Nice Try

Florida GOP chair Jim Greer tried to recover some of his disgraced dignity by claiming that because he raised a stink about the president’s education speech, the White House re-wrote it.

“Now that the White House got their hand in the cookie jar caught, they changed everything, they redid the lesson plans, they released the text, and tomorrow he’s gonna give a speech that every president should have an opportunity to give.”

Suzanne Malveaux asked Greer if he had any inside information that the White House changed the speech.

“No, I don’t,” said Greer.

This is a rather awkward moment for Mr. Greer now that everyone from Laura Bush to Newt Gingrich said that it was perfectly fine for the president to talk to the school children and Mr. Greer became the poster child for stupid over-the-top right wing nutsery.
