42. So you really believe
that President Obama is trying to get votes with this speech? I don't. I think he is trying to inspire young people, and especially minority youth, to get an education and be successful in life. You know that the public school system has failed many minority students. Here we have the ultimate role model in President Obama. Imagine the pride in sitting and watching this man speak to you and your classmates. For me, this outweighs any petty complaints by misinformed parents. I have enjoyed your posts on education in the past. But I wonder about your motivation now in defending right wing parents.
