.[6]

Victor Davis Hanson frequently talks about hypocritical liberal grandees who live lives of luxury and excess inside blue enclaves like Palo Alto and Malibu (where the only color that matters is the green in your wallet) while while exempting themselves from the rules they make for the rest of us.

I don’t begrudge anyone who can afford to live the Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless. I really don’t mind the hypocrisy all that much. I just don’t like it when they try to make different rules for me and you.

But what really pisses me off is when government officials lie.

I dare Josh Earnest to go on Megyn Kelly’s show and try to tell her that bullshit.

    God wouldn’t that be great??? Megyn doesn’t take anything from anyone. You should’ve watched it last night. She just doesn’t stop for a moment. And this is why Josh Earnest, the man with the paradoxical name, will never go on her show.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Intriguing that ‘Josh’ is advance warning his surname is to be taken tongue-in-cheek, isn’t it? Why would any talking head want to be called a synonym for “spoof”?

    • swanspirit says:

      Last night, when Megyn said( yelled ), ” Can you wait until they remove all the bodies from the train!?!” I wanted to hug her.

  2. DandyTIger says:

    I really and truly thought GWB was the worst president ever. And then add Cheney on top of that, and going to war to avenge “daddy” and you’ve got seriously fucked up government. I thought we couldn’t get any worse than that. I was wrong.

    • 49erDweet says:

      I feel your pain. With me it was Cahtah and his 100 day WH siesta. But I was wrong. Something my honey never thought she’d hear me say.

      • piper says:

        My first republican vote (3 total) was for Gerald Ford. In 1980, I chose to sit that election out – even though I was still s Dem. I refused to vote for the that stooge after his fateful first term.

    • leslie says:

      I’m with you, Dandy. But I did know that bronco was going to be bad. I just never imagined he would be *this* bad.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Me too DT. I even hit the streets protesting him and his “regime of criminals”. Good grief, where are those people now ? Oh look, there they are….OWS….Black Lives Matter…..same people directing their stupid hatey-hate at everything but Obama.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Love wiener dogs. My babies looked like this:

      • 1539days says:

        I have a friend with a long and a short hair.

      • Somebody says:

        Denise you are a wiener dog fan? Me too, I have a red, mini long haired named…..wait for it……LUCY!! I named her Lucy because she’s red headed like Lucille Ball and I sing “I Love Lucy” to her all the time, LOL!!

        BTW in good company here, I call her a wiener too…..lots of people call them doxies. My little Lucy is the most adorable dog and soooooo sweet, she’s a little love puppy, loves to be held like a baby in my arms. I love me some wiener, LMAO!!

        • DeniseVB says:

          My first lh was a sweet red named “Lucy” too ! We mostly called them our wireless alarm system 🙂 Such large personalities in such a small package! We are wienerless now as they all lived well into their teens and I’m afraid the next pup may outlive me. I’ve let a few local nursing homes know if ever you admit a person who has to give up their doxie, and their family won’t take her, I’ll be happy to foster the dog and bring her by for visits.

      • lyn says:

        E.B. White had wiener dogs and wrote about them. His granddaughter collected some of his essays– “E.B. White on Dogs.” From a Washington Times book review:

        White encountered dachshunds, with whom he would be forever associated, by way of his wife’s interest in the breed. One of these, Fred, was destined to be famous, but it was not love at first sight. White wrote in 1936, “I have been agreeably encumbered by a very large and dissolute dachshund named Fred. He even disobeys me when I instruct him in something that he wants to do. And when I answer his [peremptory] scratch at the door and hold the door open for him to walk through, he stops in the middle.”

        White would write of Fred, “Of all the dogs whom I have served, I’ve never known one who understood so much of what I say or held it in such deep contempt.”

        Fred went to his reward in 1948, a victim “of his excesses and after a drink of brandy.” But he lived on in White’s writings, achieving a certain literary immortality.

    BTW the word on the street is that George Step……….. actually donated $75,000.00 not $50 grand.

    • DeniseVB says:

      But, but, but, he gave it to a CHARITY because he wants to help AIDS and deforestation that the CGI is helping !!!!! Yeah, right.

      Someone reported (been watching the twitter trending GeorgieS ) Trump donated 100k to the Clintons. Even The Five panel admitted today that Fox Corp’s donated to them too. This can only get better…. 😀

      • leslie says:

        I donated at one time, too. Does that make me no longer a TCHer, or just gullible?

