He never ceases to disgust me.

(Fox News) — President Obama bad-mouthed the United States during a visit to an Australian high school, telling teenagers that the United States has “fallen behind” in education, according to a White House pool report.

He told young people at Campbell High School the United States has “fallen behind” when it comes to math and science education — explaining why he made it a priority in his administration.

He also said poor American children don’t get “the support they need when they’re very young” and are “already behind” when they enter grammar school.

President Obama also told students that he is “always inspired when I meet with young people because you’re not stuck in some of the old stodgy ideas” one finds in grown-ups.
