Parker: Why The Obama Bubble Still Hasn't Burst

By Star Parker

Can there be political bubbles like financial bubbles?

Financial bubbles, inflated by hopes and dreams, burst when reality negates any possibility that those hopes and dreams will be realized. At that point, sky-high stock or bond or real estate prices come crashing down to earth.

Can the same thing happen in politics? Can a skilled politician, who has become popular with soaring rhetoric and promises, deflate when it starts becoming clear that he is not going to deliver?

Of course, I am thinking about our president. Mitt Romney demonstrated in the first presidential debate that the considerable gap between President Obama's rhetoric and his performance makes him a vulnerable candidate. Yet the president's bubble seems far from bursting.

Romney, in the debate, was aggressive but deferential toward Obama. He was deferential because, despite the poor state of the country after almost four years of the Obama administration, Obama is still a popular president. Recent polling shows his approval remains about 50 percent. At similar stages in the presidencies of the last two presidents voted out after one term, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, their popularity ratings were in the 30s.

What accounts for Obama's Teflon? How is it that, after almost four years of terrible economic results -- high unemployment, sluggish growth, huge deficits and mounting national debt -- that Obama's persona is not more tarnished?

Shouldn't today's economic facts on the ground be sufficient to puncture the Obama bubble? One part of the answer to this puzzle is the changing demographics of the country. The United States today is a nation that is much less white, much less married, and less traditional than it once was. Each of these trends reflects a rise in constituencies with values supportive of Obama's worldview -- activist government and/or moral relativism.

What was once the exception to the rule in America -- not being white, not being married, not having traditional views on family, sex and abortion -- is now becoming the rule. And these constituencies are becoming sufficiently large to elect a president.

National Journal released a poll right before the debate showing Obama and Romney dead even nationwide -- 47 percent each -- among likely voters. The poll shows Obama's white support at just 38 percent. Obama was elected in 2008 with 43 percent of the white vote. He could be re-elected with even less. In Gallup's polling of last week, Obama's approval among white voters stood at 39 percent. He gets 38 percent approval among those who attend church weekly, compared with 55 percent among those who attend church seldom or never. And his approval among married voters is 40 percent, compared with 57 percent among those not married.

According to data compiled by the Tax Foundation, the large majority of those now filing tax returns in the U.S. are single. In 1960, 65 percent of all tax filers were married and 35 percent single. In 2010, it's reversed -- 61 percent of filers were single and 39 percent married.

When Obama pushes for taxing the rich, he's not just pitting those with the highest incomes against everyone else. He's pitting married people against singles. Eight of 10 tax filers in the top 20 percent of earners are married. The majority of filers of middle income and below are single.

It's really a cultural divide -- one you can be sure Obama is very aware of -- that is keeping his bubble inflated. The fact that Obama's support is still this strong despite his terrible record sends a clear warning to those looking for a new birth of American freedom.

Romney and Ryan should consider talking to these constituencies on directly -- blacks, Hispanics, singles -- explaining why America's future hinges on shutting down the government plantation.

    Star: You’re exactly right and that is why we must work harder and place more emphasis on WHY this country is a great country. Ozero and his crowd did not make America great; it was made great by those who loved and sacrificed for it. The ‘what can the government do for me crowd’ should look at what Democrat John Kennedy said: “Ask not what the country can do for me; but rather what can I do for the country.”

      We have now a whole different Ball Game it is the devaluing of the dollar the people don’t understand economics that they have been Screwed the Cost os living every day has gone up but the Dollar buys less , the best I have figured out the buying power of the Dollar is around 35% of what it would buy when Jimmy Carter was President .which means the dollar is worth 17 Cents , the democrats and republicans are guilty of manulipulating the dollar to make it appear that it has value
      The fed is the bad guy for doing it in secrecy .

