Perhaps about how government has a duty to even the playing field rather than extend the advantages of an already privileged class further?
How is that possible when IMO the privileged usually is the government or the son of the government?
It's not like this is the only area where elitism is a problem. This happens in every day life as well. A friend of mine was just layed off so the son of the some high up muckity muck could have a white collar job even though he is unqualified.

Hmmm, two thoughts to add.
1. If his memory is good enough to remember that G.W. Bush was one of the many kids who benefited, it should be good enough to remember what job he had at the time.
2. Is it fair to conclude he, himself benefited nicely from helping all these rich families. A lot of his success over the last 36 years is probably built on that foundation. (that he -now- regrets)
I'll raise you to 3.
3. Why has he suddenly remembered it now? Where had he been for the last year (at least)? This has been a hot topic on Bush for way too long to be conviently remembered now in the big middle of the RNC.
