Glorious Leader's Annual Address to Nation's Youth Revisited

By tha malcontent

(ap) - And so he's going to do it again on September 14th... I revisited last years in preparation for this years... New commentary and all!

Prepared Remarks of President Barack Obama: Back to School Event

Arlington, Virginia
September 8, 2009


The President: Hello everyone – how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. And we’ve got students tuning in from all across America, kindergarten through twelfth grade. I’m glad you all could join us today.

(How in the **** does this man expect a Kindergartener to Comprehend what High Schoolers probably can't in this Campaign Speech?... And why does he feel the need to mimic 3rd World Dictators with this addressing of the Country's Youth?... It's creepy... Seriously. - tha malcontent)

I know that for many of you, today is the first day of school. And for those of you in kindergarten, or starting middle or high school, it’s your first day in a new school, so it’s understandable if you’re a little nervous. I imagine there are some seniors out there who are feeling pretty good right now, with just one more year to go. And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer, and you could’ve stayed in bed just a little longer this morning.

(If he hasn't already lost the Kindergarteners, they are now asking, "what is nervous?"... Seriously, Barry? - tha malcontent)

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in Indonesia for a few years, and my mother didn’t have the money to send me where all the American kids went to school. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday – at 4:30 in the morning.

(And in with the, "it's all about Barry I. Obama" tripe... Note here that he is referring to "Family"... That would be his Mother's 2nd Muslim Husband. And methinks he did have the money to send little Barry Hussein Obama Soetoro to where the American kids went... And as for his getting schooled by his Mother, why did he write about the Muslim school he went to in Indonesia in his own book? He attended Basuki School from 1969 to 1971. "During the five years that we would live with my stepfather in Indonesia, I was sent first to a neighborhood Catholic school and then to a predominantly Muslim school..." ~ Barry from "The Skunkdacity of Dope. I don't know nor do I care if he's a Muslim, but he isn't being Honest with Glorious Nation's Youth in his "poor me" story of his own youth. - tha malcontent)

Now I wasn’t too happy about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d fall asleep right there at the kitchen table. But whenever I’d complain, my mother would just give me one of those looks and say, "This is no picnic for me either, buster."

(I'd say it was no picnic for her... She shipped him back to Hawaii to be raised by his White Grandparents where he would be prep schooled, play at the beach and do some cocaine with the radicals and Marxists that he said he "gravitated" to. - tha malcontent)

So I know some of you are still adjusting to being back at school. But I’m here today because I have something important to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to talk with you about your education and what’s expected of all of you in this new school year.

(Why?... Are you the President of America's Schools? When the hell did someone tell him this was a good idea? He's addressing 5-year-olds to 18-year-olds with this self-serving TRIPE! - tha malcontent)

Now I’ve given a lot of speeches about education. And I’ve talked a lot about responsibility.

("Responsibility"?... Like when you constantly complain about "inhereting" this economy and the deficit spending that you and your Party who controls Congress continue to expand? - tha malcontent)

I’ve talked about your teachers’ responsibility for inspiring you, and pushing you to learn.

(Allah knows you like to hear yourself say the things that are on your trusty Teleprompter-in-Chief!- tha malcontent)

I’ve talked about your parents’ responsibility for making sure you stay on track, and get your homework done, and don’t spend every waking hour in front of the TV or with that Xbox.

(I'm sure X-box appreciated the shout out! He in bed with Microsoft or something? - tha malcontent)

I’ve talked a lot about your government’s responsibility for setting high standards, supporting teachers and principals, and turning around schools that aren’t working where students aren’t getting the opportunities they deserve.

("...setting high standards...", yet he and his Party have supported lowing standards for some because Liberals assume Failure on some in this country... Not based on the content of their character... But instead, on the color of their skin. - tha malcontent)

But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world – and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities. Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it takes to succeed.

(True... How's that workin' out in Chicago, Mr. Community Organizer? - tha malcontent)

And that’s what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education. I want to start with the responsibility you have to yourself.

Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. That’s the opportunity an education can provide.

Maybe you could be a good writer – maybe even good enough to write a book or articles in a newspaper – but you might not know it until you write a paper for your English class. 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. Maybe you could be a mayor or a Senator or a Supreme Court Justice, but you might not know that until you join student government or the debate team.

(The iPhone?... Did Steve Jobs pay for this mention? Sony's gonna feel left out, Mr. President! - tha malcontent)

And no matter what you want to do with your life – I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it. You want to be a doctor, or a teacher, or a police officer? You want to be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military? You’re going to need a good education for every single one of those careers. You can’t drop out of school and just drop into a good job. You’ve got to work for it and train for it and learn for it.

