    Hey guys, I’m late to the party, and am just now getting to watch the video of the President’s visit to Memphis. I must say that young Christopher Dean’s introduction of President Obama was so touching and quite timely. I especially like the part where he said “that was a joke,” imitating the President in his recent obliteration of Fox News and Donald Trump and their birther nonsense at the White House Correspondents Dinner. :)

    As has been stated in a previous thread, the President’s visit to Memphis today and his down-to-earth delivery of the commencement address were simply amazing. Today was another reaffirmation that we have the right guy in office, and we must do everything possible to keep him in the White House for another five years!

      I just love that young student who introduce the President. This school is a success story, it shows our kids across this country can and must do better. I’m proud of them.
