Get ’Em While They’Re Young, Congressman



District 1 Congressman Paul Gosar stopped by Julia Randall Elementary School on Monday.

Representative Paul Gosar (R-Prescott) visited the students at Julia Randall Elementary (JRE) on Monday, Nov. 4 to meet the students and answer questions.

Mostly, the students wanted to know if Gosar had met the president and what the White House looked like.

“Does the White House have a pool?” one student asked.

“No, but there are lots of roses,” said Gosar.

“Why roses?” asked the student.

Another student asked how many times Gosar had gone to the White House.

He said five times.

But the cutest moment came after the students learned that Gosar was a dentist and had pulled a tooth out while on the floor of the House.

“So, how many teeth have you pulled?” asked a student.

Gosar laughed. He said he could not really remember.

What's with the Roundup? The headline is totally misleading from the story and somewhat makes it seem as if Congressman Gosar is the only politician guilty of such a malicious criminal act as that of visiting a school.

Did you post stories about Presidents Obama and Bush and other politicians violating some unwritten social standard that politicians shouldn't visit schools? No, you didn't.

You claim high journalistic standards, but your bias is showing. You might want to see to that.

I agree. The lead is totally inappropriate for what the content of the story was. Are you nefariously reading into Congressman Gosar's motives? Guess we will no have to add the Roundup editor to the ranks of those at the New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, etc. How much is the current administration compensating you for your overtly biased journalistic pablum?

You know else bothers me about this piece? From a journalistic point of view, it's not signed as to who authored it and it's in the news section, when it's clearly an editorial piece. I think the Roundup needs an editor or manager who knows the difference between news and editorials and has some sense of journalistic integrity because it's clear of late that the Roundup is sorely lacking in that department!
