President Obama's Back to School Speech Furor

Uproar over President Obama's Back to School Remarks

    OK... I've noticed plenty of bloggers talking about all the uproar over President Barack Obama's speech to the nation's schoolchildren. It's scheduled for Tuesday... so I'd thought I'd chime in. 

   But some Republicans and conservative talk show hosts, last week, began attacking arrangements for the speech. That led to efforts by parents across the country to keep school districts from airing the speech. Some claiming the President would use the opportunity to push his healthcare agenda. I've even seen reports where some claimed the President would be "brainwashing our children." I've heard arguments from both sides as to why they would or would not support airing the speech to our school children.

   The White House today released the remarks the President will be making for this "Back to School Event."  I've read over it and I find nothing to indicate a "brainwashing" or a push for Mr. Obama's Health Care Reform agenda. In my humble opinion the uproar was really much to do about nothing. What do you think?

You can check out the remarks at www.whitehouse.gov.
