Walter E Williams predicts an OBAMA win in 2012, and here is why: BOGUS! SEE LINK
Walter E. Williams ^ | 04/2011 | Walter E. Williams

MOD NOTE: WALTER E. WILLIAMS DID NOT WRITE THIS!!

Walter E. Williams, (born 1936 in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania ) is a conservative American economist, commentator, and academic. He is the John M Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University , as well as a syndicated columnist and author.

Can President Obama be defeated in 2012? No. He can't.

I am going on record as saying that President Barak Obama will win a second term. The media won't tell you this because a good election campaign means hundreds of millions (or in Obama's case billions) of dollars to them in advertising. But the truth is, there simply are no conditions under which Barak Obama can be defeated in 2012.

The quality of the Republican candidate doesn't matter. Obama gets reelected.

Nine percent unemployment? No problem. Obama will win.

Gas prices moving toward five dollars a gallon? He still wins.

The economy soars or goes into the gutter. Obama wins.

War in the Middle East ? He wins a second term.

America's role as the leading Superpower disappears? Hurrah for Barak Obama!

The U.S. government rushes toward bankruptcy, the dollar continues to sink on world markets and the price of daily goods and services soars due to inflation fueled by Obama's extraordinary deficit spending? Obama wins handily.

You are crazy Williams. Don't you understand how volatile politics can be when overall economic, government, and world conditions are declining? Sure I do. And that's why I know Obama will win.

The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics. And economics is the key to why Obama should be defeated. Even when Obama's policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority of the American people are going to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in the media will use to explain why it isn't his fault. After all, things were much worse than understood when he took office.

Obama's reelection is really a very, very simple math problem. Consider the following:

1) Blacks will vote for Obama blindly. Period. Doesn't matter what he does. It's a race thing.

2) College educated women will vote for Obama. Though they will be offended by this, they swoon at his oratory. It's really not more complex than that,

3) Liberals will vote for Obama. He is their great hope,

4) Democrats will vote for Obama. He is the leader of their party and his coattails will carry them to victory nationwide,

5) Hispanics will vote for Obama. He is the path to citizenship for those who are illegal and Hispanic leaders recognize the political clout they carry in the Democratic Party,

6) Union members will vote overwhelmingly for Obama. He is their key to money and power in business, state and local politics,

7) Big Business will support Obama. They already have. He has almost $1 Billion dollars in his reelection purse gained largely from his connections with Big Business and is gaining more everyday. Big Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money so long as they support his social and political agenda,

8) The media love him. They may attack the people who work for him, but they love him. After all... to not love him would be racist,

9) Most other minorities and special interest groups will vote for him. Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews and Muslims will support him because they won't vote Republican. American Indians will support him. Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic. And lastly,

10) Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama. And he doesn't need anywhere near that number because he has all of the groups previously mentioned. The President will win an overwhelming victory in 2012.

GOD HELP US!

-- Dr. Walter E. Williams, George Mason University

Absent a STRONG GOP nominee Osama will win handily in 2012.

And right now we have no strong GOP candidates.

That’s his point... all Osama needs to do is sway enough independents away and he’s in and all that needs to happen for that to occur is for the GOP to nominate someone from the current freak show that’s bubbled up tot he top...

Walter Williams is a black, DC-centric Democrat.

Under the current circumstances, his opinion is less than worthless.

Let's hope God once again pulls us out of the fire. If not, I'm seriously considering moving to any state that refuses to accept Obamacare and basically is willing to say no to the unconstitutional part of the federal government.

Anybody know any states like that, just so I can do some possible prep work?

I think a large amount of people will not even turn up at the polls because of disgust for Obama’s failure....

Do you have a link or am I missing it? Possible.

I also predict a relatively comfortable Obama victory unless the GOP can get it together soon.

This is a spoof! It was originally posted by MoveON.org, a Soros funded group, on the first of April.

He will win, if we don't see a credible candidate against "free trade" and big government. So yes, the political parties being what they are, he'll probably win.

A lot of the elements are true, but I hate see it falsely attributed to Williams, who is a much better writer than that. Right now, there are no Republican candidates available to beat Obama in 2012. Let’s hope some step up and improve their standing soon.

I don't care who wrote it. I think the "analysis" is correct, starting with The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics.

What part of the rest is wrong? The right is disorganized, but the left has a person they *know* to be hard-left who just happens to not be getting it done for the moment. That's because he isn't a leader and hasn't ever had a responsible job (until now) but I digress.

Again, what part of the rest is wrong?

Obama cannot be defeated in 2012

Apr
I just got an automated reply from MoveOn.org that they had mistakenly posted the article as authored by him. Sorry, folks. -Peregrine Their apology states as below:
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

We owe Dr. Walter Williams an apology.

We published an article that we thought was written by him and we have subsequently found out it was not. The title of the article we published was “No Matter What” and it was published on April 1. Please be informed that this article was mistakenly attributed to Dr Williams.

We admire Dr. Williams work and the article we published was not written by him and was, in fact, a “phony” that fooled us also. We hope, by way of this explanation, to inform those who took the article as genuine to know that it was bogus and that Dr Williams had nothing to do with the writing of the article entitled “No Matter What” that appeared under the column entitled “A Bad Dream” published on the RiteOn web site on April 1

We erred in not researching the real source of the article prior to publication and we erred in publishing it. We try within our means to avoid publishing phony material of the sort represented by this article and we are sorry we failed to catch the mistake prior to publication.”
