Skip to comments.Young people have bailed on Obama. Why that matters a lot.
Posted on 12/05/2013 6:14:10 AM PST by PROCON
One of President Obama's chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America's youth fawning over the president are over.
A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public's.

Consider though, that something could happen (civil unrest/ false flag event) and martial law ensues whereby the elections are suspended.
But have they bailed on their love affair with socialism?
Or are they just disappointed in Obama because they thought that he’d be the one they’d been waiting for to implement it “right”?
I still want them to suffer ten more years for their stupidity. They turned off their brains in the name of liberal idealism. They should feel the effects of such actions until they’ll never forget.
We can hope and pray that your scenario will play out!
An armed society is a polite society..........
so what? they’ll just go for hillary, saying it’s time for a woman to be president, wake me when America runs through the long line of ‘thisgroupdeservesachancetobepresident’s.
I sense the entertainment-soaked youth of America will simply go for the next clown who can be turned into a hollywood-political celebrity while running for office.
As I posted elsewhere, I believe it is the dream of conservatives everywhere that hardcore true believers in socialism be subjected to the consequences of their ideology without affecting the rest of us.
About the only way that can happen is with strict application of the 10th amendment. Or secession.
Revolt will still come, Americans are ARMED to the teeth.
Prediction: Hillary will not run, simply because for one of two reasons, by 2016, she will either have health issues or focus her new title: grandmother.
Have they figured out the less than 30 hour work week.
Have they figured out the huge premiums they will pay are for other peoples benefits (not theirs)?
Have they figured out the FINES ARE TO FORCE THEM TO PAY THE HUGE PREMIUMS yet?
>> We can hope and pray that your scenario will play out!
Praying’s good. GOD works in mysterious ways, but boldly asking Him for what we need is what He expects from us.
He said so! :-)
Obamacare is worse than a student loan, it will tie their hands financially for the rest of their lives.
You don’t have to be so smart to figure that out.
Your anger is misdirected, IMHO. The media colleges/universities propagandized the h$ll out of our youth. They were gullible and swallowed the lies hook, line and sinker. Why can't we find a way to punish the media and colleges/universities?
On the other hand, they may have just created a generation of life-long conservatives that never vote for a democrat again? (okay, so I can dream)
I pray that the America I grew up in and love will survive this administration.
Similar to youth sobering up during Carter years. Vote like a fool, graduate, no jobs, suddenly awake.
The only way to fix them is to send each and every one of them on a one-year sabbatical before age 25 to their choice of a) North Korea or b) Cuba.
I spent 7 months in remote regions of Red China in the mid-70s when I was 25 years old. The school of hard knocks works wonders.
I agree with your premise about subjecting socialists directly to their own stupidity, but I’m not in favor of succession, and the trouble with the 10th amendment is that liberals are free to cross state boundaries and take their idiotic voting patterns with them.
Sometimes the only solution is to let liberals burn their own cities to the ground with mismanagement as an example, and hope there are enough intelligent voters to notice causation
With three generations of sheep indoctrinated in government union run schools, I have my doubts as to whether the ‘yuts’ have the capacity to make that leap.
Responsible people (conservatives) always end up paying for the consequences of liberal ideas, ie, baling out the cities for their mismanagement,
and the liberals don’t learn.
Well....that assumes he’ll abide by the rule of law, not ignore Congress, not just reinterpret the law, not just issue everything by Exec Order, etc....
I’m sure he’d just put the “blame the GOP” into high gear and say “somebody has to do something, this isn’t what the American people want, system is broken!”, etc...then just do what he wants.
They are bailing because they've figured out that they are the people Obama is counting on to finance this thing. (They thought it was a great program when they were still under the impression it was being paid for with other people's money.)
“I spent 7 months in remote regions of Red China in the mid-70s when I was 25 years old. The school of hard knocks works wonders.”
Must be an interesting story given the era and the location
Still leaves the question open - have they determined that it can’t work with “other people’s money” because there’s not enough of it,
or do they just think that Obama screwed up the implementation,
or worse, that Obama could have gotten it right if given enough power to implement it the “right way”.
That last one is usually the one they fall to,
and that’s super-scary.
Sounds more like many of them have finally graduate from college and don’t like living in dad and mom’s basement.
They thought they were getting a free lunch, until Obama handed them the check.
