Methinks an invite to the inauguration is in the works. And highly doubtful it would be the cheap seats.

Let me see if I understand the basics.

On one side we have a candidate calling and supporting a high school girl who was verbally assualted by a teacher in her high school.

verses

A candidate who calls and supports a Fluke who demands free contraception so that she can have unlimited sex with hundreds of men.

Folks, it’s all about the values. And the choice is really quite simple. Do we vote for goodness and decency? Or vote for depravity and evil?

YES to that idea, and also to the girl in the horrible AP cheap shot photo with Romney bending over. Romney should invite that little girl as well to his inaguration, both to sit up front and center.

Oh, yes. Look for Romney to be involved in some personal stories in VA, PA, OH, FL, MI.

If things keep rolling our way we will see him invest in the personal touch also in NH, CT, MN, NJ and even CA!

A great idea!

Romney did the right thing calling the girl... A young boy was told by his school bus driver that his mother should have aborted him after she saw the "Romney Ryan" sign in his families yard.

The liberal haters are out in force...Conservatives need to stand together against liberal bullies - Thanks Romney..

Versus

a pResident who sends FORM letters of condolence to the families of soldiers killed in action in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Funny how public scorn from millions of outraged people can sometimes cause that to happen.

It was the usual non-apology apology.

If it was the same, “Apology,” that I read yesterday, it wasn’t an apology.

Here it is...

"I'm very sorry for all the chaos and negative attention that has surrounded the school in the past couple of weeks," she wrote. "What I meant as a light and humorous remark during class has developed into a huge conflict between students, faculty, parents and neighbors. My words were never meant to belittle Ms. Pawlucy, or cause any harm, and I truly regret that we have come to this point.

If you check out a photo of the offending teacher you won't be the least surprised.

We have such great, successful teachers; those money driven SOBs in Chicago, the cheats in Mass.and MD who got caught cheating on the certification/licensing test and that recent college professor who made students take a pledge to support Zero!

People like this teacher just adds more support to the notion that liberalism is indeed a mental disorder.

“... and I truly regret that WE have come to this point.”

Like Obama towards the end of his convention speech (”the change was always YOU”) ... she passes responsibility to the community ... “that we have come to this point.”

The girls family has since decided to get all their kids out of that school.

Why not have them at the next debate and thank them for accepting his invitation. Very nice gesture.

It was not an apology. She should be made to wear one of those pink T shirts for a week. Suspension without pay or wear the T.Shirt, your choice, choices have consequences.

The principal probably has a stack of these 'apology form letters' on file in the office...
