Cleveland Plain Dealer:May 12, 2010, Greencastle, Ind. – “Last month I spent a few days with the students in the Scholars Program in Media DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana,” Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Connie Schultz writes Cleveland Plain Dealer today. “They are mostly in the Midwest, most thoughtful, amusing, and sometimes smile when you win because not enough was raised to give strangers the benefit of the doubt. While I was at DePauw, I have met with students individually to talk about journalism. In reality, the talks have just started there, and then wove their way into the discussions about life in general. One of the reasons why they hang out with young people: they’re smarter than they know. ”
Schultz (pictured above) talks about his interaction with freshman Kyle Robbins (seen right), Robbins 200910mgolfnoting Kyle, “Kyle gives me hope for the future of the Republican Party. I support the left, but I know reflexive weight we need the other side to keep the boat afloat, and much of what passes for Republican politics lately is to turn off a lot of young people like Kyle.
In its deliberations, Schultz said that Robbins said, “I am part of a new movement of young people like me who are fiscally conservative, but no doubt the sincerity of the other side.” The 19-year-old added: “We want to hear. We know that we need to stop alienating groups of people. We need immigration reform, for example, but Arizona law is not the way to go. I am pro- life, but that also means I can not support removing the health care of people. Yes, I would like to see the solution in the private sector, but it’s really hard for Republicans to look at the rest of the country and say “You do not has the right to health care. ”
The columnist advises his readers, “Kyle writes a blog for your kind of media scholars. I asked if he would share in a public place for others to read what’s on your mind. Agreed.An extract of his first post:
“The left has its youth movement, and our time has come to answer that call right. Washington is not listening. Why should we be the party of the rich? Why should we be the party of the silver spoon ? Our fiscal and social conservative values can and do exist, but we can not continue to alienate the less fortunate, social awareness, environmentalists cleveland_plain_dealer.gifthe. We must be a party of understanding, a group willing to work with our opponents on the opposite side to achieve the best outcome for our constituents. ”
The column concludes: “In his first e-mail to me, Kyle wrote:” I would love to have this great dialogue going. “Count on it, Kyle.”
