    I might have studied a little more. Don't expect "in your face" miraculous results. Anything worth while, doesn't come easy or cheap.

    Besides, any intellectual advancements made in the 80s or 90s were surely wiped out by the deep space vacuum of intellect named "W"! We gotta rebuild!

    If true.....I'm praying at least one Doctor is watching with keen interest today.

    Well, the President said exactly that himself in the first 70 seconds of his interview with a 11 year old in August. Damn left wing media must have been covering it up.

    So, by your reasoning, if he does not do everything different than his predecessors he fails to live up to "change"? Wow, you must be really bummed that he generally continued Bush's policies on bailing out and stabilizing the banking industry, keeping defense secretary Gates, and now chairman Bernanke. What a disappointment. Perhaps, to sell more cars, create jobs in road painting, and fulfill his promise of "change", he should sign an executive order that turns our transportation system to one where we drive on the left side of the road too. Is that what you are looking for? Would that then meet your expectations for "change".

    Hey, I have an idea, why don't we watch the speech and then comment on it.

    On which station will it be televised and what time? I would like to record it and watch it later after I get off work so I can make my own assessment of what the speech was all about just so Obama doesn't slip in some mind controlling sublimital messages in there.

    I know that sometimes, you get the sense from TV that you can be rich and successful without any hard work -- that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star, when chances are, you're not going to be any of those things.
    Boy, he sure dashed a lot of dreams there...

    Seriously, I dislike Obama as much as anybody, but there is really nothing in that text to take offense to. Sure, something may have been deleted, but we'll never know. Those that want to believe that something was taken out will, and those that don't want to believe won't. He really should have kept it a little shorter though. Somebody didn't think about the attention span of his audience.

    You know, in and of itself...the contents of the speech are admirable.

    It was just the way it was presented and the accompanying class "material" that put off so many folks.

    I daresay that no matter the party of the administration that attempted the same action would have met with disapproval.

    Parents have a right to voice their opinions on the subject material presented to their kids and how it's presented.

    Because of all the previous heavy-handedness from the current congress and administration has left people very jumpy and nervous as to the motives behind everything coming out of Washington, these days.

    In cooking parlance, their presentation rates an "F".

    So he ran and was appointed on "change" and "hope." Where are they?
