I am sure I'm not the only Notre Dame alum to be PROUD that President Obama will be speaking at the commencement this year. I was lucky enough to have had George H.W. Bush speak at my commencement in 1992. It was an honor to have the president speak at Notre Dame then, and it is an honor now. Respect for the office of the President is point 1. Point 2 is that there are other groups in no way associated with Notre Dame which are using the University's name and this headline to promote their own agenda, which is especially distasteful to me as an alum, but whose two-faced agenda should be distasteful to anyone in favor free speech.

Michael G. Greene, United States5 years ago Comments: OPEN discussion and discourse is at the heart of the life of a great university. We are a DIVERSE nation. We should honor the President of the United States and enter into open dialogue with him about all social policies and issues confronting our nation today. To disrespect the sitting president of the United States because he holds certain beliefs is not in keeping with the democratic traditions of our great country. Other presidents have spoken at Notre Dames and have been given honorary degrees. What makes this situation any different
