I thought Democrats were the party that imposed massive, bureaucratic federal programs that impose on the sovereignty of states and generally make everyone unhappy? It seems like the shoe is on the other foot these days — I just wonder if voters will figure it out. The state of Virginia is trying to opt out of the “No Child Left Behind” educational morass, and Republican state legislators voted unanimously to ask to be removed from the program. I’m not saying that Democrats, if in power, won’t come up with similar hare-brained schemes to reform the educational system, what I am saying is that it’s high time for Republicans to stop getting credit for not being that kind of party.
