“Will Your Policies Survive The Decline In Your Popularity?”

President Obama shaking hands with students at St. Xavier students
“The discussion will mostly be about how youth can shape the future,” predicts Fr. Frazer Mascarenhas, S.J., principal at St Xavier’s College. Given President Obama’s track record of pithy statements and memorable speeches, the students are expecting fireworks, even as they agonise over dress code and having to show up at 8 am.
Aditi Naik, in her third year of sociology and anthropology, is planning to dress formally. The soft-spoken student has a hard question for the President:  “Will your policies survive the decline in your popularity?”  
Aashish D’Mello, a first-year business management student, also plans to engage Obama in contentious territory: “Why is the US still supporting Pakistan despite several terror incidents in India? Also, when will the US army leave Iraq?”

That's a great question for Obama! He likes to please everybody with his eloquent speeches, but manages to achieve little.

Hopefully his pro-abortion policies won't be passed.
