Obama's address



It was with great trepidation that I girded up my loins, donned my tinfoil hat, locked and loaded my musket and from behind a stump turned on President Barack Hussian Obama's address to the children of America.---

It turned out to be a rousing speech exhorting kids to work hard in school and learn what they're good at and never give up on being the best they can be. The speech hit home with who knows how many kids. Right where they live as Obama related how he grew up without a father and was raised by a single mom who had to work hard to make ends meet. He admitted to making mistakes as a youngster and learned that life was a choice and through choosing to study and excel in school, success could be achieved.

So much for all the idiotic twaddle from the few "educators" in Utah who refused to subject their students to this address by the President of the United States. Just who are the morons today? Any bets that it would have never even been brought up as a question to watch or not watch were the messenger John McCain, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin or even Dick Cheney?

I was thinking that only if I had had that type of inspiration when I was a kid I wouldn't have become the misspelling, uninformed, misguided, embarrassment of a human being I am as my favorite reader and commenter continuiews to teale mee on a weakely baises!
