COMMENT: Actually, I don’t think it reflects hyperbole…I don’t usually comment on the Quotes of the Week but this one is purely stupid, coming from any kind of leader – regardless of your political leanings. Education is what has made America!! Without education there would be no doctors, no nurses, no teachers, no engineers, no whatever profession you like that contributes to the economy and development of the nation. And, in my experience – colleges and universities produce lots of Republicans and Democrats who are thoughtful. In fact, my best friends are from both parties. Enough said…
