Andrew Z is not correct. In this case, money was spent by the unions on the
least objectionable candidate, in the hopes that someone would listen to the
needs of teachers. They did not. Obama was completely absent when we were
protesting in Madison. He has not been a friend to education. You can't
have "No Child Left Behind" while there is a simultaneous "Race to
the Top." The real lie here is that both major parties are identical, in
their wrong-headed approaches to education. I've read some of Mr.
Romney's "new" ideas and it's just another plan to set up
public school funding to be mined for private profit. Children should not be a
commodity. If elected, Mr. Romney will become the "Bain" of education.
Irony of the Week --- Having to FACTCHECK everything the Republican
Presidential candidate says [who also happens to be a devout Mormon].Being LDS myself, I hold him to a higher standard."As
Latter-Day Saints, Our integrity must be above reproach." ~ Pres. Godon B.
It's not a lie, if you believe it.George Costanza
Mitt Romney decried President Barack Obama as beholden to the nation's
teachers' unions and unable to stand up for reform?. What's
Romney's take on home schooling?. Romney loves The Dept.of Education,
bureaucrats and the Teacher's Union. He is a proponent of taxpayer school
vouchers on a wide-scale level across the country, and is open about his desire
to all students regardless of their ethnicity immersed in English-language
education. Romney currently supports the federal government's involvement
in education. THAT MEANS HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES for you. Husband and wife have
a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children,
not the government. Mitt Romney is off to his little fairytale world. Though
the Obama campaign has repeatedly attacked Mitt Romney for his career at Bain
Capital, President Obama still accepted $7,500 in campaign contributions from
three Bain executives. His campaign press secretary, Ben LaBolt told The
Politicker the president has no intention of giving the money back. We call
upon responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those
measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit
of society. My truthful views.
Romney, once again, shows an inability to tell the truth. Surprise, surprise .
. . NOT! That's business as usual for him.
Just one more lie from Romney. Nothing new here.
A politician bending the truth? I've never heard of such a thing.As I have written before: A politician is a politician is a politician. I
don't care if they are rep or dem, Mormon or Evangelical. They all spin,
bend, and sometimes flatout lie during a campaign, the whole while saying they
are out to help us. Reality: They just want the job!
Has Mitt ever been able to speak the truth? You know a half-truth is also a
half-lie. A half-lie is still a lie.Not a moral fiber in his body
Nice spin but the reality is Romney was still correct in his assessments. The
real difference is one of perception and semantics. Unions as a collective whole
gave more money to President Obama than the Koch brothers have in this election
cycle alone. The President does cater to the unions at the expense of the rest
of the country. School vouchers, Charter Schools, and test scores are a
collective agenda that the President routinely defers to the union bosses.