      Jack Welch former CEO of General Electric who owns MSNBC was right when he said; “Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers,” ……now all they have left is become the liars to attack Romney and Ryan as Liars, This is the new paradigm of the politically desperate. In debates it is the Liar when face to face with he who accuses to be the liar, just looks down in embarrassment unable to refute the lies. He is the one so consumed with trying to remember the three lies he told about Romney to cover the first one that his brain processor locks up in over load and cannot respond. Watch the repeat,, when Ryan rips Biden for the exact same reason,,,,when reason and logic overcome the B.S. of the emotion and the B.S. of the moment of immediate gratification which the Taxpaying public finally is beginning to understand will be followed by years of regret, more taxes and more American economic pain and moral pain degradation.

      At Least Jack Welch has seen the light and loves the truth and loves his country more than he loves his Party or his power. Obama take note and you might earn a few votes instead of stealing them under the smoke and mirrors of your failed socialist ideology of deception.

    I have been saying for weeks that the truth bubble of the fourth estate’s manipulating Main Stream Media will burst just as assuredly as our economic real estate bubble burst in 2008. I also said for months when those who doubted Romney in the primaries, that our man Romney DID have the capability to burst that bubble given a level playing field in open debate. If you enjoyed the Romney debate, just wait till Thursday when the Paul Ryan Pin of truth, pricks and pops that pinheaded overblown bloviating bumbling Biden bubble gum brain and makes things so sticky his mouth will freeze shut in embarrassment. Truthful leadership which is free, will again overcome emotional leadership which is always costly in the long run. Nature abhors a vacuum and Biden’s empty Liberal brain is about to hear a great sucking sound when he and his party’s truth bubble finally bursts in debate.

    A truly outstanding analysis of this presidents ability to “hold on” after his four years of selling anti-traditional American and socialist snake oil.

    America is rapidly approaching the point to where those of us that support the values that made this country great are becomimg the minority. The American people made a serious mistake by allowing the government to open our doors to millions of illegal and legal aliens that do not share traditional American values. The Progressives have been addicting the under-classes to welfare programs for years in order to buy their votes. If the social programs and open immigration continues, the Progressives will realize their dream of fundamentally changing America by using foreign influence and social handouts to achieve their goals.

    How can conservatives appeal to black voters after all the years of brain-washing from the Democrat party? There is no chance that blacks will ever vote conservative in any significant numbers. Middle class hispanics that recognize the danger of open borders might be reached in numbers by the Republicans. Single women are interested in only one thing and that is financial security provided by the taxpayers.

    Non-traditional value voters however do not understand that their destruction of traditional America will eventually result in the end of their free ride and the end of the greatest country the world has ever known.

      It’s not impossible, Patriot. I often asked how Arkansas could have so much good sense on the ground and vote Democratic over and over. Today, we have three Republican congressmen (4 total). It took time. If we show good will and allow minority Republicans to rise to the level of their talents, it will happen.

      Smartway — many Americans share your dismay with the media’s approach to covering up for this socialist president that has no respect for anything about traditional America. The media shares Obama’s world view, that America is bad and should be diminished. When you come to understand this, you will understand Obama, the Democrat party and many of America’s enemies.

      Agnesday – I can appreciate your comments. I am also from Arkansas and watched the recent rise of the Republican party on the national level. I have no explanation as to why Arkansans will support a Democrat governor that supports illegal immigration and senators Lincoln and Pryor, who both were enablers of Obama. Arkansas people are in general very conservative but have often voted the opposite. It appears that the pendulum may be swinging in the right direction. I hope your predictions are correct.

      patriot, I am not sure about all of your presumptions on ethnicity and gender, however there is not doubt America is in decline, ranked I believe 34 in education. But couldn’t it be more related to education, rather than race or sex? When I was a single, I was never as you describe, and since being married feel my husband holds me back from achieving more. He is not as ambitious or driven as me. I think it more so has something to do with education, both level of and content of.

      No doubt America is losing ground in the area of education. For that we can thank the teachers unions who embrace incompetence as average and average as stellar. True champions of less for more. Education is only as good as the system that delivers it. In that regard, we are in major trouble, both as a result of what union teachers fail to deliver and the apathy and neglect of government dependent parents.

