The Texas Education agency and the federal Education division who is overseeing the programs need to open a investigation all along the border here in Texas and to include all the heavily populated Hispanic School districts where the illegal aliens hide out in the open.

I agree but we also need an investigation into this:

In a statement Monday, Missouri State Fair officials called on the Rodeo Cowboy Association to “hold all those responsible for this offensive stunt accountable.”

Also Monday, several statewide and congressional politicians weighed in on the controversy which has garnered national headlines.

U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis, said he was “amazed that in 2013 such hatred, intolerance and disrespect towards the President of the United States could take place at the Missouri State Fair.”

“Our fair is supposed to showcase the best of Missouri, instead, it showed an ugly face of intolerance and ignorance to the world,” Clay added.

Gov. Jay Nixon was asked about the controversy while in Kirkwood Monday. He called on the Office of Administration to review the contracts of those who hosted Saturday’s rodeo.

“I think that’s a lot better and more reasonable approach to this than canceling events that Missouri families and others look forward to each year,” he said.“The Missouri State Fair is an important part of the traditions of our state and when people mess with that tradition, certainly it upsets us.”

Missouri Rep. Steve Webb, D-Florissant, said he was “incensed” by the incident.

“Sometimes apologies just won’t do. While I do not believe this represents all of rural Missouri, the racial undertones of a taunted rodeo clown dressed as our nation’s first black president is what the nation woke up to this morning,” Webb said.“It’s time for all of us, from both rural and urban areas, to fight this type of sentiment with a united front. Leaders of this state need to do more than accept a pressured apology.”

Webb called on Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to cancel his annual State Fair ham breakfast Thursday in protest."
