>>> 6 high schools vie to win Obama at commencement

Can we change to “6 high schools vie to win Obama”? And once they win the big prize, there’d be no return, and no refund.

So, how does it work? They compete, and the loser has to take him?

Simple: the school that contributes the most to his 2012 re-election campaign will win.

If Obama had been prez when I graduated, I would have had them mail my diploma. I can’t stand the sight or sound of that POS.

Are they vying to get him to do the commencement or to ensure he doesn’t do the commencement?

The school my kids attend already won. They didn’t apply. I feel sorry for the parents whose children’s graduation will be marred by this anti-American communist’s presence.

That’s my guess!

I’m so very happy that none of my kids will have to be exposed to Present Stroker and his TelePrompter.

Don’t rule out the CAPA high school in Pittsburgh which has a large number of gay students

I'm betting on Bridgeport, WA.

From the link:

Ninety percent of the students are Hispanic and all receive free and reduced lunch.

Out of the 7 that actually asked for the "honor"?

(OK, it's more than 7, but way below the 1,000 schools that applied last year.)

MY first thought was and still is, if my kid was graduating and he would be the speaker- I would opt out totally. That is why the USPS sells stamps-

Course with my attitude these days,I would likely be homeschooling.

The risk of inviting Obama for a commencement speech is that Biden might come instead.

Which is most important to reelection?

CA, NJ and WA are "givens" for his reelection, PA probably too. DNC '12 is in NC. TN went McCain in '08.

If they actually do want him to show up, I would advise the “winning” school (I use the word loosely) not to ask Obama to bring *his* high school diploma with him.

No doubt: It will be the one in NC or PA or both.

Seems I heard Rush talking a couple of weeks ago about how there were so few colleges asking for BamBam to speak at commencement, they (the WH? or whoever is in charge of this event) had to keep extending the deadline, encouraging more schools to ask.

I guess the high school kids are still stupid enough to listen to him...?

I hope the bastard stays out of the south. We don’t need another speech from a democrat pushing slavery.
