My daughter's school won't see it, the school doesn't have the A/V resources to handle a broadcast to the entire school.

What should I be scared of next?

Oh, and by the way, even if she were to see it, I wouldn't mind. I'm not about to teach my child to fear the President of the United States.

HOUSTON — President Obama’s plan to deliver a speech to public school students on Tuesday has set off a revolt among conservative parents, who have accused the president of trying to indoctrinate their children with socialist ideas and are asking school officials to excuse the children from listening.

The uproar over the speech, in which Mr. Obama intends to urge students to work hard and stay in school, has been particularly acute in Texas, where several major school districts, under pressure from parents, have laid plans to let children opt out of lending the president an ear.

Some parents said they were concerned because the speech had not been screened for political content. Nor, they said, had it been reviewed by the State Board of Education and local school boards, which, under state law, must approve the curriculum.

“The thing that concerned me most about it was it seemed like a direct channel from the president of the United States into the classroom, to my child,” said Brett Curtiss, an engineer from Pearland, Tex., who said he would keep his three children home.

“I don’t want our schools turned over to some socialist movement.”

The White House has said the speech will emphasize the importance of education and hard work in school, both to the individual and to the nation. The message is not partisan, nor compulsory, officials said.

“This isn’t a policy speech,” said Sandra Abrevaya, a spokeswoman for the Department of Education. “It’s designed to encourage kids to stay in school. The choice on whether to show the speech to students is entirely in the hands of each school. This is absolutely voluntary.”

Mr. Obama’s speech was announced weeks ago, but the furor among conservatives reached a fever pitch Wednesday morning as right-wing Web sites and talk show hosts began inveighing against it.

Mark Steyn, a Canadian author and political commentator accused Mr. Obama of trying to create a cult of personality, comparing him to Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong-il, the North Korean leader.

In Florida, Jim Greer, said he “was appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama’s socialist ideology.”

And Chris Stigall, a Kansas City talk show host, said, “I wouldn’t let my next-door neighbor talk to my kid alone; I’m sure as hell not letting Barack Obama talk to him alone.”

Previous presidents have visited public schools to speak directly to students, although few of those events have been broadcast live. Mr. Obama’s address at noon, Eastern time, at a high school in Virginia, will be streamed live on the White House Web site.

The first President George Bush, a Republican, made a similar nationally broadcast speech from a Washington high school in 1991, urging students to study hard, avoid drugs and to ignore peers “who think it’s not cool to be smart.” Democrats in Congress accused him of using taxpayer money — $27,000 to produce the broadcast — for “paid political advertising.”

This week, school officials were hearing from parents about the issue not only in Texas, but in other parts of the country as well — California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, South Carolina and Utah.

Herb Garrett, executive director of the Georgia School Superintendents Association, said many of his members felt that the controversy had put them in an awkward situation, vulnerable to attacks from conservative talk-show hosts if they open up instructional time for Mr. Obama’s speech, and open to accusations that they have disrespected the president if they do not.

"I'm going to be making a big speech to young people all across the country about the importance of education; about the importance of staying in school; how we want to improve our education system and why it’s so important for the country. So I hope everybody tunes in."


Yea, this sounds real sinister to me....

Some people will dig for anything they can twist into ridiculous hate propaganda

As I've said before.....I don't hear much complaint about Pres. George H.W. Bush addressing the school children or about George Bush addressing the school children so it can't be that the President is speaking to them......it's that it's a black president who might want to be 'uppity' enough to address their little white kids. Give me a break....what a bunch of wingnuts....keep your kid home from school? BOO!!!

So you are ok with the propoganda being sent to teachers and faculty? The assignment and the questions he wants the kids to answer? This is more than just a simple speech. F#ck Obama and his socialist propoganda. And just not to leave anyone out, f@ck Bush and his fascist propoganda as well. Please go back to your daily glass of kool-aid as your great country is destroyed from the inside out.

Whaaaaaa! Bush did it so Obama can do it ten times worse, it's only fair! Whaaaaa!

I don't think I'm the one running around like Chicken Little thinking everything this president does or says is designed to take away my guns or my freedom. If the guy said 'good morning' there are some people who would find an ulterior motive in the statement. If you want to run and hide, go for it. I don't plan on joining you in the fallout shelter of paranoia.

