Obama promises support for colleges that keep costs down

Jan 27, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.detroitnews.com

President Barack Obama was on the stage for about 40 minutes at the University of Michigan for a speech Friday in front of thousands of students, touching on the need for making higher education more accessible and affordable.

"The reason I'm here today, in addition to meeting (U-M quarterback) Denard Robinson, is to talk with all of you about what most of you do here every day," he said. "That is to think about how you can gain the skills and training you need to succeed in this 21st century economy. This is going to be one of the most important issues that not just you face but everyone in the entire country faces."

This has been a problem for a very long time.

How is it that he only brings up this issue now that his term is almost over??

Seems more like election pandering, rather than a genuine concern for students that ONLY NOW captured his interest.

I would have thought he’d have included this in his original "change" itinerary. Nothing “changes” or turns an economy around like a well-educated workforce.

The amount of time some folks (the 99’ers) have been receiving government checks, they could have earned an associates degree, became a skilled tradesman, etc. and been readied for the job market.

So far, this looks like away to buy the youth vote, but as another poster stated; why did this take so long to look at?

It is great to see so many patriotic Americans enthusiastically cheering President Obama; it is such a great feeling knowing that he will be re-elected in November.

OBAMA 2012!!!!!!

That was in 2008, before the right-wing tea-baggers proved him wrong.

Hoping that the President (and country fail) is UNPATRIOTIC.

Disparaging President Obama and Seal Team 6 for finding and killing Osama bin Laden is UNPATRIOTIC.

Wanting this nation to be hit with another 9-11 type of an attack just because Obama is the President and to take some of the sting out of the fact that it happened on republican’s watch is UNPATRIOTIC.

Feeling said about good news for the country as you talk doom and gloom in spite of the facts is UNPATRIOTIC.

No one has to hope for obama to fail, that is the one thing he is good at. That and 'winning' the nobel peace prize.

So it seems YOUR political philosophy differs from Obama.

How will you live with yourself?

Thanks for proving my point that right-wing nuts like you are unpatriotic and delusional… it is great to have the whole killing of Osama bin Laden to blunt the fantasies of you right-wingers about President Obama failing… if only George W. Bush had failed like this when it came to preventing 9-11 and getting Bin Laden.

The bottom line is if obama can't make ANY positive economic changes in 4 years, if all he can do is increase the national debt and increase federal spending, why would we keep him. As for marine corp patty’s obsession, I wonder if she went through a cigar phase when clinton was president?
