Obama Won’t Receive ASU (Arizona State) Honorary Degree-(Too Inexperienced To Qualify!)
ASU Web Devil ^ | 8 April 2009 | Adam Sneed

ASU will not award President Barack Obama an honorary degree when he speaks at the commencement ceremony on May 13.

University spokeswoman Sharon Keeler said Tuesday that the University awards honorary degrees to recognize individuals for their work and accomplishments spanning their lifetime.

“Because President Obama’s body of work is yet to come, it’s inappropriate to recognize him at this time,” Keeler said.

Previous recipients of honorary degrees from ASU had long-established careers in their fields of work, Keeler said, and they aren’t necessarily affiliated with ASU.

President Michael Crow told the committee that significant contributions to education and society over the course of a person’s career merit consideration for an honorary degree, Patterson said.

“We’re looking for people who have made great accomplishments,” he said. “It’s a recognition to true contribution to society.”

So award that crappy Honorary Degree to his teleprompter. It’s got more experience than he’ll ever get.

“Because President Obama’s body of work is yet to come, it’s inappropriate to recognize him at this time.”...I beg to differ; we know his body of work and what he stands for and where he’s headed...however, I applaud ASU.

Yeah, but it’s okay to vote for him to lead the country.

History will look back on Obamas Timeline as the ultimate culmination of lies, deceit, bribery and unearned accolades. A nobody with nothing.

I’m astounded as well. There still people who are thinking in this world, and looking for real achievement, not just flash.

I’m sure he’ll be more than happy with the degree from Notre Dame.

Thats a good one, we must insure that the proper history is reported, we would not want to be on the wrong side of history, right?

I saw Wolf Blitzer whinning about this earlier this evening.

Yesterday, Wolf Blitzer said the he (wolf) was going to receive an honorary degree from St. Bonaventure Catholic College in NYS. Apparently, the Catholic colleges now love abortionists. I watched them for years catering to Hitlery. It is sickening. I am fairly sure that Wolf supports abortion but I am not sure. If I am wrong, I am sorry. He seems like a nice enough guy otherwise.

True: “Buffalo native Wolf Blitzer, who will anchor CNN’s Election Night coverage this evening, will be St. Bonaventure University’s Commencement speaker when the class of 2009 graduates on May 17.” from the Bonnies website

I guess being George Soros’s lackey doesn't qualify as enough experience.

I thought “communty organizing” was considered (by many) to be enough experience to qualify him for POTUS.

Take note, Notre Dame. You are planning to ignore his baby-killing and give him an honorary law degree for his accomplishments.

What accomplishments? He has done hardly any legal work, apart from suing a few banks for not making enough subprime loans. He worked ten years as an instructor at Chicago Circle, and never wrote a single scholarly article. Earlier, he was made head of the Harvard Law Review and never did a single article in that job either.

The man has done NOTHING, apart from doing everything he could to kill babies.

The honorary degree is also for “integrity”.Like lying about never hearing Rev. Wright’s rants and the bow? And how many other things?
How about exposing the divorce records of his two competitors in the Senate Race?How about saying no one on his staff had any contact with Blago about his seat?
Give me one example of his integrity and I will shut my mouth.

You’re forgetting all the millions he helped squander while on the Chicago Anneberg project.

One of the few intelligent things that I’ve heard coming out of academia in a long time.

Good thing. I was planning on wiping my butt with my diploma if they gave Odumbo a degree.

Isn’t that too funny? Too inexperienced for them but not for us? Incredible. What DID we get stuck with?
