Skip to comments.Many young Obama voters are getting a taste of the real world.

I can't help but think that many of the *idealist* (dopey) young people who voted for Obama must be getting the shock of their young lives. Many college students who voted for Obama were only children when 9/11 happened, it may not have been real to them but THIS is their 9/11, they will not forget it.
The massive coverage that the Boston Marathon bombing has had has penetrated their little air-head experience of tweeting, social media and celebrities. Maybe they will be more grown up and sober people next time they vote.
If they were stupid enough to vote for him, they’re too stupid to put two and two together to figure out this is his fault.
Lets hope so although most will be older but no wiser.
To most of those dopey kids the Boston Marathon events occurred solely in the context of Twitter and Facebook and does not alter their outlook on anything other than to reinforce it.
I think most of them are getting more of education when they try looking for a job.
The public education system makes certain the minds it produces are incapable of critical thought.
In short, the majority of the young (Mostly college educated/hold their Professor's words as Gospel) are still clueless and will continue to be.
They are now on welfare and need assistance from the government or are owned by the government because of thousands of dollars of student loans.....
Romney could have helped. He could have reacted to his loss by saying: “Good luck finding a job”
They are getting a taste of the real world when the only job they can get is retail sales at minimum wage with $100,000 in student loans...
Be careful what you hope for. Morons.
Yes, kid, you can be a moron, fool, and loser in school, but once that diploma’s in hand, your stupidity becomes counterproductive very quickly.
That would have made a fine concession speech; very inspiring as well.
Remember the street interviews in which zero voters, when asked is they thought it was good that zero was sending the sequester to Portugal, responded basically saying yes - if zero is doing it then it must be a good idea.
I wonder if any of these people later found out how elfin stupid they are?
There is the college world and then there is the real world.
“I have food, shelter, clothing, and subsidies provided by the benevolent government until Der Leader finishes fixing the economy.”
what a waste.... drowned in regulations that will no doubt be around for at least two (probably more) generations.
and he screwed up my sweet life.... I wanted to see what would happen after computers and landing on the moon.... all I get now is iphones.
If you Voted for Obama and you can read this, (which is debatable), BACK UP! You're obviously too stupid to Drive that close to me.
A little wordy, but I'll tighten it up.
But they blame it on the "greed of the 1%'ers" - they haven't learned a thing.
Most believe Obammy was directing the cops and FBI. Most believe that Bush master minded 9-11.
My oldest graduated college in December. A semester early.
She took the hardest courses available, often calling us at home crying, but she toughed it out.
She lettered in her sport 3 out of 4 years. The one year she didn’t letter was because of an injury.
This past November she voted in her first Presidential election, standing in line for six hours to vote in the screwed up Richland County, SC election.
She moved to DC 2 months ago with no job, no prospects and immediately landed a temp job with a major corporation and has worked every weekend in a restaurant as a waitress.
Two weeks ago she landed a permanent position with a consulting firm. Her new boss told her one reason he hired her was because of the rigor of her undergraduate course work, and because she completed a research project and was invited to present her findings as a podium presentation at a regional research conference. Last night she thanked us for advising her to take the hard courses.
Because she doubled her temp pay she gave the restaurant not 2 but 3 weeks notice. She said they were great to her and she doesn’t want to leave the short.
She will start Grad school in the fall to study statistical analysis.
Oh, BTW in November she voted Republican.
She detested the Occupy Movement.
She IS NOT one of the young Obama voters.
This warms the cockles of my heart. I don’t know what cockles means but I hope I spelled it correctly.
I wish the GOP would run ads on pop radio that Obama used you and doesn’t care about you.
Put it in context of a person who has come around, “I feel like a sucker. Like I was conned. I feel so violated.”
My husband was in a conversation in the grocery store line with a friend. They were talking about the past weeks events. A woman in her twenties chimed into the conversation. She claimed that it “we won”.
Pop radio is good but it is out of the control of the individual but -—twitter is in our control. :^D
What did she mean by “we won”?
Almost anybody under 30 has a double handicap:
1)lifetime in progressive controlled schools
2)get information from progressive controlled media and internet portals
Husband and friend were talking to each other about how terrible it was and the carnage, that we were facing more attacks because of Obamas negligence. She was upset with their conversation, said that the guys were dead and caught, and we won.
