Slowly the US is finding its head — and at the right time.

They didn’t want to be used as a campaign prop.

This has to be a first: the first time in Obama's political career that a major university has made Obama persona non grata
on its campus!
In fact, I don't recall the last time any state university has "dissed" any sitting president like this.
Congratulations to the University of Virginia for having the guts to put educating its students ahead of political showmanship.
One wonders just how much pressure The Won will bring to bear...

VA voted for Hussein in ‘08. What’s this, buyer’s remorse?

Whats this, buyers remorse?
No, it's called their pocketbook. They would have had to foot the bill for extra security, and they would have to do it for any other candidate wishing to visit.
Hussein also has a habit of not paying his bills at campaign stops.
