most "educated." There is a lot to be said for common sense and lessons learned through life experiences. In fact, many of these academics went from high school, to college, to grad school and either stayed in academia or went to work for a "foundation" of some kind. Their "real world" business experiences are limited but they still condescend to the "uneducated" just like our president. If he were running any kind of a business, it would be completely bankrupt by now (in every sense of the word). Applying theories learned in school on a national level (which is what every person in the Obama administration is doing) is catastrophic to the lives of the people they are supposed to be serving.
