    I watched Mitt Romney today talk at two speeches about education.

    This is the study Mitt points to again and again.

    http://mckinseyonsociety.com/downloads/reports/Education/Worlds_School_Systems_Final.pdf

    Did he think we wouldn't read it? He keeps saying class size doesn't matter. It does say children in smaller classes can improve by 8 percentage points. It also says that's not as important as, well, for those who are interested in what their candidate is saying, read it. Then you will know if he is telling the truth or not.

    Remember, Mtti attended private schools with classes that had 11 to 14 students per class. That's all he knows.

    This will become the next big talking point.

    As if the plummeting quality of education today isn't ALREADY a laughingstock, regardless of how many dollars you idiots keep throwing at it?

    Mitt is flopping around like a fish out of water.

    The only way he won the primaries was by carpet bombing the airways with negative ads about his opponents.

    That won't work this time.

    He's up against what Nathanial Green would call a "modern animal" in Obama.

    One drone strike on Fox News and Limbaugh the national IQ would triple overnight.

    I know you didn't read that study that fast. And you think you're smart? Hilarious!

    My comment didn't require reading the study, Derp.

    In NYC, we spend $18,000 per student and 1/3 of the high school students drop out (and become Democrats), of the balance who "graduate" fully 2/3 of them cannot function in college without remedial math and reading (they become Union Bosses).

    That is the definition of a failed system.
