Separation of Church and State?

Doesn't it seem particularly unfortunate that a speech, by the President, intended to be broadcast and recorded in schools, where teachers are strictly forbidden from appearing to endorse a particular deity or denomination, ends with "God bless you. God Bless America"?

Surely, someone must have told him that was an unconstitutional endorsement of religion by the government?
