Colorado scores No Child Left Behind waiver

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today applauded the Obama administration decision to grant Colorado schools a waiver from the regulatory requirements of the Bush-era No Child Left Behind law. A former superintendent of the Denver Public School system, Bennet has long railed against the law as well-intended but comically flawed, the "biggest federal overreach ever in domestic policy," he said in a Senate floor speech last year.

In blasting Obama recess appointments, Focus on the Family site turns...

CitizenLink, the Focus on the Family Christian news site based in Colorado Springs, weighed in Thursday on the latest political controversy winging out of Washington. The site reported that, in using "recess appointments" to fill three seats on the National Labor Relations Board and to place Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, President Obama had "stepped over a line and into history." The CitizenLink reporter then turned to Georg W. Bush justice department attorney John Yoo, the author of the notorious 2002 War on Terror "torture memos," to support the argument that the nation was witnessing a major unconstitutional power grab.

Latinos just not that excited by GOP hopefuls

A poll released by Latino Decisions — an organization that focuses on “states in which the Latino vote will play an important role in the 2012 elections” — shows that GOP presidential candidates have low recognition among Latino voters. According to the Latino Decisions poll released Monday, “none of the Republican presidential candidates has been able to captivate or attract the attention of Latinos until now. In other words, for the time being, among the eight candidates, there is no one equivalent to George W. Bush who would attract a significant percentage of the Latino vote.”

What straw poll? A lesson for the Tea Party in Republican...

GOP 2012 presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney has decided to pass on the Iowa straw poll this summer, a warm-up event for the election-year Iowa caucuses, which increasingly have become a sort of warm-up event for the real primary campaigns. Romney's decision is making headlines as a risky move but the fact is non-incumbent winners of the GOP Iowa caucus don't win the GOP national nomination in any kind of consistent way. And the record of caucus winners is even less a predictor for success in the general election. As Romney knows and as the New York Times suggested Saturday, Iowa is now way too Christian right and Midwest parochial to serve as a barometer for Republican America.
