About That School-Speech from Obama

The WaPo has a VERY interesting nugget.

When critics lashed out at President Obama for scheduling a speech to public school students this month, accusing him of wanting to indoctrinate children to his politics, his advisers quickly scrubbed his planned comments for potentially problematic wording. They then reached out to progressive Web sites such as the Huffington Post, liberal bloggers and Democratic pundits to make their case to a friendly audience.

Which, undoubtedly, accounts for the "missing 12 minutes". The speech was originally scheduled for 30 minutes and came in at 18. We know damn well that the One would NEVER give up face-time unless there was a really, really, really good reason.

Well, now it makes sense that they couldn't release the text of the speech until Labor Day.
