education = jobs? reports today:

"'In the final debate I talked about the vital link between education and jobs; the senator didn't seem to get it,' Bush told thousands of supporters in the heart of the biggest media market in Iowa that covers some 30 counties in the eastern part of the state."

Oh he gets it, Mr. President. He just understands that it takes more than some half-assed college grant program and a semi-funded no-child-left-behind mandate to honestly claim you've got a jobs program. He also gets that telling people the problem behind their inability to manage their livelihood is not enough education is more than a little condescending, not to mention blazingly obtuse. Not to mention a few other choice words, considering the role you've had in gutting the middle class's security and even viability.
