Actual quote from Barack Obama to the children of America: “I expect great things from you.”
See? He is demanding things of our children. The President of the United States just told my children that they must take responsibility for their own education. Indoctrination complete. I am going to take my children to get fitted for their foil hats now. It’s our only hope.
Honestly, Joe Watkins on MSNBC just said that sure, the speech was good and had a good message and all that, but I mean, what is this going to lead to? I mean, now, the President is going to use this as a platform to schedule MORE speeches to today’s kindergartener, where he will talk about gay marriage and health care and the stimulus and the death panels. Today it’s stay in school, tomorrow it’s support the public option! He’s unstoppable now! He called it a “slippery slope,” which frankly, is a term far more stupid and far more overused than “it is what it is” and “my bad” combined.
Joe added that the president was a gifted and charismatic speaker who speaks with authority and persuasion. So…… only presidents who are BAD speakers should speak to children. Because your children should never be impressed or persuaded… by the President.
In Joe’s defense, how exactly are the angry anti-school-speechers of the nation going to defend their stance after a speech that expressed the necessity of today’s youth to advance their education and take control of their futures.
But no — we’ll just stick to losing our diddy minds. Again.
