Why the Obama Bubble
Still Hasn’t Burst

Townhall, by Star Parker

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 10/8/2012 8:26:47 AM

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.

Comments:
This is a sobering look at the demographics that keep Obama afloat. We are becoming less white, less married, and less traditional, and all those factors work for Obama. My opinion: What we can possibly change is the married part, and that ought to be a priority.

"government plantation"

I was kicked off this site some months back because I used the phrase "get even with whitey" which now comes back as...

government plantation...

I also said Obama-Mao wanted to create a new class of people known as "bond slaves" which was not liked by this editor.

My my...how times may have changed as more and more people tire of the "bit chafing" that comes with Mr. Anti-America B. Hussein.

At least there will be a greater number of my fellow citizens ready and willing to fight for our freedoms...

While Star Parker believes that it is the changing demographics that is keeping Choom Boy afloat, I think the real cause is the media.
The 24/7 cheerleading from the media, the suppression of news that would be detrimental to Obama, the celebrity face time on TV with Letterman, The View, etc.
Let's face it...with a dumbed-down electorate that doesn't read, doesn't follow news except through 15-second sound bites, this works

I don't think skin color is our problem since plenty of pale people worship B0. I think it's millions of me-me-me people - everything is about them. They're immature and without morals - that's our country's real problem.

Americans are less intelligent, less moral and more needy (I am a victim). Unfortunately the new mantra has become "what can my country do for me".

Thank you for playing posters, but #3 is exactly right. How do I know you ask, because I agree;) But seriously, all of the other points are valid, but unless the media relentlessly beats the drum nothing changes. Perfect example, "Mission Accomplished" now lets make sure we accomplish this mission and get rid of the 0bama/Jarrett Regime!

I agree. People are getting to excited, too cocky. Look at what happened in Venezuela. Chavez managed to pull out a 10 point win. Much of that was undoubtedly fraud, maybe all of it, but he was able to do it.

It could happen here.

Libertarians and liberal Republicans have been proposing a truce on social issues in order to be able to concentrate on fiscal issues, but there is no such thing as a truce on any issue with the left. Brendan Eich offered the left a truce on gay marriage. He talked about tolerance and diversity and he got his head handed to him. His forced departure from the Mozilla Foundation, which is behind the Firefox browser, should be a wake up call to anyone on the right who still thinks that social issues can be taken off the table and that we can

In September 2013 the Guardian wrestled with a mystery. “‘No one can explain why a rich country has no food’ Toilet paper, rice and coffee have long been missing from stores, as Venezuelan president blames CIA plot for chronic shortages.” Actually, an economist named Brad Schiller tried to explain it in March of the same year. He said the shortages were the result of Hugo Chavez’s war against the Law of Supply and Demand. Writing in the Los Angeles Times Schiller wrote: “two years before his death, Hugo Chavez tried to repeal the law of supply and demand … Chavez despised

An unlikely alliance is forming between conservatives and liberals rightly asking whether it makes sense that America has the highest incarceration rate in the world. One out of every 100 American adults is behind bars, according to The Washington Post. Besides the tremendous cost of housing an inmate in a maximum-security federal prison—pegged at around $33,000 per year—the sheer volume of the U.S. prison population warrants a closer look. Why are so many people behind bars? The discretion federal judges used to have when sentencing individuals changed when Congress enacted the 1984 Sentencing Reform Act, imposing mandatory minimum sentencing for

Stark Raving Rahm Tell us

Posted By: Judy W.- 4/7/2014 7:44:19 AM     Post Reply
There are things that people know, or think that they know, about Rahm Emanuel: He is voluble, tireless, notoriously profane. And yet, when I met him last month, all the stories hadn’t prepared me for his intensity in person. A conversation with Emanuel is a physical experience. When he has strong feelings about a subject—which is often—he frequently sits on the very edge of his chair, emphasizing his point through proximity. At one point, he waved his finger inches from my face, Lyndon Johnson–style. Emanuel’s forceful personality is especially at odds with the surprisingly Zen atmosphere of the mayoral offices

In the online-only "Overtime" portion of his HBO show Real Time, host Bill Maher weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and did not react in a way that you would think. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 donation to support a ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in California. "Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don´t think it´s very fair," Carrie Sheffield of Forbes said. "Good point," Maher responded.

Stupid Interviewer Tricks

David Letterman, 67, announced on Thursday that he’ll be retiring sometime next year. But it’s been an interesting, if raw and painful decade for the chat show host leading up to his decision, particularly after he did something that Johnny Carson never did on air: he dropped the mask and revealed his misanthropic inner self to the world. (Snip) So it’s ironic — particularly given that irony was how he built his career — that David Letterman’s luster was permanently scraped away on October 27th 2006, with just one question from a very different television interviewer who happened to be

With waves of American college graduates about to hit the job market, it’s a good bet most of them don’t think of the controversial conservative author, Charles Murray, as their mentor. The W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and author of several books – including Coming Apart (about divided white America) and The Bell Curve (with Richard Herrnstein) – is hardly known as a warm and fuzzy job counselor. Yet, in The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead, a new primer for workplace newbies, Murray dispenses some of the best advice today’s overly coddled millennial grads haven’t yet heard. Related: The

Is it too farfetched to connect the dots between a brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch, the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment, and the overall economy? I don’t think so. In his piece, Mr. Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, “The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and

Last week, the national press reported on a 56-year-old high school biology teacher in California who plans to undergo a sex-change operation (i.e. cosmetic surgery) and to return to the classroom appearing as a woman. “To have a teacher be authentic ultimately is good for students and for the community,” said Jennifer Levi of Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, or GLAAD, an advocacy group in Boston. Sadly, the situation is far more complicated and confusing than advocates of gender confusion or their allies in the media will admit. Although the American Psychiatric Association dropped the diagnosis of gender identity disorder in

After months of criticizing what they see as a bullying state bureaucracy, Lou and Linda Pelletier — the parents of 15-year-old Justina — found themselves in a recent court ruling portrayed as repeatedly getting in the way of returning their daughter Connecticut. In last week´s ruling, leaked to the media, Juvenile Court Judge Joseph Johnston said the Pelletiers had been verbally abusive, made threats and generally impeded progress. The parents, he said, "either directly or indirectly, continue to engage in very concerning conduct that does not give this court any confidence they will comply with conditions of custody."

Despite what organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations say, the film "Honor Diaries" is about the abuses that women face around the world. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, human rights attorney Paula Kweskin, a writer and producer for the film, said it was clear CAIR had not seen the actual film and was trying to silence debate. “I mean, one of the most engaging parts about this film is that it centers on a salon of women engaging and talking candidly,” Kweskin said. “And they don’t all agree with one another, but they respect one another and they’re talking

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets
