Hooray! Obama To Hit The Road To Talk About Affordable College

Remember when he said that he would spend every waking moment working on the economy? Then gave a couple speeches before heading out on a 1%er vacation? Now that he’s “back”, what does he do?

(Daily Caller) With his poll ratings down, President Barack Obama is taking a two-day road trip to show sympathy for those hit hard by rising university costs during his four-and-a-half-year tenure.

The trip will allow him to make three speeches in New York on Thursday, and speak at two town halls and at one speech in Pennsylvania on Friday.

“At each stop, the President will discuss the importance of ensuring that every American has the opportunity to achieve a quality education by reducing cost and improving the value of higher education for middle-class students and their families,” a White House statement said.

Well, that’s great! Too bad there are few jobs available for all these people who get a college education, and a good chunk are low paying part time jobs.

Even if he doesn’t increase his ratings, he’s expected to use the speeches to continue his sharp invective against the GOP.

So, we should probably expect this to be the typical Neverending Campaign speeches, rather than the type one would expect from the POTUS. He’ll smear the GOP a lot, offer few ideas on how to solve the student debt crisis, then blame the GOP for failing to pass legislation that Obama hasn’t sent to Congress. This will be All About Obama, rather than any attempt to help the country. Narcissism on Display.
