I came to my cousins graduation ceremony to celebrate him and his peers...instead I just got a lecture about the picturesque Obama family walking across the White House lawn, his struggle to prove his birth right to be president and how global warming is or isn't a fact. Congratulations?

Eugene Robinson's commencement address at the UC graduation was among the worst I have ever heard. I guess you take the guy away from MSNBC but you cannot take MSNBC away from the guy. They are the people that need a lecture on diversity and tolerance. Horrible choice by UC and a horrible speech by a man who contributes to a network that does more to divide people than even FOX News.

Giving a commencement address pointing out the extreme stupidity of others seems perfectly reasonable.

A graduation commencement ceremony should not include political agenda shame on UC for trying to indoctrinate and politicizing an event like this

Since when is pointing out simple facts a political agenda? You must believe that facts have a liberal bias. Which come to think of it, clearly does.

I agree! Shame on Hutton and the leadership of Utica College for allowing this white-hating person to speak. It was a huge dissappointment. Hutton.......it's time to go!

Hutton.....thanks for the disappointing commencement speaker. He was terrible. You owe all the graduates an apology. These students only graduate once and you wrecked their special day. Please go away!

How dare that jerk proclaim the graduates "re-enforcements" for his twisted biased war against America.

He would receive an F if it were graded for his presentation. The "speech" was entirely a historical review of Obama's presidency but it was completely unorganized and he kept bouncing around the topics. He had a nervous, stumbling tone and spoke as if he was defending himself or trying to persuade the audience to his point of view.(Maybe that's because people were ignoring him or just got up and left.) Actually it was as if he was speaking from the top of his head! It didn't even come off as if he had rehearsed it or even written it down.

Why does this shock you? UC has an extremely liberal faculty to the point of they use their positions to preach their political views. Never mind teaching the subjects in a manner that welcomes opposing views. Most teach while making their political views very well known. It's OK to have the views, but it's another to impose it upon a captured audience. It is what it is.

It's so surprising how loud the liberals were leading up to the election, but how quiet they've become in the past few months.

"Since when is pointing out simple facts a political agenda? You must believe that facts have a liberal bias. Which come to think of it, clearly does."

Saying that the critics of the Obama administration cannot get past his race is not a fact. Claiming his interpretation of growing up in the South is more accurate than another man's is not a fact. If he were to offer some facts, he might have started with the four Americans killed in the U.S. consulate in Libya, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, and the Obama ad claiming Mit Romney was responsible for a man's death. Those facts are ignored by the crowd at MSNBC because they demonstrate the incompetence of the current administration. It is my opinion that President Obama does not work very hard at his job. I do not offer it as fact and I certainly would not use a commencement address to advance my personal views. A message about the challenges ahead and the pride of their accomplishments is more appropriate at a graduation. By the way, bias is not a concept related to whose facts are correct. It is what the media chooses to cover and how they present what they cover.

It is what you get when you allow the Academic side of the house at the College to control the entire graduation ceremony planning process. Of course like-minded people are selected to speak.

He was unprepared,rambled and assumed everyone in that auditorium was a racist. Two silver linings, he exposed himself as poor speaker, race baiter who is only in the business of keeping racism alive not moving forward. None of the students had there eyes riveted on this guy and bathrooms were filled with people who had heard enough. Second was his hate speech had no effect on the minorities who got their degrees. Families were overjoyed yelling and cheering loudly with the students smiling from ear to ear, happy as hell.

All these kids graduating are feeling on top of the world. Reality will set in quick when they go to look for jobs and find out a BA will only get you minimum wage.

The speech had no direction, theme or message. A bunch of racist crap.
I feel bad for the students and parents. What moron picked this guy without doing a background on him? Should be fired.
