Ron Paul's Student Loan Position Discussed on Fox News' the Five

I'm looking for video, but Fox News' the Five just showed a clip of Paul on Hannity discussing student loans. Two of the panelists were backing him up. Bob Beckle was defending Obama's new student loan plan. Not that it matters, other than showing how scared the establishment is, but Beckle stated: "It doesn't matter because this is Ron Paul and he's not going to get elected because... he's Ron Paul."

On the positive note: the news is talking about Paul and his statements all the time during regular segments from what I've seen.

Ron Paul says it may be illegal....

The video you need is Obama's speach in CO this afternoon so you can see it from his mouth:

Obama Says He’ll Bypass Congress to Get Elements of Jobs Plan
QBy Kate Andersen Brower - Oct 26, 2011 9:41 AM PT .
Business ExchangeBuzz up!DiggPrint Email ...President Barack Obama accused Republicans in Congress of rejecting measures that would revive hiring in the U.S., saying “bold action” is needed to boost economic growth.

“There are some in Washington who don’t seem to share the same sense of urgency” about the economy, he told a crowd of mostly students at the University of Colorado’s Denver campus. “How can you say no to creating jobs when so many people are looking for work?”

Obama spoke at the last event on a three-day trip through Western states aimed at driving a message that he would sidestep an “increasingly dysfunctional” Congress and take administrative action to help create jobs.

The president is laying out measures he can take without congressional approval, including altering a program to help homeowners refinance underwater mortgages and the steps to help ease the burden of student loans.

Ron Paul says Obama’s student debt plan is possibly illegal

Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, speaks at the National Press Club in Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2011. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)GOP presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul said President Obama’s new plan to reform student loans through executive order is potentially illegal during a radio interview Wednesday.

Speaking in Denver, Obama announced new executive actions to ease student debt burdens. Obama also said he wants to enact the plan next year, rather than in 2014, when it was originally slated to go into effect. (RELATED: Obama aids debt-ridden college students)

In a radio interview with the Mike Church show, Paul said Obama’s plan relies on an illegal use of executive orders.

“That is what’s wrong,” Paul said. “Now, they’ve been doing it for years because technically all regulations written by the executive branch are illegal. Executive orders other than those functions that you’re permitted to do as president, they are illegal. They can’t legislate that way.”

Obama’s actions, Paul said, were part of a continuing trend of unconstitutional offenses, such as his military intervention in Libya and the assassination of U.S. citizens suspected of involvement with terrorist organizations.

“I would say that this is more dangerous because he’s blatant about it,” Paul said. “He’s, you know, they go to war without declaration. But this thing going into Libya, he was very blatant about it. He said, ‘I don’t need to tell you. I get my orders from NATO and the United Nations.’”




this isn't good news because

this isn't good news because to the average voter, when they hear that a politician wants to get rid of student loans, they gasp in disbelief. The average person is not a political junkie like we are here. They do not understand Ron Paul's stances on complex issues.

And it is no surprise to me that Fox News would just so happen to run that little discussion an hour before Ron appears at 6pm. The media is so blantantly bias that Stevie Wonder could see it.

All of the panelists

minus Beckle ... supported Paul's position. That's the good news I was referring to.

Did you watch the clip?

If not I advice you to reserve your judgment on the nature of it until you do so.
