Monday notes: What is a community organizer (Video), an Aspen vacation for the FLOTUS and education in America!

Three stories of interest that includes a video about community organizing that describes what most Americans who voted for President Obama in the first place likely did not know!

1) Community Organizer defined;
2) Does this picture describe the state of education in America today; and
3) If you're the First Lady, why would you ski at Hunter Mountain if you can ski Aspen?

What is the job description of a "Community Organizer"? Let's ask Saul Alinsky!

The term "Community Organizer" sounds extremely noble, but it's extremely unlikely that few of us actually know the true role that they are tasked to perform.

This video will help to provide an important window into the mind of President Obama, a former community organizer, as we head into the 2012 election.

Education in America?

Is this picture a commentary of education in the United States or simply a student following directions in an extremely literal way?

Is the FLOTUS politically tone deaf, does she simply not care or does she know that the MSM has her back and that this trip to Aspen will be a non-event in the news?

I don't know about any of you but I'm not as lucky as the First Lady and won't be vacationing in Aspen this week. I also didn't just get back from a trip to Hawaii to celebrate the new year!

"... The Obama campaign has set itself up as the defender of the poor and the middle class against the “One Percent,” a theme which clashes with the image a first lady who is taking frequent and exclusive vacations.

Just last August, she sojourned on Martha’s Vineyard, and the month before she travelled to southern Africa for a trip that mixed official business with tourist outings like an African safari. In July 2010, she took an exorbitant excursion to the southern coast of Spain, flying out with friends and family on a large jet that often serves as Air Force 2 and then staying at a ritzy hotel.

What’s more, as the government struggles to cut the deficit, the symbolism of a first lady jetting out to Aspen with a security entourage at taxpayers’ expense to ski would seem to send the wrong message about cutting back on spending..." (White House Dossier)
