2012: Weep For The Future

The next generation of American taxpayers … errr, dependents … want four more years of Barack Obama in the White House.

According to a Scholastic Student Vote survey of nearly a quarter of a million students under the age of 18, the incumbent drew 51 percent of the vote compared to 45 percent for “Republican” nominee Mitt Romney.  Four percent chose another candidate – with more than a few “my dad” or “my mom” responses included.

Hmmmm … we honestly don’t know what’s more depressing here: That 51 percent of students chose Obama or that 45 percent picked Romney.  Either way, it sure looks as though our country’s dumbed-down education system is working like a charm.

Which reminds us … have either of these major party candidates so much as mentioned the education issue during this race?  Obviously we’re kidding (we know they have) but with the economy – and to some extent foreign policy – dominating the national discussion, the issue has been largely ignored.

That’s too bad … because free market reforms in our academic marketplace are every bit (if not more) critical than free market reforms in the broader economy.

Anyway, the Scholastic Student Vote has been conducted in each presidential election since 1940 – and has accurately predicted the winner in all but two of those eighteen elections.  The exceptions?  Kid “voters” picked Thomas Dewey over Harry S. Truman and Richard Nixon over John F. Kennedy.

Romney and Obama will square off on Monday night at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida – the third and final debate of the election cycle.  As we did during the previous two presidential debates (see here and here), FITSNews will be live-blogging the proceedings.

Well it appears that the under 18 crowd just approved more spending and they have no problem paying more and more taxes to pay the ever growing national debt. But that statement goes for both parties since neither party are populated by statesmen and do not have the balls or whatever to do anything about it.

I suppose the under 18 crowd looks a lot like the Republican and Democrat politicians…they have their hands out continuing to say give me more money.

I spoke with my son about this over the weekend. Unfortunately he has taken, and I have failed to date at impressing that this is a poor choice, the apathy train during this cycle. When I explained that he would be eligible to vote in the next cycle, he stated soundly he would ‘worry about it later’. I feel like a toad.

In conjunction with the article, he states appx. what the pole is quoted as stating. Most for Oshitforbrains, the others for Obamney.

Good think I got my pitchfork while they were on sale at the beginning of this cycle.

I hope you’ll join me in voting for Odumbass. Why vote for the lesser of two evils when you can have twice the misery for twice the cost. Let them finish running it into the ground so we can start picking up the pieces.

Have a Great Day

Like most people in their 40’s (I guess) I think the generation coming up now will be the one that does us in, but I think every generation has said that through the years. I hope it’s just more proof of the apocryphal saying generally attributed to Churchill- “If you’re not Liberal when you’re 25, you have no heart. If you’re not Conservative when you’re 35, you have no brain.”

Churchill (according to most scholars) didn’t actually utter these words, but they work for me nonetheless…

Frank Pytel October 22, 2012 at 9:06 am

I concur. This can be seen in the stock market today. Every time the gubment says they plan to spend, stock go up. This flies in the face of soaring unemployment (More like 50% than the reported 7-8) and steadily increasing numbers of welfare, medicaid and medicare rolls.

Had this occured in the 20’s… Oh yeah. It did.

Obonehead2012!! Twice the pain at twice the price. :)

Sailor October 22, 2012 at 9:56 am

I think Churchill did say that, although (politically at least) the words liberal and conservative had a different meaning in Churchill’s time. He wouldn’t recognize today’s conservatives (the U.S. brand at least).

Tom October 22, 2012 at 9:04 am

The generation that did us in was the baby boomers. Thanks to their “great society” we have unfunded liabilities that we’ll never be able to pay for, and we have a goliath government that simply cannot be reversed at this point. So if you want to throw the blame around start with all those who are entering medicare and social security with their hands out saying “I paid for this.”

No, you didn’t. You allowed the government to steal it. That’s not the same thing.

Frank Pytel October 22, 2012 at 9:07 am

Absotively 100% correct.

Robert October 22, 2012 at 9:15 am

Regardless of who wins, and I now believe it will be Romney, there will be no reason to jump off any bridge.

Our nation is not going bankrupt. The world economy has changed so much that China and Japan (our two largest creditors) could not afford for us to go under. Just like we can’t afford for nations we have loaned to go under.

I know it isn’t quite that simple, but bottom line is we need to drastically cut back, but we aren’t going under.

FITS is cherry picking the polls where his guy Obama is doing better…

Like NBC only reports on single-women voters..

Thank God, FITS polls are not the ones that will give us our next president…

So many young voters are fresh out of colleges where they’ve been totally indoctrinated w/ leftwing dogma…and they think it’s sophisticated to do Stupid things just because the poeple smarter than them are perplexed by it…

They’ll grow up when they figure out that Obama and FITS are trying to rob them blind w/ their own stupidity…

Jan October 22, 2012 at 10:11 am

I realize it is highly likely you never went to college, but people under the age of 18 are rarely in college or married. So most of your post just confirms you make things up as you go along and have no problem lying.

