Political cartoonist John Cole offers a nice perspective on the Presidential-school-address hysterics coming from the right-wing drama queens:
Both Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush gave similar speeches and, like Obama, were attacked by opponents for inappropriately mixing official duties with politics.
But the note being struck by far-right Obama-hater wing of the GOP is abrasive at best. They claim is sounding off about the president’s plans to “indoctrinate” America’s children with his “socialist philosophy,” and that parents should be given the right to inspect his speech beforehand, as if listening to the elected leader of the free world were the equivalent of reading “Catcher in the Rye” or taking a course in sex education.
