“Zero” opposition to Duncan’s agenda?

A commenter on this blog pointed me to Secretary Duncan telling the New York Times that he “encounters no public opposition” to his education agenda. SO WEIRD. Whatever you think of his priorities, you have to acknowledge that there has been plenty of opposition to them, some of it written about by the very reporter who was interviewing him. Either Duncan was lying (and if so, why?

what is so bad about saying “Some people don’t agree with us, but we think we are doing the right thing”?) or he is as insulated from the world around him as this guy.
