Many older voters tend to view such young voters disparagingly as being grossly uninformed as the "people on the street" often featured (with great humor) by Jay Leno in his famous "JayWalking" segments. A person intimately involved in creating the "YOUTH VOTE 08" video said: "A major factor behind creation of this video is to provide a mechanism for young voters to counter what a self-described 'geezer' said about 'young voters.'" The self-described "geezer" (who, for obvious reasons, refused to identify himself) condescendingly said: "Typical 'young voters' today simply doesn't have the intellectual discipline to view an informative video lasting more than 30 seconds and don't possess a historical knowledge-base extending backwards in time more than a few months at most--- in essence, they will be simply 'Jaywalking' to the voting booth."
In contrast, most young voters don't see themselves as being "uninformed" as are those featured in the "JayWalking" segments. Many such young voters resenting efforts to characterize their generation as being "uninformed" are determined to refute such characterization. Some of them simply attack their critics as being merely being tools of the "anti-Obama" forces, but others are seeking ways to refute such criticisms. It's for this latter group that this new video, "YOUTH VOTE 08" was created. It shows them how to refute claims by anti-Obama forces that they "lack sufficient attention span" and knowledge of history to understand the issues rather than merely focusing on superficial aspects of a candidacy.
The "Youth Vote 08" video and the steps for refuting the anti-Obama forces' characterization of young voters as lacking sufficient attention span as as lacking an understanding of the historical context for evaluating the issues and qualifications of candidates are at http://PoliSat.Com/YouthVote08.htm.
