President Obama be defeated in 2012? No,
he can't. I am going on record as saying
that President Barak Obama will win a
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.
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.
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
are crazy Williams. Don't you understand
how volatile politics can be when
overall economic, government, and world
conditions are declining? Sure I do.
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.
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.
reelection is really a very, very simple
math problem. Consider the following:
Blacks will vote for Obama blindly.
Period. Doesn't matter what he does.
It's a race thing. He's one of us,
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 coat
tails will carry them to victory
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
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
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.
