There are many records of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt and other Presidents that haven't been run through the politically correct ringer yet. And many of those records will show things worthy of having children sing of them because they helped every American.

I am still trying to figure out in the short time Barak Obama has been President how he has earned the accolades of so many people in this country? I can see maybe special-interest groups singing his praises. Muslim organizations. Health-care- for-all advocates. Groups like this.

To be truthful, this looks like the work of a few government-school employees either trying to get Pres. Obama to recognize them or their school, or there's a chance Pres. Obama is their Messaiah and they'll use whatever means are at their disposal (in this case children) to make sure they're part in singing his praises.

"He (Dr. Dennis King) said he believes teachers have the freedom to express their political views, but not in the classroom."

It seems the teacher(s) abided by that. But because children of that age can barely comprehend politics let alone what would be great or only good, then it appears a teacher or two had their views expressed inside of the school (and on Youtube and national news) through having naive, well-meaning children do that for them.
