So, I guess it's going to be President Romney! Interesting how the teacher cut off the conversation quickly when it turned out the kids liked Romney. Even stopped Social Studies early. Daughter's grades should be interesting, she's always loved Social Sudies and Science. I also think she was chosen to speak first because she is Asian, therefore a minority. Must be for Obama. The only thing I told her was next time refer to him as President Obama. Respect the office, however difficult it may be.

“They got in wrong with JFK, but my dad always claimed no, they got it right, just to many dead people were allowed to vote in Illinois.”

Bad news. They still vote ... Dhimmocrat.

If everything in the class was normal the teacher probably voted 4 times.

Sounds like you’ve got an astute kiddo, well raised.

And yes, school polls have been strikingly accurate for decades.

Fingers crossed!

I was born in China, you all owe me, just kidding I'm an American!

With that sense of humor to complement those smarts, she will go far.

Smart little girl you have there! This is proof that kids do listen to the things their parents talk about.

My son was in the 3rd grade last year. One day his class was sitting on the floor in a circle, and the teacher was leading a discussion about what each of them would change in America if they were able. My son enthusiastically raised his hand and said, “The President!”

I wonder where he got that idea from... :-0

The Scholastic poll will be interesting in October. it has been right for nearly every year, including Bush in 2000. Interesting how accurate it is most years, with only two exceptions: They picked Nixon instead of JFK and Dewey instead of Truman.

I agree. keep the title President in there. President Odinga or something like that.

Were they given a “none of the above” choice? Did some abstain, as I would have done?

In 1984, my class was asked who they wanted for President. All but one picked Reagan. That approximately equals the electoral vote that year.

I was shocked when I got into the real world how many productive people were fooled by the democrat party and supported it against their own interests.

My grandchildren are home schooled. Mom attended the University of Dallas. They know who James Madison was.

From the story..."when all the kids were talking to each other about taxes, and even if some didn't know what they were, they knew their parents didn't like them."

One good way to teach a youngster about taxes is to give them the exact amount of money to buy a pack of gum at its sticker price, but don't give them any more, even if they ask. See how they respond to sales tax. They will remember it.

...refer to him as President Obama.

I have never called that Marxist usurper 'president', and I never will.

She told me her teacher acted upset and said "Why would so many of you choose Romney?"

Because they want their daddies to have jobs so they can afford some clothes and new iPhones. Like, duh!

Someone ALWAYS has to pander in some way to the RAT bastard communist pig muzzlim. How 'bout we call him by my favorite name, 0dumb0sh_t!!! That's what he really is. We are in a war against 0dumb0 and the socialist RAT bastard demoRATs, and the time for pandering to the dems & media is long past due. 0dumb0 doesn't deserve one ounce of respect for his deliberate atrocities that he has committed against the USA. It's time we fight back and take our country back, by force if necessary. Good for your daughter that she only called him 0bama. She could have clarified and called him Buruk Insane 0dumb0!

Seems like your raising a good Republican..

I have an adopted son and I did a good job with him also..

He went to a private college and on a bulletin board in his lab class he posted a sign of a ‘hot’ chick..and he made a sign that said..I'm a good Republican, with family values and I love nude beaches.’ came home and asked if I though he did a good job on that poster????? I still laugh about it...
