Lynchburg, Virginia (CNN) – A banner reading "GOP = Higher school debt" trailed a plane flying above the Liberty University commencement, where presumptive GOP nominee Romney was to speak Saturday morning.

The left-leaning group MoveOn.org hired the plane and banner, the group said in a statement.

    How can any of you say "4 more years of solid leadership" with a straight face? What sort of leadership has this President shown? He panders to everyone to get votes. He puts his ideology above common sense and what's good for the country. You liberals no longer have any credibility calling Romney a "flip-flop". Your President just flipped flopped in a major way with the gay marriage thing. But are you still going to call his flip flopping "evolution" like all the cool-aid drinker out there? When the GOP change their mind, you call it flip flopping, but when the Democrat change their mind you call it "evolution". You liberals and the main stream media has shown your true ignorance self. Americans are not that stupid, it was a mistake to elect Obama once, we won't make that same mistake again.

    Student loan debt isn't a problem for the wealthy.. neither is Social Securty or Medicare. Romney and his fat-cat friends plan to kill all three programs.

    Still wonder why Moveon is not classified a hate group, After all that is all the liberals know, is hate.

    With these two (2) parties running against each other – you can bet – it will be a long time before any real reform.

    Smiles. Romney true character is coming out...in more ways then one. However, his stance on adoption is appropriate and shows some compassion for children in need of a stable family.

    Too bad he is afraid of the ultra conservatives on his side of the platform..After reading some of the hate filled and ugly comments in here, wonder if he would be pleased to know he has some of these same people are following him...

    Most serious politicians would be quickly distancing themselves.....

    Panderer in chief at it again through his back door organizations. Don't worry about paying for school, he'll take care of that too with our budget surplus.

  9. Are you kidding me?

    They should fly messages around Wisconsin and Ohio as well to target the members of the GOP congress who are wrecking havoc on our country.

    Hooray! Romney needs to be reminded everywhere he goes that his "wonderful budget" takes away from the poor, the elderly, the differently abled, anyone not like him. President Obama's announcement this week was masterful and again portrayed Romney and the Republicans as the bullys that they are. Small tent with high membership fees–
