On what would normally be one of the best days of their lives, these poor kids had to sit through a speech best left for a partisan audience somewhere on the campaign trail.
“If there’s one certainty about the decade ahead, it’s that things will be uncertain,” Obama told more than 10,000 newly minted Buckeye graduates.
We pay for someone to pen this dreck.
Obama, who ran for president in 2008 on the theme of change, also asked students to support improvements to society that in many ways mirror his legislative agenda.
Among his items: Repair the middle class, educate more children at a younger age, improve high schools, make college more affordable, build better roads and airports and a faster Internet, promote research and technology, confront climate change and “protect more of our kids from the horrors of gun violence.”
Climate change? A faster Internet? Really visionary stuff there, champ. Then this pap from the most divisive president in American history.
“We’ve seen the petty divisions of color and class and creed replaced by a united urge to help each other,” Obama said.
Let us know when that happens.
