When Bush spoke to students, Democrats investigated, held hearings

I think the rabid paranoia about Barack’s speech to the students somehow indoctrinating children was ridiculous and speeks to the level of how fractured our “post racial” society is… but I am increasingly disappointed in the childish antics of our elected officials. You’d think the Republicans would have learned from the Democrats mistakes after Bush Sr’s address to students, and not poured oil on the fire. Will they (both parties) ever tire of looking stupid? 

That didn’t stop Democratic allies from taking their own shots at Bush. The National Education Association denounced the speech, saying it “cannot endorse a president who spends $26,000 of taxpayers’ money on a staged media event at Alice Deal Junior High School in Washington, D.C. — while cutting school lunch funds for our neediest youngsters.”

Lost in all the denouncing and investigating was the fact that Bush’s speech itself, like Obama’s today, was entirely unremarkable. “Block out the kids who think it’s not cool to be smart,” the president told students. “If someone goofs off today, are they cool? Are they still cool years from now, when they’re stuck in a dead end job. Don’t let peer pressure stand between you and your dreams.

    That was Bush Sr. who gave a speech to students, not Dubya.

      I need more sleep than I got last night, that’s for sure.
