Obama Speaking to Schoolchildren

A little commentary on Obama's upcoming speech from The Wonkette blog.  In the comments, someone says that the reason people are in an uproar is because they sent out packets for the children to work on which included a question asking the kids to list ways they can help Obama.  I think people are blowing this out of proportion.  I don't think there was much of a political angle here.  I can't believe people are going crazy over this, as if it's the Antichrist speaking to their children.


  1. It all comes down to ideological bullshit and the declining state of political discourse in this country. Ideology trumps fact and nothing matters except holding power or knocking down those who do. I remember Reagan giving a "say no to drugs" speech to school children and G.W. Bush (the first one) talking to school kids. Oh, and let's not forget where George W Bush was on the morning of September 11. He was in a school reading and talking to students. Sometime I fear for this country.

  2. Did you see his speech on health care? Awesome! I can't believe some jerk yelled out, though. At least he handled it well.

  3. They sure are making a name for themselves...
