A Harsh Lesson at Columbia

As Obama brings his rock-the-youth-vote campaign to the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City, he wants to be photographed in a sea of adoring youthful faces. And yet, through incompetence or cynical calculus, he's throwing some of the most inspiring, hard-working students in America under the bus.
