Democrats walk away from “Old Demos” for young
Get right back here, Obama. I worked hard to get you elected the first time. You made promises and I believed you were going to make changes I want. So, don’t think that you can walk away from them and replace my old vote with a young fresh one. Besides, there are not enough of them around to replace the old ones.
Furthermore, we haven’t given up on your intellect. However, you must transform your initiation by fire into the Presidency into more effective and decisive governance. Your instinct to stop wars and to transform the economy into a new energy model is spot on.
You may not appreciate the criticism, but take it as guidance from the wise. Now, get back to work. You’ll need the young vote, but you had better hang on to what you’ve got.
