Democracy USA style?

When the Secretary of Education calls the NEA a terrorist organization because it dared to challenge the value and integrity of NCLB, it sent a chilling message about this administration's view of democracy and dissent.

At other times, opponents of NCLB have been accused of the "soft bigotry" of low expectations.

Insults, threats and the withholding of funds are used to enforce an ideology that is damaging to children.

Are these the same folks trying to bring democracy to Iraq?
