Blunt not quite truthful on state's education facts
Matt Blunt's hometown newspaper is calling "bullshit" on the governor's recent tour touting his pro-education policy.
In an op-ed, the Springfield Newsleader says that Blunt is not truthful. The Southern Baptist preacher of my youth always said "a half truth is a complete lie." The Newsleader's summary is WHAT: Gov. Blunt's self-congratulatory speeches are less than honest. WHY: State's higher education funding is nothing short of tragic.
Funny that Attorney General Jay Nixon has made improving education in Missouri the cornerstone of his campaign, Matt Blunt attempts to pull a Jeff Roe fast one by saying that he is good on education and it is Blunt's own newspaper that cries "BS."
