Skip to comments.Juan Williams Predicts Obama Landslide, Calls GOP Presidential Field A “Wasteland”
Posted on 02/22/2010 2:53:38 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
Juan Williams has absolutely no faith in the 2012 Republican presidential field. He brought a healthy dose of fair and balanced to the FOX News Sunday Panel Plus online-exclusive segment yesterday, where he predicted to his bemused colleagues that, despite their high hopes, if they didnt find a respectable candidate soon, Barack Obama would win reelection in a landslide.
While the rest of the panel Bill Kristol and Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, NPRs Mara Liasson, and host Chris Wallace shrugged it off with laughter, it was a pretty fearless point to make riding on the heels of one of the most successful CPACs in recent memory and in a year where dissatisfaction with the Democratic Party has fed a massive Tea Party resistance movement and launched Republican Scott Brown from Massachusetts into the Senate.
Williams seemed to have been pushed into making this argument not by the successes of Sarah Palin or propositions that Mitt Romney still has a viable shot at the presidency, but at Kristols suggestion that Texas governor Rick Perry, who has advocated for Texas secession in the not-so-distant past, could make a splash in the presidential pool. While Romney and Mike Huckabee have the traditional advantage of being runners-up from 2008, Kristol argued, Perrys decade in the governors seat would put him in a pretty strong position to run for President.

Fox needs to fire that idiot.
Juan continues to leave love bites on Obummer’s backside.
I didn’t think he was as dumb as Eleanor Clift, but now I’m not so sure.
Juan is an airhead.
Why would anyone expect Democrat Juanita Williams to have ANY respect for a GOP lineup? The rest of the article after that is just that - bullshit.
Considering the job that Obama’s doing, I think even John McCain could beat him in 2012.
Sounds like Juan is just projecting what he WISHES would happen in the next election.
On the other hand, you can’t beat something with nothing. And who do the Republucans have?
Why do republicans have to have a “respectable candidate” but democrats get to run a lying, wetback, muslim, America hater?
Give me an advocate of Texas secession over an advocate of Marxist economics anytime!!!
It’s Republukins...and the answer is, “nobody yet’.
Why?! We need the comedic input. On 1 show, he said 2-3 times that the President is up late many nights working on the problems we face. That just warmed the cockles of my heart. I’m not the only one who’s up late many nights worrying about the way things are? Boy, am I ever relieved.
There are many other absurdities, too, too many to list here.
I agree with Juan. I think Obama will win in a landslide.
The media will blame everything on Bush or Congress. Obama will get a free pass.
In fact, some racial event will occur (manufactured) that will stimulate the media, the hard left and the middle to vote for O.
All we can hope for is a Republican Congress that blocks his agenda.
Juan Williams The Textbook Token Black at Fox,the Guy is as Predictable as the Tides. He has made a Career out of Being Black ,Case Closed
Sounds like Juan Williams is canvassing for Robt Gibbs’ job as press sec’y.
Obama does have millions of dollars for lord knows who? for his campaign. He probably could care less about his own Party falling apart.
The headline doesn't fit. That's not really a prediction. More of a standard if-then statement: if you don't get a candidate, he will be reelected.
The landslide part is over the top, though. Obama may become even less popular than he is now.
But here's another way to take his comment: in a three-way or four-way race, Obama probably would be reelected by a large margin in the Electoral College.
Juan Williams also referred to Sarah Palin as “catnip for white, male Republicans.”
