“Just because someone borrowed a bunch of money doesn’t mean they have to pay it back,” he explained to a friendly crowd at Scranton University. “This isn’t 19th century England. This is America. And in America we’ve always believed in second chances.
“We need colleges to teach our young people useful skills like sociology, gender studies and postmodern Moldovan literary analysis. But the most important thing we need to teach them is responsibility. And what better way to teach responsibility than to hold these banks accountable for the terrible loans they’ve made.”
Nope, it can’t:
You’d think that by now, most everyone would’ve realized that the satirical Daily Currant doesn’t traffic in truth. Not only has Twitchy pointed that out several times, but it says so right on the DC’s site: “Our stories are purely fictional.” Doesn’t get much more straightforward than that.
Unless you’re one of many gullible Obama supporters (but we repeat ourselves). If that’s the case, this happens:
