Remember how Republicans...

...liked all the components of the Affordable Care Act but hated "Obamacare"? Well, from a piece in Bloomberg about the Iowa Freedom Summit:

[Republican messaging guru Frank] Luntz ... explained just what the Common Core obsession meant for the right. When he asked voters generically about the idea of national education standards, they backed them by a 3-1 ratio. When he asked about “Common Core,” only 30 percent of them backed it.

To be fair, many liberals are against the Common Core State Standards Initiative too. Personally, I don't know enough about it to have an opinion.

P. S. No word of any "Sister Souljah Moments" this weekend.

They hate it because the President is not a Republican. Because only Republicans are dedicated to only making changes that fully preserve white privilege. Only Republicans are dedicated to changes that will hurt the poor only. That minorities make up a big part of the poor is a feature, not a bug.
