Skip to comments.Michelle Obama to speak at Virginia Tech graduation
Posted on 03/29/2012 9:25:09 PM PDT by Perseverando
Michelle Obama will address Virginia Tech graduates at the 2012 commencement ceremony on May 11 at Lane Stadium.
Mrs. Obama joins U.S. Sen. Mark Warner as commencement speaker. Both will deliver commencement addresses.
This is the first time a first lady has addressed a Virginia Tech commencement, according to Tech's morning news release.
Mrs. Obama will speak at three college graduation ceremonies this spring, including two in key general election battleground states.
Her first commencement address will be at Tech. The White House says the first lady has been inspired by the school's resiliency following the deadly 2007 campus shootings. Mrs. Obama will also speak at North Carolina A&T, a historically black university.
Virginia and North Carolina are both politically important states that will be crucial to President Barack Obama's reelection prospects.
Mrs. Obama will also deliver the commencement address at Oregon State University, which has been recognized for its efforts to promote healthy communities, a key priority of the first lady. Mrs. Obama's brother, Craig Robinson, is the coach of the school's men's basketball team.
Travyon Martin will be the highlight of her message.
Just sorta jumped out at me. Carry on.
It’s not VD, it’s VT. Oh, wait....
well at least the kids will get good chow...probably ribs and cupcakes at least ;-)
Oh here we go with the full court propaganda!
Get ready for the 2nd amendment crack down.
I just can’t resist saying it: Virginia Tech graduates will listen to Zer0’s Stepford wife.
And I would say to please send me my diploma in the mail. I will not be attending.
An invocation on vacations.
...haven’t they suffered enough?
One wonders, will any of these bright young baccalaureates organize the community of graduates into an alternative graduation site and ceremony?
Seung-Hui Cho was another of them evil whites.
The scenario is being set.
After blaming whites for Trayvon, Obama will now say this is not about race, It’s about guns.
We gotta ban em. /s
Those kids are all graduating with useable, constructive, REAL degrees.
What could an affirmative action, Communist shyster, who has ascended to her lofty position via the successful playing of race politics by the pathological Left, possibly have to say to them?
Evidently she called them, they didn't call her. Thank goodness the relatives I have at VT won't be graduating this year.
No thanks. I’d take 4H at the pig pen first.
Or will she talk about her Affirmative action education that prevented
a smarter white student with better grades from entering the same college.
Or will she tell everyone to become service workers and trash haulers because
it will make them feeeel better about helping others.
Subject of speech to be care and feeding of Pit Bulls and financial rewards that can be attained in that. endeavor. Majoring in Animal Thuggery.
I guess it’s tough getting good speakers these days.
As long as she gets the **** out of Las Vegas. That family made my life hell twice in the last 2 weeks. Typing my accounts of trying to get through town and the number of near accidents because of messed up traffic would take way too much time to type- already had to do it once today for my out of town husband. What happened to You can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer’s dime? My day was utter hell in my car. Soooo not feeling the love.

That they are going to have to share their "wealth" with other graduates, such as those from Radford who will never make as much, if anything.
Will she wear a FUBU Hoodie? :)
Amazing coincidence that Virginia just happens to be a swing state...good opportunity for a FREEP/Protest....
What happens if you turn and face away from her? Do they withhold your degree? Have the SS arrest you for disrespecting the Empress?
