Amid the controversy and furor, Obama is being pressured to drop the public option for his planned Back To School address. A defiant Obama insisted:
"If you like the teacher your child has, then you can keep that teacher. Nobody is going to force your little Johnny or Sally to watch."
"If you like your child's school, you keep it." As long as they meet all the new regulations and lesson plans I favor."
"As an aside, and as a totally unrelated housekeeping NEA funding issue, I would ask all teachers to simply email me their attendance list at email@example.com for September 8th."
As for the speech titled, "Silly Season - The Audacity of my Detractors" by Barack Hussein Obama, The White House plans to release the speech online Monday so parents can read it.
