CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama was forced to find another venue for a Virginia campaign event next week after the University of Virginia declined a request to use the campus.

University officials had said Friday that they had met with the campaign about using one of its outdoor venues on Wednesday.

Of course, we do allow comedy acts on campus so we will allow Joe Biden to appear.”

The Obama campaign needs to be more creative.

Just as Grigori Potëmkin had his beautiful and impressive fake villages, so the Obama campaign could have fake crowds. They could make imaginative use of cardboard cutouts of people (thousands of them - moved from campaign stop to campaign stop) and possibly green screens and some movie magic from his Hollywood friends.

Added bonus: it was Thomas Jefferson's University that told Obama to go pound sand.

” - - - If he’s lost academia, what’s left?”

EVERYTHING is “Left” to Obama.

It has to be so there is no “Right,” and thus no “Wrong.”

Didn’t Thomas Jefferson design a lot of that campus? It would stand to reason that Obama would not find a welcoming crowd.

Oh yeah, I hadn’t thought of them. They would be great cast in the roles of victims of Romney’s corporate greed and indifference.

He’s trying to get the young vote back by appearing on a college campus and showing his shuck and jive. Note to Obama: The youth are sick and fed up with you. I would be too if I had just gotten my college degree and there were no jobs to be found anywhere.

What better way to show the importance of education than by forcing the cancellation of 186 classes and otherwise disrupting Grounds on the second day of the semester.

Wah-Hoo-Wah!

He doesn’t need a university setting...can’t he just set up

DAMN! That’s like being rebuked by the DNC.

Actually traffic control is the big problem. But if this was 2008, they would have begged him to come. Now, sorry, everything is being cleaned that day.
When Michelle came to Virginia Tech this year, they drove her up from Roanoke. They shut down the local road just for the motorcade only. Same with Biden. And they let Biden wander the Drillfield.

I don't think the Emperor has lost academia.

The University rejected the request, IMHO, because if they had accepted it they would have to also give Mitt a venue. Since the university accepts Federal Money they are required to provide equal time for both parties.

It would be very embarrassing if the Emperor's venue pulled in a few hundred and Mitt's venue pulled in a few thousand.
