In an effort to improve students' knowledge of American history, increase their civic involvement, and deepen their love for our great country, President Bush began the announced this morning new History & Civic education initiatives in public schools. Bush later headed to Nashville, Tennessee to campaign for Lamar Alexander, and to attend the Pledge Across America event at East Literate Magnet School. Also today, the White House released an official response to Iraq's alleged unconditional acceptance of UN inspectors. The White House Response

Meanwhile, First lady Laura Bush, along with Lynn Cheney, hosted a symposium on Women of the West in the East Room of the White House. Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: This is more than academic failure. Ignorance of American history and civics weakens our sense of citizenship. To be an American is not just a matter of blood or birth; we are bound by ideals, and our children must know those ideals.

Great to be here early tonight if only for a while. Saw President Bush lead in the pledge today and heard his great speech afterwards. We are so blessed with this great man.

Thank you for the post!

Yay ! I'm still awake ! Tired tho'--been doing Dance, Dance, Revolution with the kids all afternoon--my ol' legs are aching !

Saw parts of two speeches today, President Bush seemed a little ummm..out of sorts, maybe irritated (??), but the pictures here show him smiling, so maybe it was just that he was tired

Thanks rintense, I am listening to shortwave radio. Does anyone have any favorite frequencies? What stations and when do you get them the best. It has been a while since I have tried to listen to any of my favorite stations around the world and I have forgotten where they are.

LOL! President Bush and Lamar are dressed like twins! By the way, President Bush's two speeches today were wonderful! He is one determined man regarding Iraq and his remarks about American history and how our kids don't have a clue about it were fantastic! He is bringing the American spirit back to America in a big way! I am so proud to call this man Mr. President. I just can't tell you how proud I really am! And rintense, thank you so much for the Dose. I appreciate it so much!

Using Teddy Kennedy to help him begin to destroy the leftist anti-truth-in-history agenda in public schools and Universities is ONE MORE touch of brilliance!

I love this guy!!! He's ahead of everybody on every thing!!

History was one of my most interesting classes all through school. It seems like it is not taught like it was when I was in school which is a shame.

I didn't see last night's Dose until this afternoon and you two were a riot. How does it feel to be legends? I laughed the whole time I read BOTH threads. Mo and MJY cracked me up too.

These are some great pics, rintense. I love the one where Dubya is peeking out the window of the WH! Why was David McCoullough with him at the WH?

I know what my kids are learning about American History because we talk about what they're reading in homeschool, and I try to read what they're reading so I can discuss it with them. They know about their civic duties as far as voting, etc. We had a primary here in MA today. I can't wait to see what happens with the Lt. Gov. race; it's gonna be interesting because the woman that Mitt Romney picked as his running mate is NOT the person the Repub. State Convention delegates picked to be his running mate; they picked Jim Rappaport. So this primary will decide that. I'll have to watch the late evening newscast to see what's up with that!

It's not being taught like it used to be because of the leftist teachers that hate America, hate God and hate everything we stand for. The President can't say that so he is putting programs in place that will force them to teach the truth about what a great country this is. He quoted statistics about how little kids know about our history. He said we must teach our kids about the American cause of freedom around the world. He was great!

I agree with you that history is not taught as much as it should be. I think that in 4 years of high school and 2 years of junior high I only had one history class. I believe I only had one history class in college, too (one semester) and that was not American History. I am fascinated with history and I do lots of reading on my own, but I am embarrassed about how much I don't know.

She does look great, "luminous" is the word that comes to mind, I remember one other pic of her, having lunch with a whole bunch of trrops, she had on a periwinkle-color suit and she just shone in the crowd

Just heard that Healey is beating Rappaport 2 to 1 in his summer home town of Brewster on the Cape......if Pubbies give Mitt Romney who he wanted as a running mate...and the independents help him in Nov......MA could have a GOP governor!

When I was in school, back in the dark ages, we had history every year of junior high and high school except for a semester of Civics. If students do not know their history, then they will not know where this country has been or where it is going. That is very important today. I loved history and thought about majoring in it in college but I changed my mind after the first year. I still enjoy it a lot and love to read. In elementary school, my favorite books were the small books about our Founding Fathers and other important historical figures.

No matter how many times I say that it isn't possible to love this President any more, he comes up with still another way. THANK YOU, US SUPREME COURT; THANK YOU GOD!

I think the algore majored in putting his finger in the air to see how he should think and what he should say. Did you see him blaming Governor Bush for the latest Florida voting fiasco? He looked like a total dope. If he gets the nomination, Bush will beat him like a drum! I saw a new California poll today - even there, Bush would beat Gore 52% to 40%....hehehehe...
