President Obama is supposed to give the commencement speech at Arizona State University this May. Normally when someone gives the commencement speech they are awarded an honorary degree. ASU says they are not giving the President one because they feel like he hasn't accomplished enough yet, that he still have a lot more to accomplish in the future. Ok, I agree that I think we will see a lot more accomplishments from President Obama in the future. But that he hasn't accomplished enough yet? He was just elected President of the United States. What bigger accomplishments can someone do?

I hear Jesus had to wait a few years to get his honorary degree from them, as well. Seems unbelievable (nay, inconceivable!) that they would ask him to speak (in itself implying that he has something to offer) then claim he wasn't deserving of what is basically a standard-issue honor. That makes me very, very RAWR.
