I recall Rush Limbaugh predicting that Barack Obama was going to pi$$ off the 'youth' and the 'low information voter'.

He said it wouldn't be a political deed, but rather something like dissing Justin Bieber that would be the catalyst in bringing Obama down to earth politically.

I believe a concerted effort by the GOP to produce a hard-hitting 30 second that is tantamount to Ryan throwing Granny off that cliff is what we need.

...see how easy that was?   :laugh:

Rush was right.

Going to generalize here a second. Low info voters don't care about anything that is not in their field of vision at the time. The young expect technology to be instant gratification and perfect every single time, without fail. Not for them the joys of spending 20 hours downloading a music file - they want HD movies streamed in real time.

The Obamacare balls up might not break this camel's back, but it has started people who are normally on the Dem reservation asking questions. It is now up to the Repubs to keep them asking. Some will get bored, others will scream "hype" and go look at pictures of cats, so it is a delicate balance.
