Will President Obama manage to brainwashed our children in less than 20 minutes on the 8th?

The president is scheduled to speak for 15 – 20 minutes.

Help get America’s students engaged! On Tuesday, September 8 — the first day of school for many students — the President will talk directly to students across the country on the importance of taking responsibility for their education, challenging them to set goals and do everything they can to succeed. We want to make sure that as many schools and classrooms nationwide can participate in this special opportunity, so we are making the President’s address and all the information that comes with it available as widely as possible. Whether you are a teacher, a school board member, or a member of the media, find information below to help you watch and be engaged with the President in welcoming our students back to school.

  • Actually, brainwashing begins small and goes on for YEARS of indoctrination. You think Hitler brainwashed all those Germans in 20 minutes? No, it went on for years, with little bits and pieces at a time.

  • Absolutely. Don't you know when you get your kids vaccinated they implant a tiny microchip. During Obama's speech they will brodcast a special signal that will activate the microchip and turn all the children watching into commie nazis. No really. I'm serious... really. *shifty eyes*

  • My kids school is allowing parents who don't want their child to see it to sign a request form and they will be provided with a different activity.

  • Girl quit trippin!!!!!! You really sound so ridiculous! Since when did America EVER have a President that actually gave a damn about the ppl? Now we have a good man in the office that is doing his best to take care of all our issues. He is addressing the kids of our future to invest in their education and encouraging them to be all that they can be and you want to complain about that?!!!! HOW DARE YOU? Get a clue - we woke up from the "American Dream" 8 yrs ago! If this is what it takes to educate our kids about the real world in America then you need to get with the program!

  • I have SEEN Obama give speech after speech after speech. He and his team (AND other progressives in Washington) repeatedly slide things in sideways. For example, if you're objecting to the gov't takeover in the health care bill, then you don't want poor people to have access to health care.

    Plus, that Hollywood ad is synchronized to bolster Obama's speech.

    Sorry, but school is for learning truthful things like Math, Grammar, History, Science. So whatever children are exposed to in the classroom is absorbed by them and they accept it as truth.

    That's why political speech is BANNED from the classroom.

    DISCUSSIONS ABOUT political ideas is an acceptable part of OLDER kids' civics classes. But teachers are not allowed to influence students with their political views - they aren't even allowed to wear political pins or put up classroom posters.

    I have NO problem with Obama's speech being watched AT HOME, WITH parents.
