My generation should have been so lucky. Maybe the drop out rate would not be 33%. Somebody should have shown how important it is to be educated.

He is the glowing example of what a person can do to become a good citizen.

Your generation should have taken more personal responsibility and maybe then they would have been properly educated. For a little history lesson, this is the type of propaganda that the NAZIS used in the 1930s to indoctrinate the youth of their country. Teaching them to turn in their parents and neighbors for aleged transgressions to the state. Yes Hitler was a great speaker too.

I hope they hear the one about how the anointed one will create or save millions of jobs...lets see the jobless rate is now the highest in 29 years...great job Che Obama has done. Hopey/changey I love it.

Why can't the great OBAMA get us out of Iraq and Afganistan as he promised to do during the campaign to elect him....he is killing countless civilians with his war and needs to be stopped. Where are the anti war protesters when we need them?

So I guess when the Republican Gov. visited my grade school, my mother should have kept me home?

Did the republican governor ask you to support his socialistic plans? Did he try to recrute you into his political agenda? Good try but dumb analogy.

hmmm...reminds me of the "Brown Shirts" indoctrination by Hitler...

I guess socialist dictators think alike...

It would be helpful if one of you who believe that Obama is a socialist could enlighten us on the definition of socialism.

I bet there will be no takers.

Come on "ditto heads" show us your intelligence. Do any of you have a clue about socialism?

I bet you cannot respond without going to the dictionary.

You just say what you are told to say. Duh!!!!

Why don't all you subversive "patriots" put your anger to better use and channel your energy into community service.

So you are seriously asking if little children should be put into an atmosphere that plays homage to a serial liar, a person who has never made his own way in life, but rather had the made by others, a man who supports the slaughter of innocent life and wishes to eradicate lives of inconvenience - sure all children should be made to stare in awe of that.

It was better when "W" (the lying war monger) read to the children while America was attacked.

How inspiring was he?

Let's care more about the unborn than the born.

No healthcare public option for American children? How moral is that?

7:23 - no he should have rushed off in a panic and frightened the children over something he coul dnto possibly done nayhting about. You must have beena great parent.

By the way why does every idiot liberal think everyone who calls Obama a lowdown stinking baby murderer supported George Bush? I never voted for the guy, nor did I support him. I think he should have been impeached via article 4, section 4, and he was a horrible President, one of the worst, except of course for Obama and Carter. The difference is Bush, misguided as he was, never could be described as a pussy, which Obama surely is. Obama is a gutless coward, an effeminate empty shell of a man, and a liar. He is a scum.

Maybe reading the Constitution would be helpful for you to get a grip on democracy.

Obama is your president and you are undermining our government.

How quickly the Democrats forget. From the Washington Post on Oct. 3, 1991:
"House Democrats criticized President (Geo. H. W.) Bush yesterday for using Education Dept. funds to produce and broadcast a speech that he made Tuesday at a Northwest Washington Jr. High School.
The Democratic critics accused Bush of turning govt. money for education to his own political use, namely, an ongoing effort to innoculate himself against their charges of inattention to domestic issues. The speech at Alice Deal Jr. H.S., broadcast live on radio and television, urged students to study hard, avoid drugs and trun in troublemakers.

"The Dept of Ed. should not be producing paid political advertising for the president, it should be helping us to produce smarter students," House Majority Leader Richard A. Gephardt (D-Mo.,) said "And the president should be doing more about education than saying "Lights, camera and action".

Two House committees demanded that the dept. explain the use of its funds for the speech...

Rep, Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo.), chairwoman of the Select Committee on Children, Youth and Families, said that it was outrageous for the White House to "start using precious dollars for campaigns" when "we are struggling for every silly dime we can get" for education programs.

You could not make this stuff up. At least Bush Sr. did not provide the teachers with a "curriculum" asking the kids "What does the President want you to do"? "How can you help the President?" Talk about hypocrisy! When the tables are turned and the "Chosen One" wants to speak the whole nation including schoolchildren should listen.

Leonard:

Why do you act surprised. Start with the fact that the sweepings vast majority of Democrats are baby murderers and then try and tell me you are surprised they would twist some facts or conveniently forget a few things?

Democrat = baby killer - that is all you need to know about the party of slaughter. Democrats war against innocent life makes the slaughter of the Jews look like a picnic.

Anonymous said...

12:57pm this is 12:07pm I am not Leonard but will take the misidentification as a compliment since Leonard gives well documented and common sense post about what is going on in this country.

The life and death agenda of the Democratic leftist radicals is well documented. They want to take over control of the country.

