Obama, student loans + Twitter = #Dontdoublemyrate gold


Whoopsies! Yet another hash tag fail for Team Obama. Fresh on the heels of his ludicrous and transparently pandering speech at the University of North Carolina, comes yet another embarrassment.

If Congress doesn’t act, more than 7 million students will pay double the interest on their student loans starting July 1. #DontDoubleMyRate

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) April 24, 2012

WH assumes it's a good thing when their hashtags trend. Bad idea. It usually just means it's become a viral joke. #dontdoublemyrate

Yep. Panderer-in-Chief + whining adult children = comedy gold in the form of #dontdoublemyrate. No matter how hard some in the media try to spin it.

The White House does seem to have chosen a hashtag, #dontdoublemyrate, that's a lot harder to spoof

Guess again, Ben Smith!

#dontdoublemyrate because I majored in a faux social science and have no chance of paying it back!

Obamacare doubled my insurance premiums #dontdoublemyrate

I paid my student loans back w/out any breaks. Now I'll have to pay for these idiots because they failed Econ 101? #dontdoublemyrate

#dontdoublemyrate because those without debt are responsible for my actions

Even Speaker Boehner weighs in.

With student loan mess, Democrats are reaping what they sowed http://t.co/5SkvDVa9 #dontdoublemyrate

— Speaker John Boehner (@SpeakerBoehner) April 24, 2012

Bingo. Also reaping what they have sown? The “youth vote” who came out for Obama. Be careful what you wish for, kids. You probably didn’t learn that in college.

Dear @BarackObama, how much higher do my electric bills have to get? My grocery bills? My medical bills? #DontDoubleMyRate

Why should people who worked hard to pay off their college loans be forced to pay off other people's too? #DontDoubleMyRate #JustRaiseTaxes
