Romney discusses affordable higher ed.
http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/03...n-college.html“It would be popular for me to stand up and say I’m going to give you government money to pay for your college, but I’m not going to promise that,” he said, to sustained applause from the crowd at a high-tech metals assembly factory here. “Don’t just go to one that has the highest price. Go to one that has a little lower price where you can get a good education. And hopefully you’ll find that. And don’t expect the government to forgive the debt that you take on.”
I have no problem with people that don't go to college. Steve Jobs didn't finish college. My wife didn't go to college and she managed to get a job that sometimes pays more than I make. And I have two bachelor's and a doctorate. But I do think college is important to keep us innovating and able to compete with the rest of the world. I get pissed when I hear this rhetoric coming from our politicians, and Romney and Santorum are candidates for President. I am increasingly pessimistic about our future.

To every example you can provide of one corporation "preying" on people, there are two examples of government furthering and enabling these practices through the very vehicle it can only operate on - force.

So Romney was asked how important it is for him to pick up a southern state and Romney replies: "I realize it is a bit of an away game,"
You don't give a reply like you're going to another country, you're running for president of the ENTIRE United States. You should talk to them the same way you address other Americans.
Santorum apologizes for his remark about shipping liberal judges to Guam

I will give him benefit of the doubt. He may well know that $80K would put a family in around the 76th percentile. But his wealth is so vast that those number may actually be too small for them to have any real meaning to him.
