And a Word on Needless Opposition
In the spirit of The No Kool-Aid Zone, where we drink the Kool-Aid for no man, comes this thought: you know folks, if the President wants to talk to schoolkids next week about the importance of studying hard, staying in school, and the like, is it really such a big deal? C’mon, nobody will ever mistake anything I say on this site as being supportive of the big-government socialism embodied in this president, but honestly, is there anything wrong with a back-to-school pep talk from the Commander in Chief? I don’t think it’s our duty, as the loyal opposition, to oppose every move the man makes; I can sure cut him some slack on this one. And I’ll give him credit–until proven otherwise, which I suppose could happen–for having enough sense to bend over backwards not to come off as politically-partisan in his schoolroom chat. So to all the conservative types who are jumping him over this thing, let’s all just take a pill, shall we? Bush I did it, and apparently Reagan did it as well (contrary to the early reports), so let’s just suck it up and shut up on this one, how ’bout it?
