Fox Contributor needs to GO

Juan Williams on Fox News Sunday said the passage of Missouri's anti-ObamaCare ballot initiative last week is irrelevant because only older white people voted for it.
Now is that a racist statement?

Then why say it?
Now only 23% voted in the primary, which is pretty typical for a primary.
And some will say that only 16% voted in favor.
Of course the left tries to diminish the referendum of Obamacare in MO. 16% IS 71% of the total vote and a clear 'indicator' of the mood trend in Missouri.

Discussing the issue on "Fox News Sunday," the liberal FNC contributor said, "As far as the Missouri vote, you get 70 percent inside an echo chamber of older white people, no not in St. Louis not in Kansas City, saying, 'Oh yeah, we don't like a requirement that everybody has to have healthcare even though the hospitals in Missouri say it's gonna drive up our costs.'"
Host Chris Wallace seemed somewhat stunned by this and asked, "What happened to respect for democracy?"
When Williams elaborated saying that he believes this will eventually be decided by the courts, Liz Cheney rightly scolded her colleague, "I think it is stunning you and the White House are unwilling to
heed the votes of the people in Missouri"
On top of that, Juan said he hates to inform you (to Wallace) of this, you should know this as our anchor.

I have to give Chris Wallace credit for keeping it light-hearty.
I would have told Juan to go kiss my "old white" ass.

Williams is an old hold over from '08 when he was bashing Obama as much as anyone was...that is until Obama became a serious nominee.

Yes, Williams should go because his mind has been warped by the kool-aid and he doesn't seem to understand his own racist dialogue when he speaks it.

I just can't stand the guy period. I understand Fox is fair and balanced and all that, but this guy fills in for some hosts, like O'Reilly and turns on and off his liberal talking points like a light switch, but to make a comment like that, when the left calls the Tea Party racist is just flat out wrong.
When Juan is On, I turn off.