      Redsea – You are correct in stating that education is a major factor in our current situation. In many cases it may not be a lack of eduaction as much as it is the wrong kind of education.

      I think if you check statistics you will find that they will support my comments on ethenicity and gender. You will also find a parallel with lack of education particularly with minorities.

      I did not intend to paint all minority people or single women into the welfare class but statistics actually show in general that these voting blocks support socialist candidates and policies.

      You are basically correct in your analysis but there is another area of deception. Not just the influx of immigrants but the influx of ultra-liberal educators in our elementary schools, high schools, and universities are at fault. Remember, the likes of Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill have infiltrated our educational institutions from the K-PhD and are still allowed to instruct. I believe they have and are causing the change of our cultural worldview.

    “Not being white, not being married, not having traditional views on family, sex and abortion — is now becoming the rule.”,,,,,,,,,,because that is what we have allowed to be taught in our schools which edify failure over integrity, children over adults, poverty over success and foreign socialist ideas which edity the collective of losers over the American values of individual success. So what did this bring us,,,,a government and nation run by children in adult bodies of the immediate gratification in a land of well earned poverty. This is what the Democrats like Pelosi, Reid ,Backdoor Barney Frank and “Lead from Behind” Barak Hussein Obama have blessed America with. It is Time to return to sanity and the principles of self sacrifice and self-government which once made this nation great.

      I fear self-sacrifice and self-government are such foreign concepts to the Idiocracy that they will never understand what they are throwing away until they have lost it and have to live with the consequences,and then I fear it will be too late–because they have neither the will nor the intelligence to take it back after they’ve lost it.

      The tragedy is that the rest of us will be forced to take that ride with them–just like we’ve been forced to watch “their” president dismantle our liberties and our beloved country day by day. You could say we’ve been hostages to this idiot crowd for the past four years.

      Of course we share the blame for being asleep at the switch and letting these amoral socialists take control of the schools, colleges, media and government piece by piece until they had control of everything.

      It has been said that “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty” — we were not vigilant, and we are now paying the price for that failure. I only pray that we have not awakened too late, and that we can still prevent the destruction of our country and our liberties by these fools.

      Yes Oleteabag, I agree with you, however there are many who try and do something, however not enough. And Illuminatuo is right, it is in education. That is what I believe anyway, because I have had the opportunity to live in a 3rd world country, where there are not a lot of people flocking to immigrate, so there are no party divides (until recently)or ethnic divides, and while being a very wealthy nation, it is impoverished due to the lack of educational standards.

      Our founding fathers understood that in order for a Country ruled by a people of Self-Governing principles, the most basic requirement is the ability of its citizens to be able to govern SELF. For Obama and the socialist democrats to succeed they must first remove our ability to govern self beginning in the education of our children in dependency, followed by enslavement of their minds to the snare of the pleasure of immediate gratification. We will see in the debates more offer of the immediate sound bites by Obama, followed by the enrichment of real logical solutions by Ryan and Romney that take time but produce lasting results. The people are tired of these traps and want Romney/Ryan to spring them in these debates from the socialist snares to regain their freedoms to think and act in success.

    I would truly love to see the polling sample that produced that 50% approval rating. If it is as weighted to the left as most polls have been, how can we have any confidence in that figure?

    Here we go again with the attempts to dispirit the right. It only makes us more determined to turn out and vote in record numbers, after all look what happened in the mid-term elections, I don’t remember anyone predicting that result and I would bet there is going to be another big surprise for the left on the night of November 6th. Considering all the people the President has alienated, how could the result possibly be favorable for him?

      That is only the beginning of the work that needs to be done, to take back our schools, media and society from these self-destructive fools before it is too late.

    -He has all of the gay people.

