I hereby present, without comment, a Q&A with my son Jonah, age 9, 4th grader at Venable Elementary School in Charlottesville, about President Obama's speech today:
AZNEW: What did the President tell you?
JONAH: To stay in school, and though it gets really hard and rough throughout the years, to never give up in school.
What did you think of that?
I thought it was pretty cool. It would have been better if he made the speech at Venable.
Are you going to stay in school?
Was it exciting to see the President?
Are you now or have you ever been a Socialist?
What’s that mean?
Well, it’s a way of thinking that makes some grown-ups mad. And some grown-up thought President Obama would turn you into a Socialist. Do you think he might have?
Do you love America?
Do you still love America after hearing President Obama?
Do you like President Obama?
Because he’s a good president
And I have to ask you one more question.
Creigh Deeds or Bob McDonnell?
