I doubt they really believe this....but I do love this gem.

Voters between the ages of 18 and 29 supported then-candidate Obama over then-Republican nominee Sen. John McCain in 2008 66% to 32%, according to CNN exit polling.

But former senator and University of Colorado President Hank Brown said Romney is a "younger and more dynamic Republican candidate" than McCain.


Lmao.

Of course he'll win the youth vote. He can appeal to them with his modern musical tastes.

Calling Mittens "young and energetic" is like calling Jim Inhoffe "genial and kind-hearted".

Romney will surely do better than McCain among young adults if only because of economic conditions. Four years ago, Obama's youth brigade did not hope for "yes, we can" to transform into "yes, we can (live in our parents' basement forever)"

Alas, not as clever as the members of the Obama youth brigade who cannot find a quality job yet expect to find one at some point over the course of four more years of Obamanomics. Such quintessential cleverness cannot be denied!

If the youth of American want a future that is bright and prosperous, then Mitt Romney will be the candidate.

This, or perhaps they prefer four more years of "do you want fries with that?"

Too bad he won't. Everyone who was tepid is now fired up and ready to go. Sorry but Romney's endorsement of the Ryan bill and then the waffling of every position he's held from 2002 to now is a major turn off.

He won't. Obama will retain some of the young adult vote because he has shown a strong feeling towards lowering tuition costs.

Romney's more likely to win back the Latino vote than the youth vote. The trend of youths moving to the Democratic Party has been more stable and consistent than the recent Latino surges of Democratic support.

Neither is gonna happen, though.

The only youth subgroup that will vote for Romney will be the Evangelical youth. I know he's a Mormon but they're politically active enough to not sit home and vote for the "lesser evil" in their POV.

Hell I'm right in that 'evangelical, likely-voter camp', and I ain't voting for Mitt.

Mitt ain't gonna win squat. He might win over 65.

The good news for Governor Romney is that I can't see anyway the youth vote turns out in the numbers they did in 2008.

The Republican solution for America is that such jobs as America will develop will continue to be ill-paid jobs with no economic security and few prospects for improvement. The fastest-growing sector of employment will be 'domestic service' in which one gets to live in some grand house as a subordinate to everyone else within except to fellow domestics.  They will be superior only to the rodents and insects within the household.

The joke was the incredibly obvious one, of course, but what made it enjoyable was the pretentious, LH defying French, and the 'I wouldn't know'.  The prim lad!

Because fighting inflation above all else and promoting tax cuts and capital preservation over economic growth are a positive agenda for young people...
