No “help” for Obama from school kids

From the Washington Times:

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."…

Typical Obama style, make a complete overreach, then claw back just enough to look like they are sensitive to the outrage, but meanwhile staying firmly across the line they just crossed. The “help” language maybe out of the US Education Department’s materials, but is the concept out of the minds of the over zealous leftwing teachers performing these lessons? Methinks not.

Beautiful words...that ended in numerous federally funded "social programs"

"How I Can Help The President"

By Roadhouse

I can lock him a closet with only a flashlight and a copy of Atlas Shrugged, Basic Economics 101, the United States Constitution, the Declaration of Independance, and the Federalist Papers. And I wouldn't let him out until he could prove to me that he understood them.
