YAL greets Michelle Obama with truth at Eastern Kentucky University Commencement

First Lady Michelle Obama visited the campus of Eastern Kentucky University on Saturday to deliver the commencement address. She encouraged students to reach out to those with different ideological beliefs, and Young Americans for Liberty at EKU took her advice ahead of time and distributed mock programs highlighting her husband's failure to protect individual liberties and allow economic growth. 

The program was designed to look like one that might distributed officially in conjunction with the event. People grabbed the program thinking they might get a preview of what Obama was going to talk about.


Once Obama began speaking, people holding YAL’s programs were shocked to discover that she did not, in fact, touch on how students could become too big to fail.


Obama’s actual speech was much more upbeat than the economic reality the graduates face.


YAL worked with the Leadership Institute to produce the programs.


The event was a huge success, with over 1000 of the programs being distributed to attendees in under half an hour! 

YAL’s protest was noticed by the media, including a story run by the Associated Press in newspapers across the country and a local paper.

That is beautiful.

Funny, I just read the article on the link posted, and the only mention of the YAL chapter is the fact that they took "potshots" at the First Lady. What I fail to see is the fact that they were offering a genuine alternative to the Republican and Democrat machines that have been so well entrenched in Washington. Still, I am glad to see that we are beginning them enough to get noticed.

Well ever since her husband became the American president even she is doing a good job promoting and empowering as much as event as she can representing her husband. She is also a good human being and such a great woman who knows to speak well.

Interesting. I would agree that focusing on growth vs cost control during the early stages of a business is ideal, however, there will be a point when that shifts.
