    I think its a bunch of celebrities pledging to do stuff that they will pay someone else to do. I only recognized around 4 of them though so I could be wrong.

    I would hope these celebrities were already donating their time and money to help people and not just because Obama told them too.

    It's an old video of celebrities pledging to do community work and the like. Why the OP felt it relevant now, I don't now.

    I think one guy was off of good charlotte, I think I saw the lady from "something about mary", ashton kutcher, and I think I saw 50 cent (I think he has a big gap in his teeth).

    Maybe he'll ask every kid to send a dollar to Washington for UHC. :eek:

    Seems to me, while the criticism of his speech to kids is bat ***** crazy, it serves the Dems right. They pulled the same crap when Bush the first did it.

    I just thought is was a stupid video. I really don't care what the Hollywood stars are doing.

    Except the rich kids will have to send $2 instead because, you know, they can afford it.

    Yeah, it really is. Talk about spreading propaganda

    "I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama"....

    "I pledge to be a servant of our President"...

    Need I remind you that the President is there solely to serve us? This is quite creepy. What's next? Obama posters and pledging to him before classes start? Sounds crazy but so are the two quotes sponsored by BO. I mean how does one think this starts in other countries (NK, China, Cuba, etc). Starts with this type of thing and builds from there

    *waits for the BO supporters to jump to his defense where there is none to be made

    To be fair once Bush had been told it was a national emergency on 9/11 he probably should have quickly left the school so he could lead the country.

    If you're at work and your website goes down, if its your responsibility you basically drop anything low priority to go and fix it. Reading to kids is low priority for a president.

    Defend what exactly? Celebrity endorsements during a campaign? Pledging to help out? What exactly is the problem here? We can't help out our government, its only supposed to help us?

    What exactly is the crime here that needs to be defended?

    Absolutely ridiculous.

    "I don't normally get involved in politics, but I think the stakes are too high this election. Mayor Giuliani has the executive experience, proven record and bold vision needed to lead our country," -- Robert Duvall

    "If you guys vote for Al Gore, you're out of your minds ... Gore's a knucklehead ... just the lying and mendacity of the last eight years of the regime that Al Gore was a part and parcel of ... I mean, there is only so much lying the American people will take before they go, 'Uh, this doesn't seem like a good idea.' You have to look at what he does and what he stands for." -- Bruce Willis

    "I called the White House, called President [George Bush] and asked what I could do. So I got involved with the national foster care program." -- Bruce Willis
