(Oct. 31, 2011) — Just when we think that Obama and Biden have reached the absolute pinnacle of outrageousness, we find that they have topped themselves. Now we see Obama, in what must be the most cynical political pander of all time, traveling around the country on Air Force One, attempting to buy the votes of heavily indebted students and former students with a partial forgiveness of student loans that is estimated to be worth from $4 to $8 per month, per person, for 20 years.
Why anyone would borrow as much as $200,000 to obtain a college degree that will do little or nothing to help them find gainful employment is beyond reason. Needless to say, those who would make such a foolish bargain are bound to be Obama voters. But that’s a subject for another day.
As a way of responding to Obama’s political ploy, his “student loan stimulus,” I have decided to write him an open letter describing my own experience with higher education. See below.
