That would seem to be so noble an effort that even the most partisan of GOP Dimmies would step aside and let the president of the most powerful nation on the globe have his say. But Jim Greer, chairman of the Florida Republican Party, says he's "infuriated" (it doesn't take much these days!) by the thought of Obama's attempt to propagandize the kids by going over the heads of their parents who, Greer assured us, believe otherwise. "An invasive abuse of power," Greer stomped. For all in loco parentis advocates, I have one word, duck. There's an absolutely LOCO politician in Florida trying to steal the scene.
Meantime, the hysteria in Texas could force some school districts to ban the speech in their schools. And a Dimmy Conservative talk show host, Tammy Bruce, is urging parents to make Sept 8 a Parentally Approved Skip Day. Tammy raised the bar on intellectual vacancy by telling parents that they should be "your child's tutor, not that shady lawyer from Chicago."
Well,there is an easier way to counter Obama's supposed bid to control the kids' minds, His opponents should gather up copies of "My Pet Goat" and pass them out as the students enter their classes on Sept, 8. There are still copies of it floating around on Amazon, and as we learned from Obama's predecessor, the story can be totally engrossing..
