I just read Obamas's speech to the school kids. I am a suspicious guy, that should be evident.
I see nothing whatsoever except a nice speech to school kids, without a single negative comment I can see. I'll give him props on this one. Nothing wrong in encouraging kids to not give up on themselves, or society around them. Sort of an extension of JFK's "ask not..." quote. Extreme anti-nationalists might not like it, but..that ain't me either. I think you can be both a rational nationalist and NOT be a predatory jingoist. I like to think I am at least.
I know some might say it is a thinly disguised sop to an ongoing effort at "the cult of the personality"....that might be the only negative aspect, but even then, that would be a stretch.
