If Obama doesn't like school libraries, why does he visit them so often?

By now, you've no doubt heard about the elimination of federal funding for the Improving Litracy Through School Libraries program from the proposed FY 2011 budget, and read passionate responses from Buffy Hamilton and Cathy Jo Nelson. I keep coming back to those myriad pictures of him mugging in school libraries while simultaneously undermining them.


  1. Beats me! c'mon Barack, think about what you're doing!

  2. Thanks for pointing to these photos that tell a different story. I am hugely disappointed in him. I sent my letters yesterday to the congressiona members representing SC and one to the President too. This story certainly serves to get us back on the rigth advocacy effort --saving our librries for our kids, and off the now inane topic of names for those who serve in these facilities. I just dont understand how he can justify this cut?
