Only the brainless idiots who voted for this poser should be required to listen to him. That leaves every schoolkid off the hook...

Whether it was "bad" or not isn't the point. The point is that it was inappropriate and showed poor judgment. By the way, when Elder Bush did this same thing back in the '90's, the oh-so-hypocritical Democrats called for investigations and hearings.

President Obama wasn't putting any politics when he made a wonderful speech to students. Those wackos from the right need to get their heads examined and understand that the president is helping and encouraging responsibility for our nation's youth.

And the hypocritical republicans didn't protest at all about Bush's speech did they?

Impressed....I am impressed. I couldn't muster up the stomach to listen to any of it. So I did what I could and read about it like everyone else. Not much easier, but probably required less antacid.

Thanks!

If you hate Texas, why do you stay here? I lived in Ohio for like a minute, I hated it. So I LEFT? Curious as to why you would stay here. I bet you would enjoy California.

It's no surprise that Thornberry would vote against a law that would take some control away from local school districts. Control being the operative word. Too much control by locals will leave children behind, especially special needs kids.Congressman Thornberry need only look in his hometown backyard to see that changes need to be made.

Texas is just about the only state that represents the idea of america you idiot...Get out of your comfortable box and think...
Democrats and Repubs are one in the same. Both Crooks! They are not there to help you, they are there to help themselves! Before you go bad mouthing Texas, you should try working for a living. By the way you talk you have drawn un-employment at least once in your life. Nothing is free, in Texas we work for a living..

I do agree that union was beneficial in the past, but it doesn't work anymore. Again, greed and laziness is the result of union labor. If this state was aloud to enforce border laws that are written we could control the illegals. Big government has control of that and so does big business. I am not a believer in sending products we engineer overseas either. I don't care what color a man or woman is as long as they are legal and willing to work.
Sorry I got testy with you but I love the land in Texas. I guess its just where a man is born he sees the beauty in it's landscape.
It does break my heart to see foreigners disrespect it.
