But anyway, Rush Limbaugh has to have the same air time broadcast into the schools as Obama, to be "fair".
IMO, it's not what Obama wants to say, it's that he wants to do this at all. Releasing the script means nothing because there should be no script.

Without seeing what others have posted, here's my take.
The republicans don't have a "right" to be given equal time on TV after Obama's monthly attempt to convince the American people to support his agenda.
The truth is, they shouldn't have to demand equal time, or even ask politely for it. They should be offered equal time to present an opposing, or alternative view by the main stream media, for the sole purpose of better informing the American public. The big 3 television networks have eagerly offered air time to president Obama every time he has requested it. He has used this unprecedented amount of TV time to "sell" his visions, policies and overall agenda to the American people, with little or no air time given for the presentation of alternatives.
This is a disservice to the public, and resembles more closely a state run media like Venezuela has, rather than the free and open press we are supposed to have.

The White House plans to release the speech online Monday so parents can read it. Obama will deliver the speech at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va.
