Stump Speech 101

by John J. Miller

Freshmen at Texas State University were forced to listen to Patrick Kennedy stump for Obamacare. Jose R. Gonzalez of The College Fix has the story:

Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy disparaged “Bible Belt” lawmakers and encouraged students to fight hard for Obamacare’s success in a recent speech before a room full of college students, many of whom were required to attend.

The Oct. 8 event, hosted by Texas State University, drew an audience of more than 900 people. It’s part of the academic program Common Experience, and many freshmen were required to watch the speech and write a summary on it.
