Mitt: Pay for Your Own Damn College!

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney speaks at a town hall meeting in Youngstown, Ohio, March 5, 2012.  Romney gained momentum on the eve of Super Tuesday as he sought to steal a march on rival Rick Santorum in the Republican presidential race by snatching a crucial victory in Ohio. Voters in 10 states across America will have their say on Tuesday in a potentially pivotal day in the see-saw contest to see who will take on President Barack Obama, a Democrat, in the November 6 general election.

Earlier this week, a pretty interesting and telling exchange took place at a Mitt Romney town hall meeting. A student asked Romney what he would do to make college more affordable for students who struggle to pay for it. Romney’s reply was jarring:

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.”

  1. Hmmm, interesting. I’m not sure how I feel. Education for the underpriviledged is certainly the great equalizer and great for the economy since we desperatly need educated and skilled workers – on the other hand I do feel like the Government should stay out of the market because usually that causes prices to go up.

    I think the answer is for each individual to do the best they can. Go to a public school if you have to – excel wherever you go. Take on debt responsibly, apply for scholarships, attend public school where the tuitions are lower, and major in something that will equate you having a job. Minor in something you love…

  2. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
