UC Irvine Republicans Mock President Barack Obama's Commencement Speech

Categories: Politics

YALUCImock.jpg
Hundreds of UC Irvine graduates sent Twitter messages today in joyous celebration of President Barack Obama's commencement address held today at Angel Stadium in Anaheim with nearly 31,000 attendees.

For example, one person--representative of many--wrote, "What an honor to have the president speak at my graduation."

Another graduate wrote, "POTUS is pretty awesome!"

But not all UCI students are delighted with the president and his policies.

The university's libertarian Young Americans for Liberty group created a mock Obama "program schedule" for today's historic event.

Here's a copy of their posting:

The college group also mocked Obama by writing a message to today's graduates:

With the president leaving Orange County this afternoon to return on Air Force One to Palm Springs for golf, our Southern California coastal region resumes the old "Reagan Country" mold with local Republicans celebrating Flag Day at an event featuring U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) in the Hotel Irvine tonight.

Boy, this article sure did attract a lot of butt-hurt tea-tard losers who still can't face the fact that they lost the last two elections ... probably most of them have never even set foot on the UCI campus (or any other college campus for that matter,) but they still feel compelled to show up here and whine and mewl about UCI's commencement speaker anyway.

And yeah, Earleen, keep trying to repeal the ACA. I'm sure the 60th time's the charm.

Is that your answer? The ACA? The ACA is an exchange of PRIVATE insurance companies. To say the ACA is socialism means you either don't know what the ACA is, or you don't know what socialism is. For you, I'm guessing it's both.

Does Michelle know that you sleep with the president every night?

They forgot to include Barry's castration of the Border Patrol, encouragement of illegal immigration, and deep hatred for white Americans and their culture.  Other than that, pretty damn accurate.  Down with BarebACK.

You can't expect all students to agree. They can still bitch and moan. It's their right as Americans. Even as dumb Americans. Let the returdlican students whine. As long as Bushie is no longer in charge, we are improving all the time from that 8 year disaster. Thank you for speaking to the UCI grads, and getting us out of the Bush recession, Mr. President.

You can't compare parties today to what they were in the 1800s... it's pretty well known that dems and repubs pretty much swapped views between the civil war and the Great Depression. You can look THAT up, Brandon.

Dear UC Irvine Students,

Whatever your parents and grandparents pay for hot water, heating, cooling, keeping the lights on, charging the laptop, iphones and electric cars , you will pay lots more! .

Why? Ask your graduation speaker. His environmental wonks are going to shut down all the country's  power plants which generate the least expensive, lowest priced wattage. Plus our grid will be unreliable after we tear down the older coal plants which only fire up when it is really hot (August) or really cold (January). 

Plus the capital costs for Obama's plans will fall into your lap. Compare this to  paying the price of a  top-line Merecedes -Benz while getting a beat-up bicycle in return.

Your higher energy costs will also be reflected in the cost of operating a business.   US businesses who can relocate to lower energy countries will do so or go bankrupt.  Bye bye.

So cheer away. You are cheering for energy poverty.  This will lead to your financial funeral. 

The political class is R-I-C-H. Their policies will make you P-O-O-R.

While some Republicans are libertarian, not all Libertarians are Republican. Get it right, OC Weekly.

The global temperature hasn't changed in 17 years, yet Obiwan tells the UCI students that dissenting opinions on global warming must be stifled. It's never to early to create the next class of apparatchiks to rule them all.


Describing lawmakers and pundits who deny manmade climate change as a “fairly serious threat to everybody’s future,” President Obama on Saturday called for less debate and more action in combatting warming trends.


President Obama says that the current level of 400 PPM CO2 causes asthma. Had he ever taken a science class instead of dictating smoke breatholding standards to the Choom Gang, he would have known that humans exhale 40,000 PPM CO2 from their lungs.

The sooner we all realize that Barack Obama's goal was never actually to govern the United States as President, but to transform it, the better off you'll be. To Obama, the presidency is ideological, not political. It is a means to an end and that's all it is. He couldn't care less what political legacy he leaves behind. What Obama wants is a legacy that speaks of the social transformation of America from Christianity and capitalism to godless humanism and socialism. And he is simply leveraging the power and means of his office to bring this to fruition. Every word that is written in his book 'Dreams From My Father' he meant. Every word. From a young boy Obama was groomed to hate "Colonialist America" and his hatred of this nation is quite evident today. Wake up liberals! These Democrats are not our grandparents and JFK's party!

i personally think the pink hair is awesome but even though I like Barak as a person, he is not a great president.

Isn't it ironic that the naive ones who voted for him are most suffering the consequences of big liberalism (sky high tuition & loans) and obamanomics (inability to get a job). Oh to still be young and foolish. :-)

@Smedley_Butler 

These are the same folks who have the gall to say Obama is the "Worst President Ever". Seriously? Compared to the last guy in office? I'm not in love with our current president but saying he's the "worst" is really stretching it...

From their actions, both parties today pretty much have the same views, including more taxes, more spending, higher National Debt, bigger government, amnasty for criminal illegals and less personal freedom for individuals.  You can't tell Democrats from Republicans in Congress without a program.  Just remember Skyler, your grand children will have to work all their lives to pay off the debt these jokers have run up, assuming the country doesn't go bankrupt before that.
