    True story, but heck, it's page one out of any successful politicians playbook!

    It is a message that needs telling over and over again.

    Who are you, and what have you done with our TD?

    I agree with you that the contents of the speech are rather benign and think it is silly to make a HUGE deal about the President talking to the nations kids; it's that broad brush you appear to be painting with that I am speaking to.

    I can't help but wonder what the Libruls would have been saying had Bush done this.

    I am not sure how anyone can think that Obama isn't a nice and personable person; I agree he is way out of his league, and economically challenged moron and likes to associate with radical elements, but I can't see anything that is "mean" or "despicable" about the man, other than his obvious arrogance.

    I think the message is right on; although I am not sure of its purpose other than prepping kids for some major changes to their education coming down the pike which one can hope means a REAL effort to educate and not indoctrinate; what if we REALLY taught them math, economics and English? Wouldn’t that be radical?

    What was that you just said about a broad brush?

    This kind of speech is harmless, regardless of which party it comes out of. Kids will just be texting under there desks anyway!

    I don't remember it when Bush or Reagan did it, but I would hope I would not complain. As I mentioned in another thread on this topic, I would love to see, as one example, Condaleeza Rice doing public service announcements on education. She is a perfect example of a black woman who succeeded in today's world, would make a great role model for young kids. Educational success is something I don't think should be a partisan issue, and any one doing something to encourage kids to stay in school should be praised.

    Personally, I think every President should do this. It makes students feel that someone in a big position actually gives a rat's ass about their education and well-being.

    I disagree, because before long, it would be just another political pulpit.
