Obama and McCain events at Xavier Thursday

Xavier Unity's College Democrats and the Students for Obama organization are hosting an event Thursday featuring a rapper and a movie actor, while the College Republicans plan to follow with a rally outside Cintas Center before the Xavier-Duquesne game.

Rapper Nick Cannon and actor Kal Penn (of "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle") are touring Ohio college campuses for the Barack Obama campaign. They bring the show to Xavier's Gallagher Student Center Theater at 4:45 p.m. Thursday. Doors open at 4:15 p.m. All are welcome.

Not to be outdone, the College Republicans are staging a rally at 6 p.m. outside Cintas Center to show support for the presumptive Republican nominee, John McCain.

The rapper Cannon and the actor Penn will also do an Obama rally at the University of Cincinnati’s Zimmer Auditorium at 3 p.m. Thursday.

It's amazing how folks who do their homework line up to support Obama.

For those that don't think he's all that and a bag of donuts.. go see his site. He has experience. He has know how. He gets bills passed and he unites people!

Unlike the Clintons or McCain he was dirt poor growing up and had to deal with the stigma of being racially mixed. If you are under 40 you have no idea how that was in the 60s and 70s!

Then he became a community organizer and later a lawyer. He didn't even pay off his student loans until he got an advance on his first book (I think that was 2004?). Now he's worth 1.2 million I think they said.. oh, the clintons are worth AT LEAST 15 million!

Yes, people who do their homework... like a rapper and an actor. Right.

People who do their homework find out he's a divider and not the uniter he claims he is. Not only is he tied to a stigma that has more to do with a past which is, thankfully, no longer a reality, but he brings that into our current world though his pastor and mentor of 20 years.

He not only doesn't stand up to pressure, but he also is the most liberal man in the senate, not to mention being the candidate with the least possible experience. He is not a man who can bring this country together.

By the way, John McCain actually went to Xavier to speak, but I'm sure that isn't as important...
