Power Line – Obama’s back-to-school speech — no political content but plenty of self-references

September 8, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

If anyone really believes that this was the original speech he wanted to give, they are completely naive.  If this whole thing had not blown up in his face, I am sure he would be calling on them to obey and serve him, have everyone fill out papers on how they could serve him, and make them watch videos (which some schools did) that told them to pledge to help Obama.

The White House has released the prepared text of President Obama’s "back to school" speech. The speech exhorts students to study hard and aim to achieve big things. It is devoid of any controversial content. As such, it is unobjectionable.

One might have hoped for less discussion of Obama himself, particularly the things he’s tried to accomplish in the area of education. But that hope would have been unrealistic with this president.
