I must admit that after Mitt Romney's victory lap speech on Tuesday night, I was impressed with the guy. Even though it was mostly substanceless political niceties balanced with a hearty dose of empty thought calories, Romney didn't appear robotic and distant. He even managed to muster some passion. But gaffe-free streak was to be short-lived, as today he reverted back into the "you're all just jealous of me for pooping gold bullion" narrative and encouraged college students to find success by borrowing money from their parents. I take it he's a fan of Girls, then?
So if parents do this, funneling their savings and going into debt to put their kids through school and fund businesses, and then their kids aren't totally successful and thus able to pay off the debt their folks accrued on their behalf will the Repubs heckle the parents for not choosing more practical and less expensive offspring?
