For Heaven's sake, a President can make a speech at a school.

But was Pres. Bush's address intended to be piped into all classrooms? NO!!

And was Bush's speech accompanied by pro-Bush curriculum? No.

Were instructors directed to lead the discussion by asking values-clarification questions like "what exactly does 'civic duty' and 'responsibility' mean to you?" "What do you think your President is asking of you?" "How do you think you can help President Obama?" No

Did Bush ask the kids to pick out inspirational phrases from his speech and plaster them on the walls? No.

This is entirely different, and entirely dictatorial. Bush's speech was "don't fry your brain on drugs."
