    Obama has been such a disappointment as US President that even the Millennials are worried about what direction the US is going. This is the generation that overwhelmingly voted for him both in 2008 and in 2012. This is the generation that is supposedly blue democratic to the very core. Yet look at the dissatisfaction and disappointment thanks to the mediocre leadership of Obama and Biden. I have tried to tell some of our enlightened liberals on here that the Millennials are not as sternly blue democratic as they are perceived. There are several young folks that are still quite conservative especially on financial and economic issues.

    I haven't really heard many millenials complaining about Obama. There are a few young republicans, I suppose---emphasis on "a few."

    Fox News has been telling young people not to vote for a reason, and it isn't because they think young people are suddenly going to go against their principles.

    And in fact they might vote for their new found principles. One week, we'll see.

    Probably not in the ultra liberal city of MINNEAPOLIS or any of its ultra liberal suburbs you don't here Millennials complaining about Obama but come out into the rest of the US and you will here many young people saying that Obama hasn't done shit for this country and how a lot of them are sorry for voting for him in 2012. I work with quite a few Millennials and they detest Obama. The Millennial generation isn't as ultra liberal as you seem to perceive it to be. They not as pro democratic as previously thought. There are a lot of Millennials who are quite conservative.

    There is a possibility. Not all Millennials think and act alike. Like any other group of people there is a diversity of opinions and beliefs.

    Climate has been changing for 4.7 billion years. Why on 'earth' would anyone think it's a hoax?

    Disappointment in Obama doesn't equal support for Republicans. I'm willing to bet that many millenia ls will vote "C, none of the above" this year.

    Younger generations have no brand loyalty to anything, least of all a political party.

    How would you? You spend every waking minute of every day posting here. But I guess if HottJoe hasn't heard it, then it simply is not true.

    You don't watch Fox News, so how can you even make such a statement?

    [/quote He is an EXTREMIST LIBERAL HEN so making such off the wall comments is second nature for him.
