College? I believe the only time you may have seen a college was driving by from the road.

Most college students are sheeple that have been influenced and brain washed by their Marxist professors into supporting Obama. The smarter free thinking ones seem to like the ideas of Ron Paul. Just saying.

That's true, but keep in mind that this is a re-election for Obama, in other words he already has a record. Last time, many college aged students voted for "hope and change" instead of the "old guy". Lesson learned. My college aged son was one of them, and has now learned not to vote for "celebrity" but to consider the issues at hand, and that "change" can be a bad thing as well as a good thing sometimes.

College students as well as the rest of us are feeling the bite of the economy, jobs, gas prices etc. While the last batch didn't generally like Bush (the sitting GOP President), they will now consider Obama (the sitting Democrat President) with the same measure.

I have hope that many of the college students are bright enough to face reality.

I agree with you completely. The bloom is off the rose, so to speak. The youthful Obama supporters of four years ago have graduated with a tremendous burden of debt into an economy in which only the very lucky or well-connected have been able to find employment commensurate with their educations. In my area, there is no market for teachers as programs are cut, schools consolidate and retirees are not replaced. The manufacturing sector was long ago decimated and the local banks have been swallowed by the national and multi-nationals. A young waitress at a local restaurant confided that she had a degree from Notes Dame. Because of her school debt, she cannot afford to relocate. Many of my former students are also working well below their expectations in retail or maintenance. They have experienced change in their transition from the idealistic world of academia but are devoid of hope. I don't think they will be fooled again.

while at these colleges, he wanted to make a shout out to all his ponytailed ex hippie college professor buddies....you know, the ones who were going to change the world in the 60's, with their sex, drugs and rock and roll, and when that failed, they became teachers, in order to 'teach our children'
The road to ruin will be paved with the minds of children, warped from being taught by hippies.

Birthers want proof that Bishop Romney is a US citizen. I'm worried because Bishop Romney responded by saying, "Obama is a US citizen, PERIOD."

I guess he's refusing to show us, like his tax returns. Bishop Romney's dad who may have been an anchor baby, showed 12 years of his tax returns. I'm starting to wonder if Bishop Romney's hiding something with his Etch-a-Sketch.

Birthers want proof that Mitt Romney was born in America

No, you read that right. You might think birthers are crazy conspiracy theorists, but you can't say they're inconsistent. The fringe group of politicians and concerned voters who have long dogged President Obama for "proof" that he is a natural born citizen are now targeting Mitt Romney. They demand that the California Secretary of State produce evidence that Mitt is eligible to run for president. One birther explains that Romney's citizenship is up for debate because his dad was born in Mexico. Thats right, Mitt Romney's father was born in the Mexican colony that Mitt's great-grandfather founded after fleeing the United States so he could stay married to Romney's four great-grandmothers. Let's all just let that sink in for a moment.

I sure hope this cloud doesn't hang over Bishop Romney's head. I'm really hoping for an American president this time.

Which brainwashing, by the left or by the right that won't accept RON PAUL?

I won't support RON PAUL until he runs independent.

Bishop Romney is with Obama on the student loans issue where the interest rates are scheduled to double in July, if we let the free market determine the rates. I guess their both "compassionate conservatives" and like some goverment regulations. Things won't change much with Bishop Romney in charge and that's a great comfort to most Americans. Face it, we'd all get along a lot better if Obama were whiter. That's one thing Bishop Romney CAN deliver. Otherwise, I kind of trust them both to continue Bushes policies. Rubio feels the same way, but his creaminess might be his only drawback. That and only Cuban Latinos like Rubio. They weren't going to vote for a Democrat anyway.

President Obama has proven that he is the champion for young adults and college students… and you can see that that group is all in with their support for him with the enthusiastic greetings he receives every time he speaks on a college campus.
