It's Horrible: Obama's 'Indoctrination' Speech to Students Calls on Them to Be Responsible

The text of President Obama's school speech has been released and—surprise!—it's hardly the "socialist indoctrination" speech his critics claimed he would deliver.

The fear-mongers were wrong again. (A lot of Republicans owe the White House an apology, including Tulsa Rep. John Sullivan.)

The President—gasp!—wants students to study hard, stay in school and be responsible!

Here's a sample of Obama's "socialism:"
I'm here because I want to talk with you about your education and what's expected of all of you in this new school year.

Now I've given a lot of speeches about education. And I've talked a lot about responsibility.

I've talked about your teachers' responsibility for inspiring you, and pushing you to learn.

I've talked about your parents' responsibility for making sure you stay on track, and get your homework done, and don't spend every waking hour in front of the TV or with that Xbox.

I've talked a lot about your government's responsibility for setting high standards, supporting teachers and principals, and turning around schools that aren't working where students aren't getting the opportunities they deserve.

But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world - and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities. Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it takes to succeed.

How stupid can things get? Is there a bottom?
