    Re: Obama Will Speak at Commencement at Barnard College

    This is just another venting thread for an anti-obama potus who desperately wants underlying reasons/scandals for Obama's appreciation for women recently. My guess is your reasoning tells you he is starting a sex war, which in reality, The GOP has started this sex war. I am glad he is reinforcing his support in women's education. He needs to draw as much contrast between himself and the circus of clowns currently left in the GOP primary.

Will Pelosi be up in arms at not a single male speaker being present at a womens college commencement?
    Seems to me like you're the only one trying to create a gender war here. You'll notice that not one other person has made mention of gender issues.

    Upsurping? Let me guess, you hate Obama?

    Debora L. Spar, the president of Barnard, said she was thrilled that the president would deliver the keynote speech at the commencement on May 14.

    “This is just an extraordinary opportunity for the college, a moment in time that will be unforgettable for the graduates and their parents,” Ms. Spar said in an interview on Friday.

    In its announcement, the college said Mr. Obama, a 1983 graduate of Columbia University, would be awarded the Barnard Medal of Distinction, the college’s highest honor, at the commencement. Barnard is an independent liberal arts college for women; it is one of the four undergraduate schools of Columbia and enrolls about 2,400 students.

    Truth is, you just like to bitch about Obama. It's not Obama's fault the college made the decision to allow him to speak. When you graduate high school, you will learn this.
    He asked them to let him speak. He knew they weren't going to say no.

    If it mattered that much to the college, they would have said no. Yes, he knows it's political. He's running for re-election. It would be unrealistic to expect a person that's running for re-election to be apolitical.

    Is this all the GOP has on Obama? Criticizing the location where he gives speeches? Mad because he's taking advantage of a sex war the REPUBLICAN party created in an attempt to suppress women's access to healthcare? Think long and hard why the GOP is currently the underdog in the race for the presidency.

    I'm sure it will be a wonderful speech, and the kids will love it.

    Are you kidding me? These people would criticize Obama based on which brand of toilet paper he uses. If it turned out to be the same brand they use, they'd say it's just Obama using that toilet paper for political gain.

    The GOP and Obama haters should keep faith, maybe Obama will screw it up.

    Historically, some politicians in the middle of a presidential campaign have been less than deft in finding the right tone for addressing the graduates of women’s colleges. In 1955, Adlai E. Stevenson gave the commencement speech at Smith College, telling the women that their job should be to influence “man and boy” through the “humble role of housewife.”

    “It just went down as one of those bad moments,” Ms. Spar said.

    Oh, no! This certainly isn't all we have on Obama.
