More on Rick Perry’s spotty public education record - in June Perry signed a $172.3 billion state budget that included $4 billion in cuts to public schools and cut financial aid to 43,000 college students. Last week Education Secretary Arne Duncan told Bloomberg News “Far too few of their high school graduates are actually prepared to go on to college… I feel very, very badly for the children there.” Duncan went on to say that “Texas may have the lowest high school graduation rate in the country,”

Earlier this week Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham criticized the Obama administration’s success in Libya by releasing a statement that said “We regret that this success was so long in coming due to the failure of the United States to employ the full weight of our airpower,” Now, according to a leaked August 2009 diplomatic cable released by Wikileaks it seems as though only a few years ago McCain and Graham were trying to assist Libya by rebuilding it’s eight C-130 cargo planes. You can read the entire cable here.
