    On September 8, Barack Obama will address every school kid in America, reason number 216 to home school. Obama has already sent out an agenda for the teachers to follow. Again, on the surface, not all that ominous, but this is Barack Obama we are talking about here, a committed communist who was mentored from the tender age of 10 years old by communist Frank Marshall Davis. This is Barack Obama who, in his books, says he sought our Marxist radicals in college as well as the Marxist professors. Those were his people.

    The president will be addressing schools on Tuesday in a speech that will give "A suggested lesson plan that calls on school kids to write letters to themselves about what they can do to help President Obama is troubling some education experts, who say it establishes the president as a "superintendent in chief" and may indoctrinate children to support him politically."

    President Obama intends to address schoolchildren across the nation next week about the importance of taking responsibility for success in their studies. But in these polarized times, the first-ever talk has quickly prompted accusations that the White House is using taxpayer money to politically indoctrinate children. Obama will travel to Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. on Sept. 8 and deliver an address that will be aired on C-Span and the White House web site, whitehouse.gov. The White House says the message is intended to stimulate a discussion about persisting and succeeding in school. In a recent letter to school...

    As an observer of the Oba-Hussein Administration strategy and tactics, which increasingly seems to misjudge the minds of the American people and bask in the narcissistic glow of accolades from their core admirers and bought supporters, it occurred to me that the choice of Tuesday September 8th to try to hog the national news scene has much to do with another MAJOR event taking place on that date at 8:00 a.m. in Santa Ana, California.

    President Barack Obama's plans for a televised back-to-school address to students next week are drawing fire from some conservatives, who say he's just trying to indoctrinate them to his political beliefs. In the Sept. 8 speech, Obama will challenge students to work hard, set goals for their education and take responsibility for their learning, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a letter to principals. The Education Department is encouraging teachers to create lesson plans around the speech, using materials provided on the department website, that urge students to learn about Obama and other presidents.

    If we had children they would be snarky and fabulous. They would also be staying home from school on September 8th because there’s no way in Hell we’d allow them to be indoctrinated by Dr. Utopia on his “National Give Me Your Children Day”. We didn’t think anything could be worse than the whole “Report Your Neighbors Program” the White House pushed, where citizens were encouraged to report their friends, family, and neighbors if any of them were overheard disagreeing with liberal Democrats and their push for socialized medicine. But, forcing school children to listen to Dr. Utopia…in a speech...

    In the midst of a rancorous health care debate and a sustained period of declining poll numbers, President Obama is seeking help from an unexpected constituency -- America's schoolchildren. And they better pay attention to his request: They may get graded on the assignment. The White House announced Wednesday that the president plans to tape a presidential address to public schoolchildren around the country to air at noon Tuesday. Along with advanced word of the speech, the U.S. Department of Education last week distributed a "menu of classroom activities" to teachers that aims to turn the speech into one of...

    Here is video of Sean Hannity tonight talking with Michelle Malkin about President Obama's plan to speak to school children next week, on Tuesday, September 8. He talked about Obama's ground troop organization - Organizing for America - and their plan to push for passage of Government Health Care on September 11. Michelle Malkin says what Obama is now doing as President is consistent with his history of radical associations in Chicago. Malkin said Obama is seeking to use the school speech next week as a prop and tool to divert attention from his difficulties with Health Care. Malkin said...

    Following widespread concern about President Obama's nationally televised address to schoolchildren, parents and schools are opting to forgo the Sept. 8 speech. School officials have been asked to take a break from normal educational activities to allow students to view the speech from the president and participate in recommended brainstorming exercises following the broadcast. Obama will give the speech at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. The speech is scheduled to broadcast live at 12 p.m. EST on C-SPAN and at whitehouse.gov. But parents across the nation are complaining about the speech taking up valuable classroom instruction time and possibly...

    Once again, one of the masters of the universe trotted out on MSNBC has discovered the cure to one of society's ills - more Obama. Daily Voice editor and CNBC contributor Keith Boykin waved off the reservations of some parents about President Barack Obama addressing their children in the classroom. Boykin appeared on MSNBC on Sept. 3 in a segment about the classroom controversy and added his insightful commentary on the matter. "So much of the debate about President Obama has been politicized in an effort by some to delegitimize his presidency," Boykin said. "This is clearly much ado about...

    A groundswell of parent opposition to President Barack Obama's speech next week to students on the importance of education has forced many North Texas school districts to question whether to air it live in classrooms. Obama announced the speech weeks ago, but opposition and concerns spread rapidly Wednesday morning through conservative social networking Web sites and radio talk shows. By midday, local school districts say, they were inundated with hundreds of phone calls from parents urging them to not show Obama's speech at school. Some parents threatened to keep their children home from school if the video was aired. "We...

    'ABC" stands for All Barack's Children. On Sept. 8, young students across the country will be watch ing TV. Yes, they'll be parked in front of boob tubes and computer screens watching President Obama's address on education. Instead of reviewing multiplication tables or diagramming sentences, America's kids will be lectured about the importance of learning. Then the schoolchildren, from pre-K through 12th grade, will be exhorted to Do Something -- other than sit in their seats and receive academic instruction, that is. Education Secretary Arne Duncan dispatched letters to principals nationwide, boasting, "This is the first time an American president...

    President Obama's plan to inspire the nation's schoolchildren with a video address next week erupted into controversy Wednesday, forcing the White House to pull out its eraser and rewrite a government recommendation that teachers nationwide assign students a paper on how to "help the president," the Washington Times reported. Presidential aides acknowledged the White House helped the U.S. Education Department craft the proposal, which immediately was met by fierce criticism from Republicans and conservative organizations who accused Obama of trying to politicize the education system. White House aides said the language was an honest misunderstanding in what was supposed to...

    The Obama administration is setting a dangerous new precedent in American politics next week when the President carries out his plans to target the school aged children of this nation in a Presidential address. As parents, we have an obligation to first and foremost protect our children, and part of the protection is to prevent them from the challenges and issues that plague adults for as long as possible. I cannot deny that I am more than interested to see first-hand what the President's speech will encompass on September 8th, but at the same time I will make sure that...

The speech, which is set for 11AM CDT on Tuesday, has become controversial, because many conservative groups have said they are afraid the president will use the speech to try to convince children to support his political policies, and convince their parents to do the same.
