An HISD principal agreed with some offended parents that lyrics played at an elementary school's Black History Month assembly were "overly political."
Last week, a presentation stirred some parents at Smith Elementary in northwest Harris County with lyrics about President Barack Obama and another song referencing President George W. Bush. The Parent Teacher Organization put on the program and three first-year teachers organized the songs and performances, according to a statement from HISD.Lyrics included, "Obama, Obama, this one's for you," and another song says, "Oh, I tried to believe in George Bush, I tried to rush but it's ashes to ashes now," according to a video posted online.
HISD says students who participated had signed permission slips from their parents and they danced to the music but did not sing or recite lyrics. Copies of the lyrics were given to the parents, but not the students, the school district says. http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/HISD-principal-apologizes-for-overly-political-4327061.php
Actually, the reverse is true, the way the economy is going under Obama. I don't think anybody with a brain can say things are better under Obama than with Bush.
