Lord Of The Barflies

Lord of the BarfliesBarack Obama, the Lord of the Barflies, has fallen on hard times.  He’s lost the kids.  Even government subsidized jello shots might not save him now:

A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll shows 52 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 say they would vote to recall Obama.

    “Young Americans are unhappy with virtually every major thing President Barack Obama has done since he was re-elected, but they would still vote for him today, according to the results of a Harvard University survey released on Wednesday.” Someone left this about the Harvard study, from Reuters, at my blog today.
    I like your paragraph WAAAAAAAAAAAAY better. But, which IS it? !!

      With all due respect to 18 year-olds (hell, I used to be one), instead of lowering the voting age to 18, they should have raised it to 30.

      • Yeah, no kidding. The funny thing is that back in the 18th century, people really were adults with adult responsibilities by the time they were in their late teens, yet the guys who wrote our Constitution set the voting age at twenty-one. They obviously thought that a few years of experience in the real world were necessary before someone was qualified to cast an intelligent vote. Nowadays we have children voting who still live with Mommy and Daddy and have never held a job or paid a bill or even made their own dentist appointments, for heaven’s sake. They have no experience whatsoever with the real world and think it’s perfectly normal and natural to have everything handed to them and done for them and provided for them. No wonder the country is going to hell.

        I turned 18 and 1 month later I was in line for my uniform.
        Amen on the 30 Bob.
