Washington D.C. Marco Rubio says he wants his version of the DREAM Act in effect by fall, just in time for undocumented students to be able to attend college fall semester. Rubio, in two separate events in Washington D.C., said his plan is still being hammered out, and important details such as the minimum and maximum age of those who would qualify were yet to be determined. Were involving the DREAMers in the drafting of the measure, he said, using the term that refers to undocumented youth brought to the country by their parents. Were involving the kids themselves. Asked by a reporter when it will be introduced in the Senate, Rubio said: When its ready. It wont be next week. He said he hopes it gets introduced by summer and passed by fall.

Yes, I was talking about the "war on women." That's still going on, but the CNN blunder blunted their initiative a little temporarily. I always figured they would return to their plan eventually. Some polls show O with a lead, but now smaller, among women. Of course, that may have happened in any case.
Apparently Romney agrees with O on pandering to college kids (R says give them the goodies, but pay for it somehow, sometime -- yeah, right!). Looks like he senses danger, and wants to retreat leftward.
As I posted on that ‘FR won't support Romney’ thread 2 to 3 weeks ago, now that Romney has the nomination ‘in the bag’ watch him start reacting to Obama by supporting more and more of his political handout proposals.
Don't forget what he said on Lilly BedWetter law.
Unlike Romney Newt was ready and explained ‘The US doesn't have that money it is paying your tuition with, it is borrowing it. Everyone in the future is stuck with that debt even those that don't get to go to college like you’.
I was impressed. Amazingly the debt is many many times worse now than in 1995 but Romney hasn't the guts or ability to articulate it when responding to specific issues (plus he knows he will be told to 'tax the rich to pay for it').
Sad, but I suspected this last year.
