How the GOP loses the future

I had to laugh when I saw this article on the Daily Caller about millennials and the 2012 election.

Millennials — those “Gen Y” Americans born in the late 1980s and early ’90s — will be a key swing demographic in the election of 2012, according to the president of the non-profit organization Generation Opportunity...

President Obama’s 2008 electoral victory was attributed in part to his support from first-time voters, 68% of whom sided with him over Republican Senator John McCain. But his public expressions of sympathy with the Occupy Wall Street movement, and his disdain for public spending cuts, could alienate a large number of young voters this time around.

Yeah, I heard that loud sucking sound of young people abandoning President Obama when he expressed "sympathy" with OWS...not.

I guess the authors missed the recent Pew Research report showing the largest generation gap in history in a proposed contest between Obama and Romney.

But then their delusion makes sense when you look at the picture accompanying the article. Notice anything missing?

I guess you could call that being blinded by the "white."

  1. GEEZ.....not just white, but country club, equestrian, trust fund, Brooks Brothers and Saks Fifth Avenue white. Come on, you know these kids are kids of Republican state politicians and financiers. No way in hell were they at Invesco Field in 2008. No way. They are really bullshitting people now with these articles.