Obama was mentored and befriended by people like Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Saul Alinsky, George Soros, ACORN, and "Black Liberation Theology" for nothing less that "transforming the country" as he said the night he won the election. Abortion-on- demand is only a piece albeit a critical piece of his agenda. This nation drunk the Kool-aid because they hated Bush. They will get "change" they could have never believed in or imagined. If I am not mistaken, I heard that Obama has considered that he will not get re-elected but it will be worth it to his radical left backers to get their agenda through and to dismantle the country before Obama leaves office. They want power and control at any cost.

Anonymous said...

Yes, you are right.

I'm a newly appointed Death Panel Lead Advisor, and much of what is written on here about the Democratic Party is correct. We want women to seek abortions. We want to control Healthcare cradle to grave, and your children will pray to the President and no other God. And there's not a damn thing you can do about it!

Fuck Obama. If he wants to talk to school children, he can address his White House staff.

Culture of cruelty = hmmm, does that include denying medical attention or human contact to a baby that survives a botched abortion, or crushing the skull of an infant that is 90% outside the mother and sucking its brains out like Obama SUPPORTS.

Racism = I agree Obama and his wife show there racism almost on a daily basis. In particular Obama hates white people and Jews.

Displaced anger = you are correct, Obama definitely exhibits this. For instance he shows his disdain for the very country that has given him everything, for most assuredly he has worked for nothing.

Lack of love = Obama certainly does not understand compassion or love. You can tell in his comments about how a baby would punish his daughters. Being born of a trash relationship you can see how he would not understand smple concepts like decency and love.

Violence = yes Obama started a war against the unborn and now the elderly, his hatred of people and his demented views have created a war against the most innocent and vulnerable in our society.

11:59, it is refreshing to see myself in agreement with someone’s statements.

Isn't the phrase "typical leftist" a personal attack?

It's impossible to refute 5:57's fantasy. It's like disproving something that didn't occur.

Anonymous said...

5:57 - yes but leftists are scum. You still have done nothing to refute the actual substance of what was stated. The reason is you cannot; it is all true. That is why the response was about a leftist being a personal attack, to distract form the substance of the arguments brought forth. Same with the next comments, calling the a fantasy when they are factual is simply a way of refuting the argument without addressing it. It may work with the democratic base that is use to be lead around by the nose, but it fails to dissuade a critical thinker.

If school children are prohibited from hearing the presidents speech, then it follows that you will dump all your TV sets too. Or hasn't it occured to you that he appears on those screens from time to time with his inspiring, patriotic words of wisdom.

I guess you and your children will remain uneducated. Too bad, because we need informed citizens.

I would love to see the original speech that Obama planned to give before the uproar from parents and the original curriculum that was written. It would be interesting to compare them side-by-side to see what he really wanted to say to American schoolchildren.

"I would love to see the original speech that Obama planned to give before the uproar from parents and the original curriculum that was written. It would be interesting to compare them side-by-side to see what he really wanted to say to American schoolchildren"

Seriously? What makes you think it changed?

Conservatives were freaking out because the curriculum said "What is the president asking me to do," right? Oh no, socialist indoctrination? Um...no. The president wants them to study hard and stay in school, just like other presidents have given speeches on.

I read the whole speech and the only thing he is asking is for students to set goals, do well and stay in school. Nothing more, nothing less.
And you call that brain-washing? It's no wonder this country is going to hell...it's fucking idiots like you.

Anonymous said...

The biggest problem is you have a shiftless punk giving a speech about success to children. Am I the only one that sees what is wrong with that? Obama has never achieved anything in his life that was not given to him by taking for others. And yet he is out there lecturing on what it takes to succeed?

Here is the message to all: Dye your skin, whine about inequality, EXPLOIT the affirmative action rules and the welfare state and you to can become a success.

10:04-Your comment makes me sick. You are exactly why there is such polarization in this country. You bring down ALL Americans with such petty, immature, outdated comments such as the one you posted here.

Shame on you, if you are an American at all.

Anonymous said...

There is nothing wrong with polarization when it is good verses evil. Obama is a filthy, sick, twisted offspring of the mating of harlot and a mac daddy, the seed of a union of unadulterated lust, not a union of love. Obama's conception was mistake, his insidious existence is plaque on the decency of humanity with his baby murdering ways. His war against the elderly is a scik and twisted as it comes, and his desire to take the honest labor of men who do the right thing to give to a loathsome hoard of takers is reprehensible.

The problem is it is all true. And these people should be allowed the chance to either make something of themselves or strengthen the gene pool by exiting. You give them the chance by eliminating the welfare system and force them to wither own up to their own responsibilities, move on, or die.
