Sometimes you get the sense that Barack Obama’s problem is that he was born too late. During his tenure in the White House, Obama has worked assiduously to reduce Russia’s nuclear stockpile, seemingly oblivious to the facts that (1) the Cold War ended seventeen years before he ascended to the presidency and (2) other nations, including India and China, have since acquired nuclear capabilities and Iran appears poised on the threshold.
A second indicator of Obama’s out-of-touchedness with the world into which he was elected is his emphasis on a college education. Numerous commentators have glumly observed that college degrees are now so commonplace that having one, even from an elite institution of higher learning, is a waste of time, money, and energy.
An even better indicator of how utterly pointless a college degree is is manifest in a man-on-the-campus interview that CNS News’s Dan Joseph did on the subject of ISIS. Joseph took his hidden camera to the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked students passing by to sign his petition urging Obama to support the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Joseph reports:
I was able to accumulate 11 signatures and email addresses from students at this institute of higher education. Students who will, one day, go into the world and have real responsibilities. Students who, will one day, have children. Students who probably vote in presidential elections.
Elsewhere in his summary he writes:
I can only assume that the college students who were willing to sign my petition calling on President Obama to support the terror group, were ignorant to the group’s existence.
Gee, ya think?
