Yep, says what his listeners want to hear. He doesn't care what is actually happening or. Going to happen.

Thank God he will be gone in four years. Hope we can salvage the country......if there's anything left by then to salvage.

“When I’m president, I will make college affordable for every American.” -- President Obama, 2008

Any student who voted for President Obama--in either 2008 or 2012--in order to cut their college costs was sold a bill of goods. In Obama’s first four years, national tuition prices rose 25 percent and average graduating loan debt rose 16 percent.

Now, the Obama-signed sequester (aka “fiscal cliff”) includes an 8.2 percent cut in non-Pell student aid, an across-the-board cut of more than $140 million. Student loan origination fees will also go up $91 million.