Or are they just disappointed in Obama because they thought that hed be the one theyd been waiting for to implement it right?
You're exactly correct! These indoctrinated, state-schooled "yutes" still buy into the religion & ideology of socialist/left-wing/marxist hogwash. Even if they are momentarily soured on 0dumb0, they will still pull the lever for left-wing socialism by voting the demoCRAP party line at every level of city/county/district/state/congressional rep/ senator officials. It takes a near conversion experience for someone to vote conservative (or even republican) once they buy into the demoCRAP party line.
My phat ass sister-in-law is the same way. Six years after 0dumb0 has been in office, she is still blaming Republicans (just like 0dumb0 is) for basically not giving 0dumb0 & the RATS a blank check to spend as much as they claim they need. In her phat-ass mind, the only reason 0dumb0Care is not working the way it was promised by RATs & 0dumb0 is because the Repubs haven't folded on every spending bill. She could pay premiums of $50,000 annually with no deductibles, and she would STILL pull the lever for 0dumb0 & the RATs.
As Michael Savage so aptly described it, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder!
*****theyll just go for hillary, saying its time for a woman to be president,...****
Which is why it must be pointed out by Hillary’s adversaries; for the past 5 and the next 3 years - America has had a woman-President. Her name is Valerie Jarrett!!!!!
It will take the entire country at least ten more years to recover from our collective stupidity. The military, at least a generation.
If you don't think so, just look at Iran. That's Jimmy Carter's legacy.
Winnowing is needed for dim-0-crat and especially RINOs.
"Freedom of the press doe not mean freedom from truth"
Health issues? Maybe.
Grandmother? No way. Any grandkids would be useful stage props in her quest for power.
Take this test to determine you are a Millennial:
My score was: “Your Millennial score is 0”
How Millennial Are You?
Take our 14 item quiz and well tell you how “Millennial” you are, on a scale from 0 to 100, by comparing your answers with those of respondents to a scientific nationwide survey. You can also find out how you stack up against others your age.
Amen! Bring it on. We need TX & OK, along with 10-12 other Southern or Western states to finally declare enough is enough, and secede. I would gladly join that group of states. I am convinced that such a move would succeed because now we know how evil that 0dumb0 & the RATs are, plus his new metrosexual/homo/lesbian army would cry & wilt & run away in the first battle.
Tx, Ok, Ks, Nb... right up the middle.
I wouldn’t be so quick to assume that the “yout” vote will go R. I fear they will just turn off to politics altogether. At least until such time as they become working heads of households with a coupla kids, i.e., grownups.
“Youts” are far more socially liberal than would align with the GOP. They perceive the GOP/conservatives as old scolds. We’re just NOT cool.
I hope you’re right about that but the Republican track record doesn’t inspire much in the way of confidence. Even with a majority, they’ll go right back to what they do best: caving and appeasing.
Agree. They need to experience a hellish world of their own making. Without conservatives to blame and pay for their excesses, a pure liberal community would self-destruct in short order.
Due to irreconcilable cultural, economic and philosophical differences between libs and conservatives, some form of secession seems inevitable. Its not hard to guess which side would be the ultimate winner as a societal model.
That may be a bridge too far. lol
They’ll glom onto the next socialist, natural law rejecting, gimmee free stuff democrat faster than a drug-addled single mother gets a new sex partner.
That is the wrong approach.
They are kids, they are enmeshed in academia who tell them whom to vote for.
Raise the voting age to 21.
This makes him very dangerous......
I do think they’re done with Obama.
Won’t matter, they’re still socialist.
They’ll go whole hog for the next democrat, who, as a surprise to the GOP, will attack Obama and could be worse.
Raise the voting age.
I’m not convinced she won’t run, but I am convinced that Chelsea will have a precisely timed pregnancy to coincide with the 2016 election. And, the corrupt MSM will be on pins and needles detailing every single crumb of information on Chelsea’s pregnancy — similar to Kate Middletons. Bank on it!
In fact, if Chelsea could time it so she has the baby the day or week before the election would not surprise me one bit. With the Clintons, absolutely nothing is wasted when it comes to advancing their political interests, no person, no event, nothing.
Hillary’s main constituency is loud, older women. Young people just joke about her, as they joke about everything else.
Taking away his VETO pen is another matter.
