    I am still curious where you obtained this information.
    I may be wrong.

    I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education – and to do everything you can to meet them
    What if that goal is to get to the age that you are allowed to drop out, and the do so?

    This was poorly said.

    Like I said, it was poorly worded.
    Can you not agree with that?

    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?

    do you mean he's broke, or what?

    I think he's trying to create a bunch of cheerleaders for tomorrows health care speech.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What is the purpose of this speech again?
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    really? does his speech contain some sort of code relating to healthcare reform?

    It has nothing to do with kids in politics but everything to do with a kid coming home and saying the president was nice and said good things.

    Parents review his speech on the nightly news and find it to be "inspiring", tomorrow night is his televised health care speech and those emotionally "inspiring" speeches will be connected.
