I wish there was some way to find out what they scrubbed from that school speech.
When critics lashed out at President Obama for scheduling a speech to public school students this month, accusing him of wanting to indoctrinate children to his politics, his advisers quickly scrubbed his planned comments for potentially problematic wording.
Now I suppose that whatever was removed was pretty innocuous. But I remember hearing early on that the speech was to be 30 minutes long, while it ended up being under 20 minutes. Now we hear that the White House removed portions of the speech in the face of criticism, before it was ever released to the public.
Were the critics right?
Did the lesson plan from the DoE telegraph a political component -- a call for school kids to sign up for the Obama Agenda? And if so, did the White House efforts to get members of the liberal side of the blogospher to defend the president and attack those who raised concerns amount to a concerted attempt to mislead Americans after Obama and his minions had been caught red-handed?
Enquiring minds want to know!
