A new friend of mine, Ann Marie Banfield of Cornerstone Action in New Hampshire, during a town hall meeting in Manchester, NH, was able to ask former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) his position on national education standards and the extending reach of the federal government into education.  She said that he is uniquely equipped to address that having been the Governor of a state that is looked to as a model for education reform.

You can watch her question and his answer below:

His answer in this town hall at the University of New Hampshire in Manchester is spot on.  However, in an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto back in March 2010, Governor Romney said that the Federal government should be involved in “overseeing our schools or at least a portion of our schools."

So which is it?

    1. Put the kool aid down, Bob… step away ;).  I have some issues with Pawlenty, but I generally like him and he has good experience.  Romney – what’s the difference between him and Obama again?

      Oh, yeah with Obama you know where he stands, LOL!

  1. Everyone likes Mitt Romney’s position on each and every issue.  Because Mitt Romney’s position on each and every issue changes according to the wishes of the crowd.  With Mitt Romney, there’s no “there” there.
