    That was a funny parody. Sadly, there are people who think that way.

    Ha, love the parody. lol

    So one of the arguments I have heard is that Obama is INDEED sneaking some politics into his speech is when he mentions the word 'vaccine'.

    Maybe you could be an innovator or an inventor – maybe even good enough to come up with the next iPhone or a new medicine or vaccine – but you might not know it until you do a project for your science class.

    Supposedly trying to overtly push his agenda about the vaccine for N1H1.

    Another common 'argument' is that Obama wants to appear to be a nice guy, appeal to the kids, so that in the near future they will be more willing to accept more 'sinister' socialist agenda.

    I will probably find more hysterical counters. Just as I expected, the right wing is pulling 'logic' out of their asses.

    She has also been laughing her ass off over the article.

    She also told me that Obama never sleeps, that his eyes glow red, and that people have been mysteriously disappearing from the White House.



    The problem with trying to parody this nonsense is that it's so far out there already.

    Former first lady Laura Bush, of all people, comes to President Obama's defence.
    Source: CNN.COM


    Laura Bush praises Obama,
    bemoans excessive partisanship


    PARIS, France (CNN) -- Former first lady Laura Bush praised the performance
    of her husband's successor Monday, breaking with many Republicans in telling
    CNN that she thinks President Obama is doing a good job under tough circumstances.

    She also criticized Washington's sharp political divide during an interview
    covering a range of topics including her thoughts on first lady Michelle
    Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the situation in Afghanistan and
    Myanmar, and life after eight tumultuous years in the White House.

    Bush sat down with CNN on Monday during a United Nations meeting in
    Paris, France, where she was promoting global literacy, a cause she
    trumpeted during her husband's administration.
    ()
    The typically reserved former first lady defended Obama's decision to
    deliver a back-to-school speech to students, putting her at odds with
    many conservatives afraid that the president will use the opportunity
    to advance his political agenda.

    "I think he is [doing a good job]," Bush said when asked to assess Obama's
    job performance. "I think he has got a lot on his plate, and he has tackled
    a lot to start with, and that has probably made it more difficult."

    Michelle Obama is also "doing great," she said, in part by turning the White
    House into a comfortable home for her family.

    Referencing the uproar over Obama's address to schoolchildren, which will
    be aired nationwide Tuesday, Laura Bush said it's "really important for
    everyone to respect the president of the United States."


    Bush didn't completely dismiss the concerns of some conservatives but
    noted that controversial Education Department plans recommending that
    students draft letters discussing what they can do to help Obama had
    been changed.

    "I think there is a place for the president ... to talk to schoolchildren and
    encourage" them, she said. Parents should follow his example and "encourage
    their own children to stay in school and to study hard and to try to achieve
    the dream that they have."

    Bush indicated that she didn't think it was fair for Obama to be labeled
    a "socialist" by critics and expressed her disappointment with the intensely
    polarized nature of contemporary American politics.


    Part of the reason for the polarization, she said, was the increase in the
    number of congressional districts dominated by either strongly conservative
    or liberal voters.

    "We've seen that for the last eight years, certainly, and we're still seeing it,"
    she said. "That's just a fact of life."

    Bush conceded that after her husband was elected president, he was unable
    to replicate his success as governor of Texas in reaching across the aisle to
    Democrats.

    "He was disappointed that that was not the way it worked out in
    Washington," she said. "I'm sure President Obama didn't expect it to be that
    way [either]. ... All of us need to do what we can to come together on
    issues."

    Despite her husband's disappointment, he is "doing very well," she said. Both
    of them are now working on their memoirs, she noted.

    Though the former first lady criticized the excessive partisanship of
    Washington, she expressed gratitude for Cheney's decision to vocally
    defend her husband's performance.

    Cheney has been outspoken in his defense of the Bush administration's
    national security record, which has been sharply criticized on, among other
    things, questions relating to the detention and interrogation of terrorist
    suspects.

    "I think that Vice President Cheney has every right to speak out, and I
    appreciate that he is defending" the administration, Bush said. "I think that
    is important. I think there is a place for that."

    Bush also said it doesn't bother her husband that Cheney's "out there being
    critical."

    The former first lady said her husband still speaks with Cheney occasionally.
    Multiple sources have indicated that the two men parted ways on several
    issues in the last years of their administration, including Bush's refusal to
    offer a pardon for former top Cheney aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

    Libby was convicted on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and lying
    to investigators looking into the leak that resulted in the exposure of CIA
    agent Valerie Plame Wilson.

    Though Bush expressed confidence that her husband will ultimately be
    remembered as "somebody who stood for freedom and who stood for the
    security of our country," she admitted that she's worried about the current
    situation in Afghanistan.

    "I'm very concerned, of course," she said.

    "All of us are concerned, and everybody, as they look at Afghanistan from
    around the world, really hope and want to [do] whatever they can to help
    the government stabilize, to see that the elections were fair."

    Bush said she hoped people "will redouble their efforts" to help the country
    fend off Taliban and al Qaeda extremists.

    She also repeated her outspoken criticism of the government of Myanmar,
    also known by its former name of Burma, which has come under fire for
    imprisoning pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi.

    "She's always been held under house arrest [because] they're afraid of her
    popularity. They think that undermines their regime," Bush said.

    "I hope that they'll see what she really wants. ... She wants [the nation
    to have] a peaceful transition to a democracy and to have the chance for
    Burma to really build itself [into] a very wealthy and educated nation."

    After her husband's eight controversial years in the White House, what does
    Bush have to say to critics who believe he had a negative, destructive
    influence in the world?


    "I would say that that's absolutely not right," Bush said.

    "I don't think they have either the right view of him or what his
    responsibilities are and were as president of the United States."
    The bold parts I accentuated are ironic: she's fighting illiteracy, which
    became her main task while her husband (you know, the illiterate one)
    was in office. Coincidence? She probably has to help him write his
    memoir, too. Either spellcheck or take dictation.

    Laura came to Michele Obama's defense during the campaign as well.

    Good for her...I was waiting for her husband to say something in Obama's defense, but this is good, too. Someone needs to call down the angry scrapbookers.

    When I hear this, my first thought is that perhaps those parents and their kids should get H1N1 just so they can appreciate the US health system.

    Yeah, that irony is funny. She should've started her literacy campaign with Dubya.

    She lost me when she started praising Cheney. But, at least, she's not going off the deep end like a lot of Republicans. Which means, she'll be branded a 'turncoat socialist' by the GOP.

    I freakin love Barack Obama. Gordon Brown doesn't seem to have the time to try and encourage schoolkids, he's too busy stuttering his way through speeches everyone disregards because he's so ineffectual.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    If this site is real, GW got a 1206 on his SAT, which is actually respectable. I think he only pretended to sound illiterate so as to garner support from those who actually were.

    As for Dubya 'pretending to sound illiterate' he's not that good of an actor.
