Vice-President Biden To Give Education Speech In Bucks County On Friday

By Elyse Clonan, Contributing Writer

The White House Press Office has announced that Vice President Joe Biden will visit Central Bucks High School West in Doylestown this upcoming Friday, January 13th.  Biden will be joined by Deputy Secretary of Education, Tony Miller.

The Vice President plans to address a pertinent topic that seems to be on every high schooler’s mind these days: college.  According to the press release, 70% of Pennsylvania students rely on loans to finance their college education and graduate with an average of more than $28,000 worth of debt.

Together with Deputy Secretary Miller, Biden will discuss the importance of attaining a college education and the actions the Obama Administration has undertaken over the past few years to ensure that higher education remains affordable; and call on colleges and universities to contain costs.

“I thought it was exciting when Gov. Ed Rendell and Lt. Gov. (James) Cawley visited…but this is another level,”  said CB West Principal Kevin Munnelly to

Superintendent N. Robert Laws said Biden is “very charismatic” and that he believes “this is something they’ll remember a lot longer than any final they take in any class.”

However, news of the Vice President’s impending visit has Obama opponents up in arms.  Republican activists seemingly wasted no time in declaring Biden’s visit to be a political maneuver in a crucial battleground state.

“Vice President Biden can try to spin President Obama’s record of broken promises and failed policies all he wants,” says Republican National Committee spokesman Ryan Tronovitch, “but with every visit to Pennsylvania, they remind voters how much worse off they are.”

Valerie Caras of the PA GOP seems to share Tronovitch’s sentiments. “The numbers don’t lie.  Joe Biden can’t talk his way out of President Obama’s failed record…Pennsylvania voters are fed up with this President and his administration and are eager to vote for a Republican presidential candidate who will deliver results, not more of the same old tired rhetoric”

“The can call it what they want,” Principal Munnelly said in response to Biden’s critics.
