Backs Obama speech effort

Dear Editor,

After years when many children were left behind, we finally have a president who ranks education among his highest priorities. What's more, he is planning a televised address to encourage and challenge America's school children to maximize their potential.

For this effort President Obama is receiving a sizeable vitriolic backlash. I construe this to be a mixture of racism and a decline in the quality of intelligence and understanding in too large a fraction of this nation's people.

Surely, America, we must give this president all the support we can muster to enable him to exert his considerable leadership ability.
