…I would think adults are all crazy.

I haven’t posted anything here in a long time, but when I saw this story, I had to write something.

I have to hand it to Bill Bush, the reporter, for this lead:

School districts across central Ohio learned yesterday that the list of things parents want their children protected from — drugs, predators, violence — now includes the president of the United States delivering a “stay in school” message.

As he notes, George Bush also addressed the nation’s students in a similar back-to-school message and I don’t remember stories about parents ranting and raving then.

Parents, grow up, please.

  • LOL. Yeah. Such a load of shit. People have lost their damned minds. It was predicted.

  • Amen, Amber.

    You don’t have to like the man, but you do have to respect the office. Isn’t that what we always heard when Bush was in office?

    If you don’t like it, pull your kids out and home school them.

  • Again, the reaction on the right is hilarious.

  • I guess. If you think mean and selfish and angry and is hilarious.

  • So, the crazy parents said their biggest problem with this was that the Dept of Ed sent teachers a lesson plan, including asking kids to write a letter to the pres about how they could help him achieve his goals. Well, it seems Bush the 1st did the same thing when I was in high school. I don’t remember hearing a peep about that…(Of course, I also don’t remember ever being asked to write such a letter.)

  • Ugh…and there’s more, from the Orlando Sentinel:
    There once was a political operative who loved to tell crowds he had a simple way of explaining to children the difference between Republicans and Democrats.

    “Republicans get up and go to work,” he would tell his son. “Democrats get up and go down to the mailbox to get their checks.”

    This man not only talked to his son about Republican values, he went into public-school classrooms and talked about them as well.

    That man is Jim Greer ? the same Jim Greer who, as chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, just threw a nationwide hissy fit, claiming that the classroom is no place for politics and Barack Obama’s “indoctrination.”

    One Seminole County mother, Barbara Wells, remembers the day Greer spoke to her son’s sixth-grade class. “My son said he made some sort of Hillary Clinton joke,” she recalled.

    But you know what? Wells didn’t pitch a fit.

    She didn’t call up the local TV station to scream about Republican indoctrination.

    Instead, she advised her son: “Whatever you are told in life, remember there are two sides to every story.”
