How about this?
School district that barred students from hearing Obama will bus them to Bush speech.
The Arlington Independent School District in Texas decided not to show President Obama’s address to students live yesterday because it reportedly didn’t want to interrupt its regularly scheduled lesson plans. However, the district has now decided to bus its students off-campus on Sept. 21 to hear President Bush speak:
District officials said it’s part of a Cowboys Stadium field trip that the North Texas Super Bowl Host Committee invited 28 fifth-grade classes to attend several months ago.
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.

OH MY FREAKIN GOD! They have to get PARENT SIGNED permission slips to GO! There was ALREADY a field trip day planned for that day. They could have gone the aquarium (again), the zoo (again), or gotten to be at the opening of a MAJOR new arena where a man who is NO LONGER PRESIDENT and holds NO power is going give a speech. Its COMPLETELY diff!!

Yes AM...I am delusional. And easily swayed. Please do tell me who the appropriate people to consider roll models, as you seem to think your opinions are the only ones that make people NOT delusional. What an asinine statement. They are going to see a new arena open....not to look for role models. Bush and co are not sending curriculum back to the school to influence the CHILDREN one way or another. AND the parents are being given a CHOICE to opt out. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
