My commencement speaker was William F. Buckley. He beats 20 Obamas.
Clinton wasn't President when he spoke, but I do think he spoke here.

Columbus is effectively the ethnic Catholic vote (I know it's not a Catholic community). They can't take us for granted because we see through their BS. We are up for grabs and I like it that way, except when it comes to being bombarded with TV commercials.

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.
Sorry, but I'll stick to the old adage, "You gotta stand for something...or you'll fall for anything."

I'm more of a when in Rome do as the Romans do kind of guy.

You do things your way, then Dayton gets the DCSC, Springfield gets the VA Hospital and Zanesville gets I-670. The reality is that they're going to pass things around and if you don't take it, Dayton or Cincinnati or Charlotte will.

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...
OSU isn't cheap. I would be extremely disappointed if a child of mine was graduating to the tune of a POTUS (any POTUS) who wanted to teach the world how to screw people over.

"While proponents say new record-keeping technologies will one day reduce costs and improve care, profits and sales are soaring now across the records industry. At Allscripts, annual sales have more than doubled from $548 million in 2009 to an estimated $1.44 billion last year, partly reflecting daring acquisitions made on the bet that the legislation would be a boon for the industry. At the Cerner Corporation of Kansas City, Mo., sales rose 60 percent during that period. With money pouring in, top executives are enjoying Wall Street-style paydays.

None of that would have happened without the health records legislation that was included in the 2009 economic stimulus bill and the lobbying that helped produce it. Along the way, the records industry made hundreds of thousands of dollars of political contributions to both Democrats and Republicans. In some cases, the ties went deeper. Glen E. Tullman, until recently the chief executive of Allscripts, was health technology adviser to the 2008 Obama campaign. As C.E.O. of Allscripts, he visited the White House no fewer than seven times after President Obama took office in 2009, according to White House records."
