The political issue is whether or not to increase the interest rate on student loans. A large segment of our young population has a stake in the outcome. Our president makes effective use of social media to take this matter to the public for support. This is not a new strategy for President Obama. He ran an effective campaign by utilizing this powerful communication medium far better than his opponents. And it’s clear he has not lost his edge in this regard.
The video, entitled “Jimmy Fallon – Slow Jam The News with Barack Obama: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” is on YouTube. The surprise appearance has the audience going wild. But the slow jam in which Obama participates is a must see!
As someone who had to finance her own way through college, grad school and computer programming school, I understand the need to obtain affordable loans. I hope that Obama’s efforts prevail on this initiative. And bravo to him for enlightening U.S. citizens to the struggle, so that they can make their opinion heard.
