          this "senior bashing" here. While it is true that many who have voted for Romney are of my age group, there were enough who didn't and voted for Obama, so sterotyping an entire age group is wrong.
          Many of us "seniors" were the folks who marched to end the war in Vietnam, who fought for racial equality and woman's rights. It was not an easy path, we were tear gassed and arrested and maligned by much of the country, however, we marched on.
          It was us "seniors" who saw our Democratic and moral leaders shot to death before our very eyes, and we still did not deter from doing what was right.
          Finally when Barack Obama was elected President in 2008, we saw much of what we fought for come to be. Because of this many of us also fought to get him re-elected in 2012, and I totally resent being lumped together with people of my age group who watch Fox and hang on their every word, we are not all like that. Senior Citizens don't have a block on stupidity, there are plenty who are are not of my generation who are Fox news junkies too. So please knock it off and please give us some respect.
