    Obama seeks to 'reconnect...young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women' for

    The Democratic National Committee this morning released this clip of the president rallying the troops, if rather coolly, for 2010. Obama's express goal: "reconnecting" with the voters who voted for the first time in 2008, but who may not plan to vote in the lower-profile Congressional elections this year.

    Obama speaks with unusual demographic frankness about his coalition in his appeal to "young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again."

    I'd link the video of the President speaking, but this mac... no,
    the video plays... but this crapmac doesn't allow for much else. It's horrible!

    I do find it interesting that the Tea Party is racist... yet here the President of the United States of America is playing the race card so... blatantly. White Males, Asians... you need not apply.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes... telling a demographic that tends not to vote to get out there and vote is so outrageous.

    Now who's being PC?

    Obama was I assume directing his message at demographics that don't have such a great habit of getting to the voting booths, and these demographics make up a larger portion of the Democratic party than the Republicans, so I'm not really sure how Orion demonstrated that he didn't watch the video. Trying to encourage your base to vote only makes sense, imho.

    I really don't know how women voters fall between the two parties.

    If this CNN exit poll from 2004 is anything to go by then Obama targeted his message accurately.

    I didn't really see it as a race card. It was more President Obama wanting demographics that may not be as inclined to go out and vote this year as they did in 2008. Plus if I remember correctly those were the groups that came out the most and voted for him. So, he is wrong for trying to get those who voted for him to vote for others too?

    Actually I did.

    What he's saying is true based on the available data.

    White young males can apply.

    He also didn't mention gays, so he's secretly a gay-bashing bigot.

    PS.... I've heard that some of his best friends are white
