    Though, I'm assuming he his trying to make Obama into some Hitler like villain, by posting some video of people shouting his name, and posting a definition from wikipedia.
    I was just asking for clarification, and hoping for an answer that wasn't so idiotic.

    Heh cute. I believe we are all entitled to lay out our comments as we see fit as long as it is within the rules.

    There's nothing analytical here to discuss. At all.

    Is there a policy being discussed or criticized here? Nope.

    What are we to take away from this?

    That if young black kids are devoting themselves to academics by meeting the president's challenge, it's a "cult of personality"?

    What is the people who name EVERYTHING, including their dogs poops, for Ronald Reagan? What about the people who complain about how HIGH their taxes are right now, when they're lower than they were during most of Reagan's term? Or those that complain about amnesty for illegals when the first president to do it was their beloved Ronald Reagan?

    Let's analyze that cult of personality, shall we?

    Or can we recognize that every president ends up developing a bit of a cult of personality because it's the nature of the office in the media age? Indeed, I would question one who doesn't - because it means they're completely ineffective in developing support from their followers.

    But, instead we can just sit around and pretend that the other side is worse because it suits our partisan needs.
    Or maybe people are concerned that schools are teaching kids in an un-objective manner. Tell me, since when has "I am a <insert president name> scholar" formed a necessary part of a child's curriculum?

    If I was an Obama scholar, I don't think I would admit to it.

    True dat. I believe there's a rule that governs staying on topic, too. Obviously, the topic isn't Your Star's opinion of the quality of the content of Mr Vicchio's post, but rather the actual content of Mr. Vicchio's post.

    We have gotten off topic about that, you are right. V posted something. Redress responded, than we started this meta conversation about Redresses response. I guess I will stop posting about it. You probably should too.

    They can do whatever the hell they want.

    If the post had been about the teacher not teaching critical thinking, a point would be made.

    But that's not the point. It's just more unmerited criticism for something that the president actually had nothing to do with at all - aside from his challenge to students to take their educations seriously.

    My complaint is that there no point being made here; but people are acting as if there is.
