College Democrats President Nadia Lehtihet Appears on Fox News

Democrats are usually hard to find in the Fox News studios these days, but somehow, Penn State College Democrats’ President Nadia Lehtihet was able to find her way in. Lehtihet was featured on Sean Hannity’s show Friday as part of a bipartisan college forum to talk about youth perspectives on the economy and healthcare. A handful of colleges were represented, including Democrats from Harvard, Yale, NYU, Notre Dame, and of course, Penn State.

Judging by the clips, Lehtihet was one of the more ambitious panelists. You can check her out in the following three segments (Fox News won’t let us embed the videos…must be that vendetta against the liberal media):

How will this generation overcome the debt crisis? (Skip to 1:26)

What does Obamacare mean to college students?

College students take on gov’t spending, paying taxes (Skip to 2:48)

My favorite part? Lehtihet responds to a question on the national debt by saying, in part, “What President Obama and the Democratic party are not willing to do is balance the budget on the backs of the poor and the working class.”

Hannity responds, “You say this and I’m listening with fascination.”

Now that’s good television.
