The Obama College Philoshophy

Because shopping around for the best possible value, getting something that is worth the money you spend on it, and not going into too much debt for it are all bad things in the eyes of the President.
RENO, Nev. (AP) — President Barack Obama accused rival Mitt Romney of being oblivious to the burdens of paying for college on Tuesday, telling young voters in battleground Ohio that his opponent's education policies amount to nothing more than encouraging them to tap their parents for money or "shop around" for the best deal.

"This is his plan. That's his answer to a young person hoping to go to college — shop around and borrow more money from your parents if you have to. Not only is that not a good answer, it's not even an answer," Obama said at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno.
Spending other people's money on things of questionable value and borrowing enormous amounts to do it is the Obama way.

  1. Keynesian economics at its finest. Spend, spend, spend. Don't save. Spend your way to a brighter future. Ugh.

  2. Heard that yesterday and scratched my head. I live in Ohio, and here we also get a commercial showing Romney saying "take a risk, borrow money from your parents if you have to..." and claiming this idea is BAD. The commercial shows this Romney soundbite at least 3 times. Do Democrats really think that will get young people to vote for them? My daughter is leaving for college in 2 days. She applied to 10 schools in hopes to get a good scholarship -- which she got -- so that she could graduate with little debt. Most of her friends are staying home and going to a state school (a very good one) so that they graduate with little or no debt. They all think of themselves as smart, astute kids who are good planners, not as downtrodden and in need of rescue!

  3. OK, so...isn't that what kids have always done? Borrow money from their parents for college and/or shopped around for the best deal? Get a job to help cover the costs? Found scholarships? Is Obama claiming that putting forth some effort and choosing a college you can afford is oppressive?
