Yeah...that probably isn't going to happen, Romney. Try to imagine the Country Kitchen Buffet at 8 AM on a Monday morning...the crowd you're seeing there is your base. That's pretty much all you got.
 
2012-09-03 07:45:38 AM
Don't you mean he's counting on students not being allowed to vote, Subby?

I'm sure college kids will flock toward the uncomfortable, stiff old guy who might be a robot and thinks that Jesus left some notes in a hat for some dude in the early 1800s in upstate New York over the cool black guy who smokes cigarettes, listens to Jay-Z and sends elite SEAL teams out to blow terrorists faces off.

Why would students vote for Mitt Romney when he has said being educated is the single most destructive and evil thing a young person can ever do in their lifetime, even more than committing mass murder or raping babies?
 
2012-09-03 09:55:54 AM
I guess he's farked, then
 
2012-09-03 09:56:04 AM
That's going to be hard since his people have tried to ban every student from voting.
 
2012-09-03 09:56:48 AM
I attend a public college in a very red state. We have 10,000 students. I'm not saying Romney has no support here, but there's very little. Meanwhile, Obama (and of course RON PAUL) are the two most prevalent campaigns that have been supported on campus. Can't attest to truly conservative schools, but I'm sure he's locked up Bob Jones University at least.

Serious Black: Why would students vote for Mitt Romney when he has said being educated is the single most destructive and evil thing a young person can ever do in their lifetime, even more than committing mass murder or raping babies?


Actually, net increase in education does correspond to net destruction of technology. Mitt Romney's right, and thus has my vote.

Knowing some people who went to "colleges" like Bob Jones, don't count on that so much.

Considering the rhetoric of "these students are too stupid to vote" combined with all the disenfranchisement efforts on the part of the GOP, don't farking count on it, jackass.
 
2012-09-03 10:00:54 AM
Per FiveThirtyEight right now Obama's chance of winning stands at 74.5% and that's up 5.1% since Aug. 26.

So Mr. Romney will have to do better than this.

Because they will be millionaires as soon as they finish college and land that first job. The signing bonus will be at least 2 million. Do you want lazy occupy hippies taking that away in taxes? If so, go ahead and vote for Obama.

Oh, fark Pitchfork so hard. In their top 20 albums list, RADIOHEAD ACCOUNTS FOR FOUR OF THEM. There's no metal, no hard rock.

Hey everybody, Obama isn't fixing the country's problem with wealth disparity and corporate oligarchy quickly enough! So let's vote for a guy who would make both of these problems 100 times worse!

I suppose the logic is that the unemployment rate is so high among the 18-29 age group (or whatever it is... maybe it was 16-24, I forget) and that that age group has a notoriously short memory span.

I suppose there's some merit to that line of thinking. I don't think it will tip the scales in his direction though.
 
2012-09-03 10:13:15 AM
Hmm, let's look at Romney's pitch to college students: "I'm going to kick you off your parent's health-care, make sure that you'll have no Medicare when you retire, slash your Pell Grants, reintroduce for-profit middle men to your student loans, ensure that a decent percentage of you will not be able to get married, cut off your access to affordable contraception, and generally disapprove of everything you learn."

Yeah ... that'll work.

In Ryan's defense, that is some timeless stuff right there.

CSB: When we were preparing for my Grandfather's living estate sale I went through his vinyl collection. It was mostly country, classical, baroque, and dixieland stuff. I found every Led Zeppelin album except "Presence" mixed in. I asked him if those were his. He said something like "You know I don't even like rock music, but those boys knew how to rock." Then he told me how him and Grandma used to put on the record player or phonograph and dance in the living room, and those are probably the only albums in the collection they never danced to, because they couldn't figure out how.

As some one currently taking political science and contemporary history courses at a Louisiana university, I can say that Romney does have a lock on the "I can not use basic English grammar nor spell check my answers, we are a Christian nation and should kill people in the Middle East who persecute Christians" type students. Yes, they have lowered the admissions standards at Louisiana universities to where most anyone can be admitted, even if there is NO WAY that they should have ever been allowed to have a high school diploma, much less a college degree, why do you ask?

70s music in 2012 would be like '40s music when I was in college and back then nothing made us kids want to support a politician as much as knowing he had a bunch of Glenn Miller shellac discs. 

of course it's Ryan we're talking about so nobody would have believed such a relentless liar about that or anything else.

This. Mitt's wasting his time; it's too close to the end of the line. It's akin to Death-Bed Repentance. He should have extended the hand of friendship to RON PAUL voters long before now...perhaps tried a little harder not to be oppressive dicks at the convention, too.

I predict Romney will get 1% of the student vote. I also predict Stephen Colbert will get more write-in votes from college students than Romney will get actual votes.

If you were a 19y/o college student, issues revolving around your education would be the first ones you really begin to think about. So if you're a single-issue kinda person and still in college, I'd say there would be a good chance that would be your single issue.

I don't really care what KISS stands for, other than craven capitalism, but when OPP first came out, waaaaaaaaay back in the early 90s, that's what everyone said it meant. I thought that meant Treach was rhyming about farking other dudes' women and not giving a shiat about it.
