Conservative obfuscation on student loans

As Clayton Henkel reports above, President Obama was in the state today to press his case for renewing federal student loan laws that will keep interest rates at least semi-affordable for students. Meanwhile, in a rather remarkable bit of rhetorical gymnastics, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner tried to blame the Prez and Democrats for the fact that loan rates will go up without congressional action — action that Boehner and his buddies have been trying to stop!

Fortunately, Steve Benen puts Boehner in his place at the Maddow blog.

    I support the down trodden like Rachael Burgin and Ortega. Where are Rob, Chris, Sarah in supporting people who have been sexual harrassed and infected with aids? Why are the NC Democrat and DNC not being investigated by the Defenders of Freedom? I know they are fighting the war against women, advocating for the poorly paid(Ortega was paid $20,000.00 per year) student loans, poor education, George Bush and Tom Tillis. Go Team for Freedom. You have our backs.

    Boehner flip flopped as soon as he heard Romney was flip flopping on this issue.

    Her ratings are so low that I figured everyone was tired of her. The only one below her is the Reverend Sharpton. His ratings fell 50% when one of his good friends stopped tuning in.
