Of all the people I would have expected to speak out on the subject of campus coddling — that new trend of protecting our precious little butterflies, who are legally adults but psychologically stunted, from any opinion that dares to disagree with their own — it would not have been President Obama.
After all, campus coddling favors liberals by insisting that nothing that so much as tarnishes the closed, American, college student mind with potential disagreement, and that anything that prevents a competing worldview to the progressive is systematically eliminated from public discourse, thus rendering every last rising adult a ward of the public university they pay thousands to for education.
"It’s not just sometimes folks who are mad that colleges are too liberal that have a problem. Sometimes there are folks on college campuses who are liberal and maybe even agree with me on a bunch of issues who sometimes aren’t listening to the other side. And that’s a problem, too," Obama said during a town hall on Monday in Des Moines, Iowa.
