Dripping with sarcasm

Dear Editor:

I just listened to President Obama’s speech to the students of our country. How dare he expect our students to succeed. How dare he put the burden and guilt on our students by stating that if they fail, they hurt not only themselves, they also hurt our country. How dare he suggest that if our students have problems and hurdles, they overcome them and work hard at school.

Our students have the right to fail. And if they fail, in fact, they will do our country a great service because they will only be qualified do the menial jobs the wealthy and rich need them to do. Imagine how terrible our country would be if every student did well in school and got a college education. Thanks to all the right-wing conservatives who forbid their children from watching this absurd speech.
