President Obama's plan for an inspirational back-to-school message was initially attacked by some conservatives as a recipe for socialist indoctrination. Today's speech, at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia, stressed responsibility, both to oneself and to one's country. "The story of America isn't about people who quit when things got tough. It's about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best."
