Obama’s most loyal followers are about to screw him



It was the low information voters, the “youth”, who put Barack Obama back in the White House.

>>Mitt Romney would have cruised to the White House had he managed to split the youth vote with Barack Obama, according to an analysis released Wednesday.

Obama easily won the youth vote nationally, 67 percent to 30 percent, with young voters proving the decisive difference in Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio…<<

It turns out they started paying attention about a year too late. So much for the value of a “college education.” Those professors do one hell of a job of indoctrination, but, given the results, it’s pretty obvious they didn’t teach their little charges how to pay attention, how to rationally analyze a problem, or in general, how to think.

Anyway, after celebrating the President’s reelection and after celebrating the passage of ObamaCare so we could all have free medical care – OK, it wasn’t going to be “free”, it would just be paid for by the 1% – they’ve discovered that reality is a harsh mistress.

They went online to sign up for their free health insurance and the first thing they discovered was that their savior, who was going to make seas stop rising, couldn’t get a web page up in about the same time it took the Greatest Generation to defeat Germany and Japan after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.

That wasn’t even the bad news. The website started working well enough to sign on and get their free insurance. The bad news? It WASN’T FREE!!!! They were paying way more for insurance they didn’t need so that old guys like The Curmudgeon can get (relatively) cheap insurance. Thanks fools suckers kids.

To their credit, some of the kiddies are taking this problem seriously. They’ve organized and they’re working the crowds.

>>t was only 10:30 a.m., and already, we were too cold to move, let alone get out of our SUV to tailgate. We’d been parked outside Notre Dame’s football stadium in South Bend, Indiana, in the alumni lot for more than two and half hours, ahead of the university’s last home game of the year against Brigham Young. Normally, cars line up in the wee hours of the morning to claim the best tailgate spots, but today, the stadium parking lot was a ghost town, with only one other vehicle in sight.

“Don’t worry. The students will come. They usually don’t show up until around 11:30,” one of the event’s hosts told me.


just as predicted, at 11:15 students started coming to the Generation Opportunity tents. They happily listened to the organization’s staff talk about its “Opt-Out of Obamacare” campaign and signed pledges to do just that on the group’s iPads before leaving with green and yellow Mardi Gras beads (“We try to cater to the area we’re going to,” Patrice Lee, outreach manager for the group, told me) and Opt-Out koozies, sunglasses and bottle openers. Along with the students came cases of Bud Light, bottles of Andre, jugs of Fireball Whiskey and handles of vodka, gin and rum. Generation Opportunity’s beer pong table was swiftly put to use.<<

They’re pushing the “Opt-Out” campaign on college campuses all over the country. Will they be successful? They probably will be. For one thing, they don’t have to convert everybody, they just have to put a dent in the youth signups because they are the key to the success or failure of the President’s signature program. If a very significant number of them don’t sign up, welcome to the death spiral.

Why do we expect their fledgling campaign will succeed?

>>“The events that we’ve done at college campuses and college towns across the country have been enormously successful in getting young people interested in learning more about their healthcare options under Obamacare,” Generation Opportunity president Evan Feinberg, who was not at the event, told me over the phone afterward.

“We’ve found that without a doubt, our message that they can take control of their healthcare and choose to ‘opt-out’ of Obamacare and find a better deal for themselves by buying private insurance outside of Obamacare, that message has really resonated with them because they’re really worried about Obamacare,” he continued. “They don’t want to buy Obamacare.”

Zepeda and his friends Lane Bullock, a fellow junior, and Stephen Fox, a pre-med student, expressed the very concerns Feinberg outlined. “I think the free market should work out health care. I think it should be privatized. The government shouldn’t get involved,” Fox said. “Young people don’t need it—the majority that is—I mean we’re all healthy,” he said nodding in the direction of his friends.<<

Look for the swirl to start soon, that sound you heard was a flush.
