    @ schecter4 - The Dept. of Education does not educate anyone. Nor does it provide any teachers. It was created in the Civil Rights movement to ensure that all schools are equal and integrated. To make sure white schools aren`t well equipped while black schools had no equipment.

    That has been accomplished. Now it funds studies for idiots in California who wanted to re-write all the text books in Ebonics `cause it was easier than teaching them to read and write correctly.

    Get rid of DOE.

    I agree. DOE is a waste. It doesn`t work. Let schools determine their own curriculum and how to teach it. Give each kid a credit to go to a public school of their choosing. The schools will become competitive (i.e., getting the better teachers, equipment, etc. in order to attract more students), and the good ones remain open while the crappy ones will be forced to close.

    Amazing how capitalism can apply to EVERYthing!

    ... and the kids in the crappy ones go without education. Great.

    Education should be nationalised. If a school wants to set up independantly and become privately funded then fine, but there should always be a nationalised school system to fall back on.

    @Buiadh, no the kids in the crappy leave to go to the better schools... which make the crappy ones close even faster. Why would a parent leave their kid in a crappy school if the child weren`t forced to go to a crappy school simply because of where they live?

    Yeah, no, the Department of Education isn`t effective. Let`s kill it... f**k fixing it. F**k trying to come up with difficult answers to difficult problems, screwing making tough descisions that don`t appeal to most people because its your civic duty as a representative of the people. Screw all that; we`ll abolish the DOE, and we`ll get rid of this whole energy nonsense (we have plenty of coffee, we don`t need more energy). Let`s make a flat tax and then lets abolish the other taxes... let`s make everything simpler and simpler until we have a national tribe.

    When you take complex issues and lie and tell the nation that there is an easy solution, you do a disservice to the intelligence of the American people.

    That doesn`t sound so bad; I like those policies. What`s the big deal? Department of Education and Social Security definitely need to go.

    Ok, he stumbled on his words a lot. So would anyone if you`re put in front of millions of incredibly judgmental people--not even our great Lord and Savior Obama is immune from that.

    Hell, his policies are better than Paul`s in most aspects. His only downside is that he`s incredibly religious, so just that might make me vote for Paul over him.

    Well, it is possible. Crazy, I know! Doesn`t that just blow your mind?

    Of course you guys knew that, because if you didn`t, I can only assume that you`re calling me a liar without substantial reason for doing so. And that would be one of the lowest forms of humanity. I know you guys aren`t doing that, because I know you aren`t sub-human.

    Anyone can send their kids to a better school if they work their f`ing ass off. We`re doing it for our daughter, and plan to do it for our other two kids when they get old enough.

    Gerry-The Dep`t of Education`s founding was catalyzed by the need to reintegrate schools, but also has the unenviable task of recommending curriculum standards for all accredited schools (public and private) in the US. Without those standards, many portions of the country (which shall remain nameless) would fall even further behind in scholastic standards.

    "Ok, he stumbled on his words a lot. So would anyone if you`re put in front of millions of incredibly judgmental people--not even our great Lord and Savior Obama is immune from that."

    This is such a baited question. You are waiting for someone to say, show me the Obama clip. Then you will show the interview where he was exhausted from the campaign trail and accidentally said he was on his 57th state when he really meant he was on his 47th. But I ask specifically show me the Obama debate clip where he stumbles. Not in an interview, not in a speech but in a debate. You said anyone would stumble on their words in front of millions so a clip of Obama stumbling in a debate should be easy to find.

    Just for you, markust123. This is from the `08 primaries: BEFORE he became president.

    I actually wasn`t trying to bait anyone, honest. But I`m a nice guy, so I`ll post the video.

    Now, there are many legitimate criticisms of Obama, but this is not one of them. I was simply pointing out a phenomenon that Obama wasn`t immune to and I wasn`t using the fact that Obama stumbles as an argument against him.

    What I WAS doing however, was rebutting the OP`s tacit assertion that stumbling=stupid--which it clearly doesn`t.

    @M_Archer, the link you attached was Obama misspeaking not stumbling on his words like an idiot. Although calling the Prime Minister of Canada "President" was a pretty big mistake it is not him stumbling like you said everyone would. You specifically called Obama out on this. Show the video of him stumbling over his words in a debate.

In the nearly 40 years it`s been around all it`s done is strengthen the teachers unions stranglehold on school budgets while the literacy rate has been steadily going downhill, despite large raises in it`s own budget.

