“You want us to believe that we aren't farther along because the Democrats are compromising. We believe it's the other way around. The difference is that we're right and you're lying.”

“Tell us all how this country as a whole is farther along. As far as you being right and we are lying goes, you have your head so far up some Dems backside you will never be able to see the truth. Tell us all how an unemployment rate in excess of 17% makes us better off? Tell us all how having a half witted healthcare plan that most cant afford makes us better off? Tell us all how Obama's continued lies and denials makes us better off? Tell us all how Obama's forcing a gov't shutdown by not granting the same extension for the ACA that he granted less that 5 weeks later makes us all better off? How many more do you want me to have you tell us all's do you want us to put out their for you to try to answer? You may want to start with these, since they are obviously going to take you awhile to tell us all the truth.”

“Many of us are disappointed with his presidency. Of course, it's difficult to know where it could have gone with compromise from the other team. Regardless, it's miles ahead of a conservative administration.”

RubyMontana on Nov 23, 2013 at 13:59:56

“With compromise from the "other" team, we would all be on Medicaid, NOW, and looking for doctors.
The truth is, Obama doesn't need compromise. He just needs his executive pen. He learned a LOT from Bush, didn't he?
In fact, he's a better Bush than Bush was!”

lmcjerome on Nov 23, 2013 at 12:28:53

“"Disappointed" is a mild word for what's happened and how some feel. There are still some friends who believe that whatever he does/says is gospel truth. There's that all good versus all bad dichotomy again!. As for as conservative administration, depends on who is elected and who are the advisors and the cabinet. With all the lies, it's like how can we believe the republicans are as bad as the extreme liberals have repeated ad nauseum? Better to be independent and try like heck to get to the facts of everything. Will make some mistakes, but at least we've done our own research! Would like to not have to be so diligent, but who we elect can't be trusted to do their job.”

“The other team as you call it are the only one who stopped this clown from spending the US into oblivion. You will see that health care will end up as total government control. Just remember I told you so.”

“The concerns of the people have been addressed, the people who voted for him. The remainder don't want progress. They want their fears subtantiated. They don't want to win. They just want to be right, like a little child.”

“The situation with obamacare is so obvious that those who post anything positive about it simply have no credibility..”

“if he wishes to be POTUS, then he is the president to ALL the people.
if half want answers and the other half choose to be satisfied with him regardless of his performance, then he needs to respect the opinions of all. the american people voted him into office. all the american people deserve him to best represent and respond to them.”

“Tea is about being on the Right of every single issue, the extreme right. Small government is a smokescreen, attractive to small-minded people who think a cosmopolitan nation of 300+ million can be governed by a small government. Sheesh!”

“That's your point. It's your justification for your mindset.”

“only reason he got votes was that he "tricked" the voters into thinking he was black. Translation...if they had known he was white they wouldn't have voted for him, regardless of anything else.

It's got nothing to to do with my justification or mindset, it's more than obvious. Racism is a two way street...and the wrong way in both directions.”

“That's ridiculous. You're just another corporate hack. Our teacher union was involved in the teacher evaluations, and they are quite rigorous, largely because educators were involved in the process.”

“Or, we could just come to the realization that the tests aren't valid. They don't measure what they purport to measure.”

Allthosewhowander on Oct 30, 2013 at 11:18:18

“Most testing products are not research based, and offer little validity. Many are simply 'products' rolled out by Pearson. McGraw-Hill, etc. with little, if any field testing or quality control. Unfortunately, the profits for these companies are through the roof, so their lobbyists will continue to influence educational policy and rhetoric.”

“Not really. The best students teach themselves. Good teachers inspire students to learn on their own. How will you devise a test for inspirational leadership?”

MarcDel on Oct 30, 2013 at 18:00:16

“That's the problem. A view that the best students should be the focus. Yes good teachers inspire students to be inquisitive and enjoy learning. Such skills are taught every day in colleges with good education departments. Much of it is called affective skills. Skills related to the learning environment. Such skills or knowledge of such skills can be tested.”
