41. I read the article. You did a lot more than paraphrase.
That excerpt can be interpreted just as easily to mean Obama was a prop, which is more accurate than your interpretation. Have you read Obama's speech? He wants to privatize our schools. You do know that Jeb came up with this idea before Obama did, right?
