I mentioned this discussion on yesterday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, but I didn’t have time to play the audio. Here, Juan Williams, claims that critics who state the obvious, that is, that Barack Obama is a lawless, out-of-control, imperial chief executive, are doing so out of racial animus.

How dare they call him “lawless,” and by “they” I mean everyone with half a brain and functioning eyes, not just those “racists” that Juan apparently sees everywhere.
“All I can do is look at the numbers,” says Juan. Let’s do that. According to Pew Research, more white people voted for Barack Obama in 2008 than voted for John Kerry in 2004, so where exactly is the racism?
Also on the panel, Ron Fournier, who helpfully explained that what most of us rubes out in the country hear when our betters argue: “The way the Americans are hearing this conversation, is they’re hearing you say that our president is a criminal and hear you saying that Republicans are racists.” Thanks for that explanation, Ron. Is this what it feels like to be one of those future people in that movie Idiocracy?
