The recent brouhaha over President Obama’s speech to school kids left the popular press wondering why there was so much fuss from conservatives.
I now know more about why conservatives were upset about this speech, courtesy of the Eagle Forum Web site.
Apparently, a contentious You Tube video (find the link in the Web article from Eagle Forum), shown in at least one school about two weeks before Mr. Obama’s speech, had raised conservative “antennas” to a high level of vibration.
Certainly, if the president’s speech had been anything like that video, there would have been justified howls of protest. In fact, the final version of the president’s speech and supporting education plans were toned down even more than earlier on-line versions.
