Obama Win Inevitable?

Happy New Year to you few who visit here!

Recently I received the following in an email. While it claims to have been written by Dr. Walter Williams, he has disclaimed it. I can only guess that it was written a.) by a Democrat who wanted to discourage Republicans or b.) by a Republican who wanted to spur other Republicans to greater efforts. I disagree with the conclusions drawn in the message and have inserted my rebuttals in bold print.

No Matter What

NOT By Dr. Walter Williams

Can President Obama be defeated in 2012? No. He can’t.. I am going on record as saying that President Barak (sic) 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 (sic) 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 (sic) 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. He’s one of us,

There are more black conservatives than ever before and many present themselves as role models: Condoleeza Rice, Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, etc., etc. even the real Walter Williams!

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,

They don’t like the idea that their kids are already more than $40,000 in debt, that Social Security and Medicare may not be there when their kids need them. Many see their grown kids unable to get jobs. Furthermore, Obama’s so-called “oratory” could falter big time when he is effectively challenged. Last time McCain was too willing to grant Obama the benefit of the doubt.

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

Many liberals are disappointed with Obama, feeling that he didn’t go far enough fast enough. Some will vote for third party leftists.

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

See note re liberals above.

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,

First, illegal immigrants shouldn’t be voting at all. Second, many GOP candidates offer some pragmatic way to deal with the immigration problem(s) we face. Hispanics are largely Roman Catholics who don’t care much for the secular progressive bent of Obama and his adherents, vis. Bill Maher. Cubans in Florida and elsewhere don’t like Obama’s dealings with Cuba and Venezuela. If Marco Rubio is on the ticket, all bets are off. 

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

Probably true, but union membership is down. The strong arm tactics advocated by Obama’s friends Andy Stern, Richard Trumka, and Jimmy Hoffa turn off even some of their own union members. 

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 every day. Big Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money so long as they support his social and political agenda,

Hard to argue with this one. As Lenin said, “The Capitalists will sell us [communists] the rope with which we will hang them.” Perhaps they’ll wake up in time.  

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,

That “racist” spin has about run its course, and the so-called Main Stream Media is no longer the only game in town. If you’re reading this, you know it’s true.  

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,

“Overwhelming majority” is an opinion. Many Jews disapprove of Obama’s treatment of Israel. Otherwise, what we have here is a conglomeration of very small minorities.

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.

“Approximately half” is only a speculation. For the reasons stated above he does not “have” all the groups previously mentioned.
