Jobs bill, less of a Race, more dissent?

July 2, 2010

Everyone’s happy about the jobs bill’s passage out of the House. At least that’s the vibe I’ve been getting over here. Interesting that Congress took $500 million out of RttT funds to help fund it. I thought Duncan’s reaction was pretty spoiled. I mean, he was sitting on billions and billions of dollars that he didn’t give out; perhaps he was trying to get people to race harder in the second round. And yet he complained (sounded kind of whiny to me) that Congress took from his fund to fund their fund.

I really could care less that Congress did that. I wonder how that will be portrayed in Dennis’ speech tomorrow. That’s another thing too, people (NEA staffers) are kind of repeating the mantra “Wait till you hear Dennis’ speech….” like there’s some kind of earth-shattering end-all-be-all rally the troops cry for NEA contained within it. That being said, I think there probably is. But Dennis is not Reg Weaver (not that it’s a bad thing) and his delivery is different. More cerebral than emotional as compared to Reg.

Oh well, tomorrow’s another day.
