(PresidentialInsider.com)- On Monday, Juan Williams, the fussy, tiresome Democrat co-host of “The Five,” was back at The Hill writing yet another fist-waving op-ed.
This time, Williams wants Republicans to know that they may succeed in having Roe v. Wade overturned in the Supreme Court, but in the end, Democrats would get payback, thanks to newly confirmed Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Yes, sir. KBJ will singlehandedly restore abortion rights to the country, even though she will be only one of three liberal justices on the Supreme Court.
Williams isn’t quite clear how Jackson will accomplish this goal, but trust him, her day is coming!
Plus, and Williams bets Republicans hadn’t thought of this, if the conservative majority on the Court does rule in favor of the Mississippi law, threatening Roe v. Wade, it will hurt Republicans in the Midterm elections.
That’s probably unlikely, but never expect whip-smart analysis from Juan Williams.
Williams, like a lot of breathless pro-abortion liberals, seems to be under the misguided notion that overturning Roe would instantly make abortion illegal in all fifty states. It won’t.
And while Williams is right that most voters oppose banning all abortion, an end to Roe wouldn’t do that. Instead, it would leave abortion restrictions up to each state. Some states will lift all limits on abortions while other states may restrict abortions after a certain number of weeks. It’s called Federalism.
But Williams is certain that plenty of Democrats will be running midterm campaign ads featuring those evil Trump judges Gorsich, Kavanaugh, and Barrett warning that those monsters are about to take away your abortion rights.
He’s probably right about that. Democrats always campaign on stuff most voters aren’t focused on. But if Williams believes those kinds of ads will convince voters to reelect the people who drove inflation to a 40-year high and increased the cost of food, gas, and home heating, he’s even more out of touch than we thought.
Williams also points out that corporate America would be pretty miffed if Roe v Wade is overturned as if somehow that is a viable reason for voters to elect Democrats instead of Republicans in the midterms.
Has Williams not followed how Disney destroyed its reputation by standing up against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill that enjoys broad majority support among voters?
The “don’t make corporations angry” argument might have worked in 2004, but it is useless in 2022.
