I had to sign a permission slip in order for Shayla to see the address President Obama gave to the schools. I can only assume this is because so many parents complained about having their kids subjected to listening to him for all of 10 minutes. I would say I'm a fairly partisan person, but come on people. What are you afraid of? That your kids are going to come home flaming liberals? Ignorant. I think it was nice that he thought of kids... probably because he has young ones still. Ok, so maybe it was his advisers that thought of it. Maybe it was purely tactical. Who really cares and what on earth is the big deal?
