    The schools system is organized and funded by the government - and part of schooling is actually history and *gasp* politics and even *gasp* laws and rules! Both state and federal.
    It's impossible to keep politics OUT of the education system - and, this particular song, I see nothing wrong with it.
    I know what's wrong with the deification of a sitting POTUS by schoolchildren? I don't see why anyone would be opposed to indoctrination into a cult of personality. Seig Heil!

    I understand the contention with that, though
    Finding problem with *part* doesn't condemn the whole.

    The song would be fine if they took that part out ... or simply make an entire song dedicated to all presidents.

    None of these songs even mention the fact that Obama is the first black POTUS, so the "black history month" excuses for the overt political indoctrination of school children = epic fail.

    Everytime I see "POTUS" I think "SCOTUS" and it reminds me I should be studying instead of yammering on the net.

    I totally agree. The only problem is that this goes on legally in private religious schools across the US and no one ****s themselves over that. So in comparison, as pathetic as this Obama worship is, it just doesn't look that bad.

    Bbecause they're private religious schools - they're not public-domain and, thus, not privy to certain issues that pertain to *public.*

    To this point, now I'm seeing some of these opposition points in a different perspective.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Anti-religion bigotry is rearing it's head.

    I guess the fact that they are "PRIVATE" and people choose to send their kids to the school (or not) makes any difference with you?
