    Obama Will Speak at Commencement at Barnard College

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/04/us...tion.html?_r=1

    An Obama administration official confirmed on Friday that the White House had called Barnard to offer the president as the commencement speaker.

    A month ago, Barnard College announced that Jill Abramson, the executive editor of The New York Times, would be its graduation speaker, but those plans changed with the call from the White House. Ms. Spar said that Ms. Abramson had said she would be happy to speak at Barnard in the future.

    The college’s last three commencement speakers were Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, the actress Meryl Streep and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
    There is so many things wrong here. The president usurping a college graduation to make a political campaign speech. A man pushing a woman to the side. Shouldnt women be upset at this? Shouldnt voters be upset at the abuse of position?

    Why? It's the colleges decision to allow or disallow Obama to speak there. Or do you not believe in freedom anymore?

    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.

    Baiting, how....normal for you.

    I would think that his speech would be pretty apolitical, but its not something Ive come to expect from this President.

    It seems pretty obvious that Obama specifically wants to take advatage of the gender war being waged on republicans by giving a speech which will no doubt comdemn anyone he claims doesnt support 'womens health issues' (ie republicans).

    There is no gender war and you have no clue as to what his speech will be. My guess will be it will be a normal graduation speech.

    So, willing to wager on what his speech will be. I got the money to back it up my guess, do you?

    Im not interested in your personal games. Im here to debate. As to the substance of your post, its obvious the democrats are pursuing a gender war, in addition to race and class wars. Since Obamas contraception mandate, and republicans oppostion to it, numerous democrat leaders have made speeches pitting men against women, and even women against 'old white men', combining race and gender.

    What college wouldn't jump at the chance to have the president of the United States speak at their commencement?

    and why wouldn't the president want a chance to make yet another speech with an election coming up?

    It sounds like a win win for both the college and the POTUS to me.
