I posted this as a comment to someone else, but I thought I would share it here. It concerns the wide range of people calling Bush a hypocrit for coming out against colleges showing prefference to the children of alumni.

Don't get me wrong, I loath Bush and Co., but...

If he had come out for the college prefferences, then he would have been flamed for being an elitist. Now he's being flamed for what? Disliking something he once took advantage of. It's like calling vegitarians or vegan hypocrits, as all of them likely enjoyed meat at one time.

I'm all for mocking Bush, and pointing out how stupid he is, but this seems like a very silly attack to pull on him.

As I see it, Bush said something I think most of us would agree with and instead of positive reenforcement, we still abuse him. That sends very confusing messages to all of our politicans. What happens when the colleges do review this and see some huge percentage of America critisized Bush for being against prefferencial treatment, therefore America must be for it.
