Nothing is stopping them from running. You have to remember just as metro politicians don't understand rural areas the opposite is also true so there has to be a balance. That's just another reason why our REPUBLIC was designed with limited federal power and all other powers were supposed to be left to states. That way you don't have 40 year D.C. Politicians deciding how to live your life in iowa

Yes Congress sucks, that doesn't mean Obama sucks any less. We have Opi here to point fingers at the other side so it's not like it's a one sided blame game

Sadly I don't think they'd have a chance... People would pull the "uneducated, inexperienced" crap out. Same reason we won't get an honest politician that doesn't take cheap shots. They'd tell it how it is

A standard attack since the Bronze Age has been Democrats are weak on defense. Since that is obviously hard to make after killing Bin Ladin, and the drone attacks the coach called in the "Head of the Current Republican Inquisition in Congress the oh so objective Darrel Issa" to try to find issues to hurt Obama close to the election. Gee what a coincidence!

All any fair minded person has to do is to listen to the biased tone and attitude of Darrel Issa during the congressional investigation to see clearly that it's a Witch Hunt! Now Issa who should be at least be trying to look objective as the chairman of the committee goes on the Bill Mahr show to angrily trash Obama as causing the deaths in Lybia for some unexplained evil benefit to to the president as in "Fast and Furious"! Issa is like the guy they keep on hockey teams whose job it is to go out and injure the best player on the other team! I have as much respect for a Mafia hit man as Issa! At least the hit man likely doesn't pretend he does his slimmy work for a noble cause like this rectum Issa does!

Good Idea, or just lowering the bar for the teachers at the espense of those student's education?

Florida Passes Plan For Racially-Based Academic Goals
by 2018, it wants 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanics and 74 percent of black students to be reading at or above grade level. For math, the goals are 92 percent of Asian kids to be proficient, whites at 86 percent, Hispanics at 80 percent and blacks at 74 percent.

I think it's stupid and will cause a lot of butt hurt and legal issues.

That's the benefit of the electoral college, it gives smaller states and rural areas more say instead of a simple majority vote for president. You also have your house reps which are broken into districts.

This is the stuff that community activists need to be fighting instead of being cheap political puppets. If they truly care about racism in America they will fight this

We have such a diverse culture in Florida that this will **** a lot of people off. We have a lot of Latinos, Haitians, Asians, Middle Easterners, and everything in between. This plan is basically trying to say that X race is better than Y race and we really don't care too much about Z race because we think they don't care.
