I think this is a land of opportunity for every single person, every single citizen of this great nation. I want to make sure we keep America a place of opportunity, where everyone has a fair shot, they get as much education as they can afford, with their time they’re able to get it, and if they have a willingness to work hard and the right values, they ought to have a shot at realizing their dreams.

Mitt Romney claiming Americans should be able to achieve their dreams, just as long as they have the “right values” and the ability to afford it.

Yes, Mitt. Do tell us what “right values” you mean.

In other news, Congress passed a bill to keep student loan rates from doubling, plus an oft-spiked transportation bill that will keep millions working, and which did not include the Keystone XL Pipeline because Republicans removed it, and also renewed federal flood insurance. Essentially, for a day, the U.S. Congress worked.

And my twitter feed blew up because Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced and Instagram was broken.

Pay attention, folks. Or else we’ll wind up with Mittens.
