Hey, Obama, Can We See the Text of Your Speech to Every Schoolkid Before You Deliver It?
Suggested Activity: Students can "Write Letters to Themselves About What They Can Do To Help the President"

Update: Ed at Hot Air catches the suggestion in the teachers' materials that students "write letters to themselves about how they can help the President."

Ask not what your president can do for you. Ask what you can do for your president.

I continue assuming this speech is all about achievement in school and suchlike other unobjectionable stuff. And I assume the line about "helping the President" is in reference to the president's call for academic excellence.

However... I've been wrong before. And while I assume it's just referring to academic excellence, I would not be surprised at all if he packed his address up with environmental nonsense and other lefty crap.

And if he does... well. He will have crossed yet another line that all other presidents have refrained from crossing.

...


Obama's going to deliver an address to all American students on September 8th.

I imagine that every school will play the broadcast and teachers will of course treat it reverentially.

I also guess that Obama will take the opportunity to boost learning generally, always an important message, but especially important for young black males to hear.

On the other hand, Obama tends to be unable to resist his partisan and/or messianic impulses.

So, you know, is it too much to ask he provide the text of the speech to parents before he delivers it so they can make an informed choice about it?

I'm not saying I don't trust you. I'm just saying -- no, I am saying I don't trust you, now that I think about it.

Thanks to circa, who's trying to put The Omen III: The Final Conflict out of his mind and forget that Damien Thorne's biggest cause and font of support was "the children."
