Fox News Calls Young People Dumb for Supporting Obama

In their attempt to explain away why 80% of young people don’t like Mitt Romney, Fox News proclaimed that only those who don’t know anything support Obama.

Here is the video from Media Matters:

When Bill O’Reilly asked Charles Krauthammer why Latinos, African-Americans, and young voters support Obama, he answered, “Look particularly, let’s start with the young. You know, what do they know. That’s why they’re young. They don’t have to know anything. They voted for Obama in ’08, and now we have about the same ratios. It’s the older people who have wisdom. The young are the embodiment of the idea of hope over experience.”

Krauthammer went on to explain that older people, especially voters over 65 voted for Obama in 2008, and after Obama disappointed them, that will leave a residue and buyers remorse. Krauthammer claimed that there will be a lower turn out for the young, so there is nothing to worry about.

The problem is that votes over 65 overwhelmingly supported McCain in 2008, and he still lost. Fox News and Krauthammer don’t want to admit to their senior citizen audience that they no longer decide the outcome of presidential elections. Those young people and minorities who heavily support Obama will determine if Obama gets reelected or not.

Fox News sounded exactly like their own angry white senior citizen audience. Why do young people support Obama? Because they are young, and don’t know anything. The reality is that Romney is doing even worse than McCain did with women, Latinos, and African-Americans. The demographics and the percentages aren’t in the GOP’s favor, so they are reduced to hoping for low turnout.

Fox News has a message for all of you young people who support Obama. You’re dumb, and get off of their lawn!!!!
