Obama’s Message to Schoolchildren

Next week, on September 8th, President Barack Hussein Obama will be giving a message to students across the nation.  The Administration has already had to retract and change part of the message over controversy relating to political advertising.

That, and because numerous angry parents raised have their voices against forcing their children to listen to Barack Hussein Obama.

From the Washington Times:

President Obama’s plan to inspire the nation’s schoolchildren with a video address next week erupted into controversy Wednesday, forcing the White House to pull out its eraser and rewrite a government recommendation that teachers nationwide assign students a paper on how to “help the president.”

The post-message assignment has now been changed to writing a paper about students’ educational goals.

This has displeased members in the media.  In fact, one CNBC contributor stated that pulling Obama’s video presentation from schools is a reason why kids are so dumb:

Daily Voice editor and CNBC contributor Keith Boykin waved off the reservations of some parents about President Barack Obama addressing their children in the classroom.

“So much of the debate about President Obama has been politicized in an effort by some to delegitimize his presidency,” Boykin said.  “That’s why our kids are so dumb today, because they don’t want to have basic common sense in the classroom.” (Video at the end of the post)

I would argue that pulling kids out of their normal learning curriculum would harm their education.

If you’re taking a Labor Day mini-vacation, maybe extend it one more day and keep your kids out of school on Tuesday, September 8th 🙂
