Text of President Obama’s Planned Speech to Schoolkids

7 09 2009

Just released here.

I like the commentary at Time Magazine’s political blog Swampland:

Rather than any lefty, neo-socialist, communitarian brainwashing, President Obama’s speech to your kids reads like a paean to individual striving and free market capitalism, the sort of thing that Ayn Rand and Barry Goldwater might have signed onto. At root, Obama’s message is one of individual responsibility, a disquisition on the freedom of each American youth to fail or succeed on their own tenacity and merits. . .
