WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is bringing together university presidents from across the country together to exact commitments from each other to expand access to higher education.

Surely Hillsdale’s President will be invited to contribute his ideas.
I hope someone sneaks a pic of him and Bill Ay3rs.
Wish someone would post salaries of the attendees with income inequality and all.
Remember when he invited all the ‘healthcare’ companies to the white house?
A Politburo meeting... oh goody!
The heads of an industry get called to the White Hut.
They are told their industry is being nationalized. They have the choice to either cooperate or face destruction.
Girls gone wild ?
You ain't seen NUTHIN' yet.
I wouldn't send my child to any college except Hillsdale and known and proven, separated Christian schools.
There MUST be a remnant.
Isn’t there already great access to college opportunities, for all who wish to go to college? What am I missing? Do we really need affoirmative action, so to speak, to provide greater access to a college education than we already have?
I hate to ask, but does Obama think we need some major new government program in this area???
We hardly need the taxpayers to subsidize the former group anymore.
Because the inflation in college costs makes the cost of Obamacare look reasonable? (Maybe he's looking for PR pointers.)
dumBO gets a photo op. What do they get?
Tuitions are sky high. Meanwhile someone like Sandusky fights to keep his $4,900 monthly pension from Penn State.
Sperling used the word “Inequality” twice in one Run-On sentence and blamed parents who put theit kids first for causing that Inequality. This reminds me of an Oprah show I watched on a Sick Day. One guest said that equality can only be achieved by NOT teaching White children for 100 years.
Why, if their model spread (and it is already starting to do so), then the entire educrat house of cards could collapse!
I remember the “Doctors” who all wore White jackets handed to them by WH staff. Maybe Obama will hand out Gown and Mortar Board to the academics.
To tell them what — “Good job for distorting the nation’s history and making our youth feel guilty and evil for being American!”?
Promises of unicorns and rainbows for encouraging fellow twenty-somethings to enroll in ObamaCare.
for a lecture no doubt
President Obama threatens to circumvent Congress with his pen and phone strategy
Do you hear what hes saying, Glenn asked. Hes got a phone, and hell call the universities. And he will get people called into action. He will call the labor unions. He will call the non-profits into action.
Obama: ‘We Are Not Just Going To Be Waiting For Legislation’ To Advance Agenda
Glenn Beck: Pen & Phone
The North tried that against the South after the Civil War, suppressing industry and education for whites as well as blacks. It worked, before easy interstate travel, ubiquitous access to higher education and the Internet. Now, you have families like the Robertsons who defy all nasty racist stereotypes -- they are smart, educated, have two children of color adopted into the family, people love their clean show and appreciate their praying -- how can that be? sniff the producers.
...he needs more ideas on how to destroy America
Ah, college presidents. That’s the job you get when you serve absolutely no real use with regard to real academic courses.
And, of course, that’s why the Obamadork invited them to the Felon House. Equal non-achievers discussing subjects none of them could possibly ever understand.
These termites are up to no good. Lefty coordination is in the works, in preparation for the 2014 midterms. The shiny object for this election will be income inequality, like the War on Women was for the last. The Dem schemers are enlisting compliant college presidents, giving them their marching orders.
I’m guessing that when the presidents leave the White Hut, they will be saying to each other “Well, at least he’s OUR dumbass!”
I wonder if former Republican governor Mitch Daniels was
I doubt it. My son attends Purdue, the other graduated from there. I’ve met Daniels a few times. Daniels was a coup for Purdue; he’s instituted a tuition freeze and capped salaries. The academics hate him. He won’t get invited to the White Hut. He displays “wrong thinking” as he actually expects results.
Even though I’m an IU grad, I’m glad by boys have or are getting degrees that will have real value.
Barky needs to be outfitted with a straight-jacket, a leash, and a muzzle. After the shock treatments.
what, expand for illegals or who? Tell them to lower there professor fees, for what they teach the students, they are OVERPAID!
Obama’s Money Laundering moving ahead ,Obama has to be a Billionaire if he ever leaves the White House or he’ll never survive
More crony capitalism.
Saul Alinsky Rule #10 “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
Why, instead, doesn’t he invite teen-age girls, especially inner-city minority girls, to the White House? He and his wife could tell them to stay in school, to study instead of having sex with their serial boyfriends and having children out of wedlock. Then they might eventually have children raised in a stable family who would qualify totally on their own for admission to the more competitive universities. That would be *real* affirmative action.
Obama is in bed with Big Education, Big Pharma, and Big Labor.
If someone could get us the names of the 100 college and university officials attending....I’m sure we could find their salaries....should be public information.
Your forgot BIG CORPS, and BIG INSURANCE
No worries, the meeting is just to invite them to a flight on Air Force One.
Better access for blacks, poorer access for whites and asians.
...to expand access to higher education.
Translation, I suppose, is “lower the standards”.
Don’t see how they can lower them much more. I am truly astounded by how uninformed are most college students that I have met.
The only way to make a college education viable again is to RESTRICT access to higher education. Money would be much better spent on HS shop classes for training in the trades. It would probably cut down on behavior problems if students actually learned how to do something of immediate value in the workforce upon graduation.
The initiative to completely “nationalize” our post secondary educational system is underway, via :
1) no federal budget ( Obama can use money anyway he wants)
2) executive order
And Obama is laying the ground with them in this meeting, and he is laying down “the law.”
Impeachment SHOULD be immediate, swift, and without mercy.
Gee, I wonder who will get stuck with the bill? /s
You should make your kids pay their own way. It’ll teach them appreciation of the opportunities and frankly I am not going until I can foot my own bill.
Both of my girls are married working through the pitfalls of life, rearing husbands and children.
None of my children ever expressed a desire to go to college, even a Christian school.
They couldn't WAIT to get out and 'do life'
To the outsider, we struggle, to us, we're content.
PS ... welcome to FreeRepublic.
Rearing husbands is difficult.
