Schock Speaks to Pekin High Students

with one comment

Congressman Aaron Schock (R, IL-18th) showed up 20 minutes late to speak to senior students at Pekin High School as a part of their U.S. Government class.  His first question from the students:

“What’s the importance of being on time?”


I personally think it’s part of the duty of those in public office to educate our youth about government & try to engage them in the process, so I don’t have a problem when Aaron Schock talks to high school students.  However, I have to point out that there were some folks on Mr. Schock’s end of the political spectrum that screamed their throats raw about President Obama brainwashing our children when he gave his televised speech to American students last year.  This isn’t the same thing?

  1. If the Congressman was doing anything like what he was doing, on the prior Friday (i.e. – one week earlier), then it would wrong [VERY wrong] to fault him for his tardiness!!

    I saw, first hand there, how much U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock cares for our District, and its constituents (and their families!!).
