Today's headline says it all: After Criticism, the Administration Is Praised for Final Rules on Education Grants.
Upon reading the article, we find that none of the corporate reformer priorities has changed, and the "praise" that Dillon has gone looking for is as scarce as hen's teeth. The facts are acknowleged here by the reptilian Rahm Emanuel:
“Even after all the comments, the rules are as comprehensive and demanding as before, they haven’t changed,” said Rahm Emanuel, Mr. Obama’s chief of staff, in an interview. “We’re seeking reforms, so we haven’t backed off anything.”The headline, no doubt, was written for the benefit of those who read just headlines.

Let the race to oblivion begin!
Loved the 'reptitlian Rahm Emanuel' line. I knew there was something over-the-top creepy about the guy, but now I have a phrase to go with it! Thanks!ReplyDelete
