President Obama’s mojo has stopped working, even among the young college crowd — those he once considered part of his base.
When speaking in Pennsylvania Wednesday, 15 community college students were hand-picked to stand in the bleachers behind the president to show excitement for the cameras.
Although audience reaction can be heard at appropriate times during his remarks, the same isn’t reflected in the faces behind him.
What he got instead was silence and blank stares.
Even when Obama turned around to address the students directly to make a point about a partnership program between private business and higher education, he failed to elicit so much as a smile.
According to The Daily Caller:
Obama flew to the Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., so he could tout a new spending program that is intended to encourage technical training at community colleges.
Oakdale is a suburb of Pittsburgh, and is part of the 18th Congressional District, now held by Republican Tim Murphy. Oakdale’s population is roughly 1,500, down from roughly 2,000 in 1980.
