    The Department and Congress must rely on research to inform our education policy decisions, and must have confidence that the research is impartial, rather than generated to justify policy or political decisions. The credibility of the Department in applying standards of scholarship in evaluating reports sponsored by the Department is critical.

    Credibility is the last thing that is critical to the current GOP and their surrogate talking heads on FOX and talk radio. What is critical to them is repetition. They say something is true only to have it disproven. So they say it again and once again it is disproven.

    At this point someone who thought credibility was critical would stop saying things that had been disproven. But what do they do? Yup, they say it again.

    That is how they create "conventional wisdom" and get false "facts" burried inside the electorate's subconcious.

    I look forward to the day that people like you, who think credibility is critical, take back control of our government and demand that only proven facts become conventional wsidom.
