Obama: Colleges must do their
part to bring down costs, too

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 8/16/2014 9:30:12 AM

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. Over the next couple weeks, schools all across the country will be opening their doors. Students will suit up for fall sports, marching band and the school play; moms and dads will snap those first-day-of-school pictures — and that includes me and Michelle. And so today, I want to talk directly with students and parents about one of the most important things any of you can do this year — and that’s to begin preparing yourself for an education beyond high school.

I challenge Obama to address a group of academics with the following (will never happen):

Greedy college professors need to pay their fair share. It´s their patriotic duty.

I´m stunned by this comment by Obama:

We know that in today’s economy...some higher education is the surest ticket to the middle class.

He is advocating not above-average success and wealth-building, but entry into the "middle class." How very ambitious. There is nothing wrong with being middle class, but everything wrong with advocating that it is an end in itself and that one shouldn´t think of becoming wealthy.

...I’m working to make sure young people like Elizabeth can go to college without racking up mountains of debt. We reformed a student loan system so that more money goes to students instead of big banks.

The "mountains of debt" wouldn´t have happened if we didn´t have the low-cost housing bust where banks had to scramble to get their money back from people who couldn´t pay because the gov´t mandated free loans.

As for cutting costs by colleges, get rid of some tenured communists and other grievance-victims, social justice "professors" and hire some people who teach real-life classes.

Stunning....:

But as long as college costs keep rising, we can’t just keep throwing money at the problem...

Why not? You keep throwing money at the poverty problem, the social justice problem, the immigration problem, the health care problem and all the other problems YOU created.

Here is Obama once again pretending he has nothing to do with the economic problems students face. Were their parents not hamstrung by job loss and diminishing income due to his policies, they would have more money to give to their kids for college.

OPEN RESPONSE TO ASININE WEEKLY ADDRESS: Mr. President, your domestic policies have taken so much money out of the pockets of parents, that they cannot pay for their kids´ college. And even with a student loan, you have created such bad blood between the gov´t and banks that YOU are mostly responsible, not the colleges.

In Pasadena, CA, the President Rochas of the Community College is leaving - too controversial - no one is sorry to see him go. Word just got out that his severance will amount to $400,000.

Incompetence and controversy pay.

That money would buy a lot of education for kids in a public community college.

then to bring down costs, let us begin by tossing the ridiculous expansions of non-teaching roles. The multiplicity of Diversity officers, with the supporting casts of assistants-to, secretaries, admins, etc. plus office space, filing cabinets, benefits, salaries, telephones, etc. Then trash all the Title IX idiocies, with the same impedimenta. Continue until done.
Want to include football coaches making well over $1,000,000 per year plus THEIR staff and such. The Womyn´s Studies, Black Studies, Chicano Studies, Arab Studies, Gay Studies, and all the rest. The LLBTQxxx creeps. The instructors in porn.
There is a LOT that needs to go.
Now end in the idiocy of paying crapheads like Shrillary $200,000 for a 35 minute speech of idiocy. Where does the money come from?
Next, end ALL "majors" including the word "studies". We have a local state university where one might earn a degree in Hospitality Studies, attesting that someone can run a Motel 6 I guess, or manage a Waffle House. You want to borrow $100,000 to be able to run a Motel 6, or even a Best Western?

Remember back in the 2012 presidential campaign when Barack Obama said things like: "Al Qaeda is on the run. We have decimated its core leadership. And Osama bin Laden is dead. But I don´t want Americans to think the struggle against terror is over. It´s not, by any means. We have a long fight ahead. By 2014, new terrorist groups may spring up and we´ll be back fighting in the Middle East." Neither do we.

President Obama´s weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. American leadership is the one constant in an uncertain world. That was true this week, as we mobilized the world to confront some of our most urgent challenges. America is leading the world in the fight to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL. On Monday, our brave men and women in uniform began air strikes against ISIL targets in Syria. And they weren’t alone. I made it clear that America would act as part of a broad coalition, and we were joined in this action by friends and partners, including Arab nations. At the United Nations in New York,

Joe Biden, according to his former Obama cabinet colleague Robert Gates, has the singular distinction of being wrong on just about every major foreign policy question in the last four decades. Even when he plagiarized. Biden opposed the Osama bin Laden assassination. Like Obama, Biden also opposed President Bush´s Iraq troop surge. Like Obama, Biden said the surge would actually make things worse in Iraq. [Snip] Almost exactly two years ago Joe was on the campaign trail warning American voters about how this cancer-causing businessman named Mitt Romney wanted to attack Syria.

Obama´s slovenly salute

The military salute is a simple hand gesture but loaded with tradition, honor, symbolism and packed with respect, both given and returned. It began in the days of chivalry when knights would raise their right hand approaching other knights to show they had no weapon unsheathed. The salute seems often to confound civilians without military experience, who see it as somewhat akin to a fraternity hand sign. Every modern president since Truman has had military (and saluting) experience -- except two Democrats. And both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have had trouble with the salute.

Lurching on to the new week´s next news diversion, the Obama administration announced new regulations Monday to punish U.S. businesses that employ Americans, make profits and seek to protect the gains for shareholders, as is their fiduciary responsibility. The over-hyped administration moves came against so-called business inversions, a perfectly legal pro forma shift of corporate headquarters to a foreign country with corporate taxes lower than the United States´ confiscatory 35% rate. The goal was to crimp the economic appeal of such moves. Although Russia and North Korea would not be recommended, the money-saving

President Obama´s weekly remarks Over the past week, the United States has continued to lead our friends and allies in the strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL. As I’ve said before, our intelligence community has not yet detected specific plots from these terrorists against America. Right now, they pose a threat to the people of Iraq, Syria, and the broader Middle East. But its leaders have threatened America and our allies. And if left unchecked, they could pose a growing threat to the United States.

Seeking to change the ISIS narrative from "we have no strategy" to "we can do this," President Obama visited the headquarters of CENTCOM and Special Ops in Florida Wednesday and said: "I´m not here to give a long speech." (It was 2,700 words in length.) Once again, the commander-in-chief placed great emphasis for his immediate and global audiences on what he is not going to do: "As your Commander-in-Chief, I will not commit you and the rest of our Armed Forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq."

The long-awaited House Select Committee on Benghazi begins its historic open hearings today. The chair is Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a no-nonsense former federal and state prosecutor now in his second House term. The 50-year-old Gowdy´s challenges include herding GOP colleagues in a coherent investigative direction while combating the anticipated pre-election obfuscations and complaints of Democrats eager to protect President Obama and his wannabe successor Hillary Clinton. But the committee´s most important duty is ferreting out credible answers to thousands of questions about the deadly night of 9/11/12.

Good afternoon, and welcome to the White House. More than four decades ago, in early 1970, an American squad in Vietnam set out on patrol. They marched down a trail, past a rice paddy. Shots rang out and splintered the bamboo above their heads. The lead soldier tripped a wire -- a booby trap. A grenade rolled toward the feet of a 20-year-old machine gunner. The pin was pulled, and that grenade would explode at any moment. A few years earlier, on the other side of the country, deep in the jungle, a small group of Americans were crouched on

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus
