Gee, what's all the hubbub?

Il Duce just can't believe all the hubbub over his planned indoctrination of school children on Tuesday.

The White House on Friday dismissed as pointless the furor over President Barack Obama's plan to deliver a televised back-to-school speech to the nation's students.

"I think we've reached a little bit of the silly season when the president of the United States can't tell kids in school to study hard and stay in school," presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters. "I think both political parties agree that the dropout rate is something that threatens our long-term economic success."
Yeah. About that. If you think we're so stupid that we believe that all Il Duce is going to do is give a "stay in school" pep talk, then you're stupider than you think we are.

Please! This is a page straight out of Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler. Indoctrinate the children. Indoctrinate the children. Indoctrinate the children.

The original press release regarding Il Duce's speech to the school children indicated that the speech's goal is to promote a sense of responsibility within each student for their educational success. But, given the Obama administration's penchant for inserting their message within seemingly innocent "theme" videos (see this example), parents are justified in being alarmed.

Il Duce brought this on himself with his thuggish behavior during the past 8 months. This ain't Chicago, bro. We don't take too kindly to these Mayor Daley-style strong-arm tactics. You need to take a step back and reconsider your tactics before you make Jimmy Carter look like the quintessence of Presidential success.
