Those Pesky Fact-Thingys

As Obama has now bludgeoned America's youth through excessive exposure to platitudes, bromides, and cliches, Byron York uncovers the fact that when Bush the Elder did something similar in 1991, he was d enounced by the Washington Post, and investigated by congressional democratic majority and the GAO.

I don't think that we have to worry that the Democrats will investigate Obama the way they did Bush. Indeed, if it wasn't for the creepy bit in the lesson plan about having the kids write letters to hold themselves accountable for supporting the president, this might have been a non-issue from the start.

Doesn't mean that it wasn't a colossal waste of instructional time as well as money.
