Facts & Figures Show “Hall Pass” Resistance to President Obama’s Speech is Partisan Grandstanding
and abetted by mainstream media that loves a spectacle.
surveys were done yesterday on the “appropriateness” of President
Obama’s speech to schoolchildren, one asking the opinions of parents of
schoolkids in Fresno,
CA, the other of parents of schoolkids in different parts of Missouri.
of course highly approved of President Obama’s speech. In MO, the lowest
approval by moderates was 74% for ANY president to address schoolchildren, and
78% approval for our current president to do so.
the mid-section of California, far from the liberal cities of the north or
south, moderates approved of Obama’s speech to kids by 73%, same as they’d approve
for any president.
I’m willing to bet at any given time, 25-30% of people polled will disapprove
of anything, including breathing, sunshine, and kittens. These currently seem
to be known as conservatives. *wink*
this a reason for the world to screech–and I mean SCREECH–to a halt?
I’d like to see school boards stop flailing about and get some equilibrium. I’d
like to see broadcast media stop getting wee-wee’d up at every tiny little
parents of public school kids contemplating a walkout: wouldn’t it just be
easier and less economically punitive on your school and all the kids who
attend to simply have a talk with your kid(s) about it over dinner, when you
find out how their day went like you usually do?
bonus–no need to scramble to find childcare for a kid who’s staying out of
school all day just to miss 20-30 minutes of something you may disagree with.
