"Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have a Plan for a Stronger Middle Class to get our economy back on track and ensure that young Americans – and all Americans – have the brighter future they deserve.”

Trickle down??? Yeah, even if that theory worked, how long would that take to achieve. Plan on another bleak four years people, cause it won't be any brighter with these two clowns at the helm. They want to lay off more government workers thereby driving the unemployment rate UP, they want to concern themselves with abortion issues which isn't going to add a single job, and Romney has already told college students that basically they are on their own but maybe they can borrow money from mom and dad to pay for college. That's a brighter future????

It should be clear that the Republican Romney/Ryan ticket is going to campaign on a real conservative platform. Every time the slip up and tell us what they actually plan to do it is right out of the Conservative playbook.

They are going to cut taxes on the wealthy, eliminate spending on education, income supports and any other form of "social welfare" including social security and medicare.

They are going to Outlaw all Abortions. They are going to Outlaw homosexuality. They are going to institutionalize Christianity as the nations one and only religion.

They are going to run never ending wars to project Americans exceptionalism onto those nations who do not belive we are exceptional just so they can feed the war machine and create profits for the oldest of the 1%'s.

These people are very dangerous.

Wasn't Obama one of those college Professors getting paid $ 150,000 a year to teach one class? Didn't Elizabeth Warren get paid $360,000 dollars a year to teach one class?
So if you take my tax money to over pay a college professor isn't just a huge waste of taxpayer dollars.
$200,000-500,000 for a 4 year college education? YOU BETTER SHOP AROUND
Handing out Pell Grants with no income requirements?
You don't have to pay your fair share when it comes to over paying college professors?
How does that help the ones that need it?

How many banksters were earning millions, tens of millions, for doing nothing except ripping off the American people. At least professors are sharing something of value for the money.

Romney-Ryan 2012 gets rid of all the Banker tax breaks and free Pell money to those who do not need it, but still provides Pell Grants for those who cant afford it..
Obama wants to just ahnd it out for votes... Bankers are still raking it in after 4 years of Obama reform. All we got out of his and Warrens new Board was a $5.00 fee to cash checks. Thanks

They need to talk about the scandal of the on-line private 'colleges' that are really scamming people. Rmoney is involved with one in Florida and others elsewhere. The worst part is that returning Vets are targeted as recruits to these schools, along with their GI bill money and they are left with no valuable education - only 14% ever complete these programs.

I think that soon, higher education will be turned on it's head, online classes that reach all across the world will make the cost of education drastically go down, as of now they are just starting out, it will be interesting to see where it goes from here. Which is why high speed internet should be available and subsidized for every family that has a financial need for it. Instead of public libraries, we need public internet.

high speed internet is dirt cheap everywhere else in the industrialized world, there is no reason for it to cost a lot, and placing new high speed cable, like google fiber around the country would be a great jobs infrastructure project.

Iam really tired of Obama speeches ,it represent the hypocrisy of a politician ,What is the meaning of investing millions of dollars in education each year and still US not ranked in the top ten countries in education compared to other nations.What is the meaning of investing millions of dollars and creating many programs to support young minds to finish college and this college graduates cannot find decent jobs with a decent pay so they benefit themselves and their communities and their country.During Obama first term unemployment rate among college graduates is 23%and US ranking in education compared to other nations didn't improve a bit .This make me wonder what accomplishments Obama done in US education in the last 4 years that give him the right to criticize the record of any one else.

Many of the wealthy prefer a system where only the wealthy can send their children to university. It makes it easier for their kids to get in and they don't have to compete with the riffraff. Who cares what happens to America, the rich will still be rich. The people who do not have enough wealth to assure their children's' future comfort in perpetuity should have been more virtuous er wealthy (it's the same thing.) Who needs a middle class? It just makes it more expensive to find good help. Totally wrong, of course, but who cares if you're rich.

Universities are expensive because flunkies like EWarren get paid $700K per year to 'teach'. It's called tenure.

Basically the Romney/Repub campaign strategy seems to be how awful the Obama adminstration is for students. Nothing about how good their policies are for students, Oh right, cause they would be horrible for education.
