    And These People Want To Run Your Health Care / Update – And Your Kids’ Education

    Via Daniel Foster, writing at National Review Online, How Vindictive Is This Administration?:

    I’m not usually the conspiratorial type, but watch Gov. Chris Christie explain how the Obama administration disqualified the state of New Jersey from hundreds of millions in education funds because some clerk in Trenton turned in the wrong excel spreadsheet:

    What possibly could go wrong?

    Update:  Apparently everything. Thanks to a commenter and someone who e-mailed me, it appears that the NJ Education Dept. was not fully forthright:

    The U.S. Education Department on Thursday released a videotape that appeared to contradict Mr. Christie’s claim that federal officials refused to allow New Jersey to fix a mistake on its application. In a statement, Mr. Christie faulted Mr. Schundler for providing false information about the presentation.

    “I was extremely disappointed to learn that the videotape of the Race to the Top presentation was not consistent with the information provided to me by the New Jersey Department of Education and which I then conveyed to the people of New Jersey,” Mr. Christie said in a statement. “As a result, I ordered an end to Bret Schundler’s service as New Jersey’s Education Commissioner and as a member of my administration.

    So I have updated the post title.

    Hmmm…New Jersey was denied Race to Top funds. Republican governor. Louisiana was denied Race to Top funds. Republican governor. Does anyone know the breakdown of states who got funds and the party of the governor.
