Students Asked for "Citizen Status" Before Obama Commencment.

Obama is set to give a commencment speech at Kalamazoo High School in the upcoming weeks. After the commencement he will shake the hands of all the seniors. The White House is taking all necessary precautions by making all seniors to provide their birthdates, Social Security numbers and citizen status to the Secret Service so background checks could be performed. Such a check is required for anyone who gets within an arm’s length of the president, students were told at their senior breakfast Friday.

 In light of what is going on in Arizona right now, this is kind of a bone head move on the part of the White House and Obama. Everyone sees the hypocrisy here. It was reported on the Drudge Report for crying out loud. Geez.

It is the Secret Service, not Obama, who are asking for proof. This rule was in effect for years. And, if someone does not want to shake Obama's had, she or he does not have to supply the information.
