ignatius_crumbcake: coco ebert: How is he socially moderate? Is he pro-marriage equality or pro-choice? I thought he wasn't.He's not socially moderate in the overall sense, but he is more socially moderate than the rest of the GOP. He supports civil unions and extending rights to gay couples, agreed with the DADT repeal, accepts evolution and global warming and thinks science should be taught in science class.Not ideal, especially on abortion, but loads better than the majority of the GOP.
gopher321: I guess those Occupy Wall Street mofos knew exactly where the real blame lied.
HellRaisingHoosier: The fact of the matter is, the the reason Millennials haven't been voting in force is because we have no one we want to vote for. I honestly can't think of a sinlge Millennial who is in Congress, and the oldest of us are hitting our late twenties. It is absolutely horrible and is firmly in the realm of taxation without representation. Our parents and grandparents are spending our wealth and assets and we do not have a single voice to say enough is enough.
thurstonxhowell: If we could just get young people to realize that we have elections every 2 years, not 4, we'd be in pretty good shape.
Doc Daneeka: DamnYankees: Again - no. Young people were not decisive. Obama won EVERY demographic except for one.Obama won young people.Obama won blacks.Obama won hispanics.Obama won asians.Obama won women.Romney won a single group - white men. The only decisive aspect of this election is that white men decisively kept it close.Hey, don't blame me. I'm an over-30 straight white dude who voted for Obama. Again.Don't ask me what's wrong with my demographic.
coco ebert: I just find it astonishing that our country has moved SO far to the right that accepting evolution is considered social moderation.
YoungSwedishBlonde: As a 26 year old who didn't vote for Obama in 08, I gladly punched my ballot for him this go around. Partly because I think he's done a great job but mostly because the Republicans/Tea Party is literally trying to re-write history in front of us and pretend like I don't remember their actions and words over the past 10 years. It's sickening...
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: but compared to the rest of his party he's not a rapey-douchey caveman of a social conservative.
somedude210: Diogenes: somedude210: I voted for Huntsman in super tuesday (after he quit) and I'd do it again.As a person he could have given Obama a run for his money. As someone seeking this GOP's nomination he was toast. Sad, indeed.I do appreciate the fact that he didn't sit down and shut up and fall in line after he was out of the running.Same, made me want to campaign for him if he makes another run. He really was a uniter/fairly liberal//like a Lincoln Republican of old
somedude210: I voted for Huntsman in super tuesday (after he quit) and I'd do it again.
somedude210: SilentStrider: Congrats democrats. You're starting to tap a previously untapped resource.Don't blow it.Nominate someone in 2016 who can also tap this resource.Who, exactly?/Huntsman 2016!
