It’s a generational thing, but maybe the young folks are waking up … finally.

A New York Times article reported that the president is encountering more youthful skepticism than in 2008: “The nation’s first-time voters are less enthusiastic about him … and cite a growing lack of faith in government in general.”

Give the Obama Youth credit for this: At least — in the last election — they didn’t vote their self-interest.

In the cold light of day, the youthful idealists, believers and activists of 2008 look like the lamentable saps, patsies and suckers of 2012.

In 2008, candidate Obama promised young voters the moon, and all they got was their old childhood bedroom back in their parents’ house. By one count, half are unemployed or underemployed.

He sold a new kind of politics and gave them more debt and more entitlement spending that they will labor to fund all their working lives.

But, hey, did you see Obama “slow jam” the news on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon”?

But, not all youth are setting themselves up to be duped again.

The below 1-minute video —  produced by students at the Univ. of Tennessee — is approaching 1 million Youtube hits.

Maybe there’s hope for change …
