  •  Bad question, phrased poorly (0+ / 0-)

    The only choices were smaller government or larger government. The issue is much more nuanced.

    That said Obama's OFA crew willkeep focusing on young, immigrant voters. They tend to be low information voters easily swayed by vague messaging.

    Thing is, Obama's not up for re election. His crew needs to be detached from the Dem Party. We need to abandon the strategy of lying to voters.

      so according to you, young nonwhites and immigrants are dumb.  That speaks volumes about you and your views.

      •  Not at all, you know that (0+ / 0-)

        Recent immigrants are more, likely to have some language barriers, particularly when it comes to reading or watching political news and analysis. Those who are lower income don't  have the time needed to spend researching candidates and issues.  They tend to vote the way other people  in their community tell them to vote.  The latter is also a common trait among young, single women voters, especially those with children. That was another demographic exploited by Obama in 2008. Too busy to research issues and candidates, feeling slightly intimidated by government and politicians.

        I can't recall another Dem leader in recent history who cynically exploited people this way.
