Rich Lowry on the youth vote and how ” Rarely has a politician owed so much to a constituency he has served so poorly. ”

  ” Give the Obama Youth credit for this: At least they didn’t vote their self-interest.

  The cadres of college students and recent graduates who swooned and fainted for Barack Obama four years ago will long be remembered for one of the most ill-considered fliers in the annals of self-defeating enthusiasms. In the cold light of day, the youthful idealists, believers, and activists of 2008 look like the lamentable saps, patsies, and suckers of 2012. ”

  And while he specifically speaks of the youth vote being so poorly served , what of the black vote ?

   Surely they have been just as poorly served . As have we all .
