Posted on 02/26/2009 5:37:09 PM PST by DBCJR
Former President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura W. Bush made a surprise visit to their neighborhood school, Dallas ISD's John J. Pershing Elementary Wednesday morning.
Mr. Bush visited every classroom at the school and stayed for more than an hour.
"He and Mrs. Bush were very warm and inviting and they stopped and acknowledged every person in the school," said Pershing principal Margarita Hernandez. "This is an experience that our children will never forget. President Bush made several students pledge and commit themselves to read more instead of watching TV. He told students that reading is the key to everything, including to being president."
This past school year, the school received a Recognized ranking from the Texas Education Agency.

“John J. Pershing Elementary”
From a time when our schools were named after people that actually accomplished great things.
Glad he speaks Spanish.
Just how many school students do you think know who Pershing was?
W has one more chance to stand up for this country. He should start telling the truth about Obama, the Clintons and all democrats. But, he probably won’t talk about “his own kind”.
How wonderful! You know how to crap on someone’s parade.
Sounds like you do not live in Dallas.
That was totally un-called for and extremely snarky on your part. Bad day?
No, ex-POTUS’s with class don’t do that. Then there is Carter and Clinton.
Surely you can do better than, “snarky.” Do you live in Dallas? Any idea the demographics? Any idea how much trouble the school system is in? Any idea that the City of Dallas is debating on taking over DISD?
Pershing followed Pocho Villa right into Mexico to get-er-done. Doesn’t happen anymore.
Yea how many know who Washington was???
I graduated from high school in Southwest Oklahoma. Another language, usually Spanish was a requirement for graduation.
In Texas, I hope it would be more than 3.
Surely you can do better than, snarky. Do you live in Dallas? Any idea the demographics? Any idea how much trouble the school system is in? Any idea that the City of Dallas is debating on taking over DISD?
Does all that take away from his visit or impact the price of eggs in China? It sounds more like he ranks helping and encouraging more than you think it’s needed.
I'm tired watching facts of shootings and horrible crimes being perpetrated on Texas land owners while our brave border patrol officers continue to be fired on, on a daily by Mexican Mafia members pushing drugs into the U.S. Our agents have been left impotent because of restrictions in protecting their lives and our liberty and property. Numerous violent episodes continue to be covered up by our liberal media. Their winks and nods continue to shovel these crimes under their dirty rugs. MSM/Drive-By media.
Don't get me wrong, George Bush is completely at fault for the sorry state of affairs with our Mexican border. He had Ramos & Campeon prosecuted by a snake oil traitor named Johnny Sutton. Sutton prosecuted and locked up Ramos & Campeon even though there was overwhelming evidence that they shot a drug dealer while smuggling drugs into the U.S. George Bush's answer to the boarder patrol agent's heroic measures resulted in him giving the drug smuggler unprecidented rights to sue even though the suspects had criminal records.
Locking up the good guys to further delineate our border and laws is what Bush is/was all about. I don't know how Bush sleeps at night with Ramos & Campeon being jailed for doing their jobs and in fear for their lives every day while in prison. He should have also pardoned Lewis Libby.
Now the WH is just occupied by an @ss.
You are beating a dead horse. If you truly were concerned with the fates of Ramos and Campeon you wouldn’t give GW Bush a second look. He no longer has any power. To do ANYTHING!!! Get it? Stop hammerin the idea! We Know! You continue to kick a dead dog and some of us are sick of lookin at it! Do something positive! What you are doing, blaming and bashing GW Bush, changes nothing for anyone, ‘cept maybe you.
just my 2 cents
Every major city in this country has the same problem. But if they are not the border you don’t care. Been going on up here for years. AND NO, I did not vote for these fools!
NO, snarky is exactly what it was. The post had nothing to do with your post. It was SNARKY!
I don’t give a rats ass about your opinion when you automatically call me stupid because I don’t live in Texas! I’m well aware of the problem on the border. Make a smart argument, then we’ll talk. Ramos and Compeone were on my radar. That’s not what the whole damned thread was about. That’s what made it SNARKY!!!!! Do not presume to lecture me about the country, it’s policies nor a president thereof! Do not presume that you can cower me because you live under the scourge of the Mexican border! You dont’ like it! Do something about it or move damn it! Don’t lecture me on policy nor Presidents, I’m a little busy right now raising a family and supporting a husband who isn’t here right now!
