Um: Social-media savvy administration refers to young supporters as #WHYouth?

posted at 9:21 pm on December 2, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

I’m with Ben Howe. I think it’s a trap:

The White House declared on Twitter Monday that it will hold a youth summit via Google Hangout with the guy who threw away his regular role on “House” to be a public liaison in the Obama administration and a woman charged with tweeting about HealthCare.gov for the administration 24/7. At least they’re not advising anyone on how to choose employment wisely. Sheesh.

Maybe Google Hangout won’t break down while they’re holding the event.

I mean, the GOP is expected to make dumb social media mistakes. But these guys? Turns out they’re not good at any of the stuff we’ve always been told they were. In the meantime, the Photos ‘shop themselves and the tweets roll on.

As I’ve said after Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the IRS scandal, it’s not conservatives’ fault when the White House lives down to our very worst expectations.

The first thing a Republican president will do is disband the Obama Youth and relegate it to history’s ash heap with the other ‘youth movement’ that ended up doing so much good in the late 30s and early 40s.

Does anybody have a problem with that? Democrats?

Why would dems have a problem with that? They will just twist it into a “Why do the Republicans hate youth?” campaign attack. And the media will willingly help them set that tone.

Oh, I forgot, “And they’re racist!” will of course be added to that. Because they are “Obama’s youth”, don’t ‘cha know.
