I am a father of two. My boy is one and my little girl is six and in first grade. I am personally not pleased with the prospect of that man, my president, speaking to her. I don't think that it is anywhere near his responsiblity to appeal to her for ANYTHING. No politician needs to speak to my six year old. If they have something to say to my kids, they can tell me and I will decide what I want to pass to them.

My girl is smart. Here's a little story... During the election her school did a little mock vote for the kids. You know, to teach them about voting and civic duty and stuff. I wasn't pleased with this either. She came home and told me that she voted for Obama. I asked her why. She said because he had a cool name. I chuckled at that of course. So... months later our Congress is talking about cap and trade and the carbon tax and all the BS. I go home and begin to tell my wife about what Obama is up to now. My wife naturally begins to say stuff like, "How are we going to pay our bill if that goes through?" The same things that we all said. My wife and I didn't know it but our little girl was standing at the door listening. All of a sudden we hear her say, "You guys are right. Obama is stupid. I never should have voted for him."

Anyway... back to the school thing. I for one know what I will be doing that day. If her teacher is going to participate I will not be sending her to school that day. Plain and simple.

Anyone else feeling this way?

It's your right as a parent if you wish to keep her away that day and of course it also up to you if you want to let her personally see and hear the president of the United States. Not because of who he is but because seeing a president in person may be a rare event for her.

My nephew and niece met Bush when they were younger but they voted Dem when they came of age.

They try the liberal indoctrination in universities all the time.
Sometimes the students record the teachers and out them on
the Sean Hannity Show. The college students are old enough
to see it and ignore it.
Now Obama wants to go after 5 year olds because they are
young and impressionable.

The worksheets are the evidence of the sinister attempt.
They crossed the line and they know it.
They are backing away as fast as they can.
Are they sorry they did it or are they sorry they got caught?

I totally agree. I made a thread earlier about this as well.
www.abovetopsecret.com...

You will find lots of opinions on there about this very same thing.

Jeeze. I have no idea what Obama will actually say in this broadcast. But I guarantee you, me, as a grandpa, will have more influence on my grandchildren than Obama will in a, what, one hour or less broadcast? Come on folks, if Obama even comes close to saying what JFK said many years ago, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country." Then I might be rather happy for this message. Does that make me a socialist? Hell, no. I read often statements by conservatives who proclaim that JFK was a conservative and he would roll over in his grave if he knew what his democrat party has become. Maybe he would, but surely not for suggesting that citizens of a country owe something to their country, and to the people who have fought and died for that same country in the past.

Apparantly, the parents in the U.S. are not successfully instilling in their children the idea that education is important, and that people need to have knowledge to not only succeed, but to be able to make intelligent decisions.

Just last night, my 2nd grader grandson threw a big hissy fit, stomping about and yelling, because he had to read a bit of schoolwork. "Reading is stupid!" he said. lol.

Ah, hell. I am off on a rant. Let me just say, if you are so afraid that you have such little control and influence on your children, that you are scared to let the POTUS speak to your child about the value of education, and whatever else he might "try to cram into your childrens' minds", then you have already lost the battle of raising your kids to be reasoning individuals.

Oh, I am so sorry that when I was a kid that JFK pushed physical fitness standards into the publc school system.
Apparantly, parents back in the early 60's were failing, or at least the schools were failing.

Now is what Obama going to say to our children propaganda, and suddenly turn our children into little marxists?

Well, if so, then I suppose Obama is the antichrist and you are powerless to oppose him.

I guess also that it is a trust issue. I don't trust Obama. If I knew that he was going to go on the web and talk about the importance of getting and education, I wouldn't have a problem. But I have a serious trust issue with him. Comparing what JFK, whom I consider to be our last "real" president, said to what Obama is going to say... well I don't know what he will say. And that is the problem. I don't know what he is going to say. So to avoid the chance of him telling my little girl some kind of nonsense, I will just keep her home.

You're being a smart ass aren't you? Obama will be in the oval office speaking off a teleprompter.

Stop being a smart ass. Trust me, it doesn't pay.

I think it is inappropriate for him to even consider this. not the words not the meaning behind them.... just the idea of speaking to another persons child without their consent and support is not ok.

K-6?? Most of These children do not care about, this tells me that they may have an agenda behind the speech. My daughter will not be present on the 8th. and I will be sure to watch it on prime time.

Right on, I wouldn't trust Obama or any of his lackeys alone with my kid, why would I trust his speaking to my kid in school? It's absolutely ridiculous that we're supposed to accept this. Obama had his way pushing the census through school kids, now he's gonna talk to kids and push more of his agenda on schoolkids, so they can what? Report their parents if they are speaking against him? Tell their parents that healthcare is good? Go on about global warming like algore that the kids shouldn't trust their parents opinions on the environment cause it's the same thing as racism?
Kids that age don't have a BS filter where they can understand when someone is lying to them, all they know is it's a person in authority speaking to them and like good little robots they soak it up. They haven't matured enough to understand the concepts being discussed, like rights vs privileges, the role of the constitution in a republic or many other things. I'm just as pissed off about this as the OP, and my kid will have a parental approved vacation day. The bastard realizes he can't buffalo enough adults to get his crazy socialist plan through so he's gonna perform an end run by going to the kids and warping their brains so they can either, spy on their parents, report on their parents, or guilt trip their parents. That SOB can go stick it where the sun don't shine, he's not getting unfiltered access to my kids head.

Anyway you look at it, Obama is up to no good. These people have all the patience in the world because if the current guy can't get it done, they'll just wait for the next generation to get it done. Indoctrinate at a young age so that the kids whos parents don't teach them at home, which I am NOT one of them, won't know any better. That way they grow up never knowing what has happened to them.

"Let me conclude by one final statement. Thank you all for coming. Before we leave, I want to make a special request to the children of America. I ask you to join in a special effort to help the children of Afghanistan. Their country has been through a great deal of war and suffering. Many children there are starving and are severely malnourished. One in three Afghan children is an orphan. Almost half suffer chronic malnutrition. And we can, and must, help them.

We've created a special relief effort that will be supervised by the Red Cross. We are asking every child in America to earn or give a dollar that will be used to provide food and medical help for the children of Afghanistan. You can send your dollar in an envelope, marked "America's Fund for Afghan Children," right here to the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

This is an opportunity to help others, while teaching our own children a valuable lesson about service and character. I hope school classes or Boys and Girl Scout troops, other youth organizations will participate in any way to raise the money to send to the children. Wash your car. Do a yard for a neighbor. And I hope the adults will help them, as well.

Ultimately, one of the best weapons, one of the truest weapons that we have against terrorism is to show the world the true strength of character and kindness of the American people. Americans are united in this fight against terrorism. We're also united in our concern for the innocent people of Afghanistan. Winter is coming, and by acting today we can help the children survive.

Thank you for your questions. May God bless America."
