Today President Obama announced that he will begin tackling the issue of sexual assault on college campuses. My own 2-cents is that campus and local law enforcement need to stop turning a blind eye to campus sexual assault just because colleges are big giant money reaping businesses with corporate reputations they need to look after. The cops let any business just do whatever now, so thats how college sexual assault just gets overlooked, or ignored, or covered up. The people who own the colleges, and who work at them, know all of this already.

So, because we don't have a congress anymore, President Obama has to use his somewhat limited executive powers to try to address this issue.

Many advocates for such a crackdown may see the proposals as an inadequate response to a crisis, but the White House is hamstrung about what it can do without congressional action and has just begun its own attack on the issue.
Here is the report the White House released today.

**Now I feel bad because I wrote earlier today that I thought President Obama acted like a Hawaiian frat boy sometimes because one of his friends called Elizabeth Warren a cheerleader that time. I was just saying that because it can be true sometimes.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
