    While I found this on Fox News and Huff Po, I think this may just be one massive joke or someone is trolling. If not, then all I have to say is that Obama is an idiot, you shouldn't appoint singers to educational commissions, appoint people who actually know what they are doing.

    ABOUT US - Barefoot Foundation

    I don't see what the problem is. She seems perfectly qualified for the position. Just because she happens to be a singer doesn't mean that's the only thing she knows how to do.

    It's on the level. It's been announced on whitehouse.gov. President Obama Announces More Key Administration Posts | The White House

    I won't criticize him for it. We've got to start thinking outside the box when it comes to educating minorities in this country. As all have heard from me any number of times, what we're doing now isn't working. It's high time we started thinking outside the box. According to the article, she brings some experience to the table and a passion for education. No problems here.

    Ah! Ok, didn't know that! Now that I see this, I'd say give her a chance and lets see what happens.

    I'll admit I was a bit surprised at that. I thought only US citizens could be Presidential advisors. I'm sure there's percedent, although I can't think of anyone off the bat.
