You gotta laugh at them endorsing so early, because you know the idea of a President Bachmann or Romney would decimate the teachers in this country.
(CNN) – A year earlier than usual, the nation’s largest teachers union on Monday endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election in 2012.
The National Education Association, which represents 3.2 million teachers and administrators, approved the recommendation from its political action committee at its annual meeting in Chicago.
Obama “shares our vision for a stronger America,” NEA President Dennis Van Roekel said in a statement issued by the group. “He has never wavered from talking about the importance of education or his dedication to a vibrant middle class.”
The NEA statement said the organization usually waits until the summer of an election year to endorse a candidate. This year, it did so earlier than normal “in order to provide early and strong support to help ensure the election of a candidate who is on the side of students and working families.”
