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.

Juan is so far off base it’s not funny.
No big deal. He’s a Dem, but he WILL admit later that he was WRONG.
Juan is predicting that we will inherit the same election model as in Iran, Cuba and Venezuela.
He predicts we will become a tyranny by the 2012 election cycle not only that he hopes for that day.
The guy is a leftist radical that plays games on FOX.
He throws our side a bone once in a while then when it counts he spews his radical views as the good leftist he is.
Juan used to show some flashes of objectivity in the past, but more and more seems to have become an Obama cheerleader, about as objective as Colin Powell in recent months.
Fortunately, Juan’s never been right about anything.
He’s right about one thing; conservative candidates are a vast wasteland
Nah keep him around. Bill Kristol needs a punchimg bag to work out on. Sometimes I feel sorry for Juan. He looks like he needs a keeper.
Agree. I will not waist that hr listening to the crap on Sunday's show.
Hey, that's a pretty good line. Guilty, btw.
Now if he would only punch him.
What a maroon!
I have worrid the pubs won’t unite with a candidate and being around here increases that worry. Many trash anyone but their candidate. They don’t seem to see how high the stakes are in the next election. Thus you see people saying unless the candidate is theirs, they will stay home.
I have yet to see an exciting candidate but I will vote republican even if it is a warmed over stroked out John McCain. Anybody but Barry.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
Well, now that both Dodd and Williams agree that Obama will win in 2021, I’ll just stay home on election day, no sense voting if my vote will be overwhelmed by the Obama camp. (yeah, riiight.)
Desperation, Poor Juan.
Oooops, that was 2012!
While Juan’s views are faith based and not logical, who on the Republican’s side is a solid candidate?
Ron Paul who ran distant to John McCain?
Saral Palin? Not a chance.
I think Fox keeps Williams around for comedy relief.
He’s known as Wong Wei Juan in China. Loosely translated: Man who’s missing the chop in his suey.
Anyone claiming a Presidential re-election in 3 years time is talking out their ass. As Juan regularly does.
Maybe I missed it, but which of 68 posts provided any evidence to the contrary.
The post merely make personal attackes against Juan Moron.
Who is the Republican candidate? Forget who said it.
Juan Williams - Chris Matthews?
I disagree. Juan exposes himself well as a classic liberal. He's a good reminder of why conservatives have to remain vigilant and not be complacent. Besides, I love to watch old Juan come unhinged whenever Brent bitch slaps him with a cold dose of conservative logic.
I don’t know about the first, but the second seems a distinct possibility. He’d better not benefit from it. Plus, with an energized Republican Congress coming in in Nov., he might endear himself to the voting public by proxy. I hope it doesn’t happen.
Did Carter get a Rep. congress in ‘78?
Oh, poor Juan. It would be easier for him if he actually recognized reality. Who was the dems’ great presidential hope in 2002? No one. In 2006? Hillary, who’s now stumbling around third world countries accepting flowers from little girls. It’s a long time until 2012.
I also liked it when Brit Hume slapped him with a cold dose of conservative logic. He keeps talking though. It’s an asset to his side, but the man cannot be intimated.
My thoughts too, after the straw poll at CPAC...that trotted out all the same tired retreads.
We don't need the same old establishment candidates. We need totally new, outside the establishment, REAL Americans candidates...
Jindle (however it's spelled) NO
Paul? HELL NO!
Nothing more than a black guy who is hating that Obama is an abject failure.
Juan is actually not an unintelligent guy. He knows Obama is a failure and it will take an October surprise to get him reelected.
Juan is hoping to be Press Secretary in the next Obama administration.
Really, it’s embarrassing how he laps up the Obama Koolaid.
This whole thing about 2012 is so ridiculous because we an only know after 2010 is decided. The left wants us to keep talking about 2012 so we take our eye off the real prize. Please don’t fall into that trap.
Juan is stuck on Obummer stupid......the Obummer koolaid dribbles from his mouth everytime Jack Squat Obummer is mentioned. The only difference between him and Mathews is that Mathews has his own show and get’s a tingle up/down his leg when he see’s Jack Squat Obummer. Idiot.
Brit it is. My fingers got ahead of me.
Hell, I think Juan Williams could beat him in 2012.
That’s the feeling I get.
No candidate is going to be perfect.
We need to start settling on one and unite to elect him.
Maybe if so many were not mad that their candidate didn’t get nominated, etc and stayed home, the Marxist/Muslim wouldn’t be in the white House.
I despise McJuan, but I held my nose and voted for him.
Everybody who stayed home or voted for a third party candidate or did a write-in cast a vote for the muzzie.
Williams is delusional and cannot believe his savior is going down in flames. The mind is interesting that it has a tendency to only see its own position. All the Left Wing kooks have gone into a frenzy. It will get crazier before November and will be at a fever pitch in 2012.
I agree. Juan could be right. I know there is nothing running right now that I care to vote for.
I will not hold my nose and vote Republican like I did the last time, I would rather vote for someone I like whether they have a chance or not.
While I think that Williams is an idiot, I must say that there is not yet a candidate that MOST conservatives and moderates will stand behind. Perhaps one of the possible candidates will galvanize the middle and right, but it is not a sure thing. If a candidate manages to satisfy both of these groups then the Usurper will suffer one of the worst defeats in history. Time will tell.
He’s an honest man. His son is die hard conservative...and he - Jaun - with that and Fox’s association, seems to influencing him.
He will attack on the other side - this is one of my favorites...he aggressively defends Rush against a bigot black man. First you have this clip to set it up and then watch what Juan does the following night -
this next one is GREAT - Juan pulled no punches!
If the CPAC crowd picks the GOP candidate, Juan may be on to something.
What’s Juan on? Strong stuff whatever it is. The landslide would only come if 0 is the only candidate on the ballot. Wouldn’t put it past him either.
Or competing for a gig with O'Reilly.
Take your "pic:"
juan is black... obama is black... that is all that is going on here.
mmmmm Romney, huckster, Pawlenty, Barbour, Newt......did I forget any other slime?
We have plenty of time. Juan is trying to panic us into anointing someone now so they can have three years to attack them.
Nah, he’s a useful idiot. He makes the rest of the contributors look sooo good!
Juan to God: I was in the middle of the RR tracks between stations. I saw the speeding train coming. I can’t believe it killed me. It’s just not fair.
God (stifling a yawn) to Juan: Take the left stairway—down.
