    I would have been okay with it. Believe it or not, but as much as I hated G.W. Bush as this nation's 43rd President, I watched every national press conference he gave. Not so much to scutinize it (thought I've done that with every President since Carter), but because he was our President. Like him or not, I wanted to know what he had to say.

    When has it happened before in this country's history? I know of it happening in some Communist countries, i.e., Russia, N. Korea, China, and in most Muslin nations, but when has such a thing ever happened in the U.S.?

    I'm fairly sure that the Executive has never coordinated with the education department to set lesson plans following a Presidential address beamed into every classroom in the nation either.

    Obama is on the TV every day, what - exactly - is he doing on it now? What, his media guru's figured out he wasn't hitting this tween demographic hard enough? Get this fool off the TV and onto something that matters.

    Reagan spoke to the kids, Bush Sr. did it. No protest from me.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Um, the questions sent to the schools are as harmless (or helpful) as the speech is. Also, it's not being "beamed" anywhere. It's called television. Lord have mercy, these overreactions are just crazy.

    If Bush's speech was as boring as Obama's released text, they'd probably have just gone to bed.

    Yes, its obvious exactly how it gets started. Didn't you know, we have all been Nazi's since 1984

    Yeah, many of them probably would. And guess what, many on the other side that are pissing their pants about Obama the past week would've been mindlessly defending Bush and blasting all the liberals "pissing their pants".

    I laugh my ass off every time one side goes "Well your side would've done it too" completley ignoring that they'd be the current mirror image as well.

    This means you are:

    1. a communist
    2. a Nazi
    3. a liberal
    4. a Muslim
    5. a black person
    6. a Chicago Cubs fan
    7. Michelle Obama
    8. Michael Moore
    9. Sarah Silverman
    10.Judge Judy
    11. an ordinary boring person with some common sense.


    I will defer to you on which one you are...and don't you dare respond and pick 11. That is precisely what a dirty commie would do (or a New York Yankees fan).
