[/quote] Presidents are responsible for everything in their term. So being executive chief the educational system is his. Haven't you paid attention to the news about the new lunch program spearheaded by the president?

Let's pretend that I'm President. The day before I'm to be replaced, I go and put the whole budget in to buying missles. Let's pretend that this takes 5 minutes to do, and that 5 minutes later I have been replaced as President. Do you blame the new President for the mass of weapons, or do you blame the person before who went and bought them? Relating that example to the state of the education system, you can't put the entire blame on Obama. Given the education system's history, Obama has only had a small amount of time to make any changes and these changes take time to come to fruition. It's not Obama's education system, it's America's education system.

[/quote]Guess you didn't watch the debate last night where Obama was spewing off his amazing program that was helping the American Education system, you know, the one he can directly influence. Or are you also claiming that Bush's failed "No child left behind" program wasn't Bush's fault?

Missiles don't get delivered in 5 minutes; your supposed example fails because it is absolutely the new president's fault if he doesn't cancel the missile order.

I'm surprised to hear you say that. Is this sarcasm? Cause I blame the liberal media for most of what's wrong with society.

You're trying to put the fault of a system that has gone through years of regular changes in management on the shoulders of one person. If you want to blame this on the state of the education system then that blame is to be shared over many presidents, not just one.

Them acting like this likely has nothing to do with the education system. The education system could be the best in the world, but some kids just don't work hard at school.

You can't just cancel a contract like that.
Or rather you can, but then pay loads more money for a breech of contract.

That's the problem all over the place though. Governments aren't in power long enough to make a real difference. We had Labour for years who did an okay job, but the first half of their term was spent undoing all what the Conservatives had done years previous.
Now the Conservatives are in again, they are simply undoing all what Labour did.

However a good plan by the guys and as another user said, if they'd thought it out a bit better then they could have got away with it.
