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.

1224_bristol_palin_asu_tmz_ex

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.

Being President isn't an honor. It's an elected office. As you cannot understand that point, I suppose it's hopeless to explain that a school--in this case, a university--doesn't have views.

I don't understand how people who are supposed to be so Christian that they were born again in Christ would consider attending or supporting anything that has a devil attached to it. isn't that hypocrisy or blasphemy or something? wait a cotton-picking minute! Obama was denied an honorary degree from ASU for not having accomplished enough in his life? seriously? okay, being elected (by a country that seems to be getting redder and redder) the FIRST BLACK POTUS aside, I guess the whole president of the Harvard Law Review thing doesn't have the prestige it once did? Or did his holding the position, do something to diminish it? Why would he even go to a red state college to give a commencement? Howard is right around the corner from his house. THOSE STUDENTS and faculty wouldn't have rolled out the "red carpet" for him and shown him all kinds of respect and gratitude? When are we going to stop begging to be liked by those who have nothing but contempt for the very idea of us being in this country and out of shackles, and build up our strengths by playing to them? Is only the uphill battle the one worth winning?

@And That's The Truth: If California is an entitlement state of democrats, why were almost 250 companies prosecuted under the Clinton administration for hiring illegal aliens, but only about 15 under the Bush administration? Because Republican leaders are encouraging illegal immigration for their wage-lowering, union-busting goals. When Clinton was president, most companies out here, even if one had worked at a company for a long time, required that all employees bring their birth certificates and driver's licenses and/or passports to prove their citizenship and/or legal right to work here, complete a federal form under penalty of perjury. The companies were required to photocopy those do***ents and keep them with those forms in a file. That stopped after Bush was elected. And I don't believe the new Arizona immigration laws included mandatory requirement that all companies register with e-verify to check immigration status of an employee, either. You should check your facts.

I'm also tired of people comparing Bristol to Chelsea Clinton. Chelsea was very dignified during her father's scandal; she was not the source of the scandal, like Bristol, nor was she ever photographed with a bong in her mouth. Further, she is a trained ballerina who can actually dance.

Bristol seems like a good mother and I wish her well. But most young people could also pay cash for a house if their mother's fame caused them to be on DWTS, caused them to get votes that were not really deserved, and paid them about $250,000 for only a few weeks of work, and caused them to also receive large speaking fees about abstinance.

I like to see Bristol have opportunities -- no reason she should turn them down -- but neither is any extraordinary credit due.

What she does with her life and money should not have so much impact on all your lives.
Give her a break, she is a young mother who is trying to do what we're all doing. GETTING AN EDUCATION, in order to get ahead.
Why do you hate her?
Instead of waisting your thoughts on hate and dislike of others, why not spend a moment to love and think good of the person you most dislike.
Hating BP is not goimg to help any one in a positive way !!!!!!!

Her mommy would approve of a state with an immigrant hate law.

As an Arizona resident, I certainly hope ASU charges her the full, non-resident tuition, just like other *immigrants*.

What is all the hoopla about? The girl is exactly where she needs to be...in a redneck state with more toothless trailer trash & illegals than the state of texas!! ASU - that should tell you everything! Oh wait, isn't McCain the senator? PigChin Palin should hook up with McCain's trashy daughter and do informercials about the dangers of inbreeding and consuming too much alcohol. Arizona deserves all the trash they've ac***ulated, just another tumbleweed blowing in the wind. When is she expected to drop her 3rd child? Wonder if this one will be a tard like the first one!

Good for her, sounds like she has a head on her shoulders unlike so many others commenting here. All the hate thrown on her while she was on DWTS at least has a happy ending.

This isn't "dirt". There is nothing wrong with this at all. But I must say that it must be nice to have such a privileged life that you can **** up royally at 17 and then having everything handed to you at 20.

She hasn't worked for a single freaking thing she has. She's famous for having a famous mommy, therefore she was handed a spot on a show that paid for this house. Great she's doing something with her life but she is, by no means, a role model or an example for ANYONE.

I am tired of the Palin's, personally anyone who can't see that the mother is as dumb as a coal bucket has got to be blind and deaf. Also, if there are people dumb enough in this country to put them in the White House, then maybe we need to rethink where we live. Bush put us into this mess we're in for 8 years, and people are blaming President Obama for everything. Hey people it took 8 years to run the country into the ground, it will take more than 2 years to fix the mess Bush put us in.

Saw this story on TMZ today and the two guys who went to ASU should know how ASU works. Yeah they let almost anyone who wants to go there get accepted in order to get their money but then they weed out the undesirables in the first year or two so if you actually graduate your getting a good education but half the people who are accepted fail out. Proof of this is that ASU is currently ranked in the top 100 universities in the world.
