The only country in the world where one language is taught. Most other countries teach 3 or 4 to their students. Yes, we are dumb.

Geeze, do you ever tune away from MSNBC? He has lost the youth vote by something like 10% and he's gotta get it back. He has the single UNMARRIED women's vote (have NO idea why), he's lost the White blue and white collar men's vote, the working mother vote and the educated married woman vote, all he has left is the various minorities he's courting like Santa with a free this and a free free that and a happy free this and a happy free that. More "Hope and Change" and the educated know how well that worked. Unfortunately for Mr. Obama, the majority of the American voting public just aren't that stupid.

FYI. Romney supports the very same student loan programs as Obama. He also supports keeping artificially low loan rates for them.

They get no sympathy from me. Maybe if they bothered to study and get a degree in something actually useful they could pay off their loans instead of whining about it constantly.

Romney 'Fully Supports' Extension of Low Student Loan Interest Rates
By Lucy Madison | National Journal – Mon, Apr 23, 2012...

Poll: Youth Support for Obama Rising but Still Tenuous
A Tight Race

In an apparent pitch to young voters, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney went out of his way on Monday to tout his support for efforts to extend low interest rates on student loans, telling reporters that "I fully support the effort to extend the low interest rate on student loans."

Some Republicans have opposed the extension on the grounds that it would come at a high cost to taxpayers. On this issue, however, Romney seems to see eye-to-eye with President Obama.

Romney, who had just ended a press availability alongside Sen. Marco Rubio, a possible VP pick, returned to the microphone to make sure that he had expressed his support for the extension of low interest rates for students, which are set to expire in July.

(PICTURES: Romney on the Trail With Possible VP Candidates)

"There's one thing I want to mention that I forgot to mention at the very beginning, and that was that particularly with the mention of the number of college graduates that can't find work or that can only find work well beneath their skill level, I fully support the effort to extend the low interest rate on student loans," Romney said.

He added that there was "some concern" that the low interest rates would expire halfway through the year, and he emphasized that "I support extending the temporary relief on interest rates for students as a result of--as a result of student loans, obviously--in part because of the extraordinarily poor conditions in the job market."

Some of the "concern" Romney mentioned is coming from Obama. The president, who is visiting colleges in North Carolina, Colorado, and Iowa this week, has repeatedly emphasized his administration's efforts to ease the burden of debt on young people seeking higher education, and he is strongly urging Congress to extend the low interest rates, which will jump from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent without an extension.

"In America, higher education cannot be a luxury," Obama said on Saturday during his weekly radio and Internet address. "It's an economic imperative that every family must be able to afford."

The president cast the issue as a matter of "values" and suggested that Republicans were getting in the way of helping middle-class families send their kids to college.

"We cannot let America become a country where a shrinking number of people do really well while a growing number of people struggle to get by," he said.

Obama's reelection campaign seized on Romney's position as inconsistent, given his support of House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan's budget blueprint and his willingness to consider cutting education spending.

"While he previously endorsed the Ryan budget, which would make deep cuts to Pell Grants and allow student loan rates to double, and last week said that he would gut the Department of Education to pay for his tax plan, today we heard yet another—and contradictory—position from Romney on student loans," spokeswoman Lis Smith said.

Yes. When I was at University my art and drama major friends would taunt me by saying "you have work and i don't.." when I had to study instead of party.

When I meet them now, they say the exact same thing....

He doesn't talk.. he yells. What a big mouth and then right from the pulpit of Reverand Wrights playbook after making an obvious statement about debt and student loans asks for .."can I hear an Amen?"

Cheap parlor tricks and motor mouthing does not make for charm.

President Obama is naturally charming. He knows what it's like to pay a monthly student loan bill. Willard has NEVER needed a loan for anything in his entire life. He has always been on CORPORATE WELFARE. And he had his own "sugar Daddy".
Repuglies ONLY care about bank profits, NEVER people!
after all he was perfectly groomed by the CIA.

and oh, by the way where are his school records and submissions?

who the F** is this guy? His grandmother worked for Timothy Geitners Grandpa.

oh yeah.

Romney is going to be such a refreshing change from all the divisive hate speak which has come to define obama and the "progressive" elite Tax Slavers.

Romney is Obama in another suit. He is a globalist. hello.

as if anyone had a choice before? Bush the drunk or McINSANE the maniac.

I don't lean towards either. But at least one can hold Romney's feet to the fire on his Christian background.
