Trump Flip Flops … Or Does He?

The Weekly Standard shouts You Won’t Believe What Donald Trump Thinks The Federal Government’s Top 3 Roles Are.

Indeed, in one breath, Trump says education is one of the top 3 functions of the federal government, in the next he agrees that yes, he wants to push education down to the states. It’s as if he doesn’t see the conflict.

I can come up with 3 possible explanations:
  1. This is one of the many things he is lying about to get elected and momentarily lost where he is in the campaign. Perhaps he wasn’t planning on backtracking on this issue until the nomination was in the bag at which time he will be pursuing Dem voters.
  2. He believes in pushing the responsibility down to the states but keeping oversight at the federal level (which will be the same as it is now, just different verbiage shrouding the truth).
  3. He a pathological liar and the only reason to vote for him is to destroy the GOP that has betrayed us.
I’m good with number 3 because that’s my primary motivation for supporting him anyway. I hope that he will change things but after Obama, I’m quite cynical on that front.
Watch and judge for yourself:
