Bobby Jindal's Tea-Party Pandering Gets Him Nowhere

Fight on Common Core is Dividing Louisiana.  (The New York Times, 8/18/2014)

He flips!  Mr. Jindal, a Republican who many believe has presidential aspirations for 2016, has become an outspoken detractor of academic standards that he ardently supported when the state originally adopted them in 2010, along with more than 40 other states. Many conservatives, who say the standards were foisted upon states by the federal government, regard opposition to the Common Core as a litmus test, and critics of Mr. Jindal’s say he has changed his views mainly to court Tea Party supporters.

He flops!
