Perhaps he'll explain why the new grads face a bleak employment outlook along with rising taxes and costs of living, particularly healthcare.

Extremely happy that I am not attending it. For starters, it will be a security nightmare. With so many do-gooders in the world, I don't understand the choosing of politicians - especially this one.

Whether you like him or not, it would be cool to say the POTUS gave the commencement speech at your graduation. I do agree fricking security nightmare to receive your diploma. It's a long enough day with out that BS. Also agree there are many inspiring people out there to give a message of hope and change...

Well then, since campus is a weapon free zone, no doubt obama will feel comfortable with his security detail leaving their weapons at home...LOL

After all, it is a weapon free zone. Why worry eh?

Re the administration's self defense video suggesting the use of scissors for self protection, I have no problem with obama's security detail carrying scissors if they feel the need......

Advance copies of obama's speech have his demanding the grads sh^t in bank lobbies, department stores, and police stations if they want their student loans forgiven. He's planning on leading screaming chants of "Stick it to whitey. Stick it to whitey. Make those MFers pay!"

Who was the last President to give a commencement speech at OSU? Clinton I think.

You have to admit, there are a lot of perks in being the "swing city" in a "swing state".

Read the articles for your answer.
Routinely bringing Ohio traffic to a standstill for Dear Leader is not what I consider a "perk."

43 was here quite a bit, if memory serves. I was over at the Wolske and Blue building on Election Day 2004 when he came here to thank everybody at campaign HQ.

Don't tell me our swing state status doesn't result in more goodies from the feds. I know that philosophically this is a bad thing, but until the system changes, I'll take it.

It's good to keep all of them on their toes. Sure beats being Seattle, Hartford or Birmingham.

Not sure...my computer acting like molasses today, so not looking it up. I still stand by my statement of it would be cool, regardless of political affiliation, to say I was there. I've told this story before; went to see Jesse Jackson when he ran for President in 1988, not because I planned on voting for him, but to say, I was there. Interesting experience which builds character.

"Goodies from the feds"?

Those are my hard-earned dollars being confiscated and circulated for political pandering.

No thanks now...or ever.

If you says so.
My commencement speaker was William F. Buckley. He beats 20 Obamas.

Don't agree. As long as they're passing out goodies, if you don't take them somebody else will. You're stupid not to take them.

As to whether they should be handing those goodies out in the first place, I strongly do agree with you.

Again, that's the system we have. Stand on principle too much and you get screwed.
