I'm assuming the principal must be a Democrat. Otherwise, there's not a chance in hell that he would be surprised. Either that, or he's lying. ...or more likely both.

Democrat = Lying

"Tracy said Republicans, Democrats, and independents have frequently come to the school to talk to students."

I would like to see a list of who and when.

Why not invite RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie if they want to be fair?

Aiming to ease tensions, School Board member Raimond Bowles has asked New Hampshire Republican state chairman Jayne Millerick to also speak to the social studies classes.

Why didn't they invite the head of the GOP instead of a state chairman?

"we don’t always have control over what people say once they are introduced"

YES YOU DO! The principal should TELL THE SPEAKERS what their limitations are .. not assume the speaking will be fair and balanced.

Tell him that the next time a left winger comes to campus and says "question authority, challenge the president" he should extend that "question authority" to question the motives of those commanding him to question it. Many are communists.

May sound harsh but much of the "anti(American)war" movement was socialist sponsored. Some participants may have been red dupes, unaware of the backing agencies, but that was their own fool fault.

"During the presentation, McAuliffe told students that due to Bush’s mismanagement of the country, 70 percent of college graduates will not be able to find a job upon graduation. He also told students that if the war in Iraq continues as it has, there could be a reinstatement of the draft. "

*Ahem* Yep. . . there is no differene between a Republican and a Democrat. . .< /sarcasm>

"After requesting to visit the school, Terry McAuliffe was allowed by Principal Forrest Ransdell to come to teach what the principal believed to be social studies classes on democracy and the political process."

I thought that schools, if they felt the need, invited people to speak. They should have been somewhat concerned when the leader of a political party requests to speak to a bunch of impressionable kids.

What is Principal Ransdell's personal political view? Does it happen to meld with McAuliffe's?

He also told students that if the war in Iraq continues as it has, there could be a reinstatement of the draft.

Typical Partisan Leftist Democratic Lies. Don Rumsfeld has categorically stated there will never be a draft as long as he is the Secretary of Defense. "We're past that" he has said on National TV. If I know this, Terry McAWFULiffe knows this too. As evidenced in this public school case, just like his partner Billy Jeff Blythe, they'll talk to anybody who will listen. Anybody!

Oh, they are aware. Infinite FReepers in Columbia MO have given them website addresses of socialist sponsors of anti American rallies such as ANSWER. Answer PROUDLY LISTS PAGE AFTER PAGE OF ITS TERRORIST,PALISTINIAN, SOCIALIST, COMMUNISTS SPONSORS. One idiot at the "peace rally" in Jefferson City stated he knew ANSWER sponsored these rallies, provided signs, etc but "we are just using them". I don't think he convinced anyone from the Pro America side.

Don't discount that the kids see through this kind of crapola. Most kids are way too cynical to trust anyone who they believe to have ulterior motives. Terry McPunka$$ probably left alot of kids thinking that all Democrats are wild-eyed, overly dramatic pinheads.

Beyond outrageous, sheer propaganda, driven into the heads of a captive audience of kids.

This man, like the clintons, is out of control and totally out of line. No wonder the clintons appointed him the money man, he has the scruples of a dirtbag.

This has been burning me up for a few days. Can someone tell me the difference between this and what Newt Gingrich was alleged to have done with his college course? This was everything the democrats accused of Newt - only worse! The kids in this class do not have the option of walking out.
