Bristol's College Decision -- Signs Point to Devils

12/25/2010 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bristol Palin is telling friends she may enroll at an Arizona college once she moves into the home she just bought in the Grand Canyon state ... TMZ has learned.

So far, no official word on which school the 20-year-old has her eye on ... but there are a few major clues.

Bristol just purchased a $172,000 home outside the Phoenix area -- which she paid for IN CASH! The home is just miles from the Arizona State University school of broadcasting ... a school that boasts one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the country. Bristol has expressed an interest in public speaking.

Plus -- and possibly more important -- ASU totally DISSED Barack Obama last year!!

As you may recall, Sun Devil honchos refused to give Obama an honorary degree last May after he gave the commencement speech at graduation ... with school officials insisting the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES hadn't accomplished enough in his career to warrant the honor.

Sounds like Sarah Palin's kind of place  ...

So far, no comment from ASU.

In case you haven't noticed, obama's only accomplishment is to sucker the American people into making him president. He's never even led a boy scout troop.

Kudos to the ASU administration.

It's sad that people like her get everything handed to them on a silver plate while good people can't even afford to go to a community college.

I wonder if Levi knows. Most custody agreements have some kind of move-away clause that limits how far the custodial parent can move the child away from the non-custodial parent.

NYT: Economists see signs of stronger recovery

The tax-cut compromise, rising corporate profits and an increase in consumer spending are some of the reasons for optimism.

WASHINGTON — Eighteen months after the recession officially ended, the government’s latest measures to bolster the economy have led many forecasters and policy makers to express new optimism that the recovery will gain substantial momentum in 2011.

Economists in universities and on Wall Street have raised their growth projections for next year. Retail sales, industrial production and factory orders are on the upswing, and new claims for unemployment benefits are trending downward.

Despite persistently high unemployment, consumer confidence is improving. Large corporations are reporting healthy profits, and the Dow Jones industrial average reached a two-year high this week.

A big thanks to Palin for helping to take one school off my daughter's list. She said if Bristol Palin goes to Arizona, she definitely wouldn't want to go there.

Ok, maybe you're right about Elinor Ostrom. Two others, Leland H. Hartwell with the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Edward Prescott for Economics. I think they are faculty, at least that's what the ASU website says.

"Something is hinky about the purchase of that house. Who sells a house worth $350,000 for $172,000?

Posted at 9:37 AM on Dec 25, 2010 by Jody"


"Not really sure where the $350,000 amount came from. Houses in Arizona have always been less expensive then California. The houses in Ca. have dropped to about half of what they were a few years ago and Arizona real estate is roughly half of that so $172,000 for home is about right."

Not really sure why she paid $172,000 in Maricopa. That's pretty high based on general home values here. I'm thinking maybe around $110-120k is what the home was actually worth. She'll be stunned when she has to start paying the "local" utility bills. Water will run $100-$120 a month and electricity on a 4k sq home will easily be $200+ a month during winter and probably $60...0-$800 a month during the summer. She won't last long.....

Way to make news out of nothing. Obama didn't get a honorary degree from ASU because school policy has always been to not give them to standing officials. This only became news, when there was nothing else to talk about at the time. Also, as red as AZ may be, The students at ASU tend to have a completely different political view point than the retired people living in Sun City.

Wow. These comments are unbelievable. Gloria: You are concerned that ASU is the only school to "except" her? Looks like YOU didn't get your GED. Truth guy: Picking on her weight? Do you call all women at that weight and height fat? Do you shun them? If you want to pick on something real, I have no complaints. But the above people are just ignorant biased and sexist individuls who hide behind their computer screen names!
