Helping The Right Reveal The Code Words In Obama's Education Speech Next Week

I went to enough Barack Obama campaign meetings last year to be able to help the Right - - and God Bless those folks for being on top of this threat early - - reveal the true meaning of the coded words the President will use in his upcoming brain-washing address to students across the country.

If you hear the President say, "respect your teachers," that means "obey only the Commissar in the new Re-Education Camps" the government is secretly building in Area 51, and also in nationalized factories.

If the President says, "stay in school and get an education so you can get a better job," that means "leave home immediately and run away to one of the new government-run collective farms masquerading as centers of organic produce, or United Nations Peace Training centers."

If the President says, "don't skip Phy Ed," that means "go home and brow beat your parents using community organizing techniques into supporting a public health care option."

If he says, "don't back away from any challenge; remember, the sky is the limit," that means"always follow the orders from your local teacher's union Central Committee."

If Obama says, "thanks for listening, kids, and have a great year in school," that means "you are now all officially Young Socialist Pioneers; All power to Chairman Barack."

What could be simpler?

James - you know full well that if Bush has done anything like this, the howl of left would have been twice as deafening.

And just as idiotic.

So would you have been just as mocking of your side?

My guess is not.

Hardly, Anon Jim;

Some people might have accused Bush of trying for a partisan advanatage, and exploiting the perks of incumbency, but there has been a long tradition of Presidential/education events, so I think not.

What is nutty about the Right's reaction are these claims of impending Socialistic indoctrination, which is little more than paranoids believing the voices in their heads, or on talk radio.

Guess I should have been more clear in my first post . . .

If Bush had proposed doing the same exact thing as Obama is doing tomorrow during his presidency, the left would have gone nuts and some conservative would have blogged the same kind of inanity you did.

Btw - what exactly is so wrong with referring someone as a Socialist, if in fact from your viewpoint they are?

And in of all places, doesn't Milwaukee have a proud Socialist heritage?
