Skip to comments.Soccer Dads: The Most Likely White, Male Backers (of Obama)
Posted on 05/16/2012 12:23:08 PM PDT by JOHN ADAMS
bored at work, I decided to wander over to the New York Times website to see how they're viewing the world today, insofar as one can see that from looking at things on their website accessible for free, as I (obviously) refuse to give them any of my money. I happened across this ridiculosity, which I post here for the amusement of my fellow freepers. It's one of a series of essays about what Obama can do to improve his vote-getting ability. My favorite paragraph:
Older, rural, white men, especially in the South, are probably out of reach for the president because race is likely a factor with them. So he has to focus on better educated, more tolerant, moderately upscale suburban men Soccer Dads. Both men and women find Obama equally likeable but they dramatically split on whether he shares their values, according to a recent CNN/ORC International poll.
but by all means read the whole thing (though wait til after you've fully digested your lunch).

Soccer Dads?Why don’t they just say it,metrosexuals.
When the time comes to identify the useless eaters among the population, the NYT subscriber list would be a handy guide.
LOL. Bathhouse Barry lost the soccer moms with his homo love fest. Being a misogynist he didn’t realize that the institution of marriage is a pretty big deal with married women. Messing with 1,000’s of years of marriage tradition and calling everyone who disagrees with you a bigot is a sure loser.
As a long time youth soccer coach and Dad, I wouldn’t let Obama anywhere near an unsupervised group of six year old boys.
The man is a phony, and the NYT a fish rag.
If race were a factor with them, then Obama wouldn't have won in 2008.
Hey, I think you summed up the liberal self congratulation cult pretty well.
Yeah, those educated “Soccer dads” don’t see race at all do they? I’ve got several as friends and trust me, they see it. Some as a “plus” (that “unity” bs from 2008) and others as a negative. So this stereotypical biased notion that only “rural, Southern, older” nonsense is just that.
BTW my liberal friends are “angry, white males” They bitch to High Heaven about Republicans/Conservatives, etc. but run for the hills to the safety of the R/C neighborhoods and send their kids to those conservative schools or to parochial ones. Hypocrites, you bet.
Fags works for me.
Soccer is the “sport” of the metro-sexual.
translation: p____whipped suburban husbands whose feminist careerist wives have kowtowed them into both driving the kids to nightly soccer practice AND voting for Democrats.
I chuckle when anyone suggests that conservatives don’t support 0bama because he’s black.
Like we’d support his Marxist policies if he were white,
or wouldn’t support Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, or Clarence Thomas because they’re black.
The thing is ... I don’t think they mean “metrosexuals”. Metrosexuals are urban girly-men. They already have the urban metrosexual vote.
They seem to think they actually have a shot getting votes of white SUBURBAN men. Regular educated middle-class Joes in the suburbs, with wives at home, kids in school, and a white collar job.
They’re deluding themselves. Not a lot of Obama voters in Katy, TX. Not a lot of metrosexuals there either.
When people think, they pick Romney.
When people feel, they pick Obama.
I hope Romney picks a veep that is actually, moderately well liked.
So giant wussy's...
I told my kids to stay away from any car and car owner that has that many bumper stickers. Regardless of what they say.
Reading the comments after articles like this really back up my thought that we may be too far gone to save this great nation.
The people who posted in the comments section are some of the most weak minded fools I have ever read. These people are a danger to this nation as a whole and I think the only solution will be to split the nation in half. The liberals can have their utopia and the conservatives will implement the economic model that will crush the liberal half.
"But if his percent of support among Soccer Dads is to get into the mid-40s, he is going to have to paint a much more vivid picture of how going forward will bring back the American Dream based not on higher spending and higher taxes, but on values like hard work and opportunity for all. And how those values will translate into a new path for success for themselves and the country."
In other words, the 'rats are scrod for this election cycle, since Obama will change his rhetoric and win their support when Hell freezes over?
He just locked-in the fag vote last week.
You and I agree on that one. ;-)
You know as well as I do that they wouldn’t let us depart and live in peace because it’s inherent in their ideology that people have to all live by their rules or... not live.
My granddaughter plays soccer, her dad, my son, is therefore a “soccer dad.” Oh, he’s also a senior US Army NCO infantryman. Do you think he’ll get a letter from the bastard squatting in our white house?
