Just another of his schitzophrenic re-election tactics, similar to the comedy, campus visits, and TV "performances" to attract the "youth" vote.

His campaign tour of college campuses touting the "non-issue" of the expiring reduced interest rate for college loans already being handled by the Congress and the inference that he is "saving" of that rate for them, together with his unsubstantiated claims about his own difficulty paying off college loans may make for good political theater, but it relies on the naivete and "dumbing down" these students have experienced in their schools.

Submitted here is an example of student reaction to one of his visits yesterday.

Had students been taught that the debtor is slave to the debtholder, and that the role of government is not to enslave people by offering to make them indebted, but to provide a framework of laws to protect their freedom, they might not be attracted to shallow "rock star" style leadership, but to someone of scholarly substance who would tell them the truth about civilizations's historical struggle for individual freedom and of their own Constitution's limits on power in government.

Sadly, the facts presented in the articles on this thread are not presented to these students, who, likely will not find jobs available because of the "taking" and "spending" philosophy of the redistributionist policies of the past 3+ years, and decades of government's ignoring Constitutional limits on spending, deficits, and debt.

Lauren Edmonds’ writing is pure drek — “It was an incredible day and one that I will never forget.” She seriously needs to reconsider her journalism major. Perhaps she’s a junior in elementary school, not in college.
