Sad: Elementary School Kids Swoon for Obama

Justin Bieber must be jealous.

Even as Obama's approval ratings plumb new depths among grown-ups, it appears the pre-teen demographic is still solidly in the tank for him.

Gee, I wonder why.

This, from Obama's visit to Kokomo, Indiana yesterday:
"Second unannounced stop... Sycamore Elementary, where around 300 deliriously excited and screaming kids lined up outside. Did pool mention screaming? Think Michael Jackson in Tokyo type screaming. ‘Omigod he touched me! He touched me!' yelled one little girl in pink. ‘He's right up there!' yelled one boy.

The president worked the rope line, grinning, as wave after wave of kids grabbed his hand, fell back, then rushed up to grab his hand again, double dipping."

Interesting way for these kids to react to the man saddling them with a soul-crushing mountain of debt.

Or perhaps they're just excited that unemployment is now only 12% among their parents.
