Several readers of Israel Commentary reported to me that the article, supposedly by Walter Williams declaring that the Republican Party is doomed to defeat against Barack Obama, is a hoax. I am delighted to report that I just checked with the authority on veracity, Snopes.com and Snopes declared, as shown below, that the article was falsely attributed to Williams.
Claim: Dr. Walter Williams penned an opinion piece entitled “No Matter What,” about President Obama’a inevitable re-election.
No Matter What
(I titled it: The ignorant are going to bury us)
By Dr. Walter Williams
“Can President Obama be defeated in 2012? No, He can’t …”
Now we can say accurately, I hope, “Yes, he can.”
