Arizona State University declines to give Obama honorary degree because of "Lack of Experience"

Arizona State University has determined President Barack Obama lacks the experience to receive a honorary degree when he speaks at their commencement. He also lacks the experience to be President. Barack Obama was the junior Senator from Illinois when he was elected. His main experience was as a"community organizer." How did over half of the voters who went to the poll make this poor decision? The primary reason was the "hype" from the Main Stream Media. Barack Obama's name or face was on the cover of Time Magazine 48% of the time in 2008. He face was on the cover of Newsweek 25% of 2008. Buyers remorse is beginning to set in. President Obama is still popular with Democrats, but he now has the highest divisiveness numbers ever recorded. Here is the degree story via
ASU Stiffs Obama, Claims Too Inexperienced For Honorary Degree

TEMPE, ARIZONA - Universities typically confer an honorary degree on commencement speakers, particularly those who have reached the pinnacle of their career or achieved the top of their field. Arizona State University (ASU), though, says it will not confer an honorary degree on this year's commencement speaker, President Barack Obama, because "his body of work is yet to come."

ASU Media Relations Director Sharon Keeler says, unlike other universities, the processes for selecting commencement speakers and honorary degree recipients are independent. She says that honorary degrees are given "for an achievement of eminence" and that Obama was not considered for an honorary degree because his body of achievements, at this time, does not fit within that criteria.