    If you want an idea how bad the Republican Presidential candidate is going to get his ass handed to him check out this video. This is President Obama answering questions at the Republican retreat in 2010. Fast forward to any question and answer. President Obama destroys every talking point and lie the Republican`s throw at him. He made the Republican`s look so foolish they said later that it was a mistake to allow cameras in.

    This is not about minor blunders here or there. You do not go to a debate unprepared. You do not run for president if you aren`t aware of your own strategy. Finally, if you`ve already made the first two mistakes, which would make you a moron by themselves, you do not start making an argument you have not thought through. Never mind the point you are trying to make...

    Silly republicans.

    Obama prefers town hall speeches to debates, and gaffes are gaffes, doesn`t matter if it`s in a debate or not.
    There`s mis-speaking, and then there`s making a fool of yourself in a televised debate watched by millions... This was the headline story all over the British BBC news today, and I presume other countries around the world.

    Besides, Crakrjak, you dodged (as usual) answering Markust`s challenge: "You said anyone would stumble on their words in front of millions so a clip of Obama stumbling in a debate should be easy to find... Show the debate video clip of him stumbling then Crakr. If this happens I`m sure there are clips from debates. But we`re talking debates here don`t show a speech or a press conference. "

    As I`ve gotten older, wiser, and more mature, I`ve tried to move away from partisan politics one way or the other. I`ve genuinely tried to remove myself from the ideas of "left" and "right" politics and tried to be impartial. Some of you who follow these threads on IAB will note that I have deliberately stayed out of such debates for months now (while following them as a reader).

    Yet I can`t get past the fact that, from the Republican Presidential candidates to oppose Obama, I see:

    1. Perry, a religious conservative who appears possibly drunk and often stupid, even inarticulate.

    2. Romney, a religious conservative who wears magic underwear to protect him from evil.

    3. Bachman, a demented religious conservative who`s a homophobic young-earth creationist, who`s husband appears very gay while running a "Pray-the-Gay-Away" clinic for the mentally unbalanced.

    4. Paul, a maverick moonbat, who is always going to be a non-runner, as his ideas are too radical and will never win an election against the mainstream (read: rational people).

    5. Cain, a religious conservative, who wants a flat 9-9-9 tax on all sections of society (against every functioning western society in the Western World, which has a graded tax). Ignoring for now the allegations, he`s a pizza magnate, who if elected President of the US, will be the first election he has ever faced (never mind won).

    Sorry to say, if this Motley Crew is the best the Republicans can put up against Obama, then we`re going to see Barry in office for another four years. And maybe a Dem President in office for much longer than that unless the Repubs get their sh*t together next time around. People are getting smarter, it`s how societies evolve. And unfortunately for the Conservatives, every single one of those people has a vote...

    Forget Token the pizza boy. Nobody thinks that he stands a chance against Bazza.

    I could respect Ronny, but he`s about the only one of the candidates that doesn`t sound like a craved housewife or a drunken halfwit and let`s face it, he`ll never survive the early rounds because he`s too sensible.

    Obama bin Laden looks set to rule for another term. I think that`s sad. Your nation and the world deserves strong US leadership, new ideas, no baggage ... and supportive upper and lower houses.

    The response to this incident highlights, to me, one of the central problems with democracy. Guess what, the guys human, and humans forget things. Especially under the immense pressure they`re all under. Is anyone genuinely shocked about this? Surprised? I don`t understand the reaction. We`re all saying he`s lost what ever chance he had, but why? Because he suffered mental block? Does no-one take into account his policies, attitudes, opinions or how good a leader he would be? Don`t you see these things are becoming irrelevant if we promote this idea that all candidates have to do is look nice and speak well? Modern society is an idiot.

    Perry, at least, has a good track record of growth in jobs and business in Texas, Obama had nothing but barely 2 years as a senator and some community organizing.

    "However Obama is jokingly known as President teleprompter all over the world."

    This lie is going to come back to haunt conservatives. In reality President Obama does exceptionally well without notes or a teleprompter. He is calm, cool and articulate during debates. Obama was good before but now he has the Presidential experience. He is going to rock! I can`t wait for him to mop the floor with Romney.

    I really feel for the fiscal conservatives. The religious right has taken over the Republican party and turned it into a joke. Just look at this ridiculous list of candidates. Only John Huntsman has the intellect to be President and he is being ignored. The rest are an embarrassment to the institution.

    On a side note the spell checker showed me that I had spelled intellect wrong.That`s funny.
