#1 The three, insisting the teacher either add John Kerry’s photo to the montage of presidents or remove the Bush photo.

He has not, so far, won a presidential election, but they think he should be on the board anyway. Guess that would make his people feel good about themselves.

You know the Kerry campaign is in deep doo-doo when they start pulling out the Special Olympics "Everybody gets a medal" tactics.

Well, yeah.

They're Dims, after all.

#3 I don't know about the New Jersey election laws, but if you got enough people angry, they can go to the school board and let the board know if they don't call off the Leftist Totalitarian Principal* Warfel, thay can and will be recalled...

*Using the term "inflammitory politics" is a tipoff.

#4 A good time to make those NEA membership dues mean something. Sounds like she's got a serious grievance against her employer.

#5 She should tell 'em she'll put up a picture of "President Gore" too. That'll get them cooing and purring...

#6 This lady actually had a picture of President Bush, the American flag, and the Declaration of Independence in her classroom? And she lasted a whole month into the school year? Whoa, get on the job, moonbats. We're talking a major right-wing nut job here.

#7 If you'd like to let the school know how you feel, here's a web page with all the email addy's, even Principal Jim Warfel and his 3 Assistant Principals...

#8 School officials would not talk on camera but insist nobody here has been fired.

We can still hope.

#9 Lex, I'm sure the NEA (Teachers Union) will be all over this on her behalf to get her re-instated and have an apology issued....

.... in about 50 years.

#10 Ugh..Any RBer's know of any COBOL or VB jobs available in say Sheridan Wyoming or Billings Montana?
NJ isn't America anymore, I have got to get out of here.

#11 In totalitarian countries you're in deep shit if you DON'T have a picture of your president in the classroom.

The dems are no less dictatorial for taking the opposite stance.

So now what's going to happen? Are they going to push for a law that you have to remove all pictures of a president in public places a certain time before an election?

Welcome to the Brave New Democratic World.

#12 JM,
Have you considered Colorado? There are a lot of SW eng and programming jobs there. If you like mountains and gorgeous scenery, you can't beat Colorado Springs. Try a monster.com search.

#16 It's New Jersey. East coast Democrats consider patriotic people evil. The people of this state will be voting proudly for John Felcher Kerry what do you expect?

The principal needs a good smack down. He is a typical micro managing tool to I bet. Wonder where the money in education goes? It goes to principals like this twit and the folks above him. It doesn't get to the classroom.

This is so totally out of line someone is going to get sued and will lose. This story isn't going to be pretty for this principal. This tool will connive and lie to get out of this. The message to this school board should be clear. Fire this guy, today.

#17 Well, I may differ from the general consensus here, but I think it is just shocking the way this teacher is so blatantly trying to influence her students into voting for Bush!

Oh, wait, they're 13 and 14 YO middle school students... never mind...

Of course, if the Dems get their way, these kids will be voting soon, God help us. Britney Spears for President, anybody?

#18 LOL The wife comes home from work. Sees this story on FOX and goes balistic. She teaches school. This principal is lucky he is way over there on the east coast. She has been Republican her whole adult life.

#19 I wrote to the school after reading about this on Michele Malkin's blog. Got back a reply (also shown in this link. The schools statement is at odds with the original article and with what the teacher said tonight on O'Reilly. For me it's a little less clear cut than yesterday, and more of a Rashomon situation.

#20 I wonder if your b!tching and complaining changes the ground situation towards Bush and away from Kerry.

My guess is no.

FD: I will be voting for Bush in the fall.

#21 That's OK Throons---It's really those images of Lincoln and FDR that I want eliminated from all pictorial displays of American Presidents. Damn statists, both of them.
You OK with that, or you gonna bitch?
