It’s a near-perfect metaphor: We’ve got Congress in debt up to its eyeballs and the President’s cutting the cost of government subsidized student loans.
 
It’s classic. And unstoppable.
 
Just before the election Obama’s going to make millions of new friends: He’s going to lower their student loan debts by increasing the government debts and there won’t be a politician in sight who’ll say a discouraging word.

I predict the widespread and deep unemployment and underemployment will not be abated by economic growth. People need jobs for psychological and social reasons not just the income. Playing the victim's role comes natural to Obama, so there will be a deadly blame game. Republicans need to stay on message.
