How student loan servicing is an awful lot like mortgage servicing. 
 
Servicers have misapplied payments, given borrowers bad advice, and reported incorrect information to credit bureaus, according one of the new reports from the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau. 

Sound like mortgages? Nah. Student loans.

+Ben Schmidt I actually think he can win, but many things must break his way. I'm not a Romney supporter, but I like playing the pundit-game as much as the next person. Realistically, I think Romney loses by about 7-10% popular vote, but by an electoral landslide.

George W. Bush leveraged images of Sept. 11 during his reelection campaign. Obama is leveraging bin Laden's death. +Chris Cillizza on why it's fair game: http://wapo.st/Ko2bCl

After slowly easing back into Google plus for the second time, am starting to enjoy using it on my iPhone more than on web. Do any of you have a preference for the mobile app? Any mobile tips worth sharing?

+Carson Cole +Zach Murdock thanks - I noticed that with posting too. Found something on Twitter, wanted to cross post, but it shows up as a bit of a stub. But really like how easy it is to scan circles.

Who do you think will take Pennsylvania in November: +Mitt Romney or +Barack Obama ? Join +Chris Cillizza next Tuesday at noon in our first official #politics #hangout of the campaign. If you'd like to participate, leave a comment with who you are, where you're from, and how you think #pennsylvania will swing in #election2012 .
 
Do you have time to hangout? Join us at noon next Tuesday, April 24, as we discuss Pennsylvania's status as swing state in the general election.

+Chris Cillizza will bounce around some theories with people who know a thing or two about Keystone State politics.

If you'd like to hangout, leave a comment on this post (http://wapo.st/HXP9ND) telling us three things and we'll send you an invite when Tuesday rolls around:

1. Who are you?
2. Where are you from?
3. Which candidate do you think has an edge in Pennsylvania and why?

To get things flowing, we're including a map that shows which counties went for Obama and which counties went for McCain in 2008. Discuss...

Also, if you know anyone in Pennsylvania, please share this. We'd like to hear from them.

See you on Tuesday?

+Michael Gayer You wouldn't know science if Stephen Hawking were your personal tutor.

I hate to break it to you, but Mitt The Ripper (jobs killer) isn't going to fair well in the general election. Now, if it were a pandering, flip-flopping, or robotics contest he'd take 1st place.
