Regarding Meredith's post immediately below, can you imagine a video being played in any school featuring Americans pledging to:

-- support George W. Bush
-- do what it takes to protect our national security
-- preserve our time-honored moral values
-- fight to keep taxes low, so people can use their hard-earned money to support their families, not a bloated and wasteful government
-- help to preserve the free enterprise system that has made this country great?

Those are essentially the analogues to the video linked below.  Had  such a thing ever seen the light of day, the left's screaming would have been heard from coast to coast.

Had George W. Bush's Department of Education ever sought to broadcast a presidential speech to the nation's schoolchildren -- and suggested they follow up by writing a letter to themselves about how they could help them -- the left would have gone absolutely beserk.

What's a bit unsettling is the common theme -- let's all help Barack Obama.  Not help the country or preserve our freedom or secure our nation -- but help Barack Obama.  In the end, it's all about him, isn't it?
