Mitch Daniels: America’s Vice President

              FILE - In this Thursday, June 21, 2012 file photo, former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels speaks after being named as the next president of Purdue University by the school's trustees in West Lafayette, Ind. To say that new academic standards have yielded strange bedfellows would be an understatement. Republican-on-Republican infighting? Teacher unions linking arms with tea partyers? President Barack Obama working in tandem with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and energy giant Exxon? When it comes to Common Core, forget the old allegiances.

The Obama administration wants more students leaving high school ready for college courses or their first jobs, a goal shared by big corporations. (AP Photo/Michael Conroy, File)

However, a quick read of these "essays" shows that most of the letters say the same things, with the same phrases and statistics. These kids were coached, and a teacher is using our children to further her political ideology.

OWS supporters are doing a poor job of convincing me that they’re not anti-Semites

In a Wednesday appearance on the Russia Today television network, I discussed the violent confrontations between police officers and Occupy Wall Street protesters earlier this week in Oakland, California. I made it clear that I don’t condone police brutality. In fact, I am vehemently opposed to an oppressive police state.