Congrats on your daughter's perseverance and budding success.
It is heartening to hear of those in next generation who carry on the traditions and retain the character that built our country and made it great.
Our grandson in grade school already knows that not only do we have a massive failure in the White House, but why he is a failure. He knows history that is not taught in his school and knows how to get top grades without buying into the PC mush that is presented as fact and knowledge.
We have high hopes for him.
Someone please show me an example in the past 18 years of a national role model", a hero, someone to look up to, that speaks of the greatness and virtues of what made this country great. Today, who do they inspire to be come like?
only children when 9/11 happened, it may not have been real to them but THIS is their 9/11, they will not forget it.
***I doubt it. 3 people died versus 2100 in 9/11
80,000 pot heads got a good scare in CO. I couldn’t help but laugh. Wonder if some good guys shot a couple of rounds into the ground near by to give them a dose of reality.
“the world a better place knowing that you have instant access to view your friends twitter account when they are describing their current bowel movement.”
ugh... yes that makes my life complete...
Due to their current public schooling, both secondary and post, they are far too ignorant to learn from their mistakes. They have also been indoctrinated to believe they are owed everything without work. Their collective hubris is astounding.
I’ve noticed that most of the black students in NYC high schools that I’ve encountered have a hair-trigger mouth about their “rights”. You tell them, “Please remove your hat” or “You are not allowed to do ___”, immediately they spew, “It’s because I’m black!” out of their mouths. If you deny them anything at all or tell them about anything which restricts them from doing what they want, this is what you hear. They also believe that it is the teacher’s responsibility to supply them with paper and pens. They come to school without the basic tools with which to learn, they pay little to no attention to lessons, being too busy trying to sneak their cell phones out, they cut classes and wander the halls in herds, but they are the first to open their mouths about “their rights” when they predictably fail due to their own behaviors. I would say that their indoctrination comes from Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, et al.
Young blacks are crippled by black culture.
There are a few wise black people who say phooey to that stuff, our own Windflier among them. (Courtesy ping)
You have described attributes of Africa society in general. Only a few persons from that hodge pod of humans want to understand why other cultures have progessed over hundreds of years.
Many exceptions being those who have become Christian at the witness of missionaries. Christianity is a sane belief system and the Holy Spirit cuts through a thicket of bondage spirits.
Far too many, however, aren't like Windflier.
And it's a damn shame...
Preference of racial affinity over godly moral norms is something that is a problem with multiple races. However spiritual factors can either mitigate or aggravate.
to their credit
voted 55% for Obama in 2008
voted 51% for Romney in 2012
so they did learn ...some
under 30 vote aggregate...for Obama...2008 66%....2012 60%
by contrast...just to show ..
1972 race..peak of boomer and pre boomer hippies/yippies
53% overall voted for Richard Nixon...46% for McGovern
the left stole our youth the past 40 years
And to follow on to my own thought... would it be altogether nonsensical (if one believes in classic Christian angelology and demonology) if evil spirits from Africa drifted to these shores too and had in mind the spoliation of the black race. Because none of this stuff is conducive to either the honor or the well being of people of the black race.
So-called 'black culture' is deeper and wider than the ugliness in media reports, and the antics of Sharpton, Jackson, et all, might lead you to believe.
Having grown up in that culture, I can tell you that it's true that most blacks have been systematically herded into a degraded and hateful mindset, but none of that originated within the culture itself. Most of the ill behavior you see coming out of the black community (and that includes the racists in the White House) has been insidiously indoctrinated into those people by the far left.
That said, there yet remains a pro-survival side of that culture that you won't see unless you're immersed in it. It's there, but it doesn't make news like violent mobs of black teens attacking whites, or racist statements by so-called black 'leaders'.
I won't argue that the black community has become pathologically toxic for the most part, but I will try to inform people that not all blacks are lost to the illness that infects most of them.
Thanks for the kind word. I agree with you...it is a damn shame.
Sorry, but many of this current generation (and older liberals) will point to the fact that “the president made sure the terrorists were caught”.
How do I know this? It’s the first thing my uber-liberal sister said to me. My retort was to tell her that guy has never been able to resist making every news item about him.
The FBI made sure that the terrorists were caught, Obama just gave speaches.
