Today in his town hall address in Elkhart, IN, President Obama criticized heavy cuts to education funding in the Senate's economic recovery package crafted by the so-called "Gang of Moderates." "I'll be honest with you, the Senate version cut a lot of these education dollars," said Obama. "I would like to see some of them restored."
Nevertheless, proud "centrists" Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME) appeared on MSNBC this afternoon to tout their version of the bill. Lieberman, in particular, went overboard in praising the gang's Republicans -- Snowe, Susan Collins (ME), and Arlen Specter (PA) -- by calling them "heroes" who deserve an award.
