How many bears could actually afford a house in their market..,
I am a housing bear. Yes, currently the housing market is seeing a rebound nationwide. But I see how the cost of housing is still expensive relative to incomes. I see how there has been unprecedented market distortion due to the federal government and federal reserve in proping up housing values.
I already own a house (almost paid off). I could easily buy a second large house with a sizeable down payment. I will not do so until there are interest rates and home values are near historical norms. I just hate groupthink and economic cheerleading. That's my motivation.

Wal-Mart says payroll tax hike crashed sales,
Well. I don't know if you are being sarcastic when blaming Obama. So many people do that on reflex on this forum. The payroll tax cut was his idea anyway. And it was a bad one. Isn't Social Security projected to go bankrupt? So cut the revenue stream into it?

Will the reflating housing bubble also burst?,
All things being equal yes, however in this case mortgage interest rates are a fraction of what they were in 2006 meaning 75% of peak is actually 100%+ of peak measured by monthly mortgage payments.
Aha. You finally admit the truth. This is a bubble created by record low interest rates. And it will actually be a greater bubble (and eventual collapse) than the last.
