How could anyone ever believe anything she says from now on after that ridiculous response? That's beyond belief. The Left tosses aside four dead Americans by telling us that they were all grownups and knew what they were getting into when they signed up for duty. Yet they howl and scream when soldiers die in an all-out war in Iraq and Afghanistan. This shows that it's not about American lives at all. It's all about defending their failed ideology.
Hey, I'm all for states' rights, and I hope all 50 of them opt out of Common Core in the long run. But can you be serious, Ms. Barkoukis, when you object to the feds collecting data such as the Social Security numbers of students? I mean, doesn't the federal government ISSUE these numbers?
I have no idea what you just said. But man, it was well written, Rob.
Sad, but true...Robinson's going to win this debate because the average American voter understands only what is presented at face value. Unemployment rate's down? OK, the economy must be good and getting better. We can try educating the low-information types with concepts like the workforce participation rate and watch their eyes glaze over as they go to the voting booth and vote Democrat, just like they've been told is good for them.
Dude! Rutgers is the New Jersey State school. I'm not here to tell yo that Harvard and Princeton have intellectual luminaries any more, but come on...Rutgers is the equivalent of 13th grade.
In another striking development, Rutgers students protested the substitute speaker, potential 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, for her refusal to properly staff the consulate in Benghazi, and for her callous remark of "What difference, at this point, does it make?", when testifying before a Senate investigative committee in January, 2013 on the same topic. No, wait!!! I got that wrong. They didn't do that at all. My mistake...
I'm not exactly sure of your point. Have there been calls for your candidacy that I have not heretofore seen or heard?

Getting Repeal Right

I appreciate the effort! I think some are redundant or vague ("integrity", "honesty", e.g.) but right on the money for the most part. But let's be honest - Americans in the video game age are NEVER going to coalesce around a platform this long and broad. I agree that the policy wonks should adopt a platform this broad, but the public needs a far less complicated set of principles to hold on to. My personal belief is that the next Republican candidate should hammer home three points: 1) Personal responsibility, 2) Limited government and low taxes, and 3) a strong military. Is it more complex than that? Of course it is, but the low information voter dominates the political landscape now, and that's, unfortunately, who we have to attract to our side. "KISS" should be our mantra: "Keep It Simple, Stupid"!
The word, "Apartheid" is simply not one most people use in everyday conversation - even, I would bet, if you're the Sec of State. This was a well-considered phrase, and Kerry is appropriately being criticized for it. His only "mistake" was that he regrets the flak he's taking over it. It is difficult to wash off true colors.
I suppose if you repeat something often enough, you can convince a certain percentage of the people, perhaps even including yourself, that it's true. Republicans have made many recommendations to improve the delivery of health care, including tort reform and allowing greater competition among insurance providers, even across state lines. But any recommendation that Republicans make that doesn't involve expansion of "health care" to a definition that includes every potential need one may have in their lifetimes isn't considered debatable. Remember that at the time this health care monstrosity was passed, Democrats held both houses of Congress, and it mattered not one bit what Republicans said - it was summarily ignored. Dems own this disaster, and you sound ridiculous arguing that, although Obamacare is unpopular and excessively costly, but that Republicans can't do better. Sometimes, Mr. Progressive, what you HAVE is better than what you GET with new legislation.
How did you get a $5,000 deductible? Please tell me what plan you're on!
