Barack Obama was visiting a primary school and he visited
one of the classes. They were in the middle of a discussion
related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the
president if he would like to lead the discussion on the
word 'tragedy.' So our illustrious president asked
the class for an example of a 'tragedy.'




One little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best
friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a
tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a
tragedy.'

'No,' said Obama, 'that would be an
accident.'

A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus
carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone
inside, that would be a tragedy.

I'm afraid not,' explained Obama. 'That's
what we would call great loss.'

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Obama
searched the room. 'Isn't there some

one here who can
give me an example of a tragedy?'

Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnnie raised his
hand. In a quiet voice he said: 'If the plane carrying
you and Mrs. Obama was struck by a 'friendly fire'
missile and blown to smithereens that would be a
tragedy.'

'Fantastic!' exclaimed Obama. 'That's
right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?'




'Well,' says the boy, 'It has to be a tragedy,
because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss...and it
probably wouldn't be an accident either.'

Probably.

In fact it would be done a little more skillfully, and we'd be caught sleeping even more than we have been. In that way, this regime is a Godsend.

That is such an important statement. The Conservative label affixed to Bush by the media was laughable.
