Better than Monday night football: Berkowitz w/Milton Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice Chairman Byrne on Cable/Web

Dr. Patrick Byrne: ... You're telling me [Barack Obama] believes one thing [and says something else]. Frankly the President did the same thing in 2008.  He went up to Milwaukee and in the campaign... one day he says, we're going to do whatever works- even if it includes [school] vouchers, we're going to do whatever works and the next day his campaign released a statement that said, "When the candidate said we're going to do whatever works, he didn't  really mean that."

***********************************************************************************************************

Jeff Berkowitz: Can you be for school vouchers- school choice [if you're running in the Democratic Primary for U.S. Senate or President]?

Dr. Patrick Byrne: That's not the point.  Somebody should say what they believe and then the citizenry decides whether to support the person or not. You're telling me [Barack Obama] believes one thing [and says something else]. Frankly the President did the same thing in 2008.  He went up to Milwaukee and in the campaign... one day he says, we're going to do whatever works- even if it includes [school] vouchers, we're going to do whatever works and the next day his campaign released a statement that said, "When the candidate said we're going to do whatever works, he didn't  really mean that."
