    Yes, Obama has overcome more than Bush and achieved greater things. What is your point?

    He was certainly not born into privilege.

    NCLB deserved to be criticized, but not in the manner it has been today.

    What I appreciated most about it was that, quite honestly, it put the fire to the schools in the exact spots it needed to be. For my stakeholders (students with disabilities and their families), it was impressive seeing the turnaround after NCLB. Before there was almost a non-existent sense of accountability for that student, and afterward, suddenly schools were being a bit more responsive to families. They were required to separate that data much more than they had in the past, and to this day we use it to guide policy.

    What's disappointing me is that Republicans are starting to listen to teacher unions in clamoring for removing these accountability measures for the demographics that had been so ignored and mistreated in the past. The Bush family wouldn't have tolerated that.

    Good thing Dems were all in on Medicare Part D and helped Bush save the program with its disastrous roll-out.

    Yeah I don't get this whole "medicare part D was a great thing" that people put forth. It was Bush's attempt at privatizing medicare. It made it so only private companies could participate in the prescription drug program and hence that drastic "donut hole" that had seniors going broke or going to Mexico trying to fill their drug prescriptions. And drugs have been skyrocketing in prices ever since.

    Compare that to Bush, who was born into unlimited wealth and opportunity, with a bought-and-paid for Harvard degree. Despite unlimited everything, he was pretty much a failure until he entered politics. And because he couldn't think for himself and was wholly unqualified for any elected position, he became a pawn of evil men who twisted his administration into an abomination that will have negative global repercussions for decades.

    A bought-and-paid-for degree? I don't think you really want to get into a discussion of degrees and who paid for them, do you? Or to denigrate one advanced Harvard degree over another. But if you do, let's talk about transcripts and Obama's from Occidental.

    I guess you're conceding the larger point, since you've zeroed in on a small segment of my response in an attempt to divert attention.

    Actually...I think GWB's legacy will be more about what he did to the economy of this country. History will remember him as the Herbert Hoover of the 21st century.
