Obamadoctrinatin'

I've been wondering how the left would respond if a Republican tried to speak to school children from the White House. Now we know. Patti talks about a speech Bush I gave to school kids in 1991 and the media's reaction: Not A Wonk

sheesh. and bush didn't even allude that the kiddies should follow in lock-step with him. INVESTIGATE!

You're welcome Patti. That Bush wasn't even trying to include policies just tells you how hypocritical the left is being about this. Bush talking was enough to be an outrage. But Obama asking kids to write letters explaining how they would help him, and having teachers collect the letters and keep track of the progress was just part of being President?

Remember the old saying when it comes to selective indignation: "It all depends on whose ox is being gored."

Patti: I thought that was a great summary. I tried to comment on your site, but for some reason it wouldn't let me. Don't know if that's at your end or mine, but anyway, well done!

Thanks for posting that! It doesn't make me smile, though, it just makes me angry. Grrrrr. >:/

Well now, Obama was only 8 years old when Ayers did his bombings, therefore he shouldn't be held accountable for being friends with him now. And Gibbs was only 7 when Animal House came out, so he obviously wouldn't know a food fight if Blutarsky himself imitated a zit right in front of him.

Stoopid is as stoopid conducts White House briefings.

I've already heard enough "well Bush did it." to last a lifetime on this topic.

Armchair General: I'll see you, and raise you. I'm getting even sicker of hearing Obama "not doing it." He reminds me of my younger daughter when she was about ten. After the divorce, I got an apartment in Encino, near my L.A. office. It had one major flaw--for some reason known only to God, they had put in white wall-to-wall carpeting. A recipe for disaster with kids. One day her brother and sister were busy for the weekend, so she came over to visit me alone. I was sitting in dining room, and out of the corner of my eye I saw a Coke going up in the air in the living room. Sure enough, nice sticky brown Coca-Cola on a white carpet. There were only two of us there (unless there was a ghost I was unaware of). And what are the first words out of my daughter's mouth? You guessed it, "I didn't do it." Van Jones? "I didn't do it." Multi-millions of unemployed? "I didn't do it." Complete takeover of major American corporations and banks: "I didn't do it." Watching the stock market continue its shakiness? "I didn't do it." Investigating CIA interrogators to root out possible politically-incorrect actions overseas? "I didn't do it." I see a pattern here. "Yes, we can" has become "No, I didn't."
