Obama to the Kids in School: "Don't Spend all your time on the XBOX"

Obama delivered the noontime speech from a high school in Arlington, Virginia.

Many conservatives over the past week had expressed a fear that the president's address would be used to push a partisan political agenda. In the text of the speech posted Monday on the White House Web site, however, Obama avoided any mention of controversial political initiatives. He repeatedly urged students to work hard and stay in school.

"No matter what you want to do with your life, I guarantee that you'll need an education to do it," he said.

"This isn't just important for your own life and your own future. What you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country."

  • All those who are agianst this speech dropped out of school. Only people without a proper education or memory will attack this speech and call this far left agenda issue.
    Because Bush was/is not able to read he let the children read to him, remeber 9-11...... Ooooo wat a far left agenda Bushg had, starting with kids so young. Bad bad bad. Grow up people and act like adults becuase you write like children that did not fisnish school.

  • He had my attention until about 19 seconds in, when he started talking about the governments responsibility for setting high standards.

    I had to pay a visit to the loo, but I think my stomach has settling down now. I just hate throwing up, don't you?
