In theory, I understand your point... but there are a lot of people who were 14, 15, 16, and 17 yrs old during the 2008 election, who are now old enough to vote. And no matter how you slice it... Obama does well with the youth (uninformed and idealistic) vote.

You are correct. I think he's given up on the youth of 2008...they grew up and found how how screwed they were, mostly.
So he's working on a whole new batch. And he does appeal to them.
I also agree it would be folly to assume he has no chance of re-election.

And I am in no way stating that I believe Obama will or should win... believe me. I am just saying, as Republicans/Conservatives/Libertarians... we can't get lazy and assume that Romney "has it in the bag" at any point. The worst thing we can do is allow ourselves to believe that Obama doesn't have a chance at re-election... because that's simply not the case.

Obama's up by seven in Ohio, and five in Virginia and Florida -- all bigger margins than the Hopenchange sweep of 2008 --  so all is lost, Republicans.  Do yourselves a favor and pack it in now.  Not so fast, cautions Allahpundit:

The Democratic turnout advantage in this model would be only a point less in Virginia and Florida than it was at the apex of Hopenchange in 2008, and in Ohio it would actually be two points greater. That’s not happening in November, but O’s lead in each state is wide enough here...
