    When Bush spoke to school children, the Democrats investigated and held hearings

    When Bush spoke to students, Democrats investigated, held hearings | Washington Examiner



    The controversy over President O's speech to the nation's schoolchildren will likely be over shortly after O speaks today at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. But when President George H.W. Bush delivered a similar speech on October 1, 1991, from Alice Deal Junior High School in Washington DC, the controversy was just beginning. Democrats, then the majority party in Congress, not only denounced Bush's speech -- they also ordered the General Accounting Office to investigate its production and later summoned top Bush administration officials to Capitol Hill for an extensive hearing on the issue.

    It simply amazes me how short our political memories are.

    This just goes to show how hypocritical and opportunistic politics are in this country.

    Essentially what you're saying, is that the Democrats who made a big fuss when Bush spoke to children and who aren't doing the same over O, are hypocrites. But then, by the same logic, those who are in an uproar over O speaking to school children but weren't when Bush did it are hypocrites, too. No?
