    I must've misheard what he said. I'll take your word for it though.

    "He said he was astonished to learn that a voucher program in Milwaukee had never been tested in a longitudinal study to find out whether it had helped children or not. "If there was any argument for vouchers it was, all right, let's see if this experiment works, and then if it does, whatever my preconceptions, my attitude is you do what works for the kids," Mr. Obama said."
    My feeling is that not everybody is a fan of public schools. I would very much prefer to send my kids to private schools, but I can't afford it. At least let me get a tax credit for paying for private schools.

    Christ man, was it the "open mind" part that threw you?
    I'm sorry, I must have interpreted you saying "He is not anti-voucher" as something other than effectively denying support for them.

    Barack Obama believes free, quality public education is the heart of the American promise. He supports public charter schools, but not vouchers.

    Look, I know that was you attempting sarcasm... but it's bad timing. I've already posted that he is open to the idea if it proves to be successful.

    Alright... let's just agree to disagree, buddy. Have a great night. Tomorrow's a BIG day!

    Repped.

    he is a fake! he has been back peddlin this last week. I honestly don't think he will make it. If he does then that's what the people want. I just hope he can deliver. I know his security will have to deliver alot. he isn't ready for this type no matter what happens, he won't be ready for this commitment.