Kind of cute, but not suitable for anything except pets or mutton.
“If race were a factor with them, then Obama wouldn’t have won in 2008.”
Stupid (52% of America in 2008) knows no race/color limits.
I’ve seen Priuses with just as many stickers as these two. I always chuckle when I see one. I don’t think the owners realize how it makes them appear. But, for me, it’s always a good laugh to see idiots advertising their idiocy — so no one has any doubt. It simultaneously identifies all the causes on the stickers on the Prius as nutcase causes and sentiments! I half expect to see a sticker saying. “I’m a Looney Left Nutcase Who Escaped the Insane Asylum and I’m Proud of It!”
The Times has been in the tank for leftists and communists since the 1920’s when their “reporter”, Walter Duranty, was in the USSR sending back glowing reports about the glories of Stalin’s worker paradise. These reports were all lies. Duranty repackaged Soviet propaganda as news stories and the gullible editors at the Times dutifully printed them. Duranty was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his “reporting”, but it was revoked when the extent of his perfidy was revealed in the 1930s. The Times, however, has steadfastly refused to give back the Pulitzer.
because race is likely a factor with them.
Wrong criteria. It's because he's an anti-Christian, anti-free-market, Marxist Alinskyite. And on top of that, he isn't a natural-born citizen. There is very little evidence he is even a citizen.
I am sick and tired of this false narrative about Obama and Osama Bin Ladin. Obama did nothing to “hunt down Osama Bin Ladin”. That work was done by the intelligence operatives during the Bush Administration. These are the same people the Obama Administration has threatened to prosecute for violating the rights of terrorists.
Obama had nothing to do with planning or executing the operation. Obama was on the golf course when the Navy Seal Team was dispatched. Obama drafted documents to blame McRaven and say he had nothing to do with the operation if it had gone wrong.
Obama and the media have shamelessly bragged about the mission since it took place. Obama publicly bragging about the mission allowed the Chinese to capture the downed helicopter and get the technology involved.
The government knew Osama’s location since 2009. Obama had absolutely nothing to do with this. It has never been explained why Obama waited over two years to take action.
and last time it was “nascar dads”
This is just code for straight male voter which obama has totally lost because of his homosexual deathstyle endorsement.
Obama is abnormal.
straight men do not vote for abnormal
straight men do not vote for Obama.
One Bumpersticker makes you interested in something.
Two Bumperstickers makes you an activist.
But three or more, and you're just a run-of-the-mill kook.
Well, I’m a rural Southern woman, and I don’t consider those limp-wristed, nail-buffing, logo-wearing individuals MEN at all.
I have stated for decades now that the real enemy is the White Liberal
You forgot the barf tag...now I gotta mess to clean-up. And, I think I’m gettin’ the cold sweats...
There are one whale of a lot of these “Soccer Dads” that lost their jobs and remain unemployed thanks to Dear Leader, Barry Soetoro. Pray tell, NYT, why would they want to vote for this loser?
You forgot that he is also a gay, dog-eating, bully.
That is a good way to describe it. There was a guy in my neighborhood in the Seattle area that drove a green Lesbaru with a personalized license plate that said “FREEPER”. He had a ton of stickers on the back of that thing. I thought it best not to get to know him.
“he didnt realize that the institution of marriage is a pretty big deal with married women......”
I’ve posted here recently that I have a gut feeling that the gay marriage issue is important to gays (who are much more lilky to be gay men) because of a mysogynistic attitude in the gay community. This group of men is the most likely to come out with the b*&$# word and WH$@* word, and other anit-female terminology that normal, heterosexual men.
RE: the other issue - most normal little girls go through a time in childhood when they love the idea of a Prince Charming. That is why the Disney movies about Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, etc.., are so highly popular with that set of children. These so-called fairy tales always end up with a wedding, and “they all lived happily ever after!”
I have no doubt that radical leftists will eventually denounce the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Anderson for “brain washing our little girls into some sort of percieved slave mentality”. They will not succeed, however. Homosexuality is indeed against natural law.
My wife has one sticker on her Prius..."AppMom" (Appalachian State).
But we paid for that privilege (and paid, and paid, and paid...).
Give me a break.
I don't know about metrosexuals, but there's probably quite a few Obama voters there. Katy has perhaps the most leftist school district in the state. It also has a Soviet star on its water tower :)
