Obama No Longer Rockin' The Vote with the Young?

imwithstupid.jpg

Unemployed young people can't move out of their parents' houses with Hope and Change credit cards.

In 2008, Obama had a 34-point advantage over Republican Sen. John McCain among voters younger than 30. He won about two-thirds of the vote in that age group.

But a new Harvard poll suggests the president could face a more difficult sales job with younger voters this time around. Obama led Romney by 12 points among those ages 18-24, according to the survey. Among those in the 25-29 age group, Obama held a 23-point advantage.

The picture above is of a Colorado University student who got a funny picture snapped with the president on one of his seventeen bazillion political trips.

She says Obama is a "wonderful dude." But when asked by optimistic Obama-boosters on CNN if she'll be voting for him, she says "Um" and claims she has some principle against saying who she'll be voting for on TV.

Which means, in all likelihood, she's not voting for him.

The anchorettes pretend they're happy to hear she won't reveal her voting preference, but I can't help think they're butthurt that the girl spoiled their Obama-loving party.

Humor from Conan: Not really an attack on Obama, exactly, but at least it's not fellating him.

30 SEALs reach out to increase diversity
By Gidget Fuentes - Staff writer
Posted : Monday Apr 30, 2012 8:14:13 EDT
SAN DIEGO — The Navy’s special warfare community has grown in size over the past few years but still remains overwhelmingly white. It’s a statistic officials are working hard to change.

Today’s force of SEALs and SWCCs, or special warfare combatant-craft crewmen, is roughly 85 percent white, according to Naval Special Warfare Command in Coronado, Calif. That’s much higher than the Navy overall — which in 2010 was about 64 percent white, according to the Defense Manpower Data Center — and is also out of whack with the cultural environments in which today’s SEALs operate.

That gap remains despite concerted efforts by Naval Special Warfare Command to seek more minority candidates and expand its overall recruiting pitch to get more SEALs and SWCCs to fill the larger force mandated by Congress. But as the community grew in size, the command also beefed up standards and requirements during the 26-week SEAL Qualification Training, causing graduation rates to drop across all ethnicities.

“Where we stand today is, we have more work to do,” said Capt. Duncan Smith, a SEAL who heads Naval Special Warfare Command’s recruiting directorate.

“We absolutely have a need for operational diversity. For us to train with our special operations partner nations, our mission is more easily accomplished if we have people with the cultural and racial identities that allow us to create lasting relationships to better understand our partner forces,” Smith said

Oh bullshit. Just get the best people. What ever happened to that principal?

37 On my way into work I listened to a podcast of Milt Rosenberg's WGN-AM radio show. He was taking calls about the election, just asking people who they were going to vote for and why.

1 or 2 people said there were voting for Romney because of the economy, and a LOT of people said they were voting for Obama but were completely incoherent regarding why.

The handful of people who weren't completely incoherent about their Obama support spoke only in terms of class warfare rhetoric.

And of course there were the handful of "a pox on both their houses!" Ron Paul numbnuts types who don't want Obama re-elected but really don't want to vote for Mitt Romney.

I'm thinking we might be boned. I had no idea there were still so many stupid people running around blind to the damage Obama has been doing.

Also, if you have ever known or had contact with actual news reporters, including local nobodies, they are incredibly self important and obnoxious.

98 The SEAL racial composition "scandal" is merely example 3,214,999 of leftists saying that objective testing standards are racist. Leftists subscribe to the theory that blacks and non-white hispanics are pets, not fellow citizens.

We had a similar controvery around here locally. Now, if you're black you can become a police officer for the City of Dayton if you have a failing test score.

actual news reporters, including local nobodies, they are incredibly
self important and obnoxious. Asking a person you don't know whom they
are voting for is extremely bad manners. She should have told them that
whom she votes for is none of their f**king business.

After one of the elections that GWB won, either against Weird Al or Reporting for Doody, Eleanor Clift's now dead husband wrote a column in our local fishwrap asking for people who left the presidential selection blank to contact him. A woman that I know voted that way and I urged her to get in touch with him because I wanted at least one semi-sane individual to respond. I figured that he was doing it strictly in a "gathering information" type of thing which I'd expect of somebody that wanted to at least give the appearance of possessing integrity. When I asked her subsequently if she'd done so she said yes and the cockwipe was a real fuckhead to her, snottily stating that "Well you know all you did was end up giving the election to the victor". I hope that fuck's death was extremely painful and served as a preamble to a life of torture in Hell with Satan having the face of his crone wife.

