    It's a liability issue because to go on a field trip they are taking the kids off of school property.

    I still think it's nutty to be so enraged that the president wants to talk to school children about education.
    This was my first reaction as well.

    Bush had set a precedent for sending an educational message to school children as well. Some of us old enough may remember JFK's effort to promote a physical fitness program throughout schools as well. So, it's not new for a Pres to become involved with reaching out to school students.

    I think what set people off on this was the effort to prescribe the message be shown in all schools at a certain time, and provide a curriculum to go along with it.

    Evidently, along the way, as the curriculum evolved, it was more of WH input than Dept of Ed input. Don't know if it happened, but heard mention that Dept of Ed removed its name and inserted WH instead.

    I think it will be real interesting to see the final draft of this speech after the words are "recalibrated" and the "inartful" wording is more artfully worded. I'm still not quite sure I understand how a word(s) can be "calibrated", unless one is referring to words of measurements like inches, pounds, etc.

    Via Dave Weigel, here is GOP stalwart Joe Scarborough, tweeting about the Stay-In-School Conspiracy and the intellectual decapitation of his own party:

    http://washingtonindependent.com/577...kes-on-the-gop

    Dear GOP, argue the issues and avoid the insults...or just shut up. Enough with the conspiracy theories. Shouldn't our beliefs be enough?

    GOP leaders in my home state are accusing the POTUS of trying to "indoctrinate America’s children to his socialist agenda." Seriously?

    WHERE ARE THE NATIONAL GOP LEADERS SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THIS KIND OF HYSTERIA?

    Indoctrination of socialism? The president as a racist? Death panels? Seriously? That's all you've got? If so, it's time for you to go home

    I'm just naive enough to believe that a party that shows restraint at home, restraint abroad and respect for the Constitution wins elections

    Perhaps that party just doesn't exist.

    Buzz...I noticed you didn't say a GOP Conservative stalwart...there is a BIG difference.
