Per last week’s controversy, the Obama back-to-school speech has now been pre-released and if there is a criticism to level it’s that this uproar may have made them gun shy. Pretty tepid stuff…the only risk to the nation’s young people is boredom. Meanwhile, it makes the study guide* look all the more innocuous now that the context is crystal clear — helping the president, any president by the way, achieve these goals should occasion no controversy.
Wish they’d held the line even more now…Upside is that conservatives will look especially stupid railing against this.
*Is the media CW that ‘this was all ridiculous but the study guide was a small mistake and it’s good that the Admin fixed it’ simply a fig leaf for some semblance of ‘balance?’ Let’s hope so.