("I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it."... Simply NOT true. And there are a LOT of Youth in America who have degrees that can't find jobs in this Great Recession yet they still have MASSIVE student loans to pay... And who's gonna flip the burgers, clean your kids Private School, or keep the grass on all of those golf courses you frequent looking so nice?... People with a Masters degree? Oh wait, I know... The Illegals you plan on letting stay and the others you plan on letting in. - tha malcontent)

And 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. What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future.

(How about putting an end to your drunken sailor spending, Mr. President? These kids have to pay that enormous bill in the future while you try to shore up votes for you and your party with that borrowed money! – tha malcontent)

You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment. You’ll need the insights and critical thinking skills you gain in history and social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and make our nation more fair and more free. You’ll need the creativity and ingenuity you develop in all your classes to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our economy.

(“AIDS… Poverty… Homelessness… Crime… Discrimination…” And our Country is OBVIOUSLY not “fair” enough for this President, because he and his Wife can’t help but to bring it up ALL of the time. “You’ll need the creativity and ingenuity you develop in all your classes to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our economy.”… Seriously?… Didn’t these kids parents elect you to create jobs?… Now you’re passing the buck onto these children? – tha malcontent)

We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills and intellect so you can help solve our most difficult problems. If you don’t do that – if you quit on school – you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.

(Remember, this heavy load is being broadcast to FIVE-YEAR-OLDS… True story! – tha malcontent)

Now I know it’s not always easy to do well in school. I know a lot of you have challenges in your lives right now that can make it hard to focus on your schoolwork.

(Like Daddy losing his job even after you have been the President for 2 years and your Party has had the purse strings since they won the House and Senate back in 2006? – tha malcontent)

I get it. I know what that’s like. My father left my family when I was two years old, and I was raised by a single mother who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn’t always able to give us things the other kids had. There were times when I missed having a father in my life. There were times when I was lonely and felt like I didn’t fit in.

(Again with the, “it’s all about me!”… So was you Mom a single Mother, or was she remarried in Indonesia?… And I thought your Grandparents raised you for the majority of your youth. Confusing. – tha malcontent)

So I wasn’t always as focused as I should have been. I did some things I’m not proud of, and got in more trouble than I should have. And my life could have easily taken a turn for the worse.

(Like doing Cocaine and associating with Marxists? – tha malcontent)

But I was fortunate. I got a lot of second chances and had the opportunity to go to college, and law school, and follow my dreams. My wife, our First Lady Michelle Obama, has a similar story. Neither of her parents had gone to college, and they didn’t have much. But they worked hard, and she worked hard, so that she could go to the best schools in this country.

Some of you might not have those advantages. Maybe you don’t have adults in your life who give you the support that you need. Maybe someone in your family has lost their job, and there’s not enough money to go around. Maybe you live in a neighborhood where you don’t feel safe, or have friends who are pressuring you to do things you know aren’t right.

(Where are the jobs, Barry?… These kids were led to believe you’d be saving their Homes and their Mommy and Daddy’s jobs and weren’t they supposed to have Healthcare for FREEEEEEEEEE?! – tha malcontent)

But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life – what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home – that’s no excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse for not trying.

(I concur… If only the President and his Party didn’t assume failure on certain kids in practice though! – tha malcontent)

Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s written your destiny for you. Here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your own future.

That’s what young people like you are doing every day, all across America.

Young people like Jazmin Perez, from Roma, Texas. Jazmin didn’t speak English when she first started school. Hardly anyone in her hometown went to college, and neither of her parents had gone either. But she worked hard, earned good grades, got a scholarship to Brown University, and is now in graduate school, studying public health, on her way to being Dr. Jazmin Perez.

(^Prop #1. – tha malcontent)

I’m thinking about Andoni Schultz, from Los Altos, California, who’s fought brain cancer since he was three. He’s endured all sorts of treatments and surgeries, one of which affected his memory, so it took him much longer – hundreds of extra hours – to do his schoolwork. But he never fell behind, and he’s headed to college this fall.

(^Prop #2. – tha malcontent)

And then there’s Shantell Steve, from my hometown of Chicago, Illinois. Even when bouncing from foster home to foster home in the toughest neighborhoods, she managed to get a job at a local health center; start a program to keep young people out of gangs; and she’s on track to graduate high school with honors and go on to college.

(^Prop #3. – tha malcontent)

Jazmin, Andoni and Shantell aren’t any different from any of you. They faced challenges in their lives just like you do. But they refused to give up. They chose to take responsibility for their education and set goals for themselves. And I expect all of you to do the same.

