"The purpose of this program has been to create as large a body of informed voting citizens as possible. And while we've been profoundly successful at that, the left has beaten us. They have created far more low-information, unaware, uneducated people than we've been able to keep up with."
"If hundreds of thousands or millions of adults actually believe that there are people who want their kids to starve in this country, then not only is that shameful, it's downright embarrassing, and it's beneath the dignity of any of us here to even have to try and defend it."
