Obama’s radical endorsement

Letter to the Editor | Sunday, November 9, 2008

The mainstream media has done rather poorly reporting on an issue with the president-elect Barack Obama that everyone at Notre Dame should consider significant. Obama has been formally endorsed by a man who stands in direct opposition to something every Notre Dame student holds dear, who terrorizes the very system in which he thrives and who is unrepentant for all that he has done.I’m talking, of course, about Pete Carroll. As coach at USC, he has stood in unflinching, direct and unrepentant opposition to Notre Dame for years. He has done damage to the very fabric of college football with his nonstop whining whenever his team is not selected to play in the national championship. Furthermore, he does not reject what he does and will continue to do it until we send a clear message (preferably this year) that we will not stand for it any longer.Though the media may not be reporting it, this association (which Obama has not rejected) should infuriate all at Our Lady’s University. I therefore encourage all students to send letters to the president-elect, Congress, news stations, newspapers and distant relatives demanding explanation for this “Obamination.”