(Jazmin, Andoni and Shantell… Interesting… - tha malcontent)

That’s why today, I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education – and to do everything you can to meet them. Your goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spending time each day reading a book. Maybe you’ll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in your community. Maybe you’ll decide to stand up for kids who are being teased or bullied because of who they are or how they look, because you believe, like I do, that all kids deserve a safe environment to study and learn. Maybe you’ll decide to take better care of yourself so you can be more ready to learn. And along those lines, I hope you’ll all wash your hands a lot, and stay home from school when you don’t feel well, so we can keep people from getting the flu this fall and winter.

(Community Organizing… Environmental Activism… And to top it off, the FLU IS COMING!… Again, there are 5-year-olds napping during this! – tha malcontent)

Whatever you resolve to do, I want you to commit to it. I want you to really work at it.

I know that sometimes, you get the sense from TV that you can be rich and successful without any hard work -- that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star, when chances are, you’re not going to be any of those things.

(Or you could be the President… What has Barry done again? – tha malcontent)

But the truth is, being successful is hard. You won’t love every subject you study. You won’t click with every teacher. Not every homework assignment will seem completely relevant to your life right this minute. And you won’t necessarily succeed at everything the first time you try.

That’s OK. Some of the most successful people in the world are the ones who’ve had the most failures. JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book was rejected twelve times before it was finally published. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team, and he lost hundreds of games and missed thousands of shots during his career. But he once said, "I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

These people succeeded because they understand that you can’t let your failures define you – you have to let them teach you. You have to let them show you what to do differently next time. If you get in trouble, that doesn’t mean you’re a troublemaker, it means you need to try harder to behave. If you get a bad grade, that doesn’t mean you’re stupid, it just means you need to spend more time studying.

(A bad grade could also mean that the test isn’t fair and geared towards Whitey. In that case, the standards should be lowered instead of expectations lifted. Liberalism 101. – tha malcontent)

No one’s born being good at things, you become good at things through hard work. You’re not a varsity athlete the first time you play a new sport. You don’t hit every note the first time you sing a song. You’ve got to practice. It’s the same with your schoolwork. You might have to do a math problem a few times before you get it right, or read something a few times before you understand it, or do a few drafts of a paper before it’s good enough to hand in.

(And maybe if you are lucky enough you can author (2) books about yourself before you are 50 just like the President! – tha malcontent)

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do that every day. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength. It shows you have the courage to admit when you don’t know something, and to learn something new. So find an adult you trust – a parent, grandparent or teacher; a coach or counselor – and ask them to help you stay on track to meet your goals.

(Could I ask a Community Organizer for help, Barry?… - tha malcontent)

And even when you’re struggling, even when you’re discouraged, and you feel like other people have given up on you – don’t ever give up on yourself. Because when you give up on yourself, you give up on your country.

(“Because when you give up on yourself, you give up on your country.”~ Fidel Obama to Glorious Nation’s Youth. – tha malcontent)

The story of America isn’t about people who quit when things got tough. It’s about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best.

(I thought it was about raping the Indians and enslaving Blacks? – tha malcontent)

It’s the story of students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a revolution and found this nation. Students who sat where you sit 75 years ago who overcame a Depression and won a world war; who fought for civil rights and put a man on the moon. Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded Google, Twitter and Facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other.

(The Founders were children in American schools before the Revolution? – tha malcontent)

So today, I want to ask you, what’s your contribution going to be? What problems are you going to solve? What discoveries will you make? What will a president who comes here in twenty or fifty or one hundred years say about what all of you did for this country?

(They’ll say that they had to pay off the Socialists who were in Power’s Debt and did with less because the DemocRATS of the day were buying Votes with other people’s money! – tha malcontent)

Your families, your teachers, and I are doing everything we can to make sure you have the education you need to answer these questions. I’m working hard to fix up your classrooms and get you the books, equipment and computers you need to learn. But you’ve got to do your part too. So I expect you to get serious this year. I expect you to put your best effort into everything you do. I expect great things from each of you. So don’t let us down – don’t let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all proud. I know you can do it.

(“I’m working hard to fix up your classrooms and get you the books, equipment and computers you need to learn.”… And don’t forget to pay me back and Vote for me in a couple of years you High Schoolers!… The next Presidential election ain’t that far away!  – tha malcontent)

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.

(Separation of Church and State!… Separation of Church and State!… Not very inclusive and tolerant of the little Atheists, Barry! - tha malcontent)
