    Kids Didn't Hear Obama, But Will be Bussed for Bush

    Kids Didn't Hear Obama, But Will be Bussed for Bush - News- msnbc.com
    The Arlington Independent School District, which passed on airing President Barack Obama's live classroom address, has announced that some students will be bussed off campus to hear a message from former President George W. Bush on Sept. 21.
    And the right went all nutso about Obama "indoctrinating" their children....

    Sorry we cant allow the children to listen to the sitting President because it is during class time, but it is noooo problem busing them off to listen to a former President... yea right, nothing partisan or hypocritical there..

    At some point, the nut jobs are going to go too far with the craziness and its going to backfire for them big time. Just like with Terry Schiavo, at some point the straw is going to break the camels back.

    Dude, its TX and they will get to hear from the Dallas cowboys. Bush is a footnote.
    I may be wrong.

    1st off they're the Dallas Cowboys, not criminals.
    2nd they're the Dallas Cowboys and it's Texas.

    If it were as black and white as the OP makes it seem, I'd agree, but it's not -- not the least of which because this trip requires parental consent, and parents could also have requested that children be let out of school to see Obama's speech.

    It's all in the story, but Pete (natch!) didn't mention it.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    Actually I don't have a problem with this.

    However, given your latest posts you must be furious with the indoctrination the children could receive right?

    Hmmmmm let me see ....

    this one is difficult .......

    thinking ......

    thinking ......


    Oh yeah~ I think I see it!!

    some students
    I'm probably just a right wing wackjob, but I see a teeny tiny difference between some students from some school in Texas where the former President resides and every student in the United State of America.

    But wait! There's more!

    It's not just President Bush who will be speaking.

    In addition to hearing from Bush and former first lady Laura Bush, the students will hear from legendary Dallas Cowboys players and North Texas business and community leaders. The event launches the Super Bowl committee's largest-ever youth education program.

    Nice try, though.
