Obama’s Stephen Colbert Moment

In this post, AEI’s Andrew Kelly comments on what he calls Obama’s Stephen Colbert Moment — calling out colleges and universities for displeasing him with tuition increases.

Obama’s talk about getting tough with colleges over tuition is pure political blather. One reason costs keep going up, thus necessitating tuition increases, is that schools keep adding administrative positions like Chief Diversity Officer. College spending is responsible for the jobs of a great many of Obama’s most zealous supporters.

It’s easy to demagogue college costs, but this is nothing more than theatrics.
