  • yes and no
    He's the first to speak to so many kids in so many different age groups at one time. The others either tailored it to a certain number of grades or only beamed it to a limited number of schools

  • It's the curriculum he is pushing that I have a problem with, not the speech. The speech is nonsense, just PR. The curriculum is indoctrination. It is the school's job to teach, not Obama's.
