JFK all over again?
President Obama addressed the Nation's school children on Tuesday night. At least he attempted to.
Many parents, obviously under the spell of GOP conservatives, championed by popular talk show hosts, chose to keep their children home for the day. Spurred on by the likes of Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck, they were advised Obama was only trying to indoctrinate kid's with his political agenda. They didn't want their precious kids listening to Socialistic/ Marxist ideals that are clearly anti-American and clearly unpatriotic.
Let's see: "stay in school," do your homework," "engage with your teachers," "try repeadly to succeed if you fail," and the divisive mantra: "Doing well in school may encourage you to help the country in the future".
Seems to me I heard a similar statement made by President John F. Kennedy in 1962: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
Even then, another Democratic strategy to turn America into China and Russia?
