What is the Republican congress doing to improve educational standards in the US? Especially in the field of science? It appears many of the Republican Senators and Representatives are particularly deficient in that area.
When can we expect some Republican legislation?
What is the Democrats plan to improve educational standards and results in America? When can we expect Democrat legislation?

In the US reporters are not required to submit their stories to the White House for approval before printing. Are you suggesting you'd like to change that? Does North Korea's model sound better to you?
Such knee-jerking from Americans is embarrassing. It really shows off the lack of education of so many of our citizens.

CB, this question of yours makes no sense. The scenario you describe is actually much more similar to what HAS been happening the last 4 1/2 years. The press has fawned over this president and passed over so many incidents that should have had their little noses on the ground searching for the facts. The Founders of this country thought a free and independent press was so important to keeping the government accountable to the people that they included that freedom in the 1st Amendment. The media have dishonored that freedom by their LACK of questioning over incidents that should have had them clamoring for information.

When George Orwell originally wrote "Animal Farm" to illustrated the dangers of socialism and communism, he included a preface complaining about how the British were ignoring things they knew to be true and not reporting them out of a desire not to criticize their WWII ally - the USSR.
"The sinister fact about literary censorship in England is that it is largely voluntary.... Things are kept right out of the British press, not because the Government intervenes but because of a general tacit agreement that 'it wouldn't do' to mention that particular fact."

That is what we have witnessed the last 4 years: It "wouldn't do" to question Obama too closely about:
Bill Ayers or Jeremiah Wright or Tony Rezko
Black Panther voter intimidation
Solyndra
John Corzine and MF Global
Fast and Furious
Just to name a few.

The media we depend upon to be "watchdogs" over our freedoms have acted instead as "lapdogs" for this administration because of the overall media's own biases. But it would appear that even they could no longer stomach what has come to light over the last two weeks.

Dear Dipstick,
my original comment specified the voting patterns of "this region", something you might've known if you had made yourself aware of the complete conversation.

and none them them were ultimately denied what they sought.
Last time -you (through your columnist) are ignoring the bigger picture and denying the IG's actual conclusions. The IRS admits they "profiled" based on obviously "conservative" points of view. They requested information that was neither required, and in some instances, illegal for them to ask for. The information they demanded was voluminous in nature (i.e. every tweet, blog post, speech given, books, etc your organization has given/ list of donors (some of which were given to political opponents- that is a fact-, some of those donors suddenly faced audits after their names were given - that is a fact/ is anyone in your organization seeking office now OR IN THE FUTURE/ and on and on)
Regardless of motivation this clearly required a great deal of time and effort and expense to put together this kind of information- NONE of which was required.

And correct, to this point no application has been denied, but just as "justice delayed is justice denied" so it could be argued that "political expression delayed is political expression denied" - and that should trouble even you.
Some of these application took 2 YEARS and some that have been in process for 3 years are STILL pending.
But go ahead and come back and repeat for the fourth time what the columnist said, I'm done with you on this.

WH Benghazi emails have different quotes than earlier reported
By Major Garrett
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-5758494...

The Benghazi attack is a political controversy. Republicans claim the administration watered down the facts in talking points given to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice for television appearances while Obama was running for re-election. Republicans on Capitol Hill claimed they found proof in White House emails that they leaked to reporters last week. It turns out some of the quotes were wrong.

Republicans have charged that the State Department under Hillary Clinton was trying to protect itself from criticism. The White House released the real emails late Wednesday. Here's what we found when we compared them to the quotes that had been provided by Republicans.

On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation."

But it turns out that in the actual email, Rhodes did not mention the State Department.

It read: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an email written by State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland.

The Republican version quotes Nuland discussing, "The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda's presence and activities of al-Qaeda."

The actual email from Nuland says: "The penultimate point could be abused by members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings."

The CIA agreed with the concerns raised by the State Department and revised the talking points to make them less specific than the CIA's original version, eliminating references to al Qaeda and affiliates and earlier security warnings. There is no evidence that the White House orchestrated the changes.

For those interested in a less hyperventilated look-

http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdes...

"The larger problem with the scandal culture in D.C. is that, because each example of government wrongdoing quickly morphs into a partisan effort to attack the White House (the same was true when a Republican was President), the actual remedies for the problems uncovered become almost beside the point. A U.S. congressman will probably go farther in his party hierarchy by roughing up Obama than he will by helping to pass legislation to ensure that all diplomatic posts have adequate security. Likewise, the I.R.S. abuses suggest the need for both major tax reform and changes to campaign-finance laws, while a future dragnet of news media phone records could be prevented if a strong federal shield law were in place. Donít hold your breath waiting for any of these policy changes." RL
