One Hundred Years of Public Education

My brother sent this to me tonight.  I think I’ve seen it before, unattributed, but it’s right in most particulars.

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

A comment in response to it seen elsewhere, however, puts it in perspective:

I’m not worried about the 1/5 of America that voted for him, I’m worried about the 3/5ths of America that didn’t care enough to vote at all.
