What energy goals? All I ever hear them say is “Use less”, “reduce production”, “stop growing”, “live in caves”, etc. Not in so many words but that’s what it all comes down to.

The neo hitler communist nazi obama will continue to deceive the mush minded brown shirt communist children of Americas public school systems much as the national socialist (Nazi means national socialist, contrary to the lie liberals spin now) hitler did in the ten years prior to his hostile takeover of the german peoples children then.

Yes it is. The Blue and White wagons have circled around Dr. Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann. But, PSU is a state school, I.e., with PA now having a Rep. House, Senate, Governor, suboeonas and hearings into malfeasance are more likely.

Don’t count on it.....the UNIONS, American Socialists and American Communist party organizations, most academics, all government agencies and their UNIONS, Louis Farrakhan, CAIR and most Muslims organizations plus tons more folks with no American pride and on the government tit will put the community organizer back in office.

Current Events in the Middle East (Egypt - Jordan - Tunisia to a lesser degree) should prompt The President Of The United States to forward his Best Regards to Penn State and Regrets that Duties of his Office preclude his visiting that University AT THIS TIME.
I have NO PROBLEM with a later date being considered.

Airport there only handles smaller planes. I guess it's helicopter time. Don't forget the teleprompter.

Obama will definitely lose Ohio. There was a total state wide GOP sweep in 2010 and all offices are now solidly R, and mainly conservative (John Kasich is Governor - former budget expert in Congress and had his own TV show)

Sadly, you’re wrong. PSU is not the same institution I graduated from in 1965.

It is a Marxist regime disguised as an institution of higher learning. It’s been that way since at least the early 1970s. Home of PC and Climategate.

I was ROTC at PSU. Upon graduation I went on Active Duty for almost 5 years. Served two years in Germany and two years in Thailand.

I remember returning for a Homecoming around 1973 and visiting the “School of Communications” (aka journalism). I bumped into the Dean who, in a British accent, asked me what I did upon graduation. I started to tell him about going on active duty. He interrupted me saying “fuck you” and walked away.

Last Spring my wife and I attended our 45th PSU reunion. We were visiting all our old haunts on campus and went into the Student Union Building. Damned if there wasn’t a blind Muslim with his Koran entertaining (read recruiting) several black students) right outside the entrance door. I hovered to hear what he was saying. Hard to understand much because he was speaking barely above a whisper. But I caught the word “Infidel” several times.

So PSU has been a Marxist hotbed for many years. The Usurping Marxist Onada is in friendly territory at the Marxist University.

Groundhog Day storm is set to hit Pennsylvania and the Northeast on Wednesday...it is evidently a very powerful one. Remember—the guy at Penn State was a major player in the email scandal that hit the global warming crowd. It truly would be justice if a giant snow storm keeps the Bamster away.

Just what we need, more ‘green jobs’ and windmills to counter the conflagration in the ME. I’m sure the country will be relieved to hear his message.

The Islamo dirtbag must smell a scientific breakthrough coming from Penn State, and he needs to take credit for being the inspiration.

This guy is pure Islamo Communist Scum.

I’m happy you’ve finally seen the light. I haven’t given the school a dime for years.

The only reason it never ousted ROTC, unlike some or all of the Ivy League schools, is US Defense Dept. research dollars.

We know PSU has corrupted education, humanities and science global warming) with Marxist dogma. How about engineering? Are there any PSU engineering grads who can offer some insight here?

My kids go to PSU and I have spent much time on campus. You have always had the leftist recruiters on college campuses, the religous zealots (I can remember them standing outside the Forum yelling ‘Fornicators’ at all the students walking by).

The student body at PSU has a strong Young Republicans Club and other more conservative organizations. Obama is only trying to engender PA votes and this will not work.

I do believe the 2012 race will be difficult to win for our side due to teh corruption and voter intimidation that will take place (legally thanks to Eric Holder). We MUST be prepared to fight equally as hard for our side, meet and defeat this administration at every spot. They fear the Tea Party because it is a voice for the silent masses that work every day supporting this country.

I don’t think Murtha Airport in JTown can handle AFWon either. So it would be quite the sojourn, in snow, to get to Happy Valley. Hopefully he will cancel...and Wed IS Ground Hog Day. Appropriate, ne c’est pas that iconic symbol, with no real value or base in reality, would dominate PA news mid week...but enough about Dear Leader. I wonder if Phil will see his Shadow?

FYI, Pennsylvania is one of the TEN states now mandating Official Certification of Eligibility for POTUS and VPOTUS in 2012. PAs House, Senate and Governor...all Rs. We are no longer a slam dunk for Duh Won. He WILL have to qualify to be placed upon the ballot.

"The United States already gets about 40 percent of its electricity from alternative sources, such as wind, solar, hydro-power and clean coal, Chu said"

Huh??? I guess he "forgot" nuclear. If you exclude nuclear and coal from the list, the percentage is approximately zero. Given that the greenies want to tear out the dams, and eliminate all coal entirely, the number truly is zero when nuclear is also excluded.

Too bad he's not visiting the State Pen.

There's an old Rocky & Bullwinkle episode where Boris Badenov comments on the same.

Q. Where did you go to school, Penn State?

A. Naaah, State Pen!

Cheers!

I am currently in the College Republicans at PSU and many of my classmates in the group with me are actually true Conservatives. We also have College Libertarians and Young Americans for Freedom-—another Conservative group. There is a Conservative voice here. In the college newspaper, an opinion columnist (and “journalist” major) bashed the GOP response the other day to the SOTU while providing no facts or examples. I typed a response to the editor pointing out the columnist’s incompetence and blind liberalism. and it got published and people were glad I got my view out there. There are Conservative voices here.
