    They said they were okay with it because he gave some lame ass excuse that all Presidential speeches are given in front of a blue clothes with flags.

    that's reaching, i guess it's more fulfilling to pretend he's an evil athiest out to destroy christianity by covering it up with bunting.

    Or even the actual surroundings; Bush had entire sets... all theatrics.

    Did Obama ask if he could speak there or was he invited? He was probably invited.

    If they didn't want to cover it up, they definitely shouldn't have.
    Honestly I think it's weird that a Catholic school would cover up all their statues, etc.
    But I guess most pres. do give speeches with the Amerrrrican flag and stuff.
    I just read the DNC dude was asying they didn't request that but yada yada yada. Ah. Who knows.

    Sweetie was right - it was lame. He was an invited guest - this is a university that regularly has notable politicians speak. Why should they have to hide their values and traditions? It's overkill and was not necessary.

    “The White House wanted a simple backdrop of flags and pipe and drape for the speech, consistent with what they’ve done for other policy speeches,”

    The White House is not being consistent. President Clinton (class of 68) didn't request this, nor did any other visiting President, Head of State, King, Queen etc.

    As I mentioned, Georgetown, Boston College, and some of the other Jesuit schools are trying to grapple with this. The Jesuits have a proud tradition of rigorous education (along with the occasional pederasty) and they want to attract a wide range of students. They want to raise their profile and they don't want to be niched with Oral Roberts University type places. I think they are trying now to make sure that non-Catholics are comfortable there.

    Still, my daughter and my niece both went on college tours at Georgetown and said they were creeped out by the crucifixes everywhere. My response--so don't go.

    they didn't have to. They agreed to do it.

    A big mistake on their part also. Where is their backbone??

    Again, Obama did not need to do this. Here is another example - King Abdullah (Jordan), a practicing Muslim, accepted his honorary doctorate at Georgetown recently. Absolutely no Christian symbols were covered due to royal protocol. Nobody batted an eyelid and nobody was offended. Case in point.

    King Abdullah isn't the elected leader of the US. The issue is totally academic. Obama asked, they said sure, whynot.

    If they had a problem with it, they wouldn't have. I'm sure jesus isn't smothering under some flags.

    Something else for the religious nutjobs to bitch about. The socialist Muslim covered up Jesus.

    This is stupid. Why would the president's team choose a catholic venue? And shame on Georgetown for covering up on request.
