On Tuesday, Obama intends to broadcast a message to the nation’s schoolchildren stressing the importance of hard work and staying in school.

Conservatives are apoplectic about this:

Florida GOP Chairman Jim Greer released a statement this week accusing Obama of using taxpayer money to “indoctrinate” children.

“As the father of four children, I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama’s socialist ideology,” Greer said.

I have read my Max Weber and was under the impression that an ethic stressing hard work was the unpinning of capitalism.

So the Protestant ethic leads to socialism? Who knew?
