QUOTES OF THE WEEK:

“I don’t know what is worse, nominating someone merely because he’s been nominated twice before or nominating a liberal supporter of Common Core because he has a familiar name,” asked former New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien, who spoke at a day-long conservative forum in Iowa Saturday featuring a long list of potential presidential candidates.

“Now it’s a presidential campaign issue. A few would-be Republican candidates — notably former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — steadfastly support the standards, proving yet again that stubborn consistency in the face of mounting evidence isn’t a virtue.

But the rest see the Common Core as polls show many parents view it: as a confounding and expensive mess that leaves their children to flounder. For any Republican who wants to win, the right side is the parents’ side.”
