TheRick - I agree I actually think it is an honor for a child to hear from any president. I didn't like the "suggested activities" they had before they either changed them or clarified them but hearing from the president is a good thing. You will get people out there that think Obama can do nothing right just like people thought the same thing about Bush 2. I am very much opposed to the view Obama has for this country but to me that(his policies) has nothing to do with speaking to kids and trying to motivate them to try hard in school. People need to chill out and relax sometimes...politicians from both parties can do good things outside of pushing their agenda.
Sorry all over the place today Damn 3 day weekends
