Laura Bush Backs Obama’s School Speech

While in Paris, helping to promote global literacy as part of a United Nations meeting, former first lady Laura Bush came forth to support President Barack Obama and his decision to speak to the nation’s school children.  Associated Press quotes her as saying it is “really important for everyone to respect the president of the United States…There’s a place for the president of the United States to talk to school children and encourage school children.”  

Mrs. Bush, a former school teacher/librarian stated that parents need to send that message as well.  The former First Lady also stated of parents who decide to keep their children from school because of the President’s speech, “That certainly is the right of parents to choose what they want their children to hear in school,” but again stated “I also think it’s also really important for everyone to respect the president of the United States.”

Thank you, Laura Bush for stepping outside of political partisanship and understanding what is in the interest of our children and our nation.
