No, it’s not the Onion, it’s real.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama will tour a Florida school with former Governor Jeb Bush on Friday, the White House said, teaming up with a Republican Party heavyweight to promote bipartisan education reform.
White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Tuesday that Bush, whose brother George W. Bush preceded Obama as president, had suggested Miami Central High School as a good showcase for policies that work in improving performance in education.
Obama has shifted toward the political center following heavy losses for his Democrats in November elections and his success in finding common ground with political opponents will be a key part of his appeal in the 2012 presidential election.
“Governor Bush … was committed and remains committed to bipartisan education reform. The president is as well. He’s looking forward to that visit,” Carney said.
Obama’s spitting in our faces now – most especially those of the Wisconsin protestors, the union movement, and what’s left of the Democratic base. He’s practically screaming at the top of his lungs “What part of ‘I’m a Republican’ don’t you understand????!!!”
It’s a bit frightening to realize your president is channelling American Psycho.
