    A third of our college graduates are from other countries.

    Does Obama want college to expand for American students or foreigners?

    By the way!

    How's those standardized tests working out?

    Surest doesn't mean sure... or certain. Or guaranteed. I know of well educated friends with lots of student debt struggling to find well paying jobs, but I know MORE people with less education struggling harder to find jobs that make ends meet. I think that's a point the President is trying to make.

    "More than ever a college degree is the surest path to a stable middle class life,"

    Well that could be true, if the economy was good enough to support jobs for the college graduates. But alas, it is not, and qualified graduates find that there are 3 of them for every job opening. 1 in 3 will get a job, 33%. Last time I checked that is an F, big time. This administration's job policies are total failures.
