This is what a friend of mine had to say about it.......
Direct brainwashing of children. A low presidential low. On 9/8/09 a political pedophile goes on the prowl in our nations schools. No matter how much you may love this nut - children aren't old enough to consent to being "touched politically".
I can't imagine the mentality of a person who would (seriously) express such a conclusion.
When I was in school, I would have considered such a visit by the POTUS as an outstandingly lifting experience.
I now have grandchildren in (public) school.
I would consider such a visit to their class room a wondrous occasion.
Encouragement to do your best...stay in school...apply yourself is what I/we all encourage for our children.
Who would interpret such a visit a 'political encroachment' on the lives of those children?????????
