    I saw your sarcasm and just added my own. But I'm not sure you'd have such a passive outlook if they were singing:

    His English children call Him, "Lord,"
    His Spanish children say "Seņior,"
    And German children who call Him "Herr,"
    They are calling His name everywhere.


    "O Shuyo," call the Japanese,
    "O Tju Ah," echo the Chinese,
    "O Hallelujah," they all exclaim.
    In each land they are praising His Name.


    Children are meeting in Brazil,
    Canada, Mexico, Taiwan,
    England, New Zealand, and Germany.
    Hear them all, as they sing joyfully.
    But just replace "Lord" with "Obama" and all is well... Amirite or amirite?

    The obvious solution to this epidemic is to establish the Department of Non-partisan School Singing, which will catalog and correct the imbalance in which presidents/politicians are receiving lyrical praise by breaking up school choirs or insisting there be an even amount of praise given to all presidents/politicians regardless of your affection for them or appreciation of their policies. Contact your local Congressmen with your concerns to drum up support for this legislation.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I have 2 points to make:

    1) This is showing that children can be anything they want in life. Rather than praise for Obama, this is a school providing positive reinforcement to kids, hence the use of the phrase "Yes we can".

    2) When I went to grade school, Eisenhower was praised quite frequently by the teachers and staff. Was it because he was a Republican? No. It was because he was the president of the best nation on Earth.

    I think you are reading WAY too much into this, but let me tell you this much. I was against much of what Bush represented, but he was my president, and I respected that. I am now against much of what Obama represents, but he is my president, and I respect that too. Both Bush and Obama love America. If they didn't, I seriously doubt that either would have ended up as president. I don't think much of the vision either had for America, but I will at least grudgingly accept the fact that both of them love this country. To believe anything else is to dishonestly hope the worst for America, while at the same time, talking out of the other side of my mouth.

    Bush and Obama - Bad for America, but neither of them is a bad person - They are just patriots who happen to be wrong.

    Ordinarily I'd agree with you about Obama, but my guess is you'll have no problem with the above video and show you have no credibility on the isssue.

    The video above is not something I would subject my children to, but it is not a public school, there is a difference.

    Not to him there isn't.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    What if it was something like

    "Bush signed the Patriot Act
    His opponents said that it was whack
    But Bush was smart and he was wise
    He ignored their many cries. . . ."

    I'd think you'd flip the hell out no matter how many "yes we cans" were in there.

    I agree that *if* the songs were JUST about encouraging students to do well in school it's no big deal - but our current president shouldn't be honored and revered and sung about. That's not how this country's suppose to work.
    I think if the song was praising Bush then most of these libs would have a problem with it and would probably be the ones posting the articles. Especially if those songs praised the Iraq or Afghanistan wars and Bush as a liberator of those people in those countries. Public schools should be as politically neutral as possible.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
