Conservative obfuscation on student loans

As Clayton Henkel reports above, President Obama was in the state today to press his case [1] 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 [2].
