And they say science majors are for the smart kids:
Surprise! ‘Undecided’ debate questioner at Tuesday’s debate declares for Obama
In a shocking development, the 20-year-old exercise science major who led off Tuesday’s presidential debate seeking reassurance from the candidates about his job prospects has apparently endorsed President Barack Obama.
The Associated Press reports that Adelphi University student Jeremy Epstein said Wednesday he still clings to the “undecided” label, but would cast his vote for Obama if the election were held today.
Epstein told the AP that he was dazzled when Obama gazed into his eyes.
“I felt like he was saying he wanted a bright future for me, that he was talking about the youth of America,” Epstein said.
Epstein did not correctly recall each candidate’s answer to his probing question, however.
Part of Obama’s response to Epstein’s question involved an unsolicited digression about manufacturing jobs.
“I want to build manufacturing jobs in this country again,” Obama said, before he took credit for saving the American auto industry.
Epstein apparently walked away from the debate thinking that Romney, not Obama, had brought up the manufacturing industry.
“Gov. Romney went into a discussion about manufacturing jobs,” Epstein said, according to the Associated Press. “I don’t think people in college like me are looking for that kind of job right now.”
The transcript of Tuesday’s debate shows that Romney made no mention of manufacturing in his response to Epstein’s question, or in any part of the exchange that followed the question.
Nobody under thirty should be allowed to vote.
But wait! There’s more!
Did I say he was a science major? I meant “exercise science.” From Adelphi University:
Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science
Exercise Science, Health Studies, Physical Education, and Sport Management
The Department of Exercise Science, Health Studies, Physical Education and Sports Management offers undergraduate programs which lead to career options in exercise science. Specialized tracks in exercise science include fitness specialization, and pre-physical therapy.
In addition to the University’s General Education requirements, students seeking Exercise Science must complete 41 credits of Exercise Science Foundations, including a three credit practicum; 19 credits of Exercise Science electives and 32 additional elective credits. The Exercise Science Program prepares students for careers in strength and conditioning, exercise leadership and personal training. Many students continue on to their Master’s Degree in Exercise Science. Courses include learning objectives for the American College of Sports Medicine, Health/Fitness Specialist Certification.
Three years from now this choomer is gonna be sitting in Zuccotti Park whinging that he can’t get a job to pay off his student loans. (Current tuition and fees at Adelphi is about $30,000 year.)
