    After months of missteps and outright political arrogance and stupidity, the Obama White House is experiencing what is being described as "freefall" in its loss of support among White voters.

    From the Los Angeles Times...

    New surveys show steep declines in Obama's approval ratings among whites -- including Democrats and independents -- who were crucial elements of the diverse coalition that helped elect the country's first black president.

    Among white Democrats, Obama’s job approval rating has dropped 11 points since his 100-days mark in April, according to surveys by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. It has dropped by 9 points among white independents and whites over 50, and by 12 points among white women -- all groups that will be targeted by both parties in next year's midterm elections...


    Pew first identified a slippage in white support immediately after a news conference in July, when Obama surprised many by saying that a white police officer had acted "stupidly" in arresting a black Harvard professor.

    Still unclear is whether Obama's slide in the polls is due solely to his policies, or questions about his personal background or allegiances...

    His background and personal allegiances were there for the discovering before the election, but I think many whites -- even "Republican" ones -- got caught up in the romance of voting for a black man. He also had the advantage of going against the combo of Bush and McCain, two of the biggest jokes going.

    Life under black rule rarely goes well for whites. Whites need to wake up and realize that there's nobody out there watching out for them.

    Just be patient. Probably in another month or so he will loose "all" support.