You just flat out don't like a black president running 'your' country. You might as well admit it....there's absolutely no other reason for your fear and hatered. I've read everything you've read and I have yet to see anything that makes me feel less secure than I felt before he was elected. Racism is the only answer that puts behaviour such as what's being exhibited into context.

Classic. Play the race card when all else fails. Brilliant. I don't have a problem with my half white President.

I have a problem with socialism, fascism, and communism. I have a problem with a government that wants to fundamentally change our country away from a democracy to something we won't be able to recognize. I have a problem with a government that is destroying our currency and our way of life. You seem to be just fine with it. I say hell no! Go ahead and be complicit to the destruction of our union, I will have nothing to do with it. You are obviously too far gone to see what they are doing. Keep blaming it on Bush, that one is a real winner on the left. Or blame Rush, Hannity, or Beck. They play you so easily, it makes me laugh. Good luck with your socialism/fascism/communism. Let me know how that works out for you!

How sad, you gotta really hate the President to keep your kids home from school that day.


Actually, he will remember the cool day he got to spend with his dad. Not being brainwashed into socialism.

One thing is for sure. One of us is going to right about Obama, and one of us is going to be wrong. I hope you are going to be big enough to admit it when that day comes. If Obama proves me wrong, then so be it. So far he has showed me nothing.

I don't hate my half white President. I do not like what he is doing to my country, that is for sure.

Okay, this is crazy. The video is edited to make it look like 1984. You have no clue if those scenes are staged for the video or what the context is. The first shot of the black kids looks like some sort of juvenile offender program to me, and for kids like that to be inspired to anything that isn't criminal is a good thing. Of course they put it first withj message being clear: "The black youth of America are uniting undr Obama and coming for your wives and daughters!" Please. Where is anyone changing the pledge to an allegiance to Obama instead of the U.S.? A speech about staying in school and striving to attain goals, to better yourself and contribute to your community is a bad thing? Are those somehow values foreign to you that you do not want your children emulating? "You're staying home today son. We don't want any part of that staying in school and making our communites better places to live crap!"

BOO!

Due to overwhelming demand from parents, the school system in our town has chosen not to broadcast this. The majority of our town voters also supported Obama in the presidential election. Our school system also chose Jen Psaki, Obama's deputy press secretary, to be the commencement speaker at last June's graduation ceremony. I think this speaks volumes.

I'm just not sure what it says that parents are requesting that a speech, similar to one given by the first president Bush, would not be shown when they haven't even seen it first.

You know Jerry, what scares me more than anything else is that you and people who share your ignorant, narrow, and provincial mindset remind of the kids in my school that were LAUGHING the day that JFK was shot because that "Commie Pinko finally got what was coming to him." I did not grow in an educationally or economically challenged area - far from it, this was the North Shore of Chicago which coincidentally is one of the most archly conservative areas in the US. Don Rumsfeld was our Congressional Representative and my Dad was a Republican Precinct Captain.

These kids were 4th or 5th graders (I was in 1st Grade in '63) and were old enough to understand that the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES had just had his head blown off - but they had been indoctrinated with so much hatred for Democrats and in particular, John F. Kennedy, that it was entirely acceptable to celebrate the violent assassination of the leader of our country. After all, his biggest crime was that he got elected. Oh, and I'm sure the fact that he was Catholic didn't help.

The reason you remind me of these pathetically sick kids is that you present your points in almost hysterical barrage, every day, trying to rabble rouse people into taking some kind of action that you don't have the guts to do yourself. You hated Obama before he even articulated what his platform was going to be last year. You just desperately NEED someone to HATE, perhaps because of the pathetic status of your own life. People like you are like a guy driving 100 MPH towards a brick wall. You know what the outcome is going to be but you floor it anyway.

If you truly LOVED this country you wouldn't try spread so much utter hatred every single day. But it's obvious that you hate the United States of America, because your only purpose in life seems to be to unearth things to feed your hate. I think this is what gets you out of bed every day.

I have NEVER read ONE positive post by you about anything. Not one.

How can one person have so much venom and vitriol inside of them?

If Obama ever gets taken out, God Forbid, I predict that it will be the happiest day of your life. You are one seriously demented dude. Get some help - if only for the sake of your wife. That is, if you really have one. If you do, she must deaf, dumb and blind.
