Washington Post columnist and Fox News Channel regular Charles Krauthammer said the situation is far simpler. He said instead it was a show of their lack of intelligence and lack of originality.
Well, it certainly is a spitting and the sputtering of people who are, whove been deeply defeated, Krauthammer said. I mean, they were routed. They were up against a small minority of one half of one-third of the Congress and they got they lost everything. They got routed. Look, this was their Agincourt, you know, Henry V outnumbered by the French, three to one. The opposition, the liberals, hold the Senate. They hold the White House. They hold the media, which had been leaking and parroting the White House line all the way through, and they still got defeated.
I think this is sort of a pathetic response. If you have no arguments, what do you do? Ad hominems. You attack, you throw names out. But I have one slight disagreement with you [about this] being a conspiracy. I dont think these people have the wherewithal to orchestrate a three-car motorcade. The reason for the repetition is lack of intelligence and lack of originality. These are people who are slothful.
Despite Krauthammers low regard for the Tea Partys left-wing detractors, OReilly insisted talking points were still circulating, which suggested a concerted effort. Krauthammer dismissed that notion.
Look, what it means to me is youve got people with no intelligence, no originality, no imagination, he said. They are sputtering. They have lost. No arguments. What do they do? They want ad hominems. They want epithets. So, somebody uses it on the air Ah ha, thats a good one. Ill use it. I dont credit them [with] the intelligence or the sort of, what it takes to put together a conspiracy.
They may not pull it off, but I think that's their plan.
I love how he puts a string of words together so effectively.
Who/What is Denethor?
Liberal Jews just hate it when Christians do anything.
There is a good chance we’ll hit the debt ceiling again before the ‘12 election. It will be the mother of all battles.
Time to raise up good Tea Party candidates, primary everyone who voted for this bill, and hope for some luck.
Nothing else can explain this “win”.
I could be wrong, but he seems to be refereing to democrats, not the Tea Party... they are the ones throwing out the terrorist label.
I read wrong, thought it said Krout slammed the “Tea Party’s” lack of intelligence(which, I guess, proves MY lack of intelligence... lol).
Retirement on the horizon?
In the book, or in the movie?
“Who/What is Denethor?”
Denethor II of the House of Húrin is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Return of the King, which is the third and final part of his novel.
Denethor was not the sharpest knife outside of Mordor, and it appears that neither is the vaunted “K”.
What the hell are you talking about?
The Kraut is retarded.
His analogy is a glowing example of the total lack of leadship for mac, the crybaby liar, daddy.
Has no plan, will never have a plan and will not ever shgow leadership he will just vote “Present” and therefore accept no blame for anything and be able to throw ANYONE under the bus not matter how much of a willing slave they have been fo him.
It is always about HIM, FIRST, LAST AND ALWAYS HIM.
Kraut is not slamming the Tea Party Movement.
He is slamming those who attack the Tea Party Movement.
From what I remember, the Kraut has not been a fan of the Tea Party folks,
so your mistake is highly understandable.
