Even Fox News in a recent poll doesn’t think Romney can create jobs. The totals? 27 percent of Americans think Romney has a plan to revive the American economy… 41 percent of registered voters think Obama the better plan. That is a 14-point gap.
A revealing question in this poll was “Who do you think will do a better job looking out for you and your family during tough economic times?” 47 percent said Obama and 36 percent Mitt Romney.
“What is true in poker is true in politics. You can’t beat something with nothing.
And right now, voters are coming to the conclusion that when it comes to credible plans to fix the economy, Republicans have nothing.”
– Juan Williams, Fox News analyst

… once again put his foot in his mouth when commenting on singer Yusuf (a Muslim) and Ozzie Osborne at the Stewart/Colbert Rally:
“I KNOW THIS IS POLITICALLY INCORRECT, BUT I’D RATHER TAKE MY CHANCES GOING OFF THE RAILS ON A CRAZY TRAIN … THAN RIDE WITH A MUSLIM ON A PEACE TRAIN.”

In a C-Span interview this morning, Juan Williams was asked if the statement made by Harry Reid that referred to Barack Obama as “light-skinned” with “no Negro dialect” was at the same level of racism as Trent Lott’s 2002 comment “we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years” had segregationist Strom Thurmond been elected President.
Juan’s response seems to sum it up just fine:
“I don’t think Barack Obama would be in the White House if we had a segregationist country. That’s a major, major difference.”
You go, Juan!
