Inglish is are langwudge. Lurn it!

The intellectual heavy-weights of the GOP came out against Obama's speech today, even those who couldn't read it without moving their lips. And it's a good thing, too. Here's the text of the speech just dripping with scary socialism that will corrupt little Johnny Birch.

Here are some highlights of Obama's speech:

"I've talked about teachers' responsibility for inspiring students and pushing you to learn."

"I've talked about your parents' responsibility for making sure you stay on track, and you get your homework done, and don't spend every waking hour in front of the TV or with the Xbox."

"I've talked a lot about your government's responsibility for setting high standards, and supporting teachers and principals, and turning around schools that aren't working, where students aren't getting the opportunities that they deserve."

"But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, the best schools in the world -- and none of it will make a difference, none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities, unless you show up to those schools, unless you pay attention to those teachers, unless you listen to your parents and grandparents and other adults and put in the hard work it takes to succeed. That's what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education."

God, what a bastard.

His Socialism skills are so strong that it's even softened the skulls of Laura Bush, Newt Gingrich and Bill Frist, all who said the speech was swell. Gingrich then lumbered off to plant a pod under Tom Coburn's desk.

First we had the teabaggers with a mouthful of historical ignorance. Then the town-hollers who wanted the government out of Medicare. Now we have people who are actually protesting the President of the United States talking about responsibility to the nation's students.
Really? That's what you've got?

After this summer, how can anyone take the Republicans seriously?

We got a robocall from Julia's principal yesterday afternoon about how they didn't broadcast the speech, but we could see the text on the school website. Honestly, I think kids hear that crap enough from their parents and it would make a much bigger impact coming from the president. But I guess the school administration felt they'd rather put their tail between their legs rather than actually show a speech that could make a difference.

Oh, and P.S. I live in Connecticut. One of those "liberal" states. Yeah, right.

An exceptionally excellent post, David.

Just when I suspect the anti-Obama stuff has bottomed out, some illiterate yahoo finds a new shovel. There's plenty about the President to criticize, but it would be nice if the less inbred got a chance at the microphone.