100 Weren't there some radio call-in shenanigans during the 2008 campaign? Like one case where phone lines were intentionally jammed?

Axelturfing doesn't just happen online.

Not saying that's what happened at WGN (in Chicago, you say?), just saying one shouldn't take call-in numbers to prove much of anything (at least not without a grain of salt).

101 Why is it assumed that 18-24 yr olds, most of whom couldn't even vote in 08 would vote for Obama now? I get that young people tend to be liberal because they are idealistic and poor so they don't pay taxes, etc. But, isn't a better question how Obama is doing with 22-28 yr olds? That's where he'd be potentially losing votes.

102 Re Seals and diversity---the USA is about 85% white---that is if you
include "white Hispanics" which the New York Times has told us is new
class of "white". So I ask you my progressive loving friends, WTF is
"wrong" with Seal Teams that are 85% "white".


In this case they might have a legitimate reason to want more ethnic "diversity". If the SEALS get sent on an operation in Africa (for instance) that calls for them to blend in with the local population, it might be a bit more difficult for a bunch of white guys to pull off.

That new "Forward" campaign slogan is just typical, isn't it?

I mean....it reflects the hive-mentality of the liberals/socialists who make up Team Barky. ....It implies "Onward!" ....."Onward with our Mission!".....like a command to the troops.

I can see how they would like it, and think that it was a good idea.

But in light of President GolfsAlot....."Forward" should be spelled "Fore!ward".

.....These people who surround him, are so steeped in their own outlook, and adoration of Barky.....that they seem oblivious to the things that he has done in office that are definitely not awesome....and leave him open to mockery.

They were so oblivious, that they alsocame up with that "Winning The Future" slogan.....and didn't even notice that the acronym of it was "WTF".

==========

Yes! In fact, not only did that happen, it happened to the same host of the show I was talking about earlier, Milt Rosenberg.

There were two broadcasts in question where the show was disrupted by an avalanche of retarded Obamabots who were objecting to the host giving airtime to Obama-critical guests. One of the guests was David Freddoso, and I don't remember who the other one was.

I used to have the podcasts of those two shows; they were downright eerie at times. This was when the cult was at its strongest and most fervent.

Posted by: Captain Hate at April 30, 2012 01:21 PM (g8py2)

110 What was eerie in particular was how the Obamabots kept repeating the exact same phrases over and over, and whenever the host would try to take them out of that and make them articulate something in their own words, they would just double down on the repetition. Caller after caller after caller did this.

Yes, and the bots had been mobilized to object to the issue even being raised, much less answered.

At some point the host couldn't help cracking up over the absurdity of the mindless caller behavior. Discussion became impossible. It wasn't funny, but I understand why he started laughing, because it was so ridiculous.

120 "The SEAL racial composition "scandal" is merely example 3,214,999 of leftists saying that objective testing standards are racist."

This "scandal" serves the purpose of letting people in the military who might be tempted to vote for a lefty, like Obama, what the consequences are.

As I've mentioned before, Discovery has done a documentary on the 2 week selection process for army special ops training. Here's the thing. The process is so tough that just making it to the end of the 2 weeks is considered an accomplishment. Many of the soldiers go through the process a few times before they make it. at the end of the process, not all of the soldiers who made it through get selected.

In this particular two week selection, at the end, there was this black guy who had gotten through the 2 weeks, but wasn't selected. I can't remember exactly what he said on camera, but I remember him, because for the hell he went through, and the disappointment, he was still positive. You were left with the impression that he would probably go through it again with the increased likelihood of making it the second or third time. That's one of the things they're looking for, an attitude of not giving up. But if they start lowering standards to promote diversity, his making it will be diminished. If he makes it under the present standards, he and everyone else will know that he made it because he was the best.

In this particular 2 week process,

125 They interviewed this chick on local (Denver) radio (a conservative show). Apparently her dad (a big conservative) "outed" her name via an e-mail
to the radio host, saying he should get her on the air to talk about her
encounter with Obama. In his (the dad's) words, there was more to the
story than the regular media were covering, the implication being that
she wasn't a typical liberal brat all goo-goo about The One.

During her interview, it became pretty apparent throughout that she wasn't a liberal, even though she wouldn't come straight out and say she wasn't voting for Obama.
