GOP's perception of young voters
-Headline of the Day-
"Crossroads ad attacks Obama's 'celebrity' presidency."
Never let it be said that Republicans are saddled with the burden of new ideas. And for anyone daring to make such a scurrilous accusation, I offer the latest from Karl Rove's PAC. In it, President Obama is attacked for being just so gosh-darned famous and "cool."
Seems familiar, somehow. Like someone had tried it before. I wonder how that turned out?
Anyway, this time it's different. There's that whole "he's cool" thing, too. The ad is aimed at young people and you know how they hate cool. As Steve M. from No More Mister Nice Blog puts it, "No! Don't listen to the part of your brain that responds to coolness! Coolness is not good! Coolness is bad! Bad! Romney is boring! Boring is good!"
Hey young people! Put down your video game controllers and your meme generators and your phone apps and join us in a nice game of whist!
I guess Republicans have to at least try to attract young voters. But you'd think that in trying, they'd actually try. (The Hill)

"Romney Campaign Again Warns Of ‘Soviet’ Threat."
First, Romney's foreign policy adviser complains about our policy with "Czechoslovakia," now this.
I think Mittens is trying to convince Republican voters that he literally is Reagan -- and that it's 1984. (Talking Points Memo)
