Bush's Education Gap
From The Boston Globe: "In the question-and-answer period, there was a moment when Bush was caught confused about his assets in another arena. Someone asked Bush, ''Recently, $12.7 billion was cut from education . . . How is that supposed to help our futures?'
There was applause from the crowd.
Bush stumbled. ''Education budget was cut? Say it again. What was cut?'
The person said, ''$12.7 billion was cut from education. And I was just wanting to know: How is that supposed to help our futures?'
Bush said, ''At the federal level?'
The person said, ''Yes.'
Bush said, ''I don't think we've actually -- for higher education?'
The person said, ''Student loans.'
Bush said, ''Student loans?'
The person said, ''Yes, student loans.'"
Now that Shrub is doing more of these unscripted Q&A's, we're going to see more moments like this. It would be entertaining if it weren't so sad.
