It’s hard to believe that it has already been a year since President Obama’s last back-to-school speech — the one that got certain detractors in a tizzy about his purported plans to brainwash America’s youth with dangerous socialist messages.

This time around, his speech seemed to go over without incident, or at least without that kind of incident. Speaking in Philadelphia on Tuesday, the president advised students to stay on task with their “job” of going to school and keeping out of trouble, and he attempted to make himself more relatable by admitting, “I wasn’t always disciplined. I wasn’t always the best student when I was younger.” Presidents — they’re just like us! –KA
