The numbers in this story have to be scary to the Obama campaign when they really get started going. It seems that these kids who were really important to the Obama election are getting a bit fed up with what he has left them with.

This is great to see. These kids are finally shrugging off the horse dung that they are spoon fed in the moonbat world of academia. This was a crucial demographic for Obozo in 2008. The fact that he's losing ground here is really going to hurt him. I love it.

"Hope" and "Change" only goes so far when they are living off spare change.

I think that everyone realizes that they were duped by the appealing rhetoric of Obama and are less than pleased with his performance. But really- what would anyone have expected from a community organizer?

Plenty of hamburger flipping jobs and retail jobs. It might take a while to pay off their student loans that way but nobody said they had to go to college to get that degree.

Kids? The survey pool of 500 covered people from 22 to 28 years of age.

Roy - you're showing your age!

as well they should. Obama has continued many of the same destructive policies as the previous presidents. Why should the youth want to follow losers?
Their future is the first in a very long time to be worse than their parents. If I was in that age group I'd do everything I could to elect someone who didn't try to run my life from cradle to grave. It has been proven to be costly and ineffective.

No they are not scary for three reasons Roy.

1) You're linking to a far right, non-objective blog.

2) To lazy or dishonest to link to the "surveys" they claim say this.

3) One survey is some unknown dude in New York, the 2nd survey doesn't say anything near what you claim it does.

According to the article, college grads are most interested in jobs. But the GOP hasn't done anything to improve the job picture while believing that raising interest rates and slashing government spending in the face of mass unemployment will somehow make things better instead of worse.

I have no idea why the GOP looks like a viable choice for those that seek jobs. I suspect that their view will change closer to election day. BTW, this demographic typically doesn't vote anyway.

The GOP didn't make the promises of "creating jobs". The Dems and Obama did for the past 2 years no less.
Remember that "laser like focus" on creating jobs ? Remember the stimulus for creating jobs ?

Hopefully these debt burdened and jobless grads will come to realize government is the problem and not the solution.
