With 25% youth unemployment and the fact that fresh college degrees have been relegated as nearly worthless in today's job market (because there aren't any jobs or career opportunities for new job-seekers), it's no surprise that Obama can't replicate the 2008 "magic" (ie. hype based on propaganda for the socialist agenda).
This is going to be a long, long, long election season:
Politico: MIAMI, Fla. -- A low-dollar fundraiser here Monday felt like a throwback to the 2008 campaign.
There was the same old soundtrack – including “City of Blinding Lights” by U2, the president’s 2008 anthem -- the enthusiastic organizers and the abundant appeals for supporters to rally behind President Obama.
The one missing element? Overflowing crowds.
Granted, it was a fundraiser, not a free rally. But the empty seats were hard to miss.
The top level of the 2,200-seat concert hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts was entirely empty, as were the seats along the side of the second and third levels.
"The expectation was 900," a Democratic official said, and more than 980 tickets were sold.
Tickets for the Gen 44 event started at $44, the official said
When the Chicago crooks (Axelrod, anyone?) figure out that they are going to have to work their collective butts of for Teh One's reelection, it's not going to be pretty. Who wants to bet that they will go more negative and leftist propaganda (GOP is going to kill granny, etc.) than any Democrat incumbent in history?
