Romney: College students should borrow from their parents and start a business

Seriously. This is not an SNL skit. That's what Mitt Romney told a group of college students. If you are worried about a job after college, borrow $20,000 or $30,000 from your parents and start a business. My father was dead so I really couldn't ask him, but I really missed the boat not asking my mom who went back to work when he died and worked as a secretary til she was 70 where she was hiding all that loot for my small business. I should have mentioned in the letters with the money from my part-time job that I sent back home to her to help with her bills. My mistake. I've heard Mitt Romney say a lot of incredibly stupid things, but this has to be the stupidest. How could he be so stupid as to actually believe this is real advice for normal people? Just as importantly, even if he thinks that sounds reasonable, how could the campaign be so incompetent as to let him say it in public?
