God Bless Mitt Romney!

Cryn, I hope he is TRULY interested in changing this sick $y$tem. I have my doubts. Willard Mitt Romney - yes, his FIRST NAME IS WILLARD - will say ANYTHING to get elected. He showed that when he ran against Kennedy for his US Senate seat. He did the same thing when he ran for governor of Massachusetts. And he did the same when he sought the 2008 GOP nomination.

I suppose more of these politicians are surrounded by brilliant, debt-soaked college grads. Perhaps, this is the case with Willard Romney.


His father was governor of Michigan, after "serving" as CEO of American Motor Company from 1954-1962. He also ran for the GOP nomination, but lost to the beacon of integrity known as Richard Nixon.

Willard Romney has never had to worry about his next paycheck, or going to bed hungry. He is a snake. He will gladly do the bidding of corporate America. We do not need Reagan 2.0. Furthermnore, Willard has taken out a grand total of $0.00 in student loan debt. This means that he CANNOT relate to the student debtor. Then again, Obama allegedly incurred student debt - and that bitch has done very little-to-nothing to help debt-soaked college grads.

In sum, this man is phonier than a $3 dollar bill, with a picture of Marilyn Monroe's ass on the back.

The add is more about the economy than student loans. There are no proposals whatsoever.

I'm sorry, but this is nothing more than propaganda. Until a candidate comes out and says that student loans should be provided equal protection in bankruptcy (not too mention preventing social security from being garnished) it is all lip service.

It does not make short term economic sense to treat students fairly. This is why no hack politician (Mitt Romney) will touch it.

I'm not naive. I have my doubts about his sincerity, just as anyone else would. Naturally! That's really not the point, however. I find it interesting that he is showing an ad like this, and I believe - I could be mistaken - that he is the first Republican to do so. I want to hear how the WH will handle the crisis. As all of you know, I think they've done a pretty poor job thus far in responding to the issue. I mean, are they still avoiding the problem, as they did here? http://alleducationmatters.blogspot.com/2010/12/heather-higginbottoms-stale-suggestions.html

I think this will be a politically hot topic for the forthcoming elections. Whether or not it's solved, well that's another matter.
