From DailyKosTV.

NBC/CNBC/MSNBC White House correspondent John Harwood on how ridiculous not allowing Obama to speak to students would be:

"MONICA NOVOTNY: John, what about this controversy over opposition to Obama’s speech to school children?

JOHN HARWOOD: I gotta’ tell you Monica, I’ve been watching politics for a long time, and this one is really over-the-top. What is shows you is there are a lot of cynical people who try to fan controversy, and let’s face it, in a country of 300 million people, there are a lot of stupid people too, because if you believe that it’s somehow unhealthy for kids, for the president to say "work hard and stay in school," you’re stupid. In fact, I’m worried for some of those kids of those parents who are upset — I’m not sure they are smart enough to raise those kids."

color me stupid i guess. i just think barry should be dealing with two wars and grenade rockets being sent from korea to iran. i can take care of my own children and they already know about the value of education. if you want to have an effect, try talking to 20ish kids who are having kids with zero plan to raise them. in the meantime, back away from my dinner table.

if that's your view then you're not the topic - no offense, keep being a good parent.

we can't control what the potus talks about or works on. you can vote, i can't.

if he was gonna be talking somewhere today, i don't mind what he said. i don't presume to tell him what to do, i.e. i assume it wasn't a choice between talking about education and grenade rockets
