WWII didn't make them that generation, the Depression did. They weren't great, they were molded that way by a society that didn't hand them squat.

You get what you "pay" for. Most of these 20-somethings spent the majority of their years with a Republican controlled White House and a ton of developmental years with a Republican majority in Congress. They ALSO were born into the greatest economic boon (the 90's) we had ever seen and assume it's a birthright thing.
