    Saying the economy is recovering, Romney encourages young Americans to take economic risks - The Washington Post

    “We’ve always encouraged young people — take a shot, go for it, take a risk and get the education, borrow money if you have to from your parents, start a business.”


    Sage advice Romney. But tell us, who do 99% of our parents borrow the money from, since they don't have any either?

    Oh, and thanks for admitting the economy is recovering. I thought your campaign platform was contingent on the economy not recovering. We can always count on you for a flip-flop.

    Well, considering the government put a cap on the number of small business loans banks can make, I guess borrowing from family is the only option. Why would they do that when it hurts the average person? We need to get small businesses going because that is how we create jobs, something this administration isn't all too interested in.

    The best thing parents can do for their children is to secure their own future. A lot of people my age didn't do that because the boomers are a 'live for the moment' generation.

    I paid for my children to go to college. Given the straits this country is in right now, it wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit if the government did away with ALL student aid, and if the only financial assistance out there were to be for students who excel. I don't agree with pissing government money away on 'C' students, and God knows, I've seen my share of it.

    Does he state anywhere that parents withut means MUST comply?
    This is more Class Warfare shit.

    Romney's father came from NOTHING on his terms because HE had the liberty to do so...and COULD give his son that which he worked hard to provide his prodginy.

    The OP is an idiot folks.

    Nothing but Class Warfare to see here. Move along.:eusa_hand:

    Well, it worked for him.
    And it worked for his kids.

    Can't you just see it?

    "Hey dad - I need a $half-mil to go to college."

    "Sure kid, bottom left hand drawer of my desk."

    Mitt just can't help himself. Listen to what he says. Constant insults and put-downs. Always the smug and condescending look down his nose like he can't wait to wash his hands. He never misses a change to tell us that he's loaded, that he's better than us and that he's looking forward to having us work for him and the rest of the One Percenters.

    One thing I've noticed in all his flip flops and lies is the one thing that never changes is his plan to steal from the poor and give to the rich.

    "corporations are people, my friends" Remember when your skin itched every time McCain said, "my friends" because you just knew he was lying. That's the feeling you should be getting when Mittens The Puppet tells us about his "friends, the corporations" with the names, Norquist, Rove, Koch ...

    Well, the one thing Mr Etch A Sketch is not lying about is what he has said about is raising taxes on the rest of us so he can give a 4 times bigger tax break to his cronies.

    Are you kidding? Barry has been borrowing money from our grand kids to finance his schemes.

    Yep, you're right.
    And, its the middle/working/poor class that is losing.

    Here we go again with rw's telling us why we should vote against ourselves and our families.

    WAKE UP.
    Turn off fux and lush and the others who work FOR the 1%.

    (That is, unless YOU are part of the 1%.)