      • Lulu says:

        Leslie, I donated years ago. Nothing like a large number or anything. And yes I feel like a fucking chump. We have stopped donating to pretty much anything and everything because most are rackets or have evolved political agendas to fit in with the elites we don’t agree with anymore. So I would get kicked out too. (((Sob!))) I even stopped giving to the food bank because of illegals rolling up in Escalades with dealer tags still on them. They think all of us are just stupid cows to be milked. No more.

        • leslie says:

          Lulu, I agree with you about many of the organizations are for-profit-for-themselves.
          Honestly, I figure if an organization can afford to send me address labels that I haven’t requested and umbrellas and picnic baskets and blankets – all unrequested – – – they don’t need the little bit I can give.
          The Food Pantry is the one I continue to support. I send many of my clients there when they are in need and they always are so thankful. Some of my clients have turned around and volunteered as a way to say thanks.
          Let’s meet in the dungeon for coffee and brownies and commiserate. 😉

    something happened here. I am not mechanical enough to really understand this.

    • 49erDweet says:

      It was just departing. Could the engineer have advanced the throttle full on and then become distracted or incapacitated too long?

    • DeniseVB says:

      I posted a link in another comment box below for you Helen. I enjoyed reading about the young engineer living his dream, from the Daily Mail, darn they’re good at this stuff. I was so upset when I heard Mayor Nutter bashing him today as reckless, the NTSB isn’t happy with that as they still continue to investigate.

  5. Myiq2xu says:

    This is an indictment:

    One reason Stephanopoulos made such a graceful switch from pol to pressie is because there isn’t much to making the switch. As long as you can do the work, the journalism profession doesn’t care if your last port of call was a federal penitentiary. Other politicians who have successfully crossed over to the TV news racket include Mike Huckabee, Joe Scarborough, Tim Russert, John Kasich, Jerry Springer, Susan Molinari, Diane Sawyer, Mary Matalin, Chris Matthews, Bill Moyers, Bay Buchanan, Al Sharpton, Bill Bradley, Dee Dee Myers, Dana Perino, Lawrence O’Donnell, Nicolle Wallace, Karl Rove and others.

    • DeniseVB says:

      This is the money quote:

      As we conduct the dumb, dumber and dumbest inventory of Stephanopoulos’ humiliation, we must ask why it was necessary for him to give anything to the Clinton Foundation? In his first statement to Byers, he said he gave to the Clintons because he believes so deeply in the AIDS and deforestation programs administered by the Clintons. Surely a politically neutered foundation that does equal or superior works in those areas would accept his philanthropy. Surely when Stephanopoulos cross-examined Peter Schweizer, the author of the Clinton Foundation expose Clinton Cash, on the April 26 edition of This Week, the meta aspect of the segment must have occurred to him! But, no! Stephanopoulos bowls right through the interview without any acknowledgement of his cash endorsement of the Clinton Foundation!

      The whole article is pretty darn good, including that when Free Beacon asked ABC about it, ABC gave the scoop to Politico. The media is stinkier than the pols they cover.

      • 1539days says:

        ABC is the worst. I still remember Jay Carney and Claire Shipman (his wife) on This Week (before George Stephanopoulos) covering the 2008 election. Soon after, Carney jumped ship to the Obama administration. Linda Douglass did too when she went from ABC to the White House.

        This is why they hate Fox News. This channel actually has the least nepotism dense news division.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I’ve seen the charts connecting the dots from the newsies to the WH. It runs deep in the Bampot admin.

          • Lulu says:

            It looks like a Mafioso exhibit at a RICO trial. Nepotism, blood feuds, crazy uncles, neighbors from Sicily, prison cellmates from prior incarceration, etc. Talent and ability means nothing. It is all who you know and who kisses ass best. And they wonder why they are loosing viewers and readership. I have predicted that 2016 is the year the media hold on picking or influencing elections is broken. No one gives a shit what they “think” anymore. They bet the farm on Obama and lost their big influence.

      LOL ! In my perfect world, MO would win the Dem nom and the GOP would throw their hands up and run Sarah or Carly or Nikki or Susanna, bring on those debates !!!

