"Loyalty only matters when there's a hundred reasons not to be-" Gen. Mattis
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
The only reason that I think it can be okay is if it was some sort of youth club for children, where parents voluntarily allow their children to be exposed to topics relevant to that club. If there was such a club as a "support Obama club" or "young democrats club" or something along those lines, and (here's the qualifier) that the parents have given consent to allow their children to be exposed to the favored political messages.
This isn't using children to further specific political message. This is a different style of parenting, which as far as I know the parent has every right to teach whatever policy to their children. Is it good policy, bad policy? That doesn't even matter. If the parents have given consent, then I don't give a rats ass what the political message is.
This event, of course, is not the case. It seems the parents did not know anything about the song, and therefore did not give any consent. Which is a violation of the parents trust.
Let's get this straight. This was one teacher who's class learned this song.
Just one. In the entire country.
What is the big deal? Why is this important?
Hey those lyrics are catchy!
If one of these kid was mine they would need the 1st Marine Amph Division to hold me back from destroying this Teacher and Princaple. I hope that some of the parnet come forarwd and demand that they all be fired and all Mr. Obama crap be removed from allof th school except the Official Picture of the Prrsident which is required by US Codes to hang in all Puplic School's.
