Mr. President, What Do You Think of ‘Girls’?

posted on May 1, 2012

At Tablet, “The Scroll” editor Marc Tracy tells President Obama that he wants to be “doubly pandered to.” Tracy is, after all, both a Millennial and Jewish, two constituencies that the president “overwhelmingly won in 2008, but who lately have feinted toward straying toward the Republicans (in the Jews’ case) or staying home (in the Millennials’ case).” The difference between the two, Tracy suggests, is that Jews are “iffier on Obama because of things he has done (pressured Israel, not fully backed Israel on Iran),” while the politically liberal Millennials are upset by things left undone “(Guantanamo Bay is still open, he hasn’t done all that much high-profile on the environment).” In either case, “endless emails about George Clooney aren’t going to cut it. George Clooney is, like, old.”
