I just read the text for Obama's speech to school kids: it is non-political and strong on American values
Well worth reading since some crazy right wingers have been telling lies and sowing so much disinformation. I have very much appreciated some conservative pundits who have publicly called this disinformation "stupid." Not all conservatives put the well being of their political party above the well being of our country. Good for them for speaking up!
When I was in grade school, a friend's father, who was conservative, helped arrange for our whole class to get to see President John F. Kennedy speak. I think that my friend's Dad disagreed with President Kennedy on things political, but he wanted his son and his son's classmates to hear a President speak.
There is a lot of anti-American rhetoric coming from some conservatives - it is up to the rest us, the majority I think, to speak up and point out stupidity when we hear it.
