Obama education budget is 'cradle to career agenda'? 

Conservatives often indulge in hyperbole about liberals wanting a "nanny state" or assuming the impossible task of taking care of people from "cradle to grave."

Well, Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan is actually describing the administration's education budget as a "cradle to career agenda." That sounds a lot like a nanny state, and while it's not "cradle to grave" -- it's halfway there. Might want to dial the Orwellian language back a bit, Mr. Secretary.
