Sweet Irony

The is a certain irony to this report in my opinion.

Students wishing to meet the president during his visit to their graduation commencement, must prove that they are citizens to come with in arms reach of the president. Yet to become president? Apparently none of that applies.

Obama may personally greet each graduate: Kalamazoo Central seniors to fill out paperwork for Secret Service

The White House appears to be laying the groundwork for President Barack Obama to shake the hand of each senior at Kalamazoo Central High School’s commencement ceremony next month.

Seniors are being asked 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.

Obama has never proven that he is a US citizen, nor will he ever be required to.
