    White House releases text of Obama's 9/8 speech to America's schoolchildren

    The President: Hello everyone hows everybody doing today? Im here with students at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. And weve got students tuning in from all across America, kindergarten through twelfth grade. Im glad you all could join us today.

    I know that for many of you, today is the first day of school. And for those of you in kindergarten, or starting middle or high school, its your first day in a new school, so its understandable if youre a little nervous. I imagine there are some seniors out there who are feeling pretty good right now, with just one more year to go. And no matter what grade youre in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer, and you couldve stayed in bed just a little longer this morning.


    The rest of the speech is on the White House website...

    We really best keep our children from school this day, lest they all turn into liberal Nazi youth!

    In all reality though, this is exactly what anyone could and should have expected. Nothing that hasn't been said before and certainly nothing that won't be said again. As there is no mandate for showing it, I see no harm, even if you believe that it is unnecessary.

    I know you're being sarcastic, but this is how it always gets started.

    I have NO problems with what is contained in this speech and truly hope and wish it will have its effect even if it is only one child.

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

    It's going to be interesting to see him make a speech that is geared to everyone from high school seniors to kindergarteners.
    Talk about reaching out to a broad and diverse audience!
    But if anyone can do it, I suspect Obama can.
    Even if it's a little above the littest ones' heads, I doubt it's going to hurt them any, and they might get something out of it.
    At least they'll get that our president is a nice man, who cares enough about them to talk to them and who says school is important (and that they are important, too).

    It's okay I suppose. As much as I dislike Obama I can't really find fault with the speech.

    Oh no, not at all...In fact there are just as many whack jobs on the left, and I make fun of them too. I only based my humor on the contents of the similar thread before the release of the speech. It's just way more fun to make fun of the crazies! I think we can agree on that!

    And, the whole objective is to paint Dear Leader as a nice man, anyway. Perhaps it will win a few votes from the 15+ y/o students in 2012.

    Agreed! Hope for our nations youth is something that should certainly transcend all partisan lines!
