Obama's terrible horrible no good very bad speech

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Obama released the prepared text of tomorrow's school address, and it's every bit the totalitarian/socialist/liberal propaganda/brainwashing/indoctrination that conservatives were warning us about last week:

...at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world - and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities. Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it takes to succeed.

And that's what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education.

That's just a taste of what to expect; I'm sure that Obama's actual presentation tomorrow will contain even more horrible liberal lies (the importance of hard work and personal responsibility) and left-wing propaganda (setting goals, perseverance, and fulfilling your potential):

You'll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment. You'll need the insights and critical thinking skills you gain in history and social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and make our nation more fair and more free. You'll need the creativity and ingenuity you develop in all your classes to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our economy.

We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills and intellect so you can help solve our most difficult problems.

This passage will really piss off the screaming heads at Faux News:

The story of America isn't about people who quit when things got tough. It's about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best.

Oh, the horror! We can't let our impressionable schoolchildren be exposed to those dangerous ideas--if they expect learning and achievement to be part of their educational experiences, who knows what might happen?
