    Exactly.

    We are in agreement, sir.

    You miss the point entirely. The point is, that he never promised to air certain speeches or other such things before he was hired. How can they possibly ask him to resign on something like this. It's pure racism.

    Folks have lost their damned minds. If you want your kid to see the speech pull up youtube and sit their asses down in front of the computer.

    So where did the White House ask the superintendent to resign?

    I agree, it is silly to ask for his resignation. However, it is this person's right to ask for it. They of course don't have to grant it, but people have a right to complain if they want to.

    Much like I think people are idiots for boycotting a store for saying either "Happy Holidays" or "Merry Christmas" people are going to bitch and that is their right to do so.

    The "dear leader" thing is more directed at how Obama's supporters view him.
