Now, this is a positive
Unpublished

Now, this is a positive development and the one that "others" will say, "I have no problem with the president talking to children" but secretly, this development troubles them: A young African-American male being influence by the president and in a POSITIVE way. This was the intent of the speech and should have been targeted specifically toward young minority men. (wonder how the AWM would've recieved that info) Again, a good thing to display positive role models in the minority community and this president's speech demonstrated the influence it has on school-age children.

Ok, all you "troubled"

Ok, all you "troubled" people, here's your chance. Honest to God, justus could read racial discrimination into changing a lightbulb- because it's replacing one white with another.

Now we know why Obama is not paying any attention to the military, he's the Commander & Chief. What we need is a Commander-in-Chief!
