It's almost funny that people want to find a reason to hate obama so much that they're even complaining when he tries to help kids! In every nation
around the world through out modern history without fail every single leader has tried to get the kids learning, it's not just the elected ones
either - Prince Charles for example runs the 'Princes Trust' where he actively engages with the youth helping them find themselves and excel in life
(or whatever those geeks do with their backpacks) , Bush as someone pointed out himself was reading to school kids on the day of 911, Tony Blair and
now Gordon Brown have been frequently interviewed on 'NewsRound' the childrens bbc news program plus he gave many 'asperational' statements to the
youth in his speechs - I could go on, this is common in countries as far afield as Isreal, Jamaica and Austrailia... But no, obama does it and chaos
I'm a working class white guy, i can tell you for a fact that Racism is still very a popular mindset and it hides just slightly under the surface of
many, many people - these silly old ideas and fears are hard to shake, sure the talkshow hosts and barhouse loudmouths know it's 'wrong' to dislike
someone because of the color of their skin but honestly an awful lot of people find it hard to change their ways, if they even want to. Of course a
large part of it is the fact he's a socialist, no where near enough of a socialist in my opinion but still by american standards he's pretty
socialist. Some deep rooted fear of the Red menace, Black Tide and The fall of christendom (yes, everyone with half a brain can tell that Obama
isn't #really# a Christian - he's far too smart to be anything other than an Athiest) tugs on an awful lot of subliminal thought processes, people
are desperate to rationalize their fear and hatred so pick at any little thing he does.
It's a shame that people can't rationally focus their mental powers on dealing with the actual issues, the meat and potatos of WHAT he said - maybe
some of what he said was wrong, then find out what and why and make him look silly... Maybe he hasn't thought through the logic of some of his
statements, think them through then form a consize argument which will demonstrate clearly the error he has made then make it know....
Sometimes though i think most poeple are unable to do this, it's almost as if most people can only think or act when they've been told how too,
it's almost as if 90% of the world is dyspraxic!
