    LOLZ.

    The White House has extended the deadline to the contest for which a high school will win Obama speaking at its graduation ceremony. Only 14 have applied.

    The kids are smarter than we thought.

    he White House is ramping up an effort to promote a nationwide competition to decide which high school wins a commencement speech by President Obama.

    An internal White House memo indicates that the White House is facing a shortage of applications less than a week before the deadline.

    The competition was extended from the February 25 deadline until Friday, March 11 after few schools met the original application deadline. CBS News has learned a White House Communications Office internal memo dated February 22 noted "a major issue with the Commencement Challenge."

    "As of yesterday we had received 14 applications and the deadline is Friday," the memo said. The memo also urged recipients to, "please keep the application number close hold."

    A follow-up memo on February 28 reported receipt of 68 applications. Noting the competition among more than 1,000 schools last year, the memo said, "Something isn't working." It called on staffers to ask "friendly congressional, gubernatorial and mayoral offices" to encourage schools to apply. ...

    I'm thinking that the Youth Vote is not going to be quite so enthusiastic for The One in 2012. It might have something to do with the @ 25% unemployment rate among teens combined with their incredibly low participation rate (in the low 30%s).

    When the final report comes out, the over/under for applications is 216,409.

    Even our youth know this guy is a brick.

    You have your FACTS twisted again, TMN.

    The people being targeted for prevention of voting are in the Armed Services, and it's the Dems who are doing the trying.

    It is more likely the schools simply cannot afford to have a president give a commencement ceremony...what with all the budget cuts. Security nightmare.

    The dems pry dont want college kids to vote absentee though because then they might lose some votes when they try to disenfanchise the absentee voters because they are military voters.
