I’m sure y’all remember when the Obama campaign refused to pay for an upcoming visit in Durham, New Hampshire? And when the Democratic National Committee refused to reimburse Westport, Connecticut for an Obama campaign visit? Well, it sounds like some people are starting to catch on:
A University of Virginia spokeswoman says President Barack Obama will not be at the university when he comes to Charlottesville on Wednesday. In a statement released Friday, it was confirmed that the university declined the president’s request to speak at UVA.
UVA says the Obama campaign requested the use of one of two outdoor venues - the Amphitheater or the Harrison-Small Library plaza. The university declined the request for a number of reasons including class cancellations, which UVA estimates could be more than 186 classes on the second day of school. The other main reason is they would have to take on the full cost of security, and because of university policy and their federal and state tax exempt status, they would have to offer the same opportunity to the other candidate so as not to show favor for either candidate.
Sounds to me like they have caught on to the financial drain these leeches are on everyone. Now the campaign is scrambling for a venue that is “academic” enough for the Prez.
Might I suggest any preschool?