    Star has a point, perhaps it’s time to be direct and brutally honest. Admittedly, it is a difficult task to explain to government dependent simpletons that without wealth, the plantation goes out of business. People with no self-respect however, have none for others and are happy to exist on the efforts of somebody else. We are on the verge of a financial catastrophe too many believe cannot happen here. The ignorant think the gravy train will keep on chugging forever and react with phony outrage when the reality of paying the tab is thrown in their faces. Tax the rich is their battle cry – and when we have taken all they have, who pays the bill then? Who creates more wealth? The OWS mope in the welfare line who, for the most part, has all the brains God bestowed on a gifted gnat? Talking to the transgenerationally dependent is an exercise in futility. The gimmie generation is overwhelming us. The social safety net has turned into the Obama money bottle. Unless and until people are either motivated (or forced by circumstances) to carry themselves, they will continue to vote for government largess just as de Tocqueville predicted.

    I cannot understand why every single Democrat in Washington agrees 100% with every and anything Obama says and does. Not one has stood up and said “Wait a minute. Maybe we should think this through a little more”. No, it’s just “OK Barry, You are Right Barry. Absolutely Barry, etc,etc.”
    I was born in the early 50′s and for a very, very long time, this was a country to be proud of but in the last 4 years, I am not so sure anymore. No party really has a platform for the American People,,,they have an agenda for the Government entity and the average American seems to have lost his “voice”. Obama WILL get the vote of the poor and destitute because they all believe that he “gives them stuff” which in essence is absolutely the truth. And the simplicity that his supporters attach to it,,”He gave us a phone” really? That is how you judge a president of the United States??? That is ignorant but then again, look what you are dealing with.

      I’ve been thinking about this slavish acquiescence to everything the Great Eared One says and does, too, but then I recalled that in the liberal bible, it is a cardinal sin to EVER say a black person is wrong, or responsible for ANYTHING, no matter how stupid and self-destructive his/her behavior. And so no matter WHAT they think of Obama’s performance, they will NEVER admit he is wrong. Because to admit HE is wrong is to admit THEY are wrong, and Chapter 1, Verse 1 in the liberal bible is “I am never wrong. No matter how much evidence to the contrary exists, I will refuse to see it. If I have to destroy the world to keep my delusions intact, I will.”

      I’ve always been astonished at the depth of stupidity and delusional thinking that is required for a liberal “true believer” to remain one–but there you are.

      The liberal delusion is why if we care about our country, we must NEVER let them get this much power again. Do NOT vote for a liberal candidate, or anyone with a (D) after their name, ever again, because they have proven they cannot be trusted with this much power, and further, they are too stupid and DELUSIONAL to run things. If we wish to keep our liberties and our Republic safe, we cannot let these people anywhere near the reins of power!

      Bill Clinton did at the convention when he said “the President wants to totally rebuild America from the ground up”. That was a warning…not an endorsement!

    Another great article Star. I agree with you and I’ve been saying for a long time this is not just about the economy and jobs. It is also about the morality of the USA….the “social issues”. Since the 60′s this country has been going down the sewer. Sex has become a recreational sport. Adultery, shacking up, “hooking up” and Divorce is common. There is no more feelings of shame and self- respect is almost gone. We can not keep killing thousands of babies every day through abortion, mock God and His establishment of marriage between one man and one woman to accommodate the radical homosexual agenda and expect the USA to prosper.

    2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

    America has a cancer. So do I. Cancer is when bad cells overtake good cells. The doctors say my cancer is incurable; thank God America’s cancer is different… and we have a choice. For over 200 years, most all of the “Cells” in America’s population were Givers. Now, not so. Some became Takers by the choices they made; some have recently become Takers through no fault of their own. We’re in some tough times for America; and no one knows, for sure, who has chosen to be a Taker; and who has been trapped by happenstance. So unlike the rapidly multiplying Takers in my situation, there is a cure for America. Make every person standing for election on November 6th take a simple pledge… “I will support any idea that offers Trapped Takers a chance to prove themselves.” Then we must humanely seek out those who are vulnerable and deserve the help of a just nation. What’s left is America’s cancerous tumor. I’m not the best person to recommend treatment.

