President Obama is going to give a speech to the nation's children tomorrow (Tuesday, September 8), encouraging them to stay in school, develop their intellect, and not give up on America. This, for some bizarre reason, infuriates Republicans. The Republican platform used to be a small government and a strong national defense. It now appears to have changed to dropping out of school, becoming dumber than a rock, racism, and betraying America.

I draw this conclusion from watching and reading about the massive Republican outcry against those things. President Obama is encouraging our nation's young students to strive for excellence, and the Republicans are up in arms. And they are leading by example. Listen to what they have to say, and marvel at the incredibly tight grasp they have on their new platform. Someone seems to have transplanted the Stupid Tree from its former home to Republican Headquarters. Its branches are blowing in the wind, and soundly smacking Republicans at every sway.

Did they protest when George Bush senior gave his national speech to our nation's children? Why no, no they didn't. How about when George W. Bush, arguably the single dumbest President in this nation's history, gave his speech to the nation's children, encouraging them to stay in school and work towards excellence? Nope, not a peep.

But now we have a black President, clearly one of the smartest we've ever had, giving what has essentially become a traditional speech to our nation's children, being viciously attacked by the racist Republican mob in a manner that we haven't seen since the 1960's. What's so amazing is that they're doing such a poor job of disguising their unabashed hatred, but the average Republican citizenry is buying it hook, line, and sinker. There is no critical thought being displayed by these "people", and not the slightest attempt to fact check. They are total slaves to their irrational fears.

It's times like this that make me deeply embarrassed of the U.S.A. It's obvious that the messages by former Presidents have done no good. Our former children have grown into rampaging morons.