Robert October 22, 2012 at 10:17 am

Funny T how you now feel Gallup and other polls are valid when they show Romney in lead….yet a few weeks ago those same polls showing Obama you claimed they were false.

BigT October 22, 2012 at 11:32 am

Robert, it’s Simple: Poll or no poll: you’re (Obama is) LOSING….

Why do you think FITS is Hand-Selecting a poll that has his guy up…and ignoring everything else…

Like Obama: FITS just wants to see what he likes…

Smirks October 22, 2012 at 11:42 am

Robert, it’s Simple: Poll or no poll: you’re (Obama is) LOSING….

Ah, Big(o)T finally admits it. Polls don’t matter unless it tells him what he wants to hear.

It’s real ironic you call FITS on “hand-selecting” polls when you’re the only one who consistently does this.

lars October 22, 2012 at 10:40 am

Don’t worry libs…Obama’s got this thing all sewn up…I was in Virginia a few months ago and a woman received a voter registration by a Democrat group…for her dog…which had been DECEASED for 10 YEARS…

Chicago graveyards will come alive election day…even the dead animals will vote Democrat!

You Betcha!

BigT October 22, 2012 at 11:29 am

FITS…Face it…it’s falling apart on you…

And it should..Nobody should keep their job, doing as poorly as Obama…

If a man ever needed to get FIRED…it is Obama…

Our country will begin to heal as soon as he is taken out of office.

Bill October 22, 2012 at 11:30 am

What a bunch of BS!!!

The only thing both the GOP and the Democrats can agree on is that the entire Financial Collapse was caused by out of control Bankers!!

So, your solution should be to put one of these out of control bankers into office as the President????????

Putting the FOX (News) into the hen house to guard it.

How the hell do you think that is going to work out????

BigT October 22, 2012 at 11:39 am

I love it, Bill: When Obama has CRASHED and Burned…now it’s the bakers …yeah right…

Sorry Dumb@$$..it’s Obama’s Fault…

Bush made a mistake spending too much on democrat policies…but his Economy was GREAT…Obama’s is MISERABLE, because he’s Clueless about what makes America work…

Romney Supports Woman’s Right to Choose What She Makes for Dinner

BOCA RATON, Fla. (The Borowitz Report) — With just hours to go until the third and final Presidential debate, Republican nominee Mitt Romney today voiced his support “for a woman’s most precious right: to choose what she makes for dinner.”

In a bid designed to close the gender gap in the race, the former Massachusetts Governor pledged “on Day One” to give women full control over meal planning and preparation.

“Pot roast, meatloaf, duck a l’orange — as long as it’s piping hot and on the table when her husband comes home, I don’t care what a gal makes,” he told supporters.

Mr. Romney also unveiled his latest immigration proposal, which would allow immigrants to become citizens “by going to fight in Iran.”

The nominee’s campaign manager, Matt Rhoades, said that tonight Mr. Romney hopes to improve upon his performance in the second debate, in which he slipped and told the truth three times.

“That was surprising for Mitt,” he said. “But even Michael Jordan missed a layup now and then.”

Nice timing after Biggie’s “bakers” remark!

Doesn’t the Obama Administration pay women on average less than 20% than men? Or is it just the Obama Campaign which underpays women?…

larrie October 22, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Don’t the radical Muslim activists who visited the Obama White House multiple times believe that women are inherently inferior to men and indeed force them to wear the hajib?

Debate Ends Abruptly as Obama Punches Romney in Face

BOCA RATON (The Borowitz Report) — The third and final Presidential debate ended in dramatic fashion tonight as President Obama punched Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the face, knocking him unconscious before a national television audience.

As Mr. Romney lay motionless on the floor at Lynn University with 35:06 remaining in regulation, moderator Bob Schieffer declared the debate over, calling Mr. Obama’s punch “a clean shot.”

The President’s uncharacteristic explosion of anger came after Mr. Romney repeatedly needled him about going on a global “apology tour” on behalf of the U.S.

As the former Massachusetts Governor continued his harangue, TV viewers witnessed Mr. Obama glaring at his Republican opponent, a vein visibly throbbing on the President’s forehead.

Still, few observers were prepared for the sight of Mr. Obama leaping across the table and cold-cocking Mr. Romney, dropping him to the floor.

Moments later, Vice-President Joe Biden jumped onstage to congratulate Mr. Obama with a jubilant high-five.

“You literally cleaned his clock,” Mr. Biden said. “I only wish I’d done the same thing to that punk Ryan.”

After the debate, the usually mild-mannered Obama was at pains to explain why exactly he had struck Mr. Romney in the face: “I guess I just couldn’t take it any more, and I sort of snapped. It wasn’t optimal. But he was being such a dick.”

Minutes after Mr. Romney was carried out on a stretcher, the debate was declared a victory for Mr. Obama by all the major networks except Fox News, who called it a draw.
