The Greatest Generation Will Save Us One Last Time

Ever since the AARP decided to endorse Obamacare, way back in 2009, they’ve been losing members by the thousands.

Considering AARP has made a living off seniors for decades, it’s hard to believe they misread their members so badly.

What possibly could’ve been the cause of their misdirected endorsement?

Follow the money.

I learned early on, as a young politician in Massachusetts, arguing with seniors makes about as much political sense as declaring you’re a Nazi war criminal.

About a year and a half ago, a candidate for Mayor in Pittsfield made the mistake of criticizing the traditional values of our senior citizens, as he defended his sexual orientation.

He lost.

Not because of his orientation, but because he thought seniors could be kicked around.

As we learned watching Michelle Malkin’s video, the kickbacks that AARP management is looking to scarf up, is their Waterloo.

So there you have it…Obama’s Midas touch costs  icons like Oprah millions of viewers and now AARP millions of members.

The 2010 mid-term elections, which saw a 62 seat swing for Republicans in the House, and 6 in the Senate, was all about the outrage of seniors.

The bad news for Obama is that most of them are still alive.

Thank God for longevity in the U.S.

The greatest generation will save us again on election day.

This time they’ll vote even harder against the guy whose name is on the boot imprinted on their backside.

Obama won Florida in 2008 by 2.5%…the Tampa Bay Times, as of November 3rd, has Romney up 6%…that’s an 8.5% swing away from Obama…if that doesn’t tell you where seniors’ heads are at, nothing will.