      • Lulu says:

        This is just stroking Mooch’s ginormic ego. Butt kissing like telling her how much like Jackie O she is. They better watch it because it only confirms that blacks will only vote for other blacks no matter how ridiculous the candidate and cuts their influence in the long run. If she isn’t nominated or doesn’t win what are they going to do?

        • leslie says:


          • Lulu says:

            Yep. But I didn’t want to sound racisss. Since they burn down their own sad towns I not sure anyone gives a crap about that either.

          • leslie says:

            And today, I don’t care if I do sound racisss. Since I originally supported Hillary (another mistake, I guess) I’ve been called that, and it no longer registers with me.

          • Lulu says:

            I don’t view supporting Hillary in 2008 as a mistake. She was the best around at the time. I view pretty much everything as a learning experience. But I learned a long time ago that you don’t throw in with your enemies. Taking the SOS job was that and more. She either outsmarted herself or is a sucker. Neither is what I would classify as a presidential qualification. She can’t claim naivete. She knew up close and personal what these people are.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          Mooch’s ginormic ego isn’t as big as her humongous ass.

      I was reading the excuse that if Amtrak had unlimited money, they could get machines that wouldn’t allow the train to go too fast.

      • Lulu says:

        I postulate that the obsession with this train wreck directly correlates to the number of times per month that the media hack rides this train per month. I’m not seeing much of this from the LA Times writers who ride on airplanes to shuttle back and forth.

      • leslie says:

        If they would put another human as a co-engineer, it prolly would make a difference immediately.

        • Lulu says:

          I thought this already was in effect. The freight/oil trains heading to Houston through my town have two. I guess the oil is more valuable than the media/government hacks riding the DC to NYC shuttle. LOL.

        I hope they don’t turn their backs. It would be better to nod off since he is so boring and craves attention. Disrespect should be subtle like no applause or repeatedly yawning so the fanatics can’t harp on it and go full outrage bonkers. Maybe they could all be eating donuts?

      Garry McCarthy, Chicago’s top cop, has just forbidden cops to shoot at or into cars when the cars are driving towards them (presumably to hurt/kill them) if the car is the only threat to the cop.
      *shaking head*

  8. 49erDweet says:

    Helen, I think this story is generally a crock. There’s another agenda at play here. Probably some cop union somewhere is ramping up demands and wants some “ammunition”. Yes, a few agencies are hurting, but that’s a “Wah! Wah! Wah!” story and I don’t trust the source.

  9. John Denney says:

    What he said:
    “some of the best public schools in the country [are] over in Fairfax County, Virginia. . ..That is also a more wealthy than average county in the country. That is an example of a society of a community that has invested in a common good for the benefit of their community and that’s the kind of thing that we need to see all across the country.”

    What he meant:
    “Those rich people spent a bunch of money on their public schools, which made those schools the best, so we need to spend obscene amounts of money on public schools across the country.”

    But they don’t spend that much more than other Virginia counties:

    Maryland spends the same per pupil amount in ALL their public schools as Fairfax County.

    Don’t Mess With Senior Citizens.

    A lady decided to give herself a big treat for her 70th birthday by staying overnight in a really nice luxurious hotel..
    When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.00. She demanded to know why the charge was so high “I agree it’s a nice hotel, but the rooms aren’t worth $250..00 for just an overnight stay – I didn’t even have breakfast!”
    The clerk told her that $250.00 is the ‘standard rate,’ and breakfast had been included had she wanted it.
    She insisted on speaking to the Manager.
    The Manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, announced: “This hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center which are available for use.” “But I didn’t use them.” ”Well, they are here, and you could have.”
    He went on to explain that she could also have seen one of the in-hotel shows for which they were so famous.
    “We have the best entertainers from all over the world performing here.”
    “But I didn’t go to any of those shows..” She Pleaded.
    Well, we have them, and you could have.” was the reply.
    No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, she replied,
    “But I didn’t use it!” and the Manager countered with his
    standard response.
    After several minutes discussion, and with the Manager still unmoved, she decided to pay, wrote a check and gave it to him.
    The Manager was surprised when he looked at the check.
    “But Madam, this check is for only $50.00” “That’s correct” she replied “I charged you $200.00 for sleeping with me.”

    “But I didn’t sleep with you madam!” said the manager

    “Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have.”