    Those of us who are baby boomers have observed this slow but steady shift to the progressive left coming for many decades, probably since the anti-war movement of the 60′s. The radical leftists of that generation ultimately became teachers in our public schools and universities, spreading their socialist ideology on to the next generation. Those on the left are united in their mindset of ending capitalism in America and replacing it with socialism. They believed their day had finally come when Obama was elected as president and he has accomplished much of what they wanted. However, he will need a second term to finish the job of destroying America’s free market economic system. They will fight tooth and nail and by any means possible to prevent his removal from the White House before that job is done. They know that if Obama is voted out now, their dream of a socialist America will disappear for many decades to come. Expect this election to be the dirtiest and most fraud ridden in our nation’s history coming from the left. Both sides have a great deal to lose come November 6th, 2012.

    Most folks who give you stuff are popular…as long as they got it and keep giving it. BHO has been giving away lots of free stuff…not his of course, but none the less free stuff. He is popular with those getting it. He is not popular with those having to pay for it. That is why the vote is pretty much evenly divided. If he can buy a few more votes he will sty in power forever, or until the working folks have had enough and pull up and leave, or there is a major revolution.

    Honestly, what we have is a popular iconic figure as president, Propaganda in Chief. Does anyone know if there was ever before a president who had a website doing e-marketing and selling products with his private logo? It is completely ridiculous. I am surprised he’s not selling “Obama action figures” of himself as the leader of a DEVGRU unit.

    What a clear and concise assessment. When historians a 100 years from now ask how our liberties and system of governing collapsed… this lady’s assessment is spot on. A harbinger of our current state? Read:”None dare call it treason” :: 1964 :: John A. Stormer. The guy’s accuracy is phenominal.

      And yet a Black who had succeeded in the traditional American fashion through ability, education and hard work, Herman Cain, was vilified by the same manipulated MSM that worships the glibness of Obama.

      Twenty four hundred years ago in Greece Plato wrote of the difference between WIT and WISDOM, so good talkers have been around a long time and in the current campaign we see a candidate with an image of WIT running against a candidate with proven financial WISDOM. Greece’s “Golden Moment” passed when those without WISDOM took over and ours is in danger of also dying for the same reason.

      All those who wrote our Constitution and Bill of Rights had read the classics as well as Edward Gibbon and were well aware of the danger of those catering to the mob by passing out goodies from the public treasury.

    Ms. Parker…I’ll give you that article’s statement on the changing demographics being a reason for Obama’s bubble not bursting. However, I am convinced that the number one reason his bubble has not burst, is that no one that believes and idols him are able to hear the truth about the dismal mess he has made of this country. I’m talking about the “lame-stream-media”. They alone are the largest financial contributor of the Obama campaign. Every news report on TV, national magazines and newspaper ads are actually “paid-for-ads” promoting Obama and his lies and tearing down anyone else that disagrees with him.
    Back in the 60′s that you referenced, the media was pretty evenly divided on the political parties. Not so today. The media elected Obama in 2008 and they are continuing to bust their tails this year as well. Without the biased media…Obama actually would be “run out of office instead of us having to “vote him out” in 2012.
    George HW Bush was voted out because of one promise he made and broke. Can you even begin to count the number of promises that Obama has broke? And the difference is…nobody in the media is about to tell the public about all his broken promises. It’s the media keeping the bubble inflated.

      AARP became a tool of the Democratic Party rather than the elderly. Every day I get an email from the AARP, so they must be feeling the heat for endorsing Obamacare which is great for those living on unearned entitlements, but not for those of us who got nailed 15% of our earnings for 35 to 40 years to receive the promised benefits of Social Security and Medicare after we retired, but no Democrat could resist stealing from all the pension funds managed by government to fight a war on poverty and a war in VietNam to stop the spread of what we have now voted into office.
