Gov. Mitch Daniels claims teachers used illegal tactics to defeat GOP state education chief

How is Purdue going to survive the presidency of this idiot? Daniels is STILL going on about how unfair it was of us to give his boy Bennett the boot, now whining, with no evidence, that teachers were electioneering on the public dime.

Somebody needs to call these guys to pick up Mitch, who can't seem to face that Indiana simply rejects his "reform" plan of attacking teachers and the public school system...

and yes, after he leaves Purdue, there may not be much left.

4. Is this an example of

what he referred to recently as "belly aching"? Your party has super
majorities in both houses of the General Assembly every other
elective state office, five of seven U S Representatives and one U S
Senator. And you belly-ache about losing this one.
Remember "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts
absolutely." I realize this may upset part of your base for
2016 when you run for the presidency. That will be another
completely different ball game than the ease of running for Governor
of Indiana on the Republican ticket.

5. And then there are these spiteful and petty events:

They now want to make the position of superitendent an appointed, rather than elected, one.

The state board rammed through changes to teacher certification, despite Ricks asking them to wait another couple of weeks.

7. I really don't like the precedence set by the reclassification of the superintendent's job...

...to an appointed position. Especially since the General Assembly has a supermajority in both houses. This was clearly driven by sour grapes. It's so obvious it's not funny.

Voters pass something you don't like? Pass a law to negate it.

Voters don't pass something you do like? Pass a law to approve it.

I put nothing past these clowns.
