    Courtesy of a link provided by bodecea in another thread,* here's the "SPEECH"

    Prepared Remarks of President Barack Obama “Back to School Event”


    I have read it (speedily, though) and found nothing offensive in it really at all.

    Comments?

    I thought I would save the Republicans time and write their criticism for them. Hope I captured their "spirit". Don't thank me. It wasn't difficult. You guys are pretty obvious. But I will say, "Your Welcome".

    Oh man,
    it's frightening, it's scary, it's freaky weird. All the secret messages and subliminal messages.

    ---How's everyone doing today?

    Knowing he can't see or hear us, he is plainly delusional.

    ----and my mother didn't have the money to send me where all the American kids went to school. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday — at 4:30 in the morning.

    See, she started her indoctrination early in the morning. Obviously a Police State.

    -------and pushing you to learn.

    See, he admits it. He is pushing the children. Operation Push? I knew it. Push a Republican.

    -----and turning around schools that aren't working where students aren't getting the opportunities they deserve.

    Obviously Affirmative Action.

    -------Every single one of you has something to offer

    He's trying to get them to rat on their parents. I knew it!

    ------And no matter what you want to do with your life — I guarantee that you'll need an education to do it.

    Indoctrination!!!! Maybe "re" education?

    ----You want to be a doctor, or a teacher, or a police officer?

    For his "police state" no doubt.

    ----You'll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS,

    Look, he's trying to teach gay sex to children!! Disgusting.

    -----if you quit on school — you're not just quitting on yourself, you're quitting on your country.

    Now he's calling us unpatriotic.

    -------Maybe you'll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in your community.

    SOCIALISM! COMMUNISM!! I KNEW IT!!!!

    -------Maybe you'll decide to stand up for kids who are being teased or bullied because of who they are or how they look

    Now he's trying to turn our children gay.

    -----Whatever you resolve to do, I want you to commit to it. I want you to really work at it.

    You mean work in your labor camps.

    ----- that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star, when chances are, you're not going to be any of those things.

    That's right. Ruin their dreams.

    ------JK Rowling's first Harry Potter book was rejected twelve times before it was finally published.

    Now he's trying to push magic over the "word of God".

    -----Asking for help isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign of strength.

    Now he's forcing our children to go on welfare.

    ----- Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.

    Obviously talking about the Muslim God.

    This is the worse most sickening speech in American history. Do you Democrats see what you've elected as president.

    Shame

    Shame

    Shame.

    U = Fail.

    I have seen no conservatives or Republicans make any argument even remotely along those lines.

    All I have seen more or less reflect my opinion which is that this speech, as prepared and laid out in the form I quoted, is really not bad at all.

    That is a very nice speech indeed. :clap2: President Obama

    Of course, me being an agnostic that I am, I'd prefer it to be without any reference to any god ... but oh well, I can dream on ...

    It is funny watching these Obama hating lunatics trying to explain to us why such an innocuous speech is a terrible thing for schoolchildren to hear, isn't it?

    These fucking people are idiots.

    They are an embarrrassment to conservatives who can think for themselves.

    Yes. Right. Were it otherwise, you would be able to point us to the post of a few conservatives who, having read the proposed speech, still maintain that it is anything more than innocuous.

    But you can't.

    And you can't because, by and large, folks who have read that proposed speech -- including conservatives who were prepared to see the worst in it -- DO recognize that it said nothing offensive.

    Enjoy the truth everyone. This is a good speech overall, i could nitpick a few things out of it that I think should have been said different but I dont have any complaints big enough to make a stink over. Enjoy.

    I wonder why Obama did not explain kicking out poor kids from the private school his own children have the privilege of attending?

    Hmmm....
