Laura Ingraham hosted P.J. O'Rourke, author of The Baby Boom and How It Got That Way.
O'Rourke described President Obama as a typical boomer. He said the Baby Boomers acted on what their parents felt. The Boomers had the luxury of being to act on these impulses. He deemed Obama as an odd duck with a different upbringing. He said the Boomers love politics as it is easy and not a real job. O'Rourke agreed with Ingraham that Obama is good at campaigning and the trappings of office, but not governing. He also agreed that Boomers need to be connected emotionally to issues, never mind the facts. O'Rourke said the upside is thatBoomers get along with others and aren't prejudiced. He predicts the following generations will have contempt for the Boomers being square and won't see the economic decline as quickly. He said the dependence on the government has been a long term coming.
