… Or not.
MSNBC has released a copy of President Obama’s speech to students, in which he told stories from his childhood, used Republican-esque ineffective “people just like you” stories and failed to mention politics even once.
I don’t understand the big fuss over Obama wanting to talk to students. All he wants is for them to get good grades and make it into a university they will never be able to afford.
On a scale of 1-10 on how one-sided it was, it was a Joe Liberman. It actually strongly reminds me of something my mother — a high school counselor at a public school — would say to her students.
Honestly, if I were in high school, I would probably have fallen asleep during the speech. It’s too difficult to keep a speech at a level kindergarteners can understand while managing to not insult the older kids’ intelligence. Good effort, Mr. Obama, but not quite achieved.
But really, people should just be glad we have a president who has an IQ higher than his audience’s. (I am talking to you, Dubya.)
