I know one person for sure - he said he was young and got caught up in the hype. He’s an econ PhD student and Obambi’s economic polices are making him crazy.
I’ll say this - I’m a professor with all grad students. I try to keep politics out of the classroom, but during the election, I had an idea that a good number of students were for Obambi, based on casual conversation, stickers, pins, etc. Obambi came here several times and students would talk about his visit.
What I find interesting is that they don’t talk about him at all. You’d think that if they were happy with him, they’d be talking about how pleased they were with this or that. They don’t even talk about the student loan stuff. I bet that many of those that bother to vote, will not be voting for the child king this time around.
It sounds as if maybe there's some real economics being taught there, and not just rent-seeking worship of the State.
