Amazing how the Drive-Bys take Obama at his word when they said the speech wasn't changed, Rove disagrees...

LOL! Love Rove!
Altered or not, what is the problem? It would be dumb for anyone giving a speech, to not be able to change or edit it, right up to the time it is given.
I know so....
No doubt about it...
Damn straight it was altered!
Is “Supreme Leader” of greater stature than “Dear Leader”?
In this case, it was altered after the uproar of parents across America. The original intent was to have the children back this President on his agenda. He got caught and changed the speech. That is different then changing the speech as it evolves. The speech was originally going to be an hour with all sorts of lesson plans aimed at drumming up support for ZERO from the youth of America.
Would bet the lesson plans and original speech were written by Bill Ayers, not someone you would want to write a speech for America’s school children to hear.
You completely miss the point. The original speech was not doubt a political propaganda piece indoctrinating the children on how to best serve Obama and to hate capitalism and encouraged the children to think of ways to help Obama. You can read the transcript of the speech given to students in Utah.
Obamah already has a snitch hotline to report bad parents.
How many edits did Lincoln do on the Gettysburg address?
At least 3 from the history channel.
Can’t forget his wife eschewing working for “corporate America” while she sat on very profitable hospital boards, etc.
It’s too bad the Education department released the lesson plans last week. I would have like to have heard the original speech—and bashed it, of course.
Altered or not, conservatives are the ones who will end up with shoeprints on their d**ks over this one. And it's our own fault ... again ... as usual.
Apolitical folks (i.e., the vast majority of Americans) will judge the controversy by the speech actually given.
If it's unobjectionable -- and it will be -- all that noise will simply have provided Obama's team with ammunition to characterize conservatives as hysterical; and he'll use that perception to marginalize us on other issues: ones that actually matter.
The proper approach would have been to raise a stink after Obama's speech. He can't un-say what he's already said; but he can certainly not say things when he's been given advance warning.
Where is this coming from? Is HotAirPundit adding it? If you go to YouTube and play the video you don't see it.
Stop the quislingism.
Well..... yes. But the key word there is "was," as in "might have been."
It's not the speech or approach he'll actually use, though ... and thus I suspect that uproar will probably hurt us more than it helped.
If we were truly diabolical (and we should probably learn to become so), we would have waited until after the speech actually happened.
I didn’t get a chance to read the first draft, did you? Either way, I would think that changing it’s content, for whatever reason, would be the same as changing it as it evolved.
Hm. Independent thought isn't your strong suit, is it?
