1. I wish

he would have named the corporate officers. I don't know about the company he used, but some of the Bushies are neck deep in the testing industry.

2. Neil Bush is definitely one of them.

If I recall correctly during the early days of the No Child Left Behind campaign, he ran a company that made projectors for education use that received a massive pay day from George and then Florida governor Jeb. I definitely remember my mom, who is in education, saying his devices were complete bullshit.
