Young Voters: Obama’s a Cool President, and You’re a Broke Clod Living with Mommy
Townhall.com ^ | April 29, 2012 | Doug Giles

Posted on 04/29/2012 6:14:32 AM PDT by Kaslin

Obama appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show this past week and did a slow jam with Fallon and his house band—a brilliant move by the Entertainer-in-Chief. I thought it was both funny and smart.

From a comedy perspective, it was well-written and well-performed by Obama, Fallon and The Roots. In terms of cleverness, it was shrewd in that the young people who watch Jimmy’s show probably don’t—or won’t—follow the manifold ways BHO has hammered the U.S. through his policies, and the majority of them love to laugh.

Ignorance + a Funny Bone = Ripe Pickings for the President.

So, from a propaganda angle, I believe Barack nailed a three-pointer; couch the lie between music and comedy, and boom … it won’t even touch the net! If they don’t wake up, Obama will get the same kids who bought a plate of economic crap from him in ‘08 asking for seconds in 2012 just because he’s hip.

Isn’t the definition of “insanity” voting for the same inept president and expecting a different result? Anyway ...

This means that if Romney is going to win the youth vote, given their adoration of pop culture and their ignorance of the fact that he can actually help them make money, his handlers had better bring him to hipster speed if he wants to capture this young demo’s ferret-like attention span.

Herewith are a few ideas I’ve sketched down for Mitt to get hip for the voting kiddos:

1. Have Mitt hang out with Snoop Dogg for one month so Calvin can teach him the way of the Dogg. Snoop could help make Mitt’s vocabulary cool, West Coast style. I suggest Snoop stay with him until Romney automatically refers to himself as The Mizzile Romnizzie and his campaign slogan changes from “Believe in America” to “Obama Iz You High? Becuz You’ve Jack Things Up, Dawg.”

2. Have Mitt work on his wardrobe—especially his accessories. I’m thinking he should start rocking a huge Flavor Flav-sized Moroni medallion and just own his Mormonism. Matter of fact, he should have someone dress up in head-to-toe gold like Moroni and blow a trumpet to introduce him before he speaks. Mitt should also get an attitude about his faith so that when some snarky MSNBC host maligns it he says something to the effect of, “You wanna talk smack about my religion? I hope your life insurance is paid up, punk, because I’m about to dot your eyes, home slice.” Kids love attitude. Everything smells, so attitude sells. #winning

3. Have Mitt join Ted Nugent and me for a massive skeet shoot where we switch the clay pigeons with Celine Dion CDs and have Hooters girls work the skeet towers. At the end of the shoot Mitt, Ted and I could blow up a huge Ahmadinejad mannequin with Barrett .50cals while AC/DC plays “Thunderstruck” to the 20,000 patriots in attendance.

4. Have Mitt openly take two Patrón tequila shots before each presidential debate. In addition, he should wear gold over-sized Ray-Ban Clubmasters during the contest while chewing on a cigar and belly laughing like the Joker every time Obama lies.

My thoughts behind this strategy for Mitt getting hip is that if he rivals Barack in the cool quotient then the deciding factor come November for this spry voting block might be Obama’s abysmal economic record and how he has woefully failed to deliver what he sold college kids on three-and-a-half years ago.

Yep, it might start to dawn on them that, sure, Obama is cool, he can sing a mean Al Green, and it’d be awesome to have a beer with him … but unfortunately, they can’t because:

• They’re broke.
• There are no jobs.
• They can’t drive to the pub because gas is so expensive.
• They are living in mommy’s basement.
• And their lives suck worse than Rosie O’Donnell extracting the jam out of a jelly doughnut.

This realization, in turn, might turn them off from putting the premium on cool and convince them to start examining which candidate has a better record, betwixt the twain, to stabilize our economy, stop the massive bleeding, and create jobs, wealth and opportunity. At the end of the day, a prosperous America is truly cool, and being a broke-ass college scrub, well … that sucks.

Speaking of cool, watch my latest video about Justin Bieber’s haircut here.

That would probably be more effective than having him pretend that he's a regular patron of his local 7-Eleven.

Thanks for posting. That is extremely well done and is even more effective in making the same point as Doug Giles in the article.

I hope that goes viral on the social media front ...

Just curious...If the actor Wentworth Miller became POTUS, would they be calling him "The first black President" as well??

Well just like Obama, Millers father was black and his mother white.

"Ladiiies and Gentleman, the first black President of the United states! Wentworth Miller....."

You’re welcome. I discovered it on Breitbart and subsequently found several other web videos by American Crossroads, a conservative PAC.

I was going to say that he was born in Britain and therefor not eligible. Until I read that both his parents were American Citizen. His mother was a special education teacher and his father, a Rhodes Scholar, was studying at Oxford at the time of Miller's birth.

He does have dual citizen ship though, so I don't know

Anyway here is the

both his parents were American Citizen

Which qualifies Miller to be POTUS more than Obama whose father was NOT a US citizen. On the other hand neither is Obama. I believe he was a foreign exchange student who has managed to stay here and BS people. Don't believe me? Find one shred of evidence for me that Obama is a US citizen. His birth certificate is a forgery. He was born in Kenya, he moved to Indonesia as Barry Soetoro, then came to the US as a foreign exchange student and changed his name to Barack Hussein Obama to ingratiate himself to the left. The guy is a foreign exchange student with an expired visa and shouldn't even be in the country never mind POTUS.

Oh man was that funny. This guy is as much of a hoot as P.J. O'Rouke is.

Note those on our side, are actually funny vs. the punsters on the left that are just mean. I mean even Robin Williams can't do political comedy without falling on his @$$.

I hope this filters to "Generation Cool" but my guess if it did they would be angry that they pissed away 4 years of their lives by voting for the anointed one. Either they stay home or double down. Hey with medical Mayor-J-Jawana laws loosing up, they will probably stay in the basement and be on screed looking for Oreos and Cheeto's that day and stay home.

BTW, my guess is this author is a Freeper. IMHO much of Conservative Thought is starting here on goes elsewhere.

How many of us including myself 4 years ago have said kids would vote for him because he was "Cool"...

So-called “college educated” kids can’t see that Obama is conning them big time. It’s pretty dumb when you’re the mark, and will be left holding the bag, but don’t even know it. Lincoln tried to warn people about being fooled...

Norman Mailer predicted the new dominant personality type in “The White Negro.” It is worth a read. He was shockingly accurate. He uses the word “hip” rather than “kewl.” I am unfamiliar with the term “slow jam.” Is it anything like toe jam?
