New milestone in Obama's America: Just as tough to get job at McDonald's as it is to be admitted to Harvard 

Dan McLaughlin at notes an interesting parallel in acceptance rates at two of America's best-known institutions.

McDonald's recently received a million job applications during it's one-day application event, while Harvard completed consideration of applicants for its 2015 freshman class. The fast-food chain accepted 62,000 of those applicants, which means, McLaughlin observes:

"That’s a 6.2% acceptance rate. Harvard College’s acceptance rate for the Class of 2015? 6.2%. In Barack Obama’s America, it’s officially now as difficult to get a job flipping hamburgers as it is to get into Harvard."

That's just one of  several bracing observations by McLaughlin concerning the must-read piece by The Weekly Standard's Jay Cost on the "Food Stamp Recovery." You can read the rest of McLaughlin's comments here and the Cost piece here.
