Video: College students analyze energy policy, Obama job performance

posted at 12:45 pm on March 22, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Here at Hot Air, we want to bring you only the tough, breaking news.  Where better to find breaking news than … spring break on the beach?  Fox’s Jesse Watters goes on assignment for The O’Reilly Factor and digs into the mindset of the youth vote on energy policy, economics, and, er … beer:

Stick around for the discussion afterwards, as Bill O’Reilly puts Jesse Watters on the hot seat for having selectively edited the interviews for the biggest laughs. He’s making a great point, of course; the comedic “man on the street” interviews rarely show the people who actually know the issues and facts because, well, it’s not terribly funny to watch someone who knows what they’re talking about. In the end, though, this segment is really all about having some fun, perhaps a bit at the expense of the students who weren’t told that math would be expected on spring break, and to see good-looking people on the beach.

Still, it doesn’t sound as if Barack Obama’s star is exactly rising among young voters, either.

Exactly how it should be, exactly how it was, exactly how it will be…that was great and brought back some great memories.

I once had a sociology professor devote the better part of 90 minutes on the subject of reading body language, and in particular, the tea leaves about when an attractive young woman places her hands atop her head, leaving her, ahem, chestal area rather undefended in the presence of a male.

It was the most attentive the guys in his class were all year.

Superbly entertaining.

Hey thanks Ed. Uh, what was that about?

I am so sick and tired of all the crap southerners are expected to just take […].

I feel your pain. But everyone has been taken off the list, and without us, I think it might get ugly. All that’s left is the South and Catholics. Think of America as a crock-pot and the South as a vent. Eventually, political correctness will rot, people will be able to breath again, and we’ll be able to push-back a little.

This is the reason that God invented sunglasses.

lol … I was just looking for “mirrored aviators” last month and you just completely dimed me out. But they were really for greater UV protection this summer. Ix-nay on the unglasses-say.

they hadn’t earned the responsibility and privilege. Still haven’t, in my opinion.

Still so young they are voting “cool” and “uncool” as well. It’s too young. I’m 100% for military emancipation (at any age — you serve, you vote) and raising the general voting age up toward 30.
