Everything Is A Partisan Issue
While President Bush has made physical fitness a personal priority, his cuts to education funding have forced schools to roll back physical education classes…How does this press release square with the facts? It doesn’t. The federal Department of Education's budget has increased under President Bush by 82.5 percent, growing from $34.9 billion in FY2001 to $63.7 billion in FY2005. The average state receives a level of grant funding that is 51 percent higher than when President Bush took office; no state has an increase less than 35 percent.
You would think that some pieces of news really don't warrant partisan comment. One of those pieces of news, you'd assume, would be the results of the President's yearly physical exam. The President gets checked out, he's in good health, everyone moves on, right? Wrong. Everything - EVERYTHING - is apparently a partisan issue now.A partisan comment, we might add, with no basis in fact.
