Ronald Reagan was a Constitutional Conservative, he would not endorse Indoctrination, disguised as Education, promoting curriculum taught to the Standards, in order to trash traditional values and promote global Socialism. All for Federal dollars. Ronald Reagan was not a notorious liar.
As with everything else in the Obama administration (Obama's PolitiFact's 2013 Lie of the Year Award) most information about Common Core is not true, a half truth or a misrepresentation. Those in favor of Common Core, represent it as, whatever they want it to be. Liberals and the Obama Media lie about Obamacare, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the NSA, the IRS being used to steal the 2012 election, and now Common Core so repetitiously that we are becoming immune to their lies.
It was Churchill who said, a lie -- paraphrasing -- is halfway around the world before the truth even puts its pants on in the morning.
There is a notable difference between how Democrats 'circle the wagons' around their party members and the Republicans 'call their members out'. Most notably President Bill Clinton (who took advantage sexually of a subordinate employee, Monica Lewinsky and then lied about it) and now President Barack Hussein Obama who knowingly lied numerous times, (37 references from 2009 through 2013) repeating over and over again " If you like your health care plan, you can keep it" all to get reelected in 2012. Obama never was vetted by the media, an extension of the Democrat Party, and to this day he has not released his high school or his college records, transcripts and test scores. Why Obama has not done so remains a mystery--unless he has something else to hide.
"In his autobiography, Dreams from My Father, Barack Obama describes himself as an unfocused high school student whose mother scolded him for being a "loafer" (142). He describes his attitude toward his studies at Occidental as "indifferent" (146), calling himself a "bum" who abused drugs (138) and who was notorious for partying all weekend (165). Obama writes in Dreams: "[W]hen I heard about a transfer program that Occidental had arranged with Columbia University, I'd been quick to apply"(172).
However, there is no record of such a "transfer program" existing at either Columbia or Occidental."(Breitbart News) Martin Luther King said a person should be judged by their character, not by the color of their skin. The Left espouses Obama's brilliance, why not release his academic records? How did Obama manage to get into Harvard Law School? Why dumb down our education system, is it to accommodate the affirmative action program?
Common Core is just more of the same. The State Standards (State, in name only) since it is a Federal Program that must be adopted and taught, in order for states to keep the money from the Federal government. To those who say it is Standards not Curriculum, teachers teach to the Standards so now it becomes the Curriculum. Common Core is bad for students and teachers. If you think otherwise you are delusional.
Even the hypocrites in the media will not be able to save the Democrats and those Republicans who are trying to destroy America with their unconstitutional big government socialistic policies. Truth does prevail. Nate Silver gave "the Republican Party a 60 percent chance of retaking the Senate in November - a chilling prospect for Democrats. Silver also says there is a 30% chance that the GOP can "win big." http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/03/23/nate_silver_of_538_gop_has_60_chance_of_taking_the_senate_in_2014.html
The only parade heading for a cliff are the Democrats.
