I just listened to John King interview a graduate that is Boycotting Commencement because of Barack Obama. But, her reasons aren't (IMO) accurate.
She said that it's not right for Barack Obama to use commencement as a time to talk about abortion rights. She would be open to a town hall style meeting where there could be a back and forth discussion rather than just having to listen to him.
Barack Obama was asked to deliver a commencement speech. Peroid. End of story. EVERYONE else has made this about abortion... so much so that he'll actually likely have to address it in his COMMENCEMENT speech.
It's so crazy. I absolutely agree with their right to be pro-life. That's not even a question. It is after all a Catholic School. But, how do they justify asking Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush when they are pro death penalty? Just seems hypocritical to me.
