BTW, is this not a violation of Separation of Church and State?

Just asking...

More info from exurbanleague.com:

Schoolkids taught to praise Obama

Update: After a bit of Internet sleuthing, I have found who appears to be behind the video: The publishers of a children’s book titled, I Am Barack Obama by Charisse Carney-Nunes. A cover of the book is placed on an easel to the left of the children and the video was originally posted on the publisher’s YouTube account in observance of Father’s Day.

From their Web site, a description of the book followed by a review:

I Am Barack Obama is not a book about Barack Obama. Rather, it allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, “Who will change the world?” Ultimately, he realizes that he will. I Am Barack Obama highlights for children their personal power to change the world. In the backmatter, children share stories of the possibilities for their lives, as they aspire to the greatness they have seen in Barack. I Am Barack Obama is also the first children’s digibook available interactively along with its companion print edition.

Children must be empowered to know for sure that they can change the world. Charisse has captured this incredible moment in history by writing a book that allows young people to see themselves in President Obama. To me and so many others, Barack Obama represents intelligence, judgement, courage and service. Yet, the power in I Am Barack Obama is not in Barack himself. The power, instead, is in each and every child who finds their purpose and manifests a new destiny through Barack’s example.

— Hill Harper, Author/Actor/Activist and Harvard Law schoolmate of Carney-Nunes and President Obama

I think it's cute. Good or bad, Obama's story is a fascinating tale and he is destined to become a significant chapter in our history. He's a good role model for what the author intentions are, to inspire kids that they can make a difference.

The same could be said of Hitler's story. I think it is way too early to declare his Presidency will be a "significant chapter" or not.

I remember precious few Pols that actually inspire and make a difference. I am not sure the Obama is one of those.

What the heck does Hitler have to do with Obama's story? Never mind, I think Godwin's Law cover's that all ready...

He WILL be a significant chapter for one simple reason: The first African American President.

Excal - Godwin notwithstanding, my point is there are many people out there both good and bad that have fascinating stories. I just don't think that many of them, especially pols (of any party - BTW) are truly remarkable. Then again, I think most pols (especially DC'ers) waste more than they produce.

I agree with you that he is the first African American President - yawn

There is a vast difference between an fascinating story and an inspiring story. Obama will be categorized in the later.

"a fascinating story"

Plus, inspiring to only you (versus other posters here).

On the other hand, if it inspires you to climb out of the place that you are in that would be good for all of us.

Is that attitude racist?

I think he will be forgotten as the worst president in modern history. History will see his spending as near criminally reckless, and his total lack of leadership at home and abroad to be an embarrassment to the USA for years.
NOT because he is black, but because he is the ridiculous combination of naive and arrogant.
