'Smoking Gun' Headline: "OBAMA Greeted with cheers, JEERS at the University of CO Boulder" - Obama's youth support WANING?Submitted by sharkhearted on Thu, 04/26/2012 - 00:02
This is an interesting article from the Colorado Observer as it starts like this:
"BOULDER – President Obama won the 2008 presidential election riding a tsunami of support from young voters, but his campaign stop Wednesday at the University of Colorado Boulder showed why he may have trouble catching a wave this year."
It then goes on to describe what Occupy Boulder chooses to protest against Obama: his signing and support of the NDAA!
(Even if the author broad-brushes and misrepresents the REAL implied protest to the NDAA, which are specifically sections 1021 and 1022, but I digress).
Anyway...back to the article which says:
"While the Republican group may have been the most outspoken with their dissatisfaction of President Obama, they were not the only group on campus to express dismay over the president’s time in office."
"The Occupy Boulder movement initially organized to protest the president on several issues, including high gas prices, high tuition costs and high unemployment, according to the group’s Facebook page; however, several of the group’s members commented that these issues were not President Obama’s fault."
"Instead, the group decided to primarily protest the president’s support of the National Defense Authorization Act, which essentially funds the military."
So, all in all, this a very telling article, and of course why Dr. Paul is spending so much time on college campuses, absorbing the power of that 2008 youth vote...away from Obama this time in 2012!
