      Mostly cliches and rhetoric, little in the way of specifics with statistical support.  The federal government should provide money for school infrastructure, but it should stay out of making policy.  Obama is just trying to show to the beltway opinion makers that he has an inner "new Democrat."  And he's doing it at the expense of teachers.

      Furthermore, on this issue, he's a hypocrite.  He sends his kids to an elite private school rather than a public school, the way Jimmy Carter did.  If he really cared about public schools, he would have put his money where is mouth is.

      The economic elitists are howling.
