I made this prediction in January 2010

Sometimes it's fun to re-read my old posts. Here is one from January 22, 2010 (the link to the original is here).

Accusations of racism in the November 2010 elections


Today, president Obama is rapidly falling in the polls. It's easy to imagine that in November 2010, some Democratic congressmen will be trying to distance themselves from Obama as much as possible, and they will most likely proclaim their independence from the president. And it is also quite possible that Republicans will be running ads trying to link them with Obama. I imagine the ads saying something like "A vote for such and such candidate is a vote for the liberal policies of president Obama".


And this brings me to the second point. It is well-known that liberal politicians love to accuse their opponents of being racists. So, it is quite possible that in November 2010, some liberals will complain that the ads that link their candidates to Obama are racist, and that by invoking the image of Obama, the Republicans are simply appealing to the white racism and bigotry. This will be the re-run of their criticism of the Willie Horton ads - but this time, it will be Barack Hussein Obama who will be the boogie-man.


What do you think - is my prediction plausible?

Very plausible because they can't defend or run on their record. So I believe they will try to throw whatever they can at the wall to see what sticks. I find them quite pathetic.

The level of desperation of today's libs leaves little out of bounds.
