    It used to be an honor to have the president to visit a University. Not this time. Just another snub.

    Hold on now............

    When a place like Columbia U, or UC Berkeley, wont allow a right winger on campus, or boos them and shows their rudeness to one..........right wingers chime in whining "Where is their tolerance and diversity!!!???"

    Well, right wingers, are you gonna slam UVA or not being tolerant and diverse??
