    Funding of Bush Speech Draws Fire; Democrat Calls Education Broadcast `Paid Political Advertising'
    The Washington Post | October 3, 1991| Kenneth J. Cooper; Eric Pianin

    House Democrats criticized President Bush yesterday for using Education Department funds to produce and broadcast a speech that he made Tuesday at a Northwest Washington junior high school.

    The Democratic critics accused Bush of turning government money for education to his own political use, namely, an ongoing effort to inoculate himself against their charges of inattention to domestic issues. The speech at Alice Deal Junior High School, broadcast live on radio and television, urged students to study hard, avoid drugs and turn in troublemakers.

    and there is a difference between congressmen critizing Bush then pulling your children out of school and spreading lies about the speech.

    Yes they did. They said it was using government $$$ for political purposes...that is certainly debatable back then AND now.

    But did they try to get people to keep their children home from school in fear of being brainwashed?
    Did they compare him to Hitler recruiting Hitler Youth? Or the ChiCom?

    no they want these people to respect the President even if you don't like him.
    I respected George Bush even though I didn't like him, he was my President.
    Shit I even supported his choice to go into Irag. I defended this when my friends knocked my friend and I for having an american flag ribbon on our door about the time he invaded.
    I don't care if you critize Obama, that is what America is about but when you start pulling your children out of school because you can't them listen to the POTUS for ten minutes then you are garbage to me.
